Compliance Jobs Report: May 6

Another week, another big Compliance Jobs Report. We have compliance officers coming or going at AB InBev, TikTok, Deutsche Bank, and others; also a bevy of promotions at American Express, Cardinal Health, LyondellBasell, and many more. Job leads this week are up and down the East Coast in biotech, insurance, and power equipment; and our Meme of the Week goes out to risk assessments.

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

This week we begin in the world of beer: Matt Galvin has departed his job as global vice president for ethics and compliance at Anheuser-Busch InBev, to join Harvard Business School as a research fellow. Galvin says he’ll be exploring how to use disruptive technologies (read: blockchain) to boost analytics of compliance data. (I interviewed Galvin back in 2019 about how he was using data analytics to enhance AB InBev’s compliance program, if you’d like to know more about what he’s doing.) 

TikTok, the online video sharing service for people younger than me, has hired Jenny Chung Savidge as head of legal compliance and data security for the United States. Savidge joins TikTok from data research firm IHS Markit, where she had been chief ethics, compliance, privacy, and risk officer since 2015.
