Jesse Sucher is an associate principal in the Forensic Services Practice of CRA. He draws on over a decade of leadership and investigative experience in government to help companies seeking an edge when navigating geopolitical risks like sanctions, investment screening, and other complex issues at the nexus of business and national security.
Before joining CRA, Jesse held several senior positions at the United States Department of the Treasury. He was Deputy Director and a founding member of the first-ever enforcement arm of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), where he played a key role in the modernization of CFIUS compliance and enforcement practices. Jesse also served as Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary of Investment Security, which covers CFIUS and the incipient outbound investment screening program.
Prior to CFIUS, Jesse spent several years with Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), where he led efforts across a number of national security priorities. He was deeply involved in the development and implementation of sanctions policies, targeting efforts, enforcement cases, as well as the strategic integration of sanctions within Treasury’s broader work to combat illicit finance.
