Spotlight: Dan Fodor – From college intern to assistant director, special investigations central operations

By Jeff Baker, Program Administrator, BWC Special Investigations Department

fodor-picMembers of the Special Investigations Department (SID) congratulate Dan Fodor. In June 2016, Dan (shown presenting at the 2016 SID in-service meeting on Sept. 14) was promoted to assistant director, central operations.

Assistant director (AD) Fodor started his career with BWC in June 1991 as a college intern with the internal audit department. During this time, Dan completed his degree and became a certified public accountant. He earned a bachelor’s in accounting from The Ohio State University. In December 1991, Dan commenced his initial full-time position with BWC as a  financial/operational auditor and consultant. By the autumn of 1996, he had earned the title of audit senior and commenced his stellar management career.

sid-text-3In November 1999, Dan joined SID as the special agent in charge of the intelligence unit (IU), providing essential support to special investigations unit field agents through fraud detection and data analysis. Given his knowledge, skills and successes with IU, Dan accepted, in June 2014, the additional responsibility of supervising the safety violations investigation unit (SVIU), a team devoted to investigating alleged safety requirement violations that have resulted in a workplace injury, illness or death.

Throughout his career, applying uncanny intuition, uncommon sense and diligence, AD Fodor has energetically prompted our agency’s success and earned the respect of his SID colleagues.

A few examples from his 25-year career, include:

  • Guided and directed the department’s effective use of the agency’s data warehouse;
  • Developed and executed SID performance measurements and management reporting;
  • Effectively partnered with other BWC operational areas and external entities;
  • Co-administered the SID strategic planning process for several five-year plans;
  • Since 2000, IU has detected 18,950 fraud allegations, resulting in the identification of $473 million in savings; and
  • Between 2000 and June 30, 2016, IU’s fraud allegations resulted in 948 criminal referrals and 480 convictions.

These performance results demonstrate, in part, why Dan is highly qualified to direct our SID central operations. Certainly, for all of the above reasons, you can see why we thank and congratulate AD Fodor! We look forward to his continued guidance, direction, leadership and success in our department.
