This week the Compliance Jobs Report has new hires at Augusta University, Bittrex, Fanatics, and several community banks, plus a flock of internal promotions. A compliance vendor just raised a boatload of capital, and we have job openings to note in boxes and banking. And our Meme of the Week!
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
Augusta University in Augusta, Ga., has named Barry Grosse vice president of audit, compliance, ethics, and risk management (and also chief compliance officer, which is the title that really matters). Grosse comes to Augusta from the University of Miami, where he had been chief compliance officer for health affairs since 2017.
Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, has named Carolina Flomenbaum director of healthcare compliance for the Latin America region. Flomenbaum has been with Janssen in various roles since 2012, and until now was a regional healthcare compliance officer for Brazil.
Martin Liska has joined the Bank of Southern California, a community bank in San Diego, as its first-ever chief risk officer. Liska previously worked at Preferred Bank in Los Angeles as chief risk officer; I guess he preferred to make a move.
Also in community banking: Bell Bank in Minneapolis has hired Jesse Schwab as chief risk officer. Schwab comes to Bell Bank from TCF Bank, where he served as chief compliance officer and head of regulatory affairs.
Everlywell, a lab testing startup in Austin, Texas, has promoted Alexous Chukwuemeka from compliance manager to director of compliance and privacy. Chukwuemeka joined the firm in 2019.
Paul Conlin has joined Fanatics, a retail business that sells licensed sports stuff (“officially licensed everything,” the company likes to say) as assistant corporate controller. Conlin comes to Fanatics from Boeing, where he had been executive director of corporate audit since 2017. Here’s hoping he can dig up a Montreal Expos shirt for me…
