Bio | 简介

Mr. McDonell was the Executive Secretary of the FATF from 2007 – 2015. Among the many accomplishments at the FATF was the negotiation and approval of the revised FATF Standards, the development of a new, standardized assessment “methodology” for the global FATF network and the start of a new round of FATF mutual evaluations. The new focus of evaluation now extends beyond the technical implementation of FATF standards to examine their actual effectiveness —a dramatic change, which has enabled the strength of AML regimes to be clearly determined. During this period, the FATF Global Network was expanded to nine FATF‐Style Regional Bodies (FSRBs) comprising over 190 countries. Mr. McDonell managed and supervised the FATF’s new fourth-round mutual evaluation program and was the lead for the first evaluation under this new methodology (Spain).

Prior to FATF, Mr. McDonell he worked for the United Nations Office On Drugs and Crime (UNODC), where he was Chief of the UN Global Programme on Money Laundering. In addition, he was the Founder and First Executive Secretary of the Asia Pacific Group on Money Laundering (APG) established in 1998. From 1995 to 1997, he was the Head of the FATF Asia Secretariat, which was the forerunner of the APG.

With over 40 years of experience, Mr. McDonell is a lawyer by training and has had extensive experience as a federal prosecutor and in conducting complex investigations including being in charge of many multidisciplinary investigation Task Forces into organised crime cases both nationally and internationally. He also has had experience in private legal practice and as a university lecturer.

McDonell先生於2007年至2015年擔任FATF執行秘書,他在任職期間的眾多成就當中包括,曾協商與審批FATF標準修訂版本,也為全球FATF平台開發新的標準化評估「方法論」,並啟動新一回合的FATF相互評鑑。新的評鑑焦點從FATF標準的技術執行層面,擴大至審查實際的效用,這大幅度的改變清楚確立了反洗錢制度的效力。在這段期間內,FATF全球合作已擴展至9個與其相同型態的區域性組織 (FSRB),涵蓋範圍超過190個國家。McDonell先生負責管理及監督新的第四回合相互評鑑計劃,並帶領執行首次以新方法進行評鑑的國家:西班牙。

在進入FATF之前,McDonell 先生曾任職於聯合國毒品與犯罪問題辦公室(UNODC),擔任聯合國全球洗錢防制計劃(UN Global Programme on Money Laundering)主席。此外,他也創辦了於1998年成立的亞太區反洗錢工作組 (APG),並出任首任執行秘書。他於 1995年至1997年間,擔任FATF亞洲秘書處(FATF Asia Secretariat)首長,此機構是APG的前身。
