Managing Director EMEA,
Kevin Braine is Manag- ing Director and Head of Kroll’s Compliance practice in EMEA, based in the London office where he has extensive
experience assisting clients in areas such as pre-transaction due diligence, hostile M&A support activities, third party agent screening,

Among his greatest accomplishments, he counts “overseeing the way

last year and getting some fantastic
talent to join the team,” he says.

with—supportive, innovative and
ambitious line managers, collabo-

members, and clients who are genu-
ine in their desire to ensure that their
organizations do the right thing when
working with third parties—is one of
the biggest factors to my success.”

sified team of talented consultants—
is one of the things he enjoys most
“I love heading a team focused on
detecting and preventing fraud and cor-

comes with working with companies
operating in a huge range of sectors and
from a large number of locations.”
Meanwhile, Braine has managed nu-
