Big news in the Compliance Jobs Report this week: Ed Hanover has stepped down as head of compliance at FIFA. We also have two compliance hires in the world of higher ed, plus news from Nissan, J.R. Simplot, Wellington Management, and more.

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


Big news in soccer: Ed Hanover is leaving his job as chief compliance officer at FIFA, to become a partner at DLA Piper starting Sept. 3. Hanover had been at FIFA for three years helping the scandal-plagued sporting organization as much as he could. Apparently he and his wife want to return to the United States, and to do it in time for start of the school year. 

Congratulations to Aisha Oliver-Staley, who has been promoted to chief ethics and compliance officer at Georgia Tech. (That’s in Georgia.) Oliver-Staley had been director of affiliated organizations at Georgia Tech since 2011, and pulled a stint as interim VP of ethics and compliance earlier this year until the school hired Ling-Ling Nie as general counsel and VP of ethics and compliance earlier this year. Nie says stay tuned, as Georgia Tech will keep building up its ethics and compliance function this year!

One state over, the University of Mississippi just hired Mandy King as director of research integrity and compliance. King comes to Ole Miss from Southern Illinois University, where she was the university’s research compliance manager. Go Black Bears!

[Editor’s note: A compliance officer down south has diplomatically noted that Alabama is between Georgia and Mississippi. We thank him for the correction, and will leave the original above to acknowledge our error.]

Compliance jobsCarmen  Wasserman just took a job as chief compliance officer at Evofem Biosciences in  Irvine, Calif.. She’d previously worked across town as CCO at Aerie Pharmaceuticals for nearly four years. (Aerie began recruiting a replacement last week.) One hopes Wasserman will now sign up for the Radical Compliance newsletter from her new email address.

Neal Treanor has joined Wellington Management in Boston as assistant vice president for compliance. Treanor comes to Wellington from State Street Corp., where he had been a sales & marketing supervisor for State Street’s ETFs. 

In Argentina, J.R. Simplot Co. has named Virginia Frangella regional compliance officer for Latin America. Frangella previously worked as special counsel at Beccar Varela, a law firm in Buenos Aires. Some of you might remember Frangella from work in London earlier this decade as a compliance officer at Kimberly-Clark and Diageo

In Japan, Salvador Dahan has been promoted to general manager of global risk and compliance at Nissan. Dahan joined Nissan in 2017 and most recently had been director of governance, risk, compliance, and audit for Latin America. 

And in Cyprus, Scope Markets has poached Eliza Eliadou to be chief compliance officer. Eliadou had been CCO at London Capital Group since 2017.


We are sad to report the passing of Giovanni Buttarelli, the top privacy regulator in Europe, who died this week at age 62. Buttarelli had worked in data privacy for more than 20 years and was instrumental in creating the EU General Data Protection Directive. He had been head of the European Data Privacy Supervisor since 2014

Linde Murphy, chief compliance officer of M.E. Allison & Co., has been elected to the board of FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. Murphy will hold one of three seats on the board reserves for small broker-dealer firms. Her term is three years.

The Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics has announced that Lockheed Martin Corp. and the International Chamber of Commerce will win SCCE’s International Ethics and Compliance Award for 2019. Lockheed gets an award for its “imaginative and innovative” ethics training; the ICC for its work promoting business integrity worldwide. Both will receive their awards at the SCCE 2019 conference in Washington, D.C., next month. 

Vendors and Service Providers

Yoon & Yang, a prominent corporate law firm in South Korea, has hired Edward Dhong as a partner in its compliance and investigations practice. Dhong had spent nearly 15 years at IBM in various investigations roles, most recently as head of investigations for China, Japan, and other APAC countries. 

Christine Hanz, a long-time SOX compliance professional in Atlanta, has joined Rausch Advisory Services, still keepin’ it real doing SOX compliance engagements. 

Open Req Orders

Snapchat (I refuse to call it Snap Inc.) is looking for a director of ethics and compliance. Job is based in Los Angeles. Now I’m imagining bribery schemes conducted via Snapchat and my head hurts. 

The Registry of Motor Vehicles in Massachusetts is drawing up plans to hire a chief compliance officer and a director of policy. This is in response to a messy political scandal that previous Registry leaders did a terrible job revoking licenses for drivers with out-of-state driving infractions. As an occasional customer of the Registry, I can attest that candidates should have the patience of Job to work there. 

AtriCure is looking for a director of healthcare compliance. Job is in suburban Cincinnati.
