Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York
Dubbed “The Street Fighter” by TIME magazine in 2012, Preet Bharara oversees the investigation and litigation of all criminal and civil cases brought on behalf of the U.S. in the Southern District of New York. He supervises an office of more than 220 Assistant U.S. Attorneys, who handle cases that include domestic and international terrorism, narcotics and arms trafficking, white-collar crime, public corruption, gang violence, organized crime and civil rights violations.
Andrew Fastow, convicted fraudster and former Enron CFO
Andrew Fastow was the chief financial officer of Enron Corporation — an energy-trading company based in Houston, Texas — until the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission opened an investigation into his and the company’s conduct in 2001.
Fastow was one of the accounting masterminds behind a complex web of off-balance-sheet special purpose entities used to conceal years of massive losses. Enron declared bankruptcy in December 2001 after attempting to hide billions in debt and cover up failed ventures. Fastow pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy and served five years in prison.
Chris Mathers, corporate intelligence expert
Chris Mathers has spent most of his adult life working undercover for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the U.S. Customs Service. He writes about his experiences posing as a gangster, a drug trafficker and a money launderer in his book, “CRIME SCHOOL: Money Laundering.”
At the time of his retirement from the RCMP, Mathers was the senior undercover operator at the Proceeds of Crime Section where he established and operated a number of “storefront” money laundering businesses targeting Colombian, Russian and Asian organized crime groups.
In 1995, Mathers joined the forensic division of KPMG. In 1999, he was appointed president of KPMG Corporate Intelligence Inc. In 2004, Chris established CHRIS MATHERS INC., which provides crime and risk consulting services.
