Compliance Jobs Report: June 4

Another global Compliance Jobs Report this week. We have several personnel moves in the United States (including a bunch of folks leaving corporate roles for vendors and service providers), and many more moves around the world: in Brazil, Britain, France, India, Denmark, and elsewhere. Job leads this week in logistics, entertainment, and fashion.

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 with Options Clearing Corp., the world’s largest clearinghouse for equities derivatives, which just named David Ye as chief risk officer. Ye most recently had been executive in residence at Duke University, and prior to that held senior risk management roles at Guardian Life, State Street, and other large financial firms. 

AnnaMarie Merrill has joined Organon, a pharma company working in women’s health issues, as assistant vice president for global ethics and compliance operations. Merrill comes to Organon after 18 years at Merck, most of them as a compliance director.

North to Alaska, Miranda Strong has taken a job as director of government relations for Calista Corp., which represents 56 native villages across the state. Strong had been working at the Lane Powell law firm for the last year; prior to that, she was chief ethics and compliance officer for the Bering Straits Native Corp

South to Atlanta, Mosi Platt has joined, a web-based platform for visual media collaboration (like, collaborating on special effects for movies) as GRC manager. Platt comes to Frame from tech company Elastic, where he had been team lead for information security governance. Fun fact: Platt took a month off between jobs and spent the time building a replica Bugatti race car out of Lego.

We have more U.S.-based compliance news further down in the Vendors & Service Providers sections. Meanwhile, we also have a flock of international personnel news this week… 

In Brazil, Leonardo Pinto has joined financial services startup Monolith as head of compliance here. (Monolith bills itself as “de-fi” technology, for decentralized finance, because we don’t have enough corny acronyms in the world right now.) Pinto was chief compliance officer of Bit Capital in Brazil until the start of 2020; he spent the last 18 months as a compliance consultant. 

Elizabeth Catlin (“Litza” to her friends) has joined technology manufacturer ABB as head of assurance, risk, and internal control. Catlin comes to ABB after more than 12 years at O-I, a ceramics manufacturer; most recently she had been O-I’s finance director for Southwest Europe. She’s based in France. 

Also in France is Wissem Semmar, who has been named country compliance officer for the Corin Group, a medical device company headquartered in Britain. Semmar had previously been compliance manager for insurance giant AXA, where she was in charge of anti-bribery compliance for the firm’s French subsidiaries. 

NHS Supply Chain, a subsidiary of the National Health Service in Britain, has named Claire Crabtree compliance manager. Crabtree comes to the firm from Periculum Associates, a risk advisory firm, where she had been a manager in the advisory practice.

Morten Fibiger-Dagnæs has been named interim chief compliance officer of Lægernes Pension & Bank in Denmark. Fibiger-Dagnæs had already been a compliance officer for the bank since last November.  

We have two items from India. First, the state-owned Union Bank of India has named A.K. Vinod to be chief compliance officer. He succeeds K.L. Raju, who had been CCO and general manager at the bank. (A new law in India mandates that all banks now have an independent compliance officer, who will hold the job for at least three years.) Vinod had been an executive handling small- and mid-sized banking at Union Bank  until now. 

And Shivkant Tiwari left his job as a compliance specialist at Deutsche Bank, to join Barclays Corporate Banking as a senior business consultant. Based in the city of Pune. 


Noelle Valentine is celebrating one year as chief compliance officer for Healogics, down in Jacksonville, Fla.
