Himamauli Das, a senior managing director and co-head of CFIUS advisory services at K2 Integrity, has been named acting director of the Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.
Juan Zarate, global co-managing partner and chief strategy officer at K2 Integrity and previous Wash100 awardee, said in a statement Tuesday that Das will play a key role at FinCEN to help ensure the financial system’s security and integrity amid “heightened demands on the anti-money laundering regime.”
Das previously worked at the Treasury as counselor to the general counsel, assistant general counsel for international affairs and acting deputy assistant secretary for trade and investment.
His government career also included time as senior director for international trade and investment at the White House National Security Council and National Economic Council, deputy legal adviser at NSC and as an attorney at the State Department.
Jeremy Kroll, CEO and co-founder of K2 Integrity, noted that Das worked with financial crimes compliance, cybersecurity and risk management professionals to help the company establish a team in support of government, financial services and corporate clients worldwide.
