New York-based Big 4 firm EY has admitted former senior FBI official Jeffrey Sallett as a partner on its forensic and integrity services investigations and compliance team. In addition to his work with investigations and compliance in this role, Sallett will also focus on the legal communities across the firm’s national practice and will support activities focused on growing the firm’s government and public sector business.
Sallet launched his career in the EY U.S. audit practice and later joined Arthur Andersen’s forensic accounting practice, before moving to the FBI in 1997. During his time with the agency, Sallet combined forensic accounting techniques with traditional organized crime investigative methods to focus on the hierarchy of a New York organized crime family. He most recently served as the associate deputy director at the FBI, the agency’s No. 3 role.
“Jeff brings a wealth of experience along with a wide array of skills, including deep accounting, regulatory, government and executive management experience,” says Tony Jordan, EY Americas forensic and integrity services Leader. “He will be a great asset to clients, helping them balance business objectives and risks.”
