Alexis C. Bell, MS, CFE, PI

Alexis C. Bell, MS, CFE, PI is the founder & managing partner of Fraud Doctor LLC. She helps companies protect themselves from fraud by specializing in international litigation support, antifraud consulting, training, and board advisory. She is driven by the fact that every dollar lost due to fraud is one less dollar that could be used to help someone in need (e.g. shareholders, other stakeholders, NGO clients, etc.). The ultimate goal is to protect
organizations from fraud and assure funds can remain within (prevention) or return to (recovery) the organization, which are then used for the original intended purpose of accomplishing their mission.
Bell is the current elected Global Chair to the Board of Regents for the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) and appointed board member for the LexisNexis Fraud Defense Network Advisory Board. She serves as an adjunct professor in the Financial Crime & Compliance Management (FCM) graduate program in the College of Business & Justice Studies at Utica College. She is a champion within antifraud communities speaking at
conferences & delivering specialized training. She also produces a video podcast series (FraudCast) connecting antifraud thought leaders to global followers.
Bell successfully led the design and implementation of the initial Global Antifraud Program for a European public conglomerate with 165,000 employees. She then pioneered the first comprehensive Microfinance fraud risk management program covering 22 post/active conflict developing countries in the Greater Middle East, Eurasia, Latin America, and Africa. Both initiatives encompassed governance, fraud awareness training, fraud risk assessments,
data analysis, investigations, and communication strategies.
Bell spearheaded and chaired internal diversity programs addressing employee education and community outreach regarding both women's and Native American initiatives. She has been an active member serving on internal diversity & inclusion boards as well as external nonprofit boards supporting both antifraud and the arts.
