Boardroom Meeting

CRA is pleased to announce that Amanda Rigby has joined the firm as a vice president.

“We are excited to welcome Amanda Rigby to CRA,” said CRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Maleh. “During this period of vigorous shareholder activism and regulatory enforcement, her experience is of tremendous relevance and value to clients who are seeking to strengthen their corporate culture of compliance and confirm the efficacy of their compliance programs.”

“Amanda’s extensive experience consulting on corporate compliance with multinational and private equity clients positions her exceptionally well to help our clients either prevent – or emerge stronger from – material instances of fraud, non-compliance, and other misconduct,” said Forensic Services Practice Leader Kristofer Swanson.

Rigby has over 26 years of experience as a strategic professional services executive. Her consulting work has included independent fraud and misconduct investigations, regulatory compliance, risk management, governance, and business operations.

In 2016, Rigby was awarded the Chicago Business Journal’s Woman of Influence Award and she writes and presents frequently on corporate compliance risk, most recently at the Sixth Marval International Summit on Compliance, Anti-Corruption and Investigations, and the American Bar Association’s Fourth Global White Collar Crime Institute.

Prior to joining CRA, Rigby was a partner at a Big Four accounting firm, serving as Forensic Network Leader, One Americas Forensic Leader, and Global Investigations Leader. Rigby is on the Advisory Board for Ready Set GC, a program that provides peer support to new general counsel, and is a member of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), the Women’s White Collar Defense Association, and a founding member of Chief Chicago, a private membership network focused on connecting and supporting women executive leaders. Rigby has a B.S. in Information and Decisional Sciences and Finance from the University of Illinois.
