John Kim is a Director in Control Risks’ Compliance, Forensics, and Intelligence practice in the Americas region. He is in the Data Analytics group and is based in Washington, D.C.

John has advised Fortune government organizations, corporations and global law firms by providing technology-driven solutions to mitigate critical risks. With expertise in data analytics and technology, and an educational background in accounting, John leverages database programming languages, and accounting knowledge to provide bespoke analysis of complex structured data systems on matters related to investigations, compliance and integrity risk.

 

John’s recent projects include:
  • A risk assessment of a steel manufacturer to investigate allegations of bribery and other instances of suspicious payments and assessed the risk of client’s susceptibility to corruption. Delivered a report which investigated the client’s payment transactions with regards to the allegations at hand, and assessed the client’s internal controls and susceptibility to general corruption risk.
  • Worked with clients to perform a risk assessment of their payment activity and due diligence of their vendors. This was completed through a SQL-based red-flag analysis of transactional information through a multi-pronged, top-down and bottom-up approach of the client’s accounts payable and banking activity information in SAP enterprise resource planning systems.
  • Engaged by a major energy provider to conduct internal investigations with regards to claims of project bid-rigging, bribery and kick-backs to government officials. John worked with the Data Analytics team to create a streamlined workflow that normalized, validated and loaded ERP data and implemented a set of red-flag queries to reduce the scope of manual transaction testing. 

 

Prior to joining Control Risks, John was a Managing Consultant with Navigant Consulting in the Disputes and Investigations practice with the Legal Technology Solutions group.
