Compliance Jobs Report: Aug. 18

The Compliance Jobs Report this week has lots of compliance officer promotions: Eastern Bank, Kansas City Power & Light, General Motors, Nu Skin Enterprises, and more. We also have a few compliance officers setting up shop as independent consultants, and a compliance job opening at Waste Management that needs to be filled.

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!
