Your Presenter/Consultant is Kevin Sullivan, CAMS. Kevin is the founding co-chair of the Association of Certified Anti- Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) New York chapter and was the chair of the ACAMS Educational Task Force. He teaches CAMS exam prep courses, "Train the Trainer" courses, and numerous ACAMS certification courses. He has provided training through ACAMS and The AML Training Academy for numerous financial institutions, regulators, law enforcement, and government agencies including local, state, federal and foreign.

Coming from a NYC Irish home his path was either priest or police. Being too much trouble for the priesthood he joined his family legacy in police work. Kevin’s been working in AML more than 30 years beginning as an undercover narcotics officer with the NY State Police. It was then he decided to follow the money and was detailed to a major crimes unit where he began specializing in the financial aspects of crime.

Wanting to hone his skills Kevin acquired a master’s degree in Economic Crime Management and became a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS). Further, he is an advisory board member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners and member of the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators. His specialization with the NYSP didn’t go unnoticed and he was given a dual designation as a federal agent to team up with the FBI led Hudson Valley White Collar Crimes Task Force which led to an assignment with the NY High Intensity Financial Crimes Area (HIFCA) of the ICE led El Dorado Task Force in Manhattan. The El Dorado Task Force is one of the largest AML task forces in the world comprised of the FBI, ICE, US Secret Service, DEA, Postal Inspectors, NYPD, NYSP, Manhattan DA, US Attorney’s Office and others.

High profile organized crime and counter terrorist financing were the usual case load. Here he became the New York state money laundering investigations coordinator, a liaison between the business sector and law enforcement, and a lead instructor for ICE’s Operation Cornerstone. Following retirement from law enforcement Kevin broadened his work as an AML educator and liaison in the global arena by establishing The Anti-Money Laundering Training Academy. Through The AML Training Academy he continues provide AML consulting and training services to governments, law enforcement, and an extensive number of financial institutions addressing their AML and financial crimes compliance needs. In addition, he is the author of many published articles and the book, “Anti-Money Laundering in a Nutshell”.  Kevin's years of experience and knowledge put him at the forefront of the AML field. Therefor he's frequently called upon by print and TV news media for his expert opinion.  Visit our blog to view a few of those interviews.
