About Us

IRC Advisory is a bespoke consultancy, and is part of a powerful network of former Big 6 Management Consultants, CPAs, Regulators, Law Enforcement, Academics, CEOs, CFOs, CISOs and CIOs. Through this network, we’re able to deliver Big 6 caliber staff and work, plus deep capabilities leveraging academics for research, studies, surveys, and data analytics. Add to this the access to senior executives and government leadership – and it’s a very unique construct to deliver exceptional value to our clients – at a flexibility, responsiveness, and price well below the big firms with bigger overhead.
Because we’re unencumbered by the overhead and politics of a big firm, we can listen, and deliver to our clients – in a faster, more nimble, and truly responsive manner – unique versus our larger competitors.
Qualifications of team members include CPA, PhD, MD, MBA, AMLCA, CIP, Fellow at AMIA and HFMA, professors at NYU, Texas A&M, Mt Sinai School of Medicine, and more. The president is Kirsten Trusko, click here to learn more.
We take on both commercial work, and selective pro-bono initiatives. One of the latter is anti human trafficking. On this front, we are currently helping to drive the creation of a fusion center for collaboration and information sharing across government and the financial industry –  to identify, capture, and prosecute human traffickers. It’s a heinous crime and one where the financial industry can uniquely help by enabling a “follow the money” capability to more quickly and accurately get to the highest criminals in the network.
