Dr. Linda Chase of BW's Business Division has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Cleveland area chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). The world's largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education, ACFE works to reduce the incidence of fraud and white-collar crime particularly in the business world.

"When our faculty members take on leadership roles in professional organizations, they are exposed to the most current trends and leading edge thinking in their fields," said John Lanigan, Dean of BW's School of Business. "Our students benefit by learning more about the challenges and opportunities that companies are facing in an increasingly competitive global economy."

Dr. Chase has extensive experience in the business world, working with financial statement preparation and consolidation for both private industry and public accounting firms before joining BW as a full-time professor. She also is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the state of Ohio and a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).
