Kroll Advisory Continues Asian Buildout, Relocates Two Execs To Singapore

Kroll Advisory Solutions continues its Asian buildout with the relocation of two managing directors to its Singapore hub.

Effective immediately, Omer Erginsoy, senior managing director, moves from the London office to Singapore to lead the Asia-Pacific advisory business. Erginsoy joined the Kroll Advisory Solutions in 2002 as head of operations in London.

Also moving to Singapore is Stefano Demichelis, associate managing director for the investigations practice in London. In his new role, Demichelis will focus on developing data-mining techniques to facilitate fraud investigations. He reports to Penelope Lepeudry, managing director of the investigations and dispute practice in the South East Asia.

"Since 2009, cross-border deal traffic increased from 97 transactions worth $15 billion to 194 worth $51 billion in 2012. Singapore is the gateway to a region that is seeing explosive inward investment growth," said Erginsoy in a statement.

The moves come on the heels of Jason Wright's relocation from Singapore to become the head of its Hong Kong headquarters.
