Her experience enables Exiger to provide greater depth in key practice areas, including compliance monitoring and advising corporate clients and financial institutions on ABC (anti-bribery and corruption) and AML (anti-money laundering) policies and issues. I am also thrilled that, working with Anna, Exiger will be able to play a part in the reformation of the New York City Correctional system,” said Jeff Schlanger, President of Exiger Advisory. “Anna will be a tremendous asset to our team.”
“Exiger represents the gold standard in helping its clients effectively advance meaningful compliance reform,” said Ms. Friedberg. “I’m thrilled to join the team at Exiger, and I look forward to helping the Department of Corrections rise to the challenges ahead.”
