Patrick Beeman is a Managing Director with the Data & Analytics practice of FTI Consulting and is based in Chicago. He has broad experience in the services we provide our clients, including 11 years of operational management, business development, engagement management, and technical consulting ranging from structured, semi-structured and unstructured data sets, systems, and infrastructure. Specifically, he has particular expertise in: detailed data mining, analysis, and visualization; review, comparison and improved performance of existing data systems; electronic discovery; data privacy and security; creation of customized technology solutions in the form of applications and tools. He has also historically led the creation, management and business development of data analytics practices.
Patrick has interviewed, collected, documented, and organized hundreds of structured data systems. Interviews were conducted with IT, accounting, and payroll client staff to understand the systems they were responsible for and how they were used. Patrick has reviewed thousands of client customer CD and brokerage accounts looking for specific types of activities and trends to properly determine the gain or loss the customer incurred in light of the financial fraud. He took a lead in helping create a systematic process with a team of 10-12 consultants and client personnel to standardize the review.
Patrick has reviewed trading and back-end systems for the largest commercial brokerage of commodities in the world. Provided confidence to investors that a rogue trader incurred loss of $141.5 million during a single overnight trading session was an isolated incident, which could not happen again. Performed full review of the trading and risk monitoring systems to understand how the rogue trader was able to execute unauthorized trades, and why the trades went undetected. Reviewed all 50+ front-end systems used globally to ensure appropriate controls were in place to prevent unauthorized trades. He has collected all trading data to analyze trading activity of brokers to determine historical extent of unauthorized trading.
Mr. Beeman was CIO/Senior Vice President of OmniVere LLC., a litigation support/e-discovery company. Prior to that, he was part of Navigant’s Technology Solutions practice in the Disputes & Investigation segment. Patrick is a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner, and holds a B.S. from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business in Accounting, Finance, and Business Economics & Public Policy (BEPP).
