Martin Wilczynski is an Affiliate at Ankura based in Washington, DC. Martin has 35 years of professional experience in accounting, internal, and forensic investigations. In addition to his nearly 20 years of consulting experience, Martin’s background includes 10 years of auditing experience at an international accounting firm and six years on the staff of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, where he served for five years within the enforcement division.


At Ankura, Martin collaborates with his team to provide a range of investigation, forensic accounting, technical advisory, and regulatory services to clients.

Prior to joining Ankura, Martin served as the leader of the forensic accounting practice at FTI Consulting. In addition, Martin was a shareholder at Ten Eyck Associates, a boutique forensic accounting and SEC enforcement consulting firm. Since leaving the SEC in 1998, Martin has focused his consulting practice on SEC enforcement proceedings, internal and forensic investigations, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anticorruption reviews, litigation support, financial reporting, and revenue recognition issues. He has worked with outside counsel in representing boards and special committees in a number of complex, fact-finding accounting investigations involving financial restatements, whistleblower allegations, and SEC enforcement and reporting issues.

Martin frequently assists counsel in translating and communicating the results of those investigations to the SEC staff and other regulators.

Among other high-profile engagements, while at FTI, Martin served for more than seven years as co-leader of the consulting team providing investigative and litigation support to the trustee and his counsel on the landmark Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities SIPA liquidation.

While he was at the SEC, Martin was responsible for numerous financial and accounting investigations, including the critical evaluation of investigatory evidence used in making recommendations to the commission. In addition, he has expertise with respect to actions brought against accounting and auditing professionals pursuant to Rule 102(e) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice. In 1997, Martin was awarded the SEC’s Sydney C. Orbach Award in recognition of significant accounting contributions to the commission’s full disclosure program and to the protection of investors.
