ACFE President James D. Ratley Honored by Security Magazine


Mandy Moody, ACFE Social Media Specialist

While Hollywood tabloid correspondents and entertainment TV show hosts make their guesses on what A-list celebrity might be sideswiped by the next up-and-coming, wide-eyed adolescent at the next Golden Globes, we at the ACFE are celebrating an award of a different kind. Our president, James D. Ratley, CFE, has been selected as one of Security magazine's Most Influential Security Executives for 2010.

Every year, Security magazine honors top security executives who positively impact the security industry, their organizations, their colleagues and their peers. Mr. Ratley was chosen for his leadership qualities and the positive impact he has had on the nearly 55,000 member-strong ACFE.

His profile, along with other honorees, is featured in this month’s Security magazine. The article is available (free registration required) here. He was also recognized by the magazine at Security 500, a conference for security executives, in New York last month.

This designation is just another achievement to add to Mr. Ratley's long list of accomplishments. In 2005, he was awarded the Cressey Award, the ACFE's highest honor, for a lifetime of achievement in the detection and deterrence of fraud.

Since being named president of the ACFE in 2006, Mr. Ratley has overseen the continued growth of our organization, while assisting in the development of anti-fraud products and services to meet the needs of members. He also serves on our faculty, adding his years of insight and experience to courses we offer to fraud fighters around the world.

Congratulations, Mr. Ratley!
