Biography

Robert Mazur has earned global acclaim as one of the world’s leading experts about the financial escapades of the underworld. There is no one with more first-hand knowledge about how the underworld launders nearly $2 trillion in criminal proceeds annually. For years, in the eyes of organized crime leaders, he was a sophisticated mob connected money launderer that helped manage their illicit fortunes. His clients, some of the most famous and deadly drug cartel bosses, offered a $1/2 million price tag for his head when arrests were made around the world and he was revealed to be a highly-trained U.S. federal undercover agent.

Robert is the New York Times bestselling author of The Infiltrator, a memoir about the first half of his undercover life, acting as a conduit between Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Drug Cartel and corrupt senior international bank executives that cleaned billions in blood-stained money. Escobar and those dirty bankers taught Mazur more about real-life money laundering than governments will ever know.

Robert has transformed his underworld experience and current day involvement in the financial crime field into remarkable lessons for today’s business sector. His presentations, all of which are uniquely designed for each client, have received tremendous acclaim from an extraordinarily wide range of the business sector.

Mr. Mazur shares unique insights with organizations around the globe about establishing sound anti-money laundering policies & procedures, how to mitigate financial crime risk, security protocols, identifying current day money laundering threats, understanding the inner workings of organized crime, and team building. He also shares secrets with senior executives about how to establish rapport and enhance communication in their business and personal lives, secrets he learned while being trained in long-term undercover techniques that enabled him to successfully engage with some of the world’s most notorious organized crime figures. For Mr. Mazur, those techniques meant the difference between life and death. For senior executives, these back- channel insights can be the difference between achieving maximum success, or failing.

In the Spring of 2022, Robert’s second book, The Betrayal, was released in North America and Europe. It chronicles a second 2-year undercover assignment he carried out after the events in his earlier book, The Infiltrator. His new book, which is also being developed as a motion picture that will star Bryan Cranston, focuses not only on his infiltration of money launderers, corrupt bankers, and drug kingpins in Colombia’s Cali Cartel, but also addresses his near death at the hands of a law enforcement colleague, a mole within DEA for the underworld, who secretly compromised his undercover identity.

After completing a highly decorated 27-year career as a federal agent in 3 U.S. agencies, Robert is now the President of KYC Solutions, Inc., a firm that provides speaking, expert witness, and consulting services to companies worldwide.

Mr. Mazur is certified in both U.S. and Canadian courts as an expert in money laundering. His articles have been published by many major media outlets, including the NY Times. He is a contributor to money laundering related programming that has aired on PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Univision, BBC, and other major networks. He has been a guest on more than 1,500 radio and television shows during the past several years.

Mr. Mazur’s book, The Infiltrator, is available in 10 languages and in more than 50 countries. It was the basis for the internationally released major motion picture by the same name, starring Bryan Cranston, Diane Kruger, and other globally known cast members. The Betrayal book has been distributed in North America and Europe in several languages, and the film adaptation of The Betrayal will star some of the same primary cast members that appeared in The Infiltrator film.
