Kreller Group, a Cincinnati-headquartered firm focusing on due diligence, trade compliance, and special investigations, has hired Gregory Massa as global director for engagement operations within the forensic accounting practice.

In his new role, Massa will facilitate the strategic management of the forensic practice’s specialized programs, according to release from the consulting firm.

Massa recently retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation after a 25-year career at the law enforcement agency. He led dozens of high-profile criminal enterprise, financial crimes, national security, and cyber investigations and represented the FBI across five Nordic countries – building partnerships and sharing intelligence and capacity building with law enforcement and intelligence services.

Massa most recently completed a three-year assignment as legal attaché Copenhagen, and before that was assistant special agent-in-charge of the FBI’s Indianapolis division, overseeing all criminal investigations. He also previously completed long-term assignments for the agency in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Before joining the FBI, Massa served as a communications officer in the US Army.

“We are very excited to add Greg's experience and qualifications to our team. His exemplary service in the public sector dealing with sensitive and international matters with the Federal Bureau of Investigation will allow us to further enhance our services to both our public and private sector clients," said Scott Shaffer, managing director at Kreller Group.

Founded in 1989, Kreller Group provides international due diligence, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) compliance, and other business investigative services. The firm has an international network of researchers, contacts, and professionals in military, law enforcement, government, and business. Kreller says its due diligence investigative resources can help companies better manage risk and compliance than databases – which are often incomplete or outdated.

Kreller Group has approximately 50 employees, according to LinkedIn.
