First, we sympathize with everyone suffering job loss and economic privation these days, as this week’s unemployment numbers demonstrate so painfully. That said, the Compliance Jobs Report endures. We have several new hires and promotions to note; the perfect job opening for someone who wants to get away from it all; and our Meme of the Week goes out to Toby Keith fans.
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. We need your help to make the Report work, so send me some news! Read on…

Cytiva, now a subsidiary of Danaher and previously known as GE Life Sciences before Danaher scooped up the business, has named Marcos Sanz global compliance leader.

Anyway, Sanz is in France and running the compliance show now.
