This week we have a new senior compliance executive at Hewlett-Packard, promotions at JP Morgan, Chubb, and GSK; a new head of internal audit at Black Line; and two compliance jobs in the financial world—plus a fair bit of other personnel news and industry gossip.
I gather these bits of information 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
Stephen Shelton has taken a job with Hewlett-Packard as senior director of internal audit for global functions and compliance. Shelton had been doing some independent consulting work for a while, and previously was chief audit executive at KBR.
Mark Egert, chief compliance officer of JP Morgan Investment Management and head of compliance for the North America region of JP Morgan Asset Management, has also been promoted to managing director at the bank.
The insurance giant Chubb has named Kyle Bryant regional manager of cyber-risk for Europe. He previously headed up cyber-risk for Chubb in continental Europe. Bryant will be based in London.
Out in Los Angeles, Stephen Arietta has a new job: vice president of internal audit for BlackLine, a maker of financial software. Arietta previously spent a few years heading up internal audit at the TechStyle Fashion Group.
Logiq Asset Management, based in Toronto and with $4.8 billion in assets under management, has named Tim Fitzpatrick chief compliance officer. He replaces Terrence Lui, who has been promoted to general counsel. Fitzpatrick comes to Logiq from Goodman & Co., where he was chief compliance officer.
Keith Gandy has been promoted at GSK, to assistant general counsel for corporate legal functions and corporate compliance. He previously had been ethics & compliance director for programs and alliances at the pharmaceutical giant. Gandy is based in London.
Nic Shelver has been named head of corporate governance and compliance at AlphaPharm in South Africa. He comes to AlphaPharm from Novartis, where he was head of compliance for Africa.
In Andorra (that tiny, mountainous country between France and Spain), Uriel Gonzalez has left his job as head of internal control for the cleverly named Andbank. His LinkedIn profile now says “stand by…” so we await news of his next career move.
In the Netherlands, Peggy Flos has been named controller of Woonpunt, a real estate business. She previously headed up internal control at Obvion, a Dutch financial services firm.
And from the regulatory world, we would be remiss if we didn’t note that Andrew Weissmann, head of the Fraud Section at the Justice Department, is leaving that position to work with Robert Mueller, special counsel investigating allegations of misconduct in the Trump campaign. Sandra Moser will be acting chief of the section until a permanent replacement is named or, theoretically, Weissmann returns.
Sadly, we note the passing of Joe Alhadeff, a pillar of the privacy community and most recently chief privacy strategist at Oracle. Alhadeff died at the end of May after a long battle with cancer. He was 57.
Congratulations to Warren Hersh, new president of the Philadelphia chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors. In his day job, Hersh is general auditor of New Jersey Transit.
And while we’re in the neighborhood, Heather Powell just hit her one-year anniversary as regulatory and compliance attorney for Axiom, also based in Philly.
