Compliance Jobs Report: May 27

The Compliance Jobs Report goes global this week, with personnel updates in India, Spain, Peru, France, Canada, Switzerland, and even a few here in the United States. We also have several compliance officers leaving corporate jobs for consulting, plus the most bizarre internal audit job listing I’ve ever seen.  

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 Glencore, which has promoted Jacqueline Wyrsch from compliance officer to senior compliance officer. Rather timely, considering that other news about Glencore you might’ve heard earlier this week… 

Citibank has hired George Lewis as vice president of HR risk and controls — a title I don’t believe we’ve previously seen in the Jobs Report. Lewis previously worked at CHEP, a global product packaging giant, helping to run the procurement-to-payment processes for CHEP’s North America operations.

Kalisa Barratt has joined Shields Health Solutions, which provides pharmacy services to hospital systems, as chief compliance and privacy officer. Barratt comes to Shields from Atrius Health, a healthcare system in suburban Boston (used by yours truly, as it happens), where she had also been chief compliance and privacy officer. 

Farm Credit Mid-America, which lives up to its name by being a credit union in Kentucky, has promoted Camille Moore from internal audit manager to chief auditor. Moore has been with Farm Credit in various roles since 2016.

We also have lots of international updates this week, perhaps because the United States is already in a long-weekend coma. So, going around the world… 

In India, Hitesh Grover has joined pharmaceutical giant GSK as an ethics and compliance officer in its consumer healthcare division. Grover comes to GSK from Zimmer Biomet, where he had been director of compliance for India since 2020. 

In France, Lubana Abdou-Barrière has joined beIN Media Group as senior compliance counsel in its Paris offices. Abdou-Barrière joins the company (owned by the government of Qatar) after six years at Adisseo, where she most recently was chief compliance, risk, and audit officer. 

In Peru, Rosalyn Accostupa has joined CONFIEP, an economic development association, as integrity officer. Accostupa joins the organization after four years at ScotiaBank, where she most recently had been senior compliance officer in the wealth and treasury division for the Peru office. 

In Spain, Jimena Sastre has joined EASY Payment & Finance as chief compliance officer. Sastre previously had been a professor at the beautifully named La Universidad Europea Miguel de Cervantes, where she taught a master’s program in corporate compliance. 

And WonderFi Technologies, a Canadian startup that runs a fintech app for people who dabble in cryptocurrencies, has hired Torstein Braaten as chief compliance officer. Braaten comes to the firm (“the compliant crypto ecosystem for investors,” whatever that means) after a year as chief compliance officer at Bitbuy, another Canadian crypto trading outfit. Earlier in his career Braaten was chief compliance officer for the Bank of Montreal’s capital markets division.

Milestones

Ed Hanover is celebrating one year as chief ethics and compliance officer at supermarket giant Albertsons.

Paulina Lamantia has retired from Amica Insurance, after 24 years there in various internal audit roles (most recently as senior assistant vice president for audit). We wish her well, and readers may enjoy her quick recap of how internal audit has changed during her career. 

Vendors & Service Providers

Ben Buckwalter has left his job as chief compliance officer at Andreessen Horowitz, one of the premier venture capital firms in Silicon Valley; to join law firm Gunderson Dettmer as a partner in its fintech practice. Buckwalter had been at Andreessen since 2018.

Shaunta Bing has joined Religroup, a consulting firm that helps federal agencies with data privacy obligations, as a compliance specialist. Bing previously worked at HSCSN Health Plan in Washington, D.C., as a compliance manager. 

Leslie Boles has left Waud Capital Partners, where she had been senior director of compliance and audit, to launch her own consulting firm Revu Healthcare. We always applaud someone launching a new business!

Candace Jasso has joined the Wallenstein Law Group in Houston as “compliance expert.” (More law firms should have titles like that.) Jasso joins the firm from Trillium Flow Technologies, also in Houston, where she had been global compliance manager since 2019.

Scott Garland has joined Affiliated Monitors as a managing director, working on cyber, fraud, and compliance monitoring. Garland comes to the firm after 14 years at the U.S. attorney’s office in Boston, where most recently he was acting chief of the national security unit.

Open Req Orders

Wacker, the German chemical company, is looking for a chief compliance officer for its North America operations. Job can be based either in Ann Arbor, Mich., or Charlseton, Tenn. 

Relief International is looking for a chief ethics and compliance officer. Job is based in Washington, D.C.

And Granite Telecommunications is looking for (sit down before you read further, audit professionals) a director of internal audit and payroll, which is the weirdest job combination we’ve ever seen. Moreover, Granite reports about $1.65 billion in revenue, so I’m really puzzled why they can’t give audit the independence it deserves. Anyway, job is based in Boston.

Compliance Meme of the Week

That’s all for this week’s report.
