Compliance Jobs News

We have a few moves at Swedbank, dogged lately by allegations of pervasive failures in its anti-money laundering program. Ingrid Harbo has been re-assigned from chief audit executive to chief compliance officer; Harbo had been Swedbank’s audit chief since 2011. Succeeding her as head of internal audit is Anders Erlandsson, who had been an internal audit manager at Swedbank since 2013. Prior to Swedbank, Erlandsson was head of audit and then chief risk officer at Danske Bank — yes, that Danske Bank, outed last year as laundering at least $200 billion for Russians oligarchs from 2007 to 2017.

Compliance jobsSpeaking of banks with issues,  Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp. has hired Andre Burrell as top anti-money laundering officer for Sumitomo’s Americas division. Burrell got the job after federal banking regulators dinged Sumitomo for various AML weaknesses. He previously worked at Microsoft, heading up its cloud computing solutions for financial customers.

Remember Jeanine Jiganti, who was chief compliance officer at DaVita until last year, and has been a solo compliance consultant since then? Jiganti just landed a job at Walmart, where she will be general counsel for its health and wellness operations. It’s a new role at Walmart. Jiganti was CCO at DaVita from 2012 to 2018, and prior to that was chief compliance officer at Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

In London, ITE Group, one of the world’s largest operators of tradeshows and exhibitions, has named Russell Barr group compliance officer. Barr previously worked at Ipsen, where he was senior director of global ethics & compliance.

Dan Walworth has been promoted at HEI Hotels & Resorts to chief compliance officer. He previously was senior vice president for operations at HEI.

Philip Morris International named Thibaut Vanderaa manager of financial processes and controls earlier this year. Vanderaa came to Philip Morris after seven years at Nestle in various risk and control jobs.

RLK Wealth Management, a firm in York, Penn., has promoted Stephanie Etter to chief compliance officer. Etter previously was the firm’s operations manager and has been there since 2016.

Coinbase, one of those cryptocurrency-digital wallet startups, has named Megan Monroe-Coleman chief compliance officer. Monroe-Coleman previously worked at HBUS as chief compliance officer. She’s based in San Francisco.

And in regulator world, the Securities & Exchange Commission has tapped Adam Aderton to be co-head of the Division of Enforcement’s Asset Management Unit (the team that works on misconduct among investment advisers). Aderton has been with the SEC since 2008 and has been assistant director of the AMU since 2013. He succeeds Anthony Kelly, who left the SEC last November.

Vendors and Service Providers

Andrew Maldonado has left his job at Western Digital as director of financial controls to return to the Lyndon Group, where he’s a senior adviser on travel & entertainment spending controls. Maldonado previously pulled a stint at Lyndon in 2016, and worked at DirecTV for years before that.


Mohamad Iskandarani is celebrating  5 years at Kuwait Energy, where he is a corporate audit specialist.

Dana Mocek is celebrating 10 years at Molina Healthcare of Ohio, where she is associate vice president for compliance.

Open Req Orders

CPI Card Group, which apparently makes payment cards, is seeking a director of corporate compliance and ethics. Job is based in Littleton, Colo.

AM General Corp., maker of military and commercial vehicles, is looking for a chief compliance officer. Job is based in Auburn Hills, Mich., and the description warns that “the employee is regularly required to talk or hear.” That last bit rules out some of the bosses I’ve had over the years.

The Parliament of Canada is looking for a chief audit executive, to serve as top auditor for the House of Commons. Job is based in Ottawa. Which is in Canada.
