Security consulting firm, Risk Management Associates, Inc. (RMA), recently added an in-house counsel and gained a valuable investigative asset in Michael Epperly. Epperly, a graduate of Campbell University and former law enforcement officer, will serve as the firm’s Legal Counsel, focusing on corporate compliance and ethics issues. He will also serve as a consultant and investigator to the firm’s clients.
Epperly, a native of Roanoke, Virginia, received his Juris Doctorate degree in 2002, and served in various investigative capacities in Virginia law enforcement before moving to North Carolina to begin his legal career. Prior to his hiring by RMA, Epperly worked for the NC Attorney General’s office and as the lead investigator for the NC Innocence Commission, where he investigated post-conviction claims of innocence by examining new evidence not presented at trial. Epperly also served as an intelligence officer in the US Navy.
“I’m very excited to put my skills and experience to use in a security consulting capacity,” said Epperly. “Private sector security has always been important to me because of its bearing on our national security. The more we learn about the operations and financing of organizations that threaten our national interests, the more it appears that the business community will be at the forefront of our national security efforts. Whether it is through protection of critical infrastructure, sustainability planning, or compliance with the laws designed to deny financing and other resources to our enemies, the business community has and will continue to play an increasingly significant role in our nation’s overall security effort.”
Epperly’s primary goal is to work in partnership with RMA’s clients to find “innovative, workable solutions that enable them to meet their comprehensive security goals – especially where others have tried and failed or informed them that those goals were unattainable.”
