A businessman who spent 5½ years in federal prison for embezzling $8.5 million from his employer will be the keynote speaker Wednesday night at a seminar hosted by the UW-Eau Claire College of Business.
The free seminar on business fraud will be from 5 to 8:30 p.m. in the Dakota Ballroom of the Davies Center on the university campus.
Nathan Mueller, an accountant from Minnesota, will share how he went from being a trusted employee to stealing millions from his employer, financial giant ING. From his insight as someone who exploited financial weaknesses, Mueller will offer best practices that businesses can use to deter and detect employee fraud.
Bill Miller, UW-Eau Claire associate professor of accounting, will then moderate a panel of business professionals who will discuss fraud and ethics programs in their companies.
The seminar is free and open to the general public. Those interested in attending are asked to register by Monday as seating is limited. Register online at tinyurl.com/ycppt56y.
