Compliance Jobs Report: Sept. 17

We have quite the international Compliance Jobs Report this week, with updates from Canada, Colombia, Dubai, Serbia, and elsewhere. Also new hires here in the United States at Wells Fargo, Meggitt, and more. Some cutting-edge tech companies are looking for chief compliance officers, and our Meme of the Week goes out to the Matrix.

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.
