Compliance Jobs Report: April 21

This week’s Compliance Jobs Report kicks off with a new chief compliance officer at Lincoln Financial (yay) who reports to the general counsel (aww…). We also have news from Conifer Health, Uber, and BNP Paribas; plus a slew of work anniversaries and a kooky announcement from SAI Global. Read on.

I gather these bits of gossip from LinkedIn, news alerts, and friends emailing me something to include. If you have a tip to pass along, email me at [email protected] or find me on LinkedIn. This report depends on people like you helping me, so send some news!

Compliance Jobs News

Lincoln Financial, a financial firm with $229 billion in assets under management, has named Steve Harris chief compliance officer. Harris previously was chief compliance officer at The Hartford Group. Harris will report to general counsel Kirkland Hicks—not quite best practice for CCO reporting structure, but we wish Harris well nonetheless.

Conifer Health, a Texas company that helps healthcare businesses manage their IT systems, has named Dan Feldman chief compliance officer. Feldman comes to Conifer from Dean Foods, where he was chief compliance officer. At Conifer, Feldman will oversee ethics and corporate compliance, as well as privacy compliance.

Vendors & Service Providers

Customer win: Workiva has picked up Brown-Forman Cos., the maker of Jack Daniels, Canadian Mist, and other liquor brands, as a customer for Workiva’s enterprise risk management software. No word on the form of payment Brown-Forman provided, but one can hope.

The Impellam Group, a staffing firm in Britain, has chosen Ideagen Pentana to modernize the audit and risk management processes for its legal and IT departments.

Down in Buenos Aires, Erica Silvana Pedruzzi has been named director at Governance Latam, a compliance consulting firm working in Argentina.

And in one of the wackier marketing stunts I’ve seen, SAI Global has released “The Compliance Coloring Book for anyone who wants to express your office angst by breaking out the Crayola. Yes, it’s a gimmick to capture compliance officers’ email addresses—a damned good one.

Open Req Orders

The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas (my preferred casino on the Strip now that the Sahara classed itself up) is looking for a senior internal auditor.

Deloitte is looking for a senior analyst for its anti-corruption compliance group. The job is in Arlington, Va., and of course thriving at a Big 4 firm requires a certain something.

That’s all we have this week. If you have a tip or want to brag about your new job, promotion, career milestone, or anything else, just email me at [email protected] or find me on LinkedIn. I’m always happy to give credit to the many hard-working people here in our corner of the business universe.
