ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Linda S. Miller has joined Grant Thornton LLP as a director in its Public Sector Fraud Risk Assessment practice. Miller, a veteran of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), will serve public-sector clients seeking to assess and reduce the risk of fraud.
“We’re pleased to welcome Linda to Grant Thornton’s Fraud Risk Assessment team,” said Carlos Otal, national managing partner of Grant Thornton’s Public Sector. “Linda’s GAO experience and thorough understanding of strategies for preventing, detecting and responding to fraud will be a tremendous asset to our government clients.”
