Deloitte has appointed Chris Bostock as a director in its financial crime practice.
With over 15 years’ experience, Bostock joins from the economic crime team at the National Crime Agency (NCA) where he was the threat lead for money laundering. He led the Joint Money Laundering Intelligence Taskforce - a public private partnership between the NCA and over 45 other public and private institutions.
Previously Bostock worked for the Serious Organised Crime Agency and the National Criminal Intelligence Service in a range of roles focussing on economic crime.
This new hire is part of the continued growth of Deloitte’s financial crime and cyber security practice, including employing an additional 500 people across Europe. Bostock follows the appointment of senior partner Rob Wainwright from Europol in 2018 in the firm’s European cyber security practice.
Tom Scampion, partner and financial crime lead for the EMEA region at Deloitte, commented on Bostock’s appointment:
“Chris is a high profile leader in financial crime prevention in the UK, with a wealth of practical experience and an impressive network at banks, government agencies and law enforcement. Appointing Chris in the midst of an unprecedented appetite for change within financial crime, will reinforce Deloitte as the market leader at the heart of economic crime reform and delivery to our UK and international clients.”
“At the forefront of economic crime reform is an acceptance of the fundamental importance of public and private partnerships in tackling financial crime. I plan to nurture partnerships to improve outcomes for both sectors in this rapidly changing market. I feel uniquely placed to help Deloitte achieve a competitive advantage in the practical delivery of change, here and overseas.”
Bostock is based at Deloitte’s head office, 1 New Street Square, London EC4.
