“She will focus on continuing to offer customers market-leading solutions which will help them in the fight against fraud and ensure that public funds go to the rightful recipients,” the company told Industry Insider — California.

A veteran of law enforcement and technology has been promoted to a key leadership role by Thomson Reuters.

Amanda D’Amico has been named vice president of risk and fraud strategy and operations by the company, and in that role, she is responsible for setting the Thomson Reuters risk and fraud strategic direction.

D’Amico “has been fighting fraud on the front lines for over 20 years,” the company told Industry Insider — California. “She started her career in law enforcement, achieving the rank of lieutenant, and then transitioned to be a state public benefits integrity director. For the last five years, she has been leading the fraud prevention operations at Pondera-Thomson Reuters.”

D’Amico explained her new role: “Through our program integrity and fraud investigation solutions, we aid our customers across 28 states in protecting public funds from fraud, waste and abuse in social assistance programs such as UI, SNAP, Medicare and Medicaid by quickly prioritizing claim backlogs, ensuring the payments go to those who need it and stopping future payments from being sent to fraudsters.”

“Ms. D’Amico is committed to championing innovation and taking a solutions-based approach to help meet customer needs,” the company said. “She will focus on continuing to offer customers market leading solutions which will help them in the fight against fraud and ensure that public funds go to the rightful recipients.”

The president of Thomson Reuters’ government segment, Steve Rubley, said via email: “Through our Thomson Reuters Fraud and Risk Solutions, we help states put in place a preventative model to tackle fraud and stop it the front end, saving governments billions of dollars. As vice president, risk and fraud strategy and operations, Amanda D’Amico will spearhead this critical work, helping communities across the country. With her personal experience in the field, as well as her in-depth operational expertise, I’m confident that Amanda will oversee the delivery of outstanding results for our customers and their constituents.”

D’Amico held a series of increasingly responsible roles with Folsom-based Pondera Solutions before it was acquired by Thomson Reuters in March 2020. Since then, she’s moved up the ladder with Thomson Reuters, beginning as a senior director before being elevated to vice president — first as VP for operations and analytics, and then to her current role as VP for risk and fraud strategy and operations.

The Sacramento-area resident earned her law enforcement certification from Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy. She received her bachelor degree (cum laude) in criminology from Florida State University, where she also earned her Master of Science degree in criminology (magna cum laude). She is also an alumna of Harvard University’s Executive Education program.

She also holds credentials from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a law enforcement officer and as an instructor in law enforcement general subjects and in firearms. D’Amico is also a member of Mensa.
