NEACH Announces Rayleen Pirnie, AAP, CERP, as Director of Risk and Fraud


Burlington, MA, October 19, 2020 – The New England Automated Clearing House (NEACH) today announced that Rayleen Pirnie, AAP, CERP, has joined the company as the Director of Risk and Fraud.

Rayleen will oversee risk and fraud mitigation, helping NEACH members identify the risks of daily activities, lessen threats, and balance transactions with compliance obligations. She is an Accredited ACH Professional (AAP) and a Certified Enterprise Risk Professional (CERP) who has worked with all payment systems for more than 20 years.

“Rayleen is a skilled and nationally recognized expert in risk and fraud prevention. She especially excels at areas payment rules don’t necessarily cover, where there’s little guidance for organizations who may find themselves in positions of liability or loss,” said Sean Carter, President of NEACH. “We are thrilled to have her on board.”

Rayleen’s educational programs provide real-world, actionable information for financial institutions and businesses on topics ranging from payments risk management to information security. She authors payments risk and fraud blogs geared toward helping organizations recognize threats and protect themselves from loss.

“I’m passionate about the integrity of payments, compliance, and information security, and am excited to work with NEACH, a company that offers a broad spectrum of knowledge to help their members using both formal education efforts and one-on-one conversations,” said Rayleen.

Always interested in risk management and fraud investigations, Rayleen has been a part of many notable organizations over the years. She was a member of the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators (1998-2016), supporting their education committee for over 10 years. She has also presented to organizations including NEACH, Nacha, the American Bankers Association, and the Risk Management Association. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration.


The New England Automated Clearing House (NEACH) is a non-profit association that helps members originate and receive ACH transactions, and provides products, services, education, and marketing to increase the acceptance, use and quality of electronic transactions. For more information, visit
