CVR Global LLP makes key appointment
CVR Global LLP, the leading insolvency, restructuring, and international fraud investigation and asset-tracing firm, has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of Kevin Humphreys as Associate Director.
Humphreys is a vastly experienced financial investigator and qualified HM inspector of taxes. He joins CVR Global from the National Crime Agency (NCA) Economic Crime Command where he was Principal Officer of Financial Investigations. The 52 year-old had been with the NCA from the very start, after having previously worked for the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and the Assets Recovery Agency in senior investigative team leader roles.
He has specialist experience in tax and civil recovery techniques to disrupt acquisitive crime and has also amassed 20 years of tax compliance investigations experience working for HMRC.
Humphreys will provide invaluable expertise supporting CVR Global’s Proceeds of Crime work and its forensic accounting and fraud investigation practices.
Humphreys said, “I’ve worked closely with the team at CVR Global over many years, through the operations I administered with the National Crime Agency and also stretching back to my time at HMRC. Having enjoyed a decade with the NCA and organisations under its previous guises, I was on the lookout for a new challenge and CVR Global is a perfect fit for my background. My new role will involve marketing insolvency and forensic investigation services through liaisons with UK and international law enforcement agencies and forces, as well as undertaking investigatory assignments as part of the firm’s developing forensic accounting and fraud investigations practices. Having the HMRC tax investigation background before specialising in proceeds of crime work has given me broad experience which should serve me and the firm well in this role.” Humphreys will be based in London and will support CVR Global’s wide range of services across its network of UK and international offices.
Kevin Murphy, senior partner at CVR Global, added, “Kevin is a very wellknown and respected figure in law enforcement circles and it’s a big coup for CVR Global to attract him to the firm. He will play a vital role supporting our insolvency and POCA (Proceeds of Crime Act) work and further developing our relationships with key enforcement agencies, both domestically and internationally. Kevin is also keen to help further strengthen our forensic accounting and fraud investigatory practices and we’re delighted to welcome him to the firm.” CVR has seven UK offices in London, Hove, Southampton, Colchester, Birmingham, Northampton and Jersey, along with offices in Gibraltar and the British Virgin Islands.
The firm is a member of GGI | Geneva Group International, which is consistently ranked among the top ten professional services associations in the world and has more than 500 members and over 700 member offices worldwide.
