Exiger, a global regulatory and financial crime, risk and compliance firm this week announced the appointments of two new associate managing directors to be based in the firm's New York office. Both bring extensive anti-corruption expertise to the firm.
Eunice Lee has been appointed as an associate managing director and will be a key part of Exiger’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Anti-Bribery and Corruption practice. An experienced compliance professional, Lee joins Exiger from American Express, where she was head of global anti-corruption. In this role, she was responsible for developing and enhancing the company’s Global Anti-Corruption Program, including policies and procedures, risk assessments, and standards for due diligence, third-party management, and gifts and hospitality. She also advised on anti-corruption compliance for mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures.
Before she led American Express’s anti-corruption program, Lee was a Director with the compliance team for the American Express prepaid card, foreign exchange, and international payments business units. In this role, she advised business and operational groups on implementing risk-based compliance and anti-money laundering (AML) policies and procedures, and managed multi-state examinations of the company’s money services business activity.
Additionally, Exiger has named Anna Friedberg as an associate managing director. Friedberg joins Exiger from the international law firm of Ropes & Gray, where she focused on anti-corruption investigations and litigation, serving global public companies and financial services clients.
