PKF Littlejohn has appointed Robert Brooker as co-head of the company’s Forensic and Fraud team. Brooker joins the firm after over ten years at Transport for London (TfL), where he was head of fraud.  At TfL, Brooker managed a team of investigators, prevention staff and data analysts dealing with issues such as online fraud, security breaches, cyber crime and insider threats, reporting to both the Executive Committee and Board. 

Prior to this, Brooker worked at Bentley Jennison (now RSM) and Watford Borough Council.

Brooker is also chair of the London Fraud Forum, previous vice-chair of the Society of Forensic Interviewers (SoFI) and a member of Prevention of Fraud in Travel (ProFIT).

Now, Brooker will lead PKF Littlejohn’s Forensic and Fraud team alongside James Earp. He’ll focus on providing clients with a wide range of services, including data analytics-based fraud risk management, fraud risk workshops and procurement investigations.

Speaking about Brooker’s appointment, Earp said: “We’re seeing a growing demand for our Forensic and Fraud services, so now is the right time to expand the team with another highly-respected specialist. Robert’s expertise is widely recognised throughout the industry and he’s the ideal person to help me lead our fast-growing operation.”

Earp continued: “The cost of fraud to organisations is growing each year. Protecting against fraud and reacting effectively to it has never been more important. I’m looking forward to working with Robert to grow our Forensic and Fraud team and ensuring that our clients continue to receive the best advice available.”
