Compliance Jobs News

Glenn Leon, chief ethics and compliance officer at Hewlett Packard Enterprises since 2015, is leaving that job to serve as chief of the Fraud Section of the Justice Department. This is a bit of a homecoming for Leon; he served as deputy chief of the section during the Obama Administration. His boss will be assistant attorney general Kenneth Polite, who served as chief compliance officer of Entergy Corp. for a year in the late 2010s.

The World Trade Organization has hired Mary Eastwood Jones to be head of its Office of Internal Oversight, working from Switzerland. Jones previously was executive director of the Association of Corporate Investigators for eight months; prior to that she was head of investigations at Oxford University Press

compliance jobsPanasonic North America has hired Monica Lopez Reinmiller to be its new head of global ethics and compliance (and also assistant general counsel, but the compliance role is way cooler). Reinmiller joins Panasonic from T-Mobile, where she spent five years in various legal and compliance roles.

Jose Solis has retired from Brother International Corp., where he’d been director of ethics and compliance since 2017. Solis’ next move remains unknown, which is probably the best update one can give when retiring.
