OUR STORY

A message from the CEO

It was 2019; I had just left EY after a fantastic 16-year consulting career, assisting global companies in building proactive compliance monitoring and data analytics platforms, including ABInBev’s BrewRIGHT. Additionally, I played a crucial role in helping companies respond to regulatory matters such as FCPA, sanctions, and other white-collar crime and financial matters. The future looked bright as I headed back to New York to join Alvarez & Marsal’s (A&M) Investigative & Disputes practice and help them build out their data analytics capabilities. 

At the end of 2019, when I joined A&M, we had a great team in place, excellent infrastructure, a renowned brand name, and fantastic leadership support. However, one thing was missing – I needed a technology platform to automate many of the manual processes that made traditional data analytics procedures too time-consuming and cost-prohibitive. 

Enter the beginning of konaAI.
