About Alan

I am a Specialist Leader at Deloitte Federal Advisory working with both the Forensics & Investigations and the Regulatory & Compliance Service practices. I served as a member of the U.S. Government’s Senior Executive Service (SES) at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), in a regulatory and law enforcement leadership position, and also has considerable private sector experience working with commercial pharmaceutical and life science clients as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of two companies in the healthcare consulting and services space. I am a internationally recognized expert on controlled substance regulatory compliance, diversion, investigations, and law enforcement matters.

As a former Special Agent with DEA for over 27 years, I have worked with members of the armed services for many years in both domestic and foreign environments. I look forward to being an active participant in the American Corporate Partners program and would be honored to help serve veterans as a mentor in this important program.
