Compliance Jobs Report: Dec. 4

The Compliance Jobs Report is back, and we have a lot to dig through from the holiday break! Compliance personnel on the move at Duke Energy, a new audit chief at GE, and more news from Pandora, Cox Enterprises, the VHA, and many more. We have three job openings in the Northeast to note, and our Meme of the Week goes out to due diligence.

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 with General Electric, which just snagged Brandi Thomas as chief audit executive. Thomas had been vice president of corporate audit and enterprise risk management at Delta Airlines since 2017. We wish her well, but mourn the demise of GE’s internal audit rotation program; the company ended it last month. 

In Washington, Matt Tuchow has moved across town: he had been chief compliance and business integrity officer at the Veterans Health Administration; and now is general counsel of the Office of Inspector General at the State Department. Tuchow’s deputy at the VHA, Tracey Bradley, has taken over as acting CCO and business integrity officer. 

Elizabeth Simon has joined FirstKey Homes as vice president of compliance. Simon comes to FirstKey from Cox Enterprises, where she had been director of ethics and compliance for a year (and held other compliance roles at Cox Communications prior to that). Amie McLemore, senior manager of ethics and compliance at Cox Communications, will succeed Simon as director of ethics and compliance for Cox Enterprises.

Remember Rayson Tan, who joined fintech firm Revolut a year ago as chief compliance officer in Singapore? Well, he’s out — joined Pictet, a private bank in Switzerland, as chief risk officer. Revolut is recruiting for a new head of compliance.

In Tampa, Fla., Nvèr Hasratyan has joined Citigroup as a vice president and regulatory compliance risk officer. Hasratyan comes to Citi after stints at Bank of America, JP Morgan, and Wells Fargo. That’s commitment to your industry.

European telecom provider VEON has promoted Kateryna Voina in its Ukraine operations, from senior ethics and compliance manager to head of investigations. Voina has been with VEON in various compliance roles since 2015.

Pharmaceutical firm Daiichi Sankyo has given Daniel Font a new role: the company has shifted him from director of compliance investigations, policy, and training to director of compliance investigations and privacy. Font has been with Daiichi since 2013.
