Integrity Initiative

Mark Pyman is described as Senior Fellow and member of the Governance and Integrity Group, and an internationally recognised anti-corruption specialist. He founded Transparency International's global defence, police and security anti-corruption programme in 2004, and led the programme until 2015. He led TI‟s defence and security work in over thirty countries, including Afghanistan, Colombia, Lebanon, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Croatia and Latvia. He then was appointed as one of the three international anti-corruption Commissioners in Afghanistan‟s national Anti-Corruption Committee, and as Chair, 2015-2017. He is the author or sponsor of some seventy publications on tackling corruption. Prior to his Transparency International role, he spent nearly two decades as Shell International's Chief Financial Officer in Gabon (West Africa), China, Korea and Hong Kong and elsewhere: in these roles he had the overall responsibility for corruption prevention and investigations.

The website's own presentation states: "CurbingCorruption was founded in 2018 by Mark Pyman. From his experience of working in three of the toughest environments for corruption – as the Programme Director for Transparency International in tackling corruption in the military and Defence Ministries worldwide; in Afghanistan, as one of the three international Anti-Corruption Commissioners; and as the Chief financial Officer for large international companies in endemically corrupt countries – he came to believe that much more progress against corruption is possible."[2]
