Bruner-Cox LLP is pleased to announce the launch of Veritas Solutions Group LLC (Veritas). Veritas provides a full suite of fraud prevention and detection services, including forensic accounting, employee theft and corporate fraud investigations, litigation support services, internal-control and fraud risk assessments, ethics and training. Leading the Veritas team is Gregory H. Blate. As Managing Director, Blate is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) with more than 22 years experience in accounting and auditing, internal-control assessments and implementations and fraud investigations, providing services to organizations and boards throughout the U.S. and internationally. Veritas’ services expand beyond those of traditional fraud and forensics professional services firms. “Fraud and unethical behavior impact many areas of an organization. We provide services to assist our clients in these areas,” said Blate. “In addition to more traditional services, we also provide a fraud hotline service, internal-control software and internal-audit outsourcing services, employee background check and screening services, as well as security and surveillance services. Veritas also works with board leaders to help them understand their fiduciary responsibilities and provide tools to ensure good corporate governance.” The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners estimates that typical organizations lose nearly 5 percent of their revenues to fraud each year. Steven O. Pittman, CPA, MBA, Bruner-Cox LLP Managing Partner, acknowledges the benefits of lost revenue prevention. “Fraud and unethical behavior are major concerns for businesses competing in today’s marketplace,” said Pittman. “Greg is helping our clients identify fraud before it happens. This partnership compliments our existing service offerings and provides opportunities for further growth beyond our current client base.” Veritas has offices in Canton, Akron, Cleveland and Detroit, and provides services throughout the U.S. and internationally.
