- Former Scotland Yard Detective, Grahame White, aims to grow membership and foster public/private sector cooperation
MIAMI, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) announces its new European Head of Operations, Grahame White. In his role, White aims to grow ACAMS European membership and help the organisation meet the needs of European anti-financial crime professionals by providing quality information, professional training, and enhanced networking opportunities. White's other organisational objectives include introducing new speakers and subject matter to ACAMS' members, and creating a transparency of information between the public and private sectors.
White cites his career in law enforcement as playing a key role in his leadership style: "Having spent my career at Scotland Yard, I know first-hand how critical the symbiosis is between the public and private sectors." White continues, "One of my primary initiatives is to break down barriers that otherwise inhibit investigations and enable the illicit activities that we are all actively seeking to combat."
Prior to joining ACAMS, White's career in London's New Scotland Yard included 30 years of service at the National Terrorist Financial Investigation Unit and the Metropolitan and City Police Company Fraud Departments. While there, White held key positions in several high-profile investigations, including the 7/7 London Transportation Network Suicide Bombings, the 2006 Transatlantic Aircraft Plot, and Operation Crevice, the longest trial in UK Criminal History.
John J. Byrne, CAMS, Executive Vice President at ACAMS, says of White's new role, "We are confident that Grahame's extensive law enforcement career will reinforce ACAMS' commitment to our European private and public sector colleagues. As the first law enforcement professional on ACAMS' senior staff, Grahame brings with him a unique perspective to the organisation and the liaison between EU professionals and the association."
