Robert Mazur

Former Federal Agent, Special Investigator of Money Laundering

Robert Mazur is the President of Chase & Associates, an agency that provides enhanced due diligence and other services to law firms, banks, broker dealers, and corporations throughout the U.S. and many foreign countries. He’s a former federal agent that specialized in international money laundering investigations. For five years, he was a long-term undercover operative working in 8 countries, including Colombia. In an undercover capacity, he became a conduit between corrupt bankers and drug cartels that taught him money laundering techniques previously unknown to the government. His undercover exploits are the subject of his book, The Infiltrator.

Mazur spent five years undercover infiltrating the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels. The dirty bankers and businessmen he befriended—some of whom still shape power across the globe—knew him as Bob Musella, a wealthy, mob-connected big shot living the good life. Together they partied in $1,000-per-night hotel suites, drank bottles of the world’s finest champagne, drove Rolls-Royce convertibles and flew in private jets. But under Mazur’s Armani suits and in his Renwick briefcase, recorders whirred quietly, capturing the damning evidence of their crimes. Then, at a staged wedding, he led a dramatic takedown that shook the underworld. In the end, more than eighty men and women were charged worldwide. Operation C-Chase became one of the most successful undercover operations in the history of U.S. law enforcement, and evidence gathered during the bust proved critical to the conviction of General Manuel Noriega.

Mazur now brings the story of The Infiltrator to the stage and shares with audiences how he helped bring down the unscrupulous bankers who manipulated complex international finance systems to serve drug lords—including Pablo Escobar—corrupt politicians, tax cheats, and terrorists. It is, at its broadest, a shocking chronicle of the rise and fall of perhaps the biggest and most intricate money-laundering operation of all time—an enterprise that cleaned and moved hundreds of millions of dollars a year. At its heart, it’s a stunning and vivid portrait of an undercover life—and the sacrifices it required.

Filled with dangerous lies, near misses, and harrowing escapes, Mazur’s life has been as bracing and explosive as the greatest fiction thrillers—only it’s all true.

At the podium Mazur explains how there’s no difference between wanting to be the very best undercover agent in the world and wanting to be the very best corporate executive in the world. It takes desire, preparation, focus, planning and commitment. Mazur approached his attack on the underworld in the same manner that a corporate executive plans their attack on the market they hope to serve. It requires a singular commitment that puts all other aspects of one’s life at great risk, but that risk is necessary for reward. He has spoken to corporations such as Deloitte and Raymond James Financial Service.

Mazur also routinely speaks before professional organizations and associations that address issues relative to anti-money laundering compliance: associations of bankers, lawyers, broker dealers, money service businesses, investigators and law enforcement groups that have an interest in understanding the nuances of how the underworld can affect their missions. He also addresses university students interested in criminal justice, law, and forensic accounting.

Mazur’s company is based in Tampa, FL.
