Sabina Menschel is President & Chief Operating Officer of Nardello & Co., and is based in the firm’s Washington, DC office. A graduate of Harvard College and the Harvard Business School, Sabina has over 18 years of experience leading domestic and international due diligence, litigation support, fraud, and global asset recovery investigations on behalf of financial institutions, law firms, and multinationals.
Prior to joining Nardello & Co., Sabina was a Managing Director at an international risk consultancy in New York and then in Washington, DC. She joined that firm at its inception and helped establish its investigative practice. She also played an active role in client engagements, including leading a billion dollar asset recovery investigation of a family-controlled company for a US multinational. That investigation spanned Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the US and identified numerous businesses and substantial assets. Sabina has led numerous other asset searches against foreign sovereigns, global and domestic corporations, and high-net-worth individuals.
Sabina’s other engagements included managing a due diligence in Asia and the US for an international financial institution seeking to obtain its banking license in the US. For a domestic hedge fund, Sabina helped establish “best practices” for pre-employment investigations of prospective employees and due diligence investigations on trading platform partners.
Sabina began her investigative career as a research analyst at Kroll, rose to Director of Research for the New York office, and then to Global Head of Training for the Business Intelligence and Investigations practice.
After graduating from Harvard Business School, Sabina served as a Special Advisor in the Directorate of Intelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s headquarters in Washington, DC. In that capacity, she worked with senior management to refine and strengthen the FBI’s intelligence gathering capabilities and implement its intelligence transformation efforts in response to the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.
