Lessons Learned From Employee Fraud | Windham Brannon

Windham Brannon

As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported in November 2012 and followed up in April of this year,  an employee of the Woodruff Arts Center  defrauded the organization of $1.438 million over the course of five years. After the dust from the investigation settled, it was determined that the employee, the center’s former Director of Facilities, had in fact stolen roughly $1.1 million between 2005 and 2012. The fraud was discovered after the employee’s departure for unrelated matters, at which time a supervisor raised questions while reviewing some of the suspicious invoices.
