Compliance Jobs Report: March 19

The Compliance Jobs Report this week has numerous folks departing HSBC; plus new hires at CEVA Logistics, Assurity, Homepoint, and elsewhere. We have one very unfortunate milestone for an ex-compliance officer under indictment; job leads from California to New Jersey; and a peek at who’s the money behind all those GRC software deals.

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 news from HSBC, which has seen numerous compliance and risk officers depart from the bank recently. Joanna Keith, who had been the bank’s chief control officer for global commercial banking, has joined J.P. Morgan as an executive director. Marcus Wogart left his job as HSBC’s head of financial crimes compliance frameworks, to join NatWest Group as head of financial crime risk. Nick Duke, formerly HSBC’s head of surveillance governance and remediation, decamped to compliance software vendor Behavox in January. 

Mortgage origination firm Homepoint has named John Forlines chief risk officer. Forlines comes to Homepoint after a long career at Fannie Mae, where he most recently was chief risk officer. 

Assurity, a mutual insurance firm based (naturally) in Nebraska, has rehired Amanda Dutton as chief compliance officer and associate general counsel. Dutton was previously Assurity’s CCO for several years in the mid-2010s, and had been doing solo consulting since 2018. Now she’s back.

Miki Kamijyo has left her job as chief compliance officer at Annaly Capital Management, to join real estate firm Asana Partners as general counsel. Kamijyo had been CCO at Annaly since 2018. 

In France, Charles Paré has joined CEVA Logistics as chief compliance officer. Paré had been doing some compliance consulting work with Unisys since last fall, and prior to that had been at Philip Morris International running ethics & compliance for its Western Europe operations. 

Also in France, Lagardère Travel Retail, which runs duty-free shops in airports, has hired Carole Bonnassies as ethics and compliance officer (with a side job as data protection officer, too). Bonnassies comes to Lagardère from luxury goods maker LVMH, where she had been doing ethics and compliance consulting work since 2019. 

Job shift for Alan Gibson over at Microsoft. Gibson had been assistant general counsel for ethics and compliance since 2017; now he has a new title, director of legal and compliance innovation. (So, do they use Excel spreadsheets for compliance at Microsoft? Hmmm…)

And Candian transportation giant CN has hired Cyrus Reporter as vice president of government and regulatory affairs. Report comes to CN from Canadian law firm Gowling WLG Canada, where he’s been a partner since 2017; prior to that Reporter held several positions in Canadian government and political organizations. 


IU Health, the hospital system subsidiary of Indiana University, has named Fernanda Beraldi to the organization’s committee on values, ethics, social responsibility and pastoral services. Beraldi is senior director of ethics and compliance at Cummins Inc.

Matt Braun is celebrating 10 years with L Brands. Braun has held various anti-corruption roles at the fashion business and is currently director of global anti-corruption compliance. 

And we’re not quite sure what milestone this is, but remember the tale of Michael Cohn, former SEC staffer indicted for offering confidential information to a private equity firm so he could land a job there as chief compliance officer? Cohn pleaded guilty last fall. Now prosecutors are recommending six months in prison

Vendors & Service Providers

We noticed this week that GRC software player RSA Security, which also owns that Archer software I know some of you use, just accepted a private equity investment from Clearlake Capital. We don’t know exactly how much — “a significant investment,” the press release says. But this news is interesting because Clearlake has also made investments in MetricStream and also in Diligent, the group that acquired Galvanize and Steele Compliance last month. So if you’re wondering where the money comes from for all these GRC software deals, Clearlake is one of the prime suspects.

Product announcement: OCEG, the Open Compliance & Ethics Group, has just released a new tool called Policy Management Pro. If policy management is your thing, check it out.
