The last Compliance Jobs Report for July has promotions at HSBC, Nissan Motor Corp., and Penn Mutual; new hires at Anheuser-Busch, Harvard University, and a few healthcare systems; and a trio of compliance job opportunities in life science or tech firms. Plus, as always, our Meme of the Week!
As always, thank you to all the compliance people sending me tips and links to keep this report going. We need your help to make the Report work, so send me some news! If you have a tip to pass along, email me at [email protected] or find me on LinkedIn.
Compliance Jobs News
We begin with British banking giant HSBC, which just promoted Christine Lowthian to be chief compliance officer of the bank’s U.S. operations. Lowthian has been with HSBC in various roles since 1994, and had been interim chief compliance officer for U.S. operations since April. She will report to Colin Bell, the bank’s group chief compliance officer.
Anheuser-Busch has hired Kimberly Pack as associate general counsel for compliance. Pack previously worked at Prudential Financial for six years as compliance director, but spent the last 18 months on sabbatical. We will pause for a moment of envy, then crack open a Bud Light to celebrate her new gig.
Promoted: Bruce Scoggins, at Nissan Motor Corp., from senior manager of compliance to global director of compliance investigations. Scoggins has been with Nissan in various accounting and compliance roles for more than 15 years. No jokes about executives smuggling themselves off premises in musical instrument crates, please.
Also promoted: Ati Bailey, at Penn Mutual Life Insurance, from assistant vice president of internal audit to chief audit executive. Bailey has been working his way up the internal audit function at Penn Mutual since 2012.
Eventus Whole Health, a healthcare practice based in Charlotte, N.C., has hired Donna Rooney as chief risk and compliance officer. Rooney comes to Eventus from Florida Autism Centers, where she had been chief compliance officer and corporate counsel.
Over at Boyd Gaming (based in Las Vegas, naturally), Peter Sand has switched roles from manager of privacy compliance to corporate records manager. Sand joined Boyd Gaming last year; he previously worked in privacy compliance at Indiana University and Amazon Lab126 (the part of Amazon that makes Kindles).
Ryan Whitehill has joined Integris Health, the largest healthcare system in Oklahoma, as compliance program director. Whitehill comes to Integris after a long tour of duty at Tenet Healthcare, where his final role was director of compliance culture and training.
In San Diego, Julie Glasgow has joined ECG Management Consultants as vice president and compliance manager. Glasgow previously spent the last four years at Accumen Inc. as compliance director.
Paul Liebman, long-time compliance professional around town in Austin, Texas, is relocating to Boston to join the research compliance team at Harvard University. Leibman has previously been compliance officer at Baylor University and University of Texas at Austin, and compliance counsel at Dell.
Remember Michele Robinson, previously regional ethics and compliance manager for Walmart in the San Francisco area? She just turned up at the East Bay Regional Parks District as senior analyst for professional standards. Robinson quips that she is going “from the nation’s largest retailer to the nation’s largest regional park system!”
Rebecca Goldberg has joined AdventHealth, a healthcare system in Southern Florida, as regional corporate responsibility officer. Goldberg previously worked at Aurora Diagnostics, a subsidiary of Sonic Healthcare USA, as chief compliance officer.
And we have three compliance or audit professionals joining corporate boards this week.
Dangote Cement, a Nigerian firm that is the largest cement manufacturer in Africa, has named Berlina Moroole to its board. Moroole has previously been chief risk officer for Liberty Group South Africa and chief audit executive at Motus Corp.; she also serves on the board of Assupol Holdings in South Africa.
U.S. Steel has named Tracy Atkinson to its board. Atkinson had been chief compliance officer at State Street Corp. until she retired from that job in March. She had also served on Raytheon’s board of directors.
And Chad Fentress, chief compliance officer for Softbank Group, now bravely says on his LinkedIn profile that he joined the board of directors for WeWork back in March. Softbank is an investor in WeWork, which canceled its planned IPO late last year. WeWork has been in some pretty messy fights over its corporate governance, so we wish Fentress well in this journey.
Vendors & Service Providers
Niresh Rajah has joined Grant Thornton’s London offices as a senior adviser in regulatory advisory and assurance. He previously had been head of regulatory change at Barclays UK.
Open Req Orders
Moderna, the Boston-area biotech racing ahead with a vaccine for Covid-19, is looking for a manager of internal controls and SOX compliance. New role, based in suburban Boston rather than the hip R&D offices in Cambridge.
Cardinal Innovations, apparently an innovative subsidiary of Cardinal Health, is recruiting a senior compliance and privacy specialist. Job is based in Charlotte, N.C.
Fintech firm Square is looking for a chief compliance officer for Cash App, one of the fintech brands that Square owns. Job can be based in Portland, Oreg., or Oakland, Calif.
