Eric Feldman

Eric Feldman joined AMI in January 2011 as Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Corporate Ethics & Compliance Programs

Mr. Feldman received his undergraduate degree in Political Science from The American University, a Certificate in National Security and Intelligence from Harvard University Kennedy School of Government and attended the Federal Executive Institute.

In which of AMI's service areas have you worked? What are some of your most interesting cases?

Based on my U.S. Government background, I initially focused on bringing the first Suspension and Debarment cases to AMI. One of the first was the Booz Allen Hamilton case, where the company was suspended due to violations of the Procurement Integrity Act. Several other government contracting cases followed, as well as USAID international cases, DoJ FCPA, and several proactive assessments.

What aspect(s) of AMI's work are you personally most passionate about, and why?

I’m passionate about AMI’s ability to add value to the companies we monitor. I follow the same approach as when I was a Federal Inspector General: “Independence and collaboration are NOT mutually exclusive.”  We bring incredible expertise and perspective to the table to not only monitor the terms of the Agreement, but to help strengthen the company’s ability to prevent ever getting back into the situation that caused the government action. This includes our ability to benchmark a company’s program against others we have seen in similar industries and circumstances.

My measurement of success is completing the monitorship by leaving the company stronger and better than before. There is no greater compliment than receiving such feedback from the companies we monitor.

In what ways does your personal expertise complement our services?

I spent the better part of my 32 years of government service in an oversight role, primarily conducting or leading audits and investigations of government contractors. On the investigative side, this work often results in prosecutions and recoveries. Working with AMI enables me to go a step further: to help companies build the kind of corporate culture and compliance structure that helps PREVENT fraudulent activity.

Based on your experiences, what would you like prospective clients to know about AMI?

Prospective clients should know that because monitoring and independent, proactive assessments are all that we do, we are committed to doing it right and adding value to every client we serve. We have built a reputation of independence, expertise, and excellence that resonates with government agencies and regulators, and companies across a wide variety of industries.

Do you teach and/or conduct seminars, speak at conferences, or serve on boards?

In the recent past, I have been a regular speaker at national conferences of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners and the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics. I have taught a variety of fraud prevention and compliance courses as part of the teaching faculty of the ACFE. I am also a Regent Emeritus of the ACFE. I also helped develop and teach an online class in Compliance at the Santa Clara School of Law, and served on the Board of Directors of the Association of Inspectors General for over a decade.

What interests do you have outside of work?

As empty nesters, my wife and I enjoy splitting our time between our home in Redondo Beach, California, and our timeshare property in Hawaii, as well as regular trips to Mexico. Sitting on the beach reading a good book and sipping an adult beverage is both my favorite leisure activity and my retirement goal.

When in the Los Angeles area, I enjoy live music venues, musical theater, comedy clubs, and gardening.
