Johan van der Walt was a Senior Managing Director at FTI Consulting and led Johannesburg's Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment.
It is with great sadness to inform you that Johan passed away on the 16th of August 2021. He joined FTI Consulting South Africa in 2017 to help establish our newly formed Forensic and Litigation Practice in South Africa. Johan was a pioneer of the forensic accounting profession in South Africa, devoting more than 30 years of his life towards the pursuit of truth and justice.
Johan was a leading investigator and expert witness in numerous high profile, complex and multi-jurisdictional cases. He was never intimidated by the power or influence of the suspect, or the complexity of the case. An entire generation of forensic practitioners will remember Johan with great fondness and respect. It's the end of an era and the passing of a legend.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with Johan's wife, his three sons, his family and everyone that had the pleasure of knowing him.
