Compliance Jobs News

We begin this week with Pall Corp., manufacturer of filtration systems and purification products, which just hired Tiffany Archer as global head of compliance, risk, and privacy. Archer comes to Pall after five years at Panasonic Avionics, where she most recently had been head of ethics and compliance for the Americas region.

At Credit Suisse, the perpetually beleaguered bank has named Nitesh Patel and Roger Senteler as interim co-heads of the internal audit function. They succeed Raphael Lopez Lorenzo, who was named chief compliance officer last month, as Credit Suisse tries to recover from multiple risk and compliance setbacks suffered earlier this year. Both men have already been working in audit and risk management roles at the bank for several years. 

Compliance jobsOnline trading app Robinhood, the darling of day traders and subject of scrutiny by regulators all over the capital markets, has hired Benjamin Melnicki to be chief compliance officer for the firm’s cryptocurrency unit. Melnicki joins Robinhood after 10 months as chief compliance officer at Grayscale Investments; before that he spent a year at fintech firm Ripple as head of regulatory affairs for the Americas region. He succeeds Scott Hershorin, who departed Robinhood in June. 

In Sweden, Simon Grindberg has a new role at global engineering conglomerate Sandvik: Grindberg is now head of third-party risk management across the entire Sandvik group; he had previously been chief compliance officer for Sandvik Machining Solutions, and has been with Sandvik in other legal and compliance roles for nearly 20 years. (The company is searching to fill his old job at Sandvik Machining, by the way.)

All the way from Melbourne, Australia, Luke Raven has joined fintech firm Wise — “we’re making a positive, irreversible change in the world of finance” — as compliance manager for the New Zealand and Australia region. Raven comes to Wise from Westpac, where he had been senior manager of anti-money laundering and financial crime for the last year. 

Also in Australia, Feng Shen-Gauthier has moved into a new role at EnergyAustralia. She is no longer compliance leader for strategy and program delivery; she is planning and delivery leader for energy trading. 

James Boynton has a new role at HSBC in London, moving from the global markets chief control office to be director of markets and securities services.

Rick Moyer is retiring from Stanford University, where he has been chief risk officer for five years and associate vice president for audit, compliance, and privacy for 10 years before that — so a total of 15 years running compliance and risk management issues at Stanford. Moyer wrote up a farewell piece for the university’s media department if you want to read his lessons learned over the years.

Ashok Marin has left his job as chief compliance officer at Immunomedics, to take a new gig as chief legal officer at Rafael Holdings, a pharmaceutical holding company working on cancer treatments. Marin had been with Immunomedics for three years. Like any good pharma professional, he’s based in New Jersey.

In Amsterdam, Stéphanie Letessier has joined Doctors Without Borders as an internal auditor, working on anti-money laundering issues. Letessier joins the group after working several years as an audit and risk management consultant for various non-governmental organizations. 

Dapper Labs, a software company that makes computer games using blockchain technology, has hired Lana Schwartzman as chief compliance officer. Schwartzman comes to Dapper from Paxful, a digital currency platform, where she spent three years as chief compliance officer. 

HemoCue, a medical device manufacturer in Sweden, has promoted Johanna Odh Englund to global business compliance manager. Englund had been customer operations coordinator for the prior 11 years, working on trade compliance and related issues.

And remember Caroline West, who had been global chief compliance officer for five years at Olympus Corp., until she stepped down from that role last April? She just turned up on the board of directors at Helio Argos, a compliance analytics tool for the life sciences industry. She’ll be serving alongside Amy Pawloski, former chief compliance officer at Endo Pharmaceuticals, who joined Helio’s board last year. More compliance officers on boards!
