Compliance Jobs Report: June 30

Another busy Compliance Jobs Report this week! New compliance and risk officers at Humana, Bank of the West, and Funding Circle; promotions at Tata Motors, Teva Pharmaceuticals, and Standard Chartered; and lots of other move around the industry.

This week’s jobs report was delayed one day to make room for our outstanding interview with Hui Chen, posted yesterday. We’ll be back on the Friday schedule next week.

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!
