Jonathan Shapiro, the founder and owner of Shapiro Advisors LLC, is a seasoned global compliance professional with deep experience in developed and emerging markets. With over two decades of experience, Jonathan specializes in conducting internal investigations, leading complex fraud and corruption investigations, and in all facets of corporate compliance. As the longest serving Integrity Compliance Officer (“ICO”) at the World Bank Group (“WBG”), Jonathan managed daily world-wide operations of the WBG’s corporate compliance enforcement function, which included evaluating compliance program effectiveness and determining whether sanctioned entities had satisfied required WBG conditions, thus warranting removal from the WBG’s public debarment list.
Jonathan has guided debarred parties in the design, adoption, and implementation of effective integrity compliance programs; monitored their operation and made determinations as to whether the required sanctions conditions had been satisfied.
He has counseled CCOs, General Counsels, CEOs, and Audit Committees on compliance program design, process and improvements, and in the monitoring of compliance programs and risk mitigation strategies, all to ensure best practices in accord with rapidly evolving international best practices. In addition, Jonathan’s role as ICO provided him with unrivaled insights and practical experience in the design, implementation, testing, and review of corporate compliance programs for companies of all sizes.
As a military prosecutor for the United States Navy, thereafter as a New York County Assistant District Attorney, and finally with over 15 years at the WBG, Jonathan has conducted numerous internal investigations around the world. These have included employee misconduct, complex fraud and corruption matters, as well as collusion. Jonathan has designed and led customized anti-corruption, ethics, human trafficking and international human rights courses for senior civilians and military professionals in fragile and conflict areas, and across Africa and the Middle East.
