Compliance Jobs Report: Aug. 16

This week the Compliance Jobs Report starts with Carnival Cruise Lines strengthening its compliance team, plus new hires at Natixis, Penn State, DTI Holdings, and elsewhere. We have a few promotions, job openings in pharma and health insurance, and our Meme of the Week goes out to all devotees of third-party risk management. 

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! Read on… 

Compliance Jobs News

Carnival Cruise Lines continues to beef up its compliance operations. The company just promoted Chris Donald, corporate compliance manager, to senior vice president for environmental compliance. (Environmental failures were what landed Carnival in hot water with the feds.) Donald will report to Peter Anderson, Carnival’s new chief compliance officer. You may have seen reports about Anderson’s appointment this week, but of course Radical Compliance had that news last month

Promoted: Matt Abbott, at Chemours Co. in Wilmington, Del., from chief audit executive to chief accounting officer. Abbott has been with Chemours, a chemicals company, since 2017.

In New York, Suprio Chaudhuri has joined Naxitis CIB as deputy chief compliance officer for the Americas. Chaudhuri previously was chief compliance officer for ABN Amro Securities for two years. 

Here’s quite a move: Matthew Frank has departed Las Vegas Sands Corp., where he had been global chief compliance officer, to be chief legal and compliance officer at DTI Holdings — a nanotechnology firm in Irvine, Calif. Prior to his stint at Las Vegas Sands, Frank had also been a compliance officer at Johnson Controls. 

Penn State has named Jennifer Santiago its new assistant vice president of risk management, effective Sept. 12. Santiago, formerly director of risk management at Novartis Pharmaceuticals, takes over for Gary Langsdale, who will retire in December.

A few weeks ago we noted that Trisha Burnett was leaving her job as chief audit executive for the University of Oregon, to move closer to family in North Carolina. Well, Burnett was just named internal auditor for Buncombe County in Asheville, N.C. Good for her.

Amanda Ortega has joined Prime Trust, a fintech firm in Nevada, as chief of regulatory affairs and compliance. Ortega had previously been deputy banking commissioner for the state of Wyoming. Which is next to Nevada.

Joanie Dillett has joined Axiom as senior counsel for data privacy and security. Dillett comes to Axiom from Talend, where she had been senior legal director for privacy, compliance, and employment.

And in London, Desiree Djete has been named compliance officer at Dzing Finance, which wins this week’s contest for coolest business name. Djete comes to Dzing from XCH4NGE, which wins the contest for worst business name, where she had been head of compliance since last summer.
