Morgan Magionos is a Managing Director in the Forensic Accounting & Advisory Services practice within the Forensic & Litigation Consulting segment of FTI Consulting. She specializes in anti-corruption and money laundering matters, as well as a variety of fraud-related matters involving securities, investment, and other financial fraud. She is based in Washington, D.C.
Ms. Magionos gained national prominence when, as a Forensic Accountant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), she was assigned to the Office of the Special Counsel in 2017, where she led a complex financial investigation spanning four countries related to a $15.5 million tax fraud and money laundering by a former presidential campaign manager and others. She created exhibits demonstrating financial tracing of foreign and domestic bank accounts, identified and traced assets, and testified as a fact witness at a federal criminal jury trial in the Eastern District of Virginia which led to a conviction. The primary subject ultimately received a 7 ½ year combined prison sentence from multiple jurisdictions.
Ms. Magionos began her FBI career in 2010, investigating high yield investment fraud, corporate and securities fraud, mass marketing fraud, health care fraud, public corruption, fraud against the government, and transnational organized crime. In 2016, she joined the International Corruption Squad at the FBI Washington Field Office where she planned, directed, and coordinated comprehensive financial investigations involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and kleptocracy matters in concert with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).
She has presented on forensic accounting, money laundering, asset forfeiture and corruption on behalf of various programs in jurisdictions around the world. She presented in Seychelles on behalf of the FBI. She presented in Albania and Bangladesh in support of the DOJ’s Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development and Training program; in Macedonia in support of the DOJ’s International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program; and in Ukraine in support of the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Technical Assistance.
Prior to joining the FBI, Ms. Magionos was a senior auditor at Deloitte and led teams of professionals in the planning and execution of financial audits. Her clients included companies in the healthcare, manufacturing, non-profit, and retail sectors. Prior to Deloitte, she was an in-house accountant at an architectural firm.
Ms. Magionos received a Bachelor of Music in cello performance from Manhattan School of Music and completed post-baccalaureate studies in accounting at Portland State University. She is a Certified Public Accountant licensed in the State of Oregon, a Certified Fraud Examiner, and a member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
