This week’s Compliance Jobs Report is another big one: news from Citigroup, UniCredit, New York University, Smucker’s, Philip Morris International, and many more. If you’re looking to drink beer on semi-tropical islands, we have a job lead for you; and our Meme of the Week goes out to everyone sick of election news.
As always, thank you to all the compliance people sending me tips and links to keep this report going. We need your help to make the Report work, so send me some news! If you have a tip to pass along, email me at [email protected] or find me on LinkedIn.
Compliance Jobs News
We begin this week at Citigroup, where chief risk officer Brad Hu is stepping down after seven years in that role. Citi was just fined $400 million by banking regulators for poor risk management practices (among other failures), although the bank says Hu’s decision to leave was his own. Citi will conduct a search for his replacement.
Speaking of big banks, Italian bank UniCredit has promoted Serenella De Candia from head of internal audit to chief compliance officer. De Candia succeeds CCO Carlo Appetiti, whom the bank is seconding to the Italian government for an economic development project. Guglielmo Zadra, UniCredit’s head of group regulatory affairs, will be promoted to succeed De Candia as head of internal audit.
In Argentina, Agostina Greco has joined Glencore Agriculture as regional compliance officer for Latin America. Greco comes to Glencore from Transportadora de Gas del Norte (everything sounds prettier in Spanish), where she had spent two years as compliance officer.
Also in Argentina, Dalma Parisi has an expanded role at Siemens operations there. She previously had been lead compliance officer for South America excluding Brazil, and now is also general counsel for Argentina.
Charlotte-Mecklenberg Schools, the school district for Charlotte, N.C., with more than 147,000 students enrolled, has named Scott McCully the district’s first chief compliance officer. McCully had been chief operating officer of Guilford County Schools in Greensboro, N.C., for the last few years, but from 2000 to 2017 he was CMS’ head of student assignment and planning.
J.M. Smucker Co., maker of jams and other foods that kids smear all over your furniture, has promoted Candice Monroe from senior analyst in compliance training to associate manager of compliance engagement. Monroe has been with Smucker’s in various roles since 2012.
Carl Paratore, chief audit executive for Tufts Health Plan in Boston, has joined the board of the Greater Boston Food Bank. We assume Paratore will serve on the group’s audit committee.
Laura Rogers has joined financial services firm Synovus as senior director of ethics and compliance. Rogers comes to Synovus from Truist (previously known by the much better name SunTrust Bank), where she had been senior vice president of policies and frameworks.
Poached! New York University has hired Aisha Oliver-Staley as general counsel and university secretary, stealing her away from Georgia Tech, where Oliver-Staley had been chief ethics and compliance officer since 2019 (and working there in other roles since 2011). No word yet on what Georgia Tech might do to fill Oliver-Staley’s post.
Spring Oak Capital, a fund that buys and collects on consumer debt — and breathlessly promises “an innovative, refreshing and equitable vision that provides positive optionality around consumer debt obligations” — has hired Catherine Calko as chief compliance officer. She comes to Spring Oak from Wells Fargo, where she spent the last 18 months as a business risk and controls manager.
Shelby Cannon has left her job at CNA Insurance as assistant vice president of IT risk and compliance, to take a gig at Abbott as director of global data protection. Based in Chicago.
Blue Foundry Bank, a community bank based in New Jersey, has hired Brent Ciurlino as chief risk officer and Richard Smith as vice president of security and fraud. Ciurlino previously worked at Newtek Business Services Corp. as senior vice president of risk and operations; Smith worked at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management as vice president of fraud operations.
Carolina Moncalier has joined Philip Morris International as head of ethics and compliance for Central and Latin America, working from Costa Rica. She comes to PMI from Unilever, where she had been Latin America compliance officer for nearly two years.
In Turkey, Borsa İstanbul (that is, the Istanbul stock exchange) has moved Mustafa Ozbay from chief auditor to compliance manager. Ozbay has been with the exchange since 2014, and had been senior compliance officer from 2014 to 2016.

DH Diagnostics, a subsidiary of manufacturing giant Danaher, has hired Vinca Russell as senior manager for compliance, communications, and training. Russell comes to DH after several months at Trane Technologies where she held a similar role; and prior to that stint had been at Ingersoll Rand as a senior manager in compliance training.
Southwestern Health Resources, part of UT Southwestern and Texas Health Resources, has named Wendy Carver chief compliance officer. Carver previously worked at PacificSource Health Plans for four years as chief compliance and privacy officer.
And in Toronto, Scotiabank has promoted Nicole Frew from senior vice president of AML and internal control to chief compliance officer. Frew has been with Scotiabank since 2017. Incidentally, Frew just won an award from a Canadian business journal for excellent leadership during the pandemic.
Vendors & Service Providers
CODY, a technology consulting firm that helps healthcare systems with their regulatory compliance burdens, has named Julie Hughes chief compliance officer — a role that actually means Hughes will help to lead product development and client services. Hughes previously was Medicare compliance officer for Sunrise Advantage Plan in Virginia.
Open Req Orders
Compañía Cervecera de Canarias, a beer company in the Canary Islands that is “one of the main engines of economic and social development in the Canary Islands,” is looking for a legal and compliance manager. The Canary Islands are off the coast of Spain, lovely, and I’ve been there — yes, beer consumption is a big part of life!
