Congratulations to our chapter Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Gary Mengel!


The Board of Directors was pleased to present a Lifetime Achievement award to Gary Mengel at our annual holiday lunch and meeting on December 11, 2012. This award is meant to honor the individual who has demonstrated the true spirit of leadership to his or her fellow anti-fraud professionals. 

Gary Mengel is currently the Chief Accountant of Enforcement of the Arizona Corporation Commission – Securities Division, and prior to that has many years of experience working in investigative roles for other state government entities. Gary is a founding member and lifetime member of the Arizona Chapter, and has also served a President, Vice-President and Board member. 


A quote about Gary: “Gary acts as a mentor to his staff and sounding board to the attorneys due to his lengthy career as a criminal investigator and financial expert in criminal and civil proceedings. Without Gary’s assistance, I would not have become a CFE nor joined this chapter.”

 Gary, thank you for all that you have contributed to the profession and to our chapter over the years.
