"Now more than ever, organizations are facing challenges such as complex global business fraud and corruption. Shining the light of truth and bringing transparency to the world's business and accounting practices has been the underlying theme of my entire career," said Piantidosi. "Along with the recent launch of the Deloitte Forensic Center think tank, joining the board of Transparency International USA is the capstone to my 20 years of advancing forensic accounting."
Piantidosi also serves as global leader for the Forensic & Dispute Services practices of all Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu member firms and their affiliates. In that role, he has built robust resources within the DTT member firms around the world that provide sophisticated forensic and technology services to many of the world's multinational organizations.
For the past 20 years, Piantidosi has been at the forefront of the development of the dispute consulting and forensic investigations discipline, helping to define the special skill set of investigatory experience, technological skill, and financial acumen necessary to investigate the growing incidence of worldwide corporate fraud. Piantidosi led the engagement relating to Volcker Commission's investigation of Swiss banks on behalf of Holocaust victims, which resulted in a $1.2 billion settlement and the return of hundreds of millions in assets to victims and their heirs.
Piantidosi earned his bachelor's degree from St. Anselm College and his master's degree from Northeastern University.
