Erin Flannery Receives CFE Credential and Promotion to Manager
Auburn Hills, MI: Yeo & Yeo CPAs & Business Consultants is pleased to announce that Erin Flannery, CPA, CFE, has been accredited as a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and has been promoted to manager. A CFE is a specialist educated and trained in preventing, detecting, and investigating fraud.
“The CFE credential is considered the mark of excellence for anti-fraud professionals,” said John Haag Sr., CPA/ABV, CVA, CFF, managing principal and Business Valuation and Litigation Support Services Group co-leader. “Erin’s achievement demonstrates our professionals’ commitment to expanding our level of expertise in providing fraud prevention, litigation support and consulting services for Michigan businesses.”
CFEs have a unique set of skills that combine knowledge of complex financial transactions with an understanding of methods, law and how to resolve allegations of fraud. To become a CFE, an individual must pass a rigorous test on the four major disciplines that comprise the fraud examination body of knowledge.
Certified Fraud Examiners can improve an organization’s financial health. These professionals often collaborate with law enforcement and may provide legal testimony. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, “Organizations employing CFEs uncover fraud 50% sooner than organizations without CFEs on staff.”
Flannery, a graduate of the University of Charleston, holds a Master of Forensic Accounting. She is a manager based in the Auburn Hills office and a member of the firm’s Business Valuation Services Group and the Trust & Estate Services Group. Her areas of expertise include forensic accounting, management advisory services, and tax planning and preparation services for the firm’s business, nonprofit and individual clients. In the community, she volunteers for the Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society.
