IAM014 – Fraud, Chaos and the Death of a Public Company (Part 3)


So far, we’ve covered the whistleblower allegations investigation, the deep investigation that left the company delisted, and the board bringing in many management consultants to fill key management roles.  On the road to recovery, a second whistleblower steps forward.

This is the third in a series of four podcasts detailing the events I faced at a previous employer. If you happen to be listening to this podcast first, you should probably go to Episode 12 and listen to them in order.
