In this week’s Compliance Jobs Report we have a few new appointments at the SEC, a few ousters at FIFA, plus compliance officer appointments at USAA, Demantic, Ingram Micro, and Sanofi—and a dream compliance job for anyone who likes watching the ponies.
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
William Hinman is the Securities & Exchange Commission’s new director for its Division for Corporation Finance, and the first major hire by new SEC chairman Jay Clayton. Hinman recently retired as a partner at the Silicon Valley office of law firm Simpson Thatcher. If Clayton was looking for a CorpFin director to help him smooth the way for more small companies to have IPOs, he certainly found one in Hinman.
The SEC also announced Lucas Moskowitz as its new chief of staff. Moskowitz comes to the agency from the Senate Banking Committee, where he was chief investigative counsel. Once upon a time he was also counsel to ex-Commissioner Dan Gallagher—who, by the way, recently took a job as chief legal officer for Mylan Labs.
Russ Berland, one of the nicest compliance professionals in the Midwest, just turned up as chief compliance officer at Demantic, a supply-chain management that is a subsidiary of the German firm KION Group. Berland will oversee global compliance for Demantic, and Americas compliance for KION.
Susan Neilsen Hammond has a new job as senior litigation counsel at USAA, the financial services firm that works with U.S. military families. Hammond had previously been senior counsel at the Redstone Initiative, and held several jobs at Regions Bank before that.
In Mumbai, Sindhu Kavinamannil has been named compliance officer for India at Ingram Micro. Kavinamannil comes to Ingram Micro after several years as a compliance consultant at various firms.
Sanofi has re-assigned Thanh Dong Hoang in Vietnam, moving him from head of internal control and process for Indochina commercial operations to regional internal control and process manager for Southeast Asia industrial operations. Hoang has been with Sanofi since 2014.
The International Accounting Standards Board has named Jianqiao Lu as a board member. Lu comes to IASB from China’s Ministry of Finance, where he was director of the Accounting Regulatory Department. He oversaw China’s move to converge its accounting rules with International Financial Reporting Standards.
FIFA, the governing body for world soccer that is up to its eyeballs in corruption allegations, just sacked its two ethics leaders: Hans-Joachim Eckert and Cornel Burbly. No word from FIFA yet on why that happened, but it does not look good. This is also odd because Edward Hanover, FIFA’s new chief compliance officer, has been staffing up lately.
And you may have heard, FBI director James Comey got fired. He never did accept my connection request on LinkedIn.
