Nardello & Co. Bolsters EMEA Leadership with Industry Veterans

Global investigations firm Nardello & Co. continues to expand its presence in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region with the appointment of distinguished leaders. The company welcomes Chris Morgan Jones as the Regional Head of Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), and Sara Shaltony as Associate Managing Director and Head of Middle East and North Africa (MENA). These strategic additions reflect Nardello & Co.’s sustained growth, including the recent opening of its Singapore office and multiple senior hires across U.S. locations. Celebrating its 20th year in business this October, the firm has seen a remarkable 30% growth over the past three years, with women comprising 50% of senior leadership roles. 

Chris Morgan Jones brings over three decades of expertise in leading investigations related to complex disputes, fraud, cybersecurity, asset tracing, and reputational issues. As the head of Nardello & Co.’s EMEA region, Morgan Jones will oversee a team of investigators, including recent recruits Jenna Burton and Daria Plakhova-Freshville. Their clientele spans law firms, banks, governments, private equity firms, hedge funds, and emerging companies. Additionally, Morgan Jones is a renowned author with four internationally acclaimed novels to his credit. 

Sara Shaltony rejoins Nardello & Co. with extensive experience from a global business intelligence firm, where she led the MENA practice and headed the Dubai office. Originating from the UAE, she has devoted nearly a decade to the MENA region, offering guidance to clients on reputational and regulatory risks, multi-jurisdictional due diligence matters, asset tracing, and various business intelligence concerns. In the early stages of her career, Shaltony served as an analyst at Nardello & Co., handling intricate cross-jurisdictional investigations in MENA and Europe. 

“Corporate leaders, financial institutions and governments regard Nardello & Co. as the preeminent advisors for issues that threaten their security, business lines and reputations,” Morgan Jones said. “I am excited to take the helm in EMEA during this period of expansive growth and look forward to helping clients conduct their global business with confidence.” 

“Chris and Sara’s proven leadership and deep regional expertise position them to lead the charge of our teams in Europe and the Middle East, where we are strategically growing,” said Dan Nardello, Chairman and CEO of Nardello & Co. “As the firm prepares to mark 20 years in business in October, we remain focused on providing the very best talent to service our clients’ needs around the world.”
