Ernst & Young LLP announced the appointment of Tony Jordan as EY Americas Leader of Forensic & Integrity Services (Forensics). Jordan previously served as the EY US-East Region Forensics Go-to-Market Leader and US and EY Global Forensics Talent Partner Sponsor.
“Integrity is the cornerstone of success for businesses today. However, the risks organizations face on a daily basis, from misuse of consumer data and cyber attacks, to regulatory inquiries and compliance challenges, can quickly erode stakeholder trust,” said John King, EY Americas Vice Chair, Assurance. “Tony’s depth of experience helping clients navigate complex regulatory issues and litigation matters, combined with a strong commitment to building inclusive teams, makes him an ideal leader for the Forensics practice.”
Jordan leads nearly 1,300 professionals in the US, Canada, Mexico, Central America, South America and Israel, helping clients protect and restore reputations. He has more than 20 years of experience in forensic accounting investigations, fraud risk compliance, issues surrounding generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and general business-related disputes. Jordan also has extensive litigation consulting and auditing experience, and is a certified public accountant. Prior to joining the EY organization, he was a partner in a boutique litigation support firm, and before that held the position of Accounting Branch Chief in the Boston Regional Office at the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Jordan succeeds Brian Loughman, who has moved into the role of EY Global Forensics Markets Leader. During his tenure, Loughman and the EY Americas Forensics team expanded their technology businesses and introduced new service offerings, including managed document review, integrity diligence and the Integrity Agenda — an initiative designed to mitigate risk by creating a culture of integrity.
“The need for business accountability is at an all-time high, requiring everyone across an organization — from C-suite to entry-level employees — to act with integrity and fight against fraud, bribery and corruption,” said Jordan. “I am honored to be leading the EY Americas Forensics practice and working with our team to assist clients across multiple industries in developing processes to combat complex financial and reputational risks.”
