Financial and economic crime is a huge drain on businesses resources. In the UK alone, the value of reported financial fraud runs in the billions. To indulge in such activity, criminals utilise the financial system to develop ways to launder, obtain or move funds across geographical areas. In order to wage war on such actions, many banks turn to the consulting sector for help.

One such firm helping financial institutions battle financial crime is AlixPartners. Since its launch in 1981, AlixPartners has become an international consultancy specialising in helping businesses address complex and critical challenges in the digital age. The firm’s clients include companies, corporate boards, law firms, investment banks, and private equity firms. As it looks to strengthen its financial crime compliance offering, the firm has appointed Tom Scampion as a Managing Director.

During his time at Deloitte, Scampion was elevated to the role of Partner, and before joining the Big Four firm he ran the EMEA operations for a US technology firm, focusing on information management. Scampion holds a Master’s degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics from Oxford University.

As a Managing Director, Scampion joins AlixPartners’ EMEA investigations and compliance services team. He will be based in AlixPartners’ London office, and together with Guenter Degitz, Managing Director in AlixPartners’ Munich office, will co-lead the firm’s Financial Crime business in EMEA.
