Compliance Jobs Report: July 1

This week the Compliance Jobs Report has updated on compliance professionals either coming or going from Dell, Yelp, Nissan, Conifer Health, McKesson, and many more. We also have some work anniversaries to celebrate; job leads in the Chicago region; and our Meme of the Week goes out to privacy breaches.

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 at 3M Corp., which has hired Sooji Seo as chief privacy officer and general counsel for information and digital initiatives. Seo had spent four years at Dell as vice president of ethics and compliance and chief privacy officer, until leaving the computer hardware giant in April. 

Tom Rudenko, head of internal audit at Yelp since 2014, is retiring. He does say he’s keeping his CPA license active in case he gets bored; one assumes he will keep his Radical Compliance newsletter subscription active as well. 

Jung Choi has left Stanley Black & Decker, where she had been assistant general counsel and head of the company’s ethics and compliance program since 2018. Choi departed the toolmaker to join Boxed, an online wholesale delivery business, as general counsel.

A mystery move! Judith Akinosho has left ByteDance (parent company of TikTok, the social media platform all you old farts don’t use) after 12 months there as head of ethics for the EMEA region. Akinosho says she has accepted a chief compliance officer role “elsewhere,” and promises more details in a formal announcement later this summer.

Another mystery move! Jennifer Mason is leaving Conifer Health Solutions, where she has been chief compliance officer for four years and served in various other compliance roles for five years before that. Mason says she is “very excited” about her next chapter, but is keeping that quiet while she takes some time to recharge. 

compliance jobsSam Marchand has joined Nissan Motor Corp. as an ethics and compliance program manager, working from Tennessee. Marchand comes to Nissan after five years at Bridgestone Americas, where she worked as a paralegal in compliance while working her way through several compliance and legal certification programs. 

NKT, a maker of green energy power cables based in Denmark, has promoted Mi Sook Park from head of group quality to head of group audit. Park has been with NKT since 2020.

Logan Health, a healthcare system based in Kalispell, Mont., has hired Adrienne Chase as chief compliance and privacy officer. Chase previously worked at Dickinson County Healthcare System in Michigan, where she had been corporate compliance and risk officer. 

Pharmaceutical wholesale giant McKesson has hired Staci Baker as director of ethics and compliance training, based in Boise, Idaho. Baker comes to McKesson from insurance giant USAA, where she had been senior manager for compliance risk and training since 2017.

Becki Berkeley has also departed from USAA, where she most recently had been senior business risk and controls adviser. Berkeley has joined SunRun (the solar energy subsidiary of Elon Musk’s empire) as senior compliance manager. 

Henry Susianto has joined Tokopedia, an e-commerce company in Indonesia, as head of compliance and internal control. Susianto comes to Tokopedia after 18 months at IQVIA, where he had been associate director for regional compliance while working in Singapore. 

Promoted: Cameron Franklin, at Onco360 Oncology Pharmacy, from compliance and privacy officer to senior compliance officer. Franklin has been with Onco360 since 2017.

Released, unfortunately: Stephen Clark, who had worked in compliance services at Ohio National Financial Services until his job was eliminated in a restructuring the other week. Clark had been with Ohio National for two years; anyone who has any job leads in the Cincinnati area, feel free to contact him. 

In Boston, Alexion Pharmaceuticals has hired Tracey Hannon as director of compliance for business partners. Hannon joins Alexion after two years at Ionis Pharmaceuticals (also based in Boston), where she had been compliance counsel. 

Another update on Andrea Barr, the chief audit executive at the Baltimore County School District who was disgracefully shown the door earlier this year by the school board. A Baltimore County judge has now ruled that Barr was wrongfully terminated, and ordered the school district to rehire her.

And British Columbia Investment Management Corp. (that’s in Canada) has promoted Michel Drolet from vice president of internal audit to chief audit executive and risk officer. Drolet has been with BCI since 2018.


Michael Montaque is celebrating one year at FirstEnergy Corp. in Ohio, where he is chief audit executive.

Yim Woodman is celebrating one year at Agoda, an online travel business based in Singapore, where she is senior ethics and compliance manager. 

Timothy Bolden has hit 10 years as chief compliance officer at American Fidelity in Oklahoma City.

And remember Gene Daniel Levoff, former corporate secretary at Apple, busted by the feds in 2019 for insider trading? He just pleaded guilty in a New Jersey federal court. Sentencing in November; he faces years in prison and fine of up to $5 million (equivalent to 5,005 iPhone 13 Pros).

Vendors and Service Providers

Tonya Baez has left her job as associate vice president of risk management at DePaul University, to join Protiviti as a director. Baez had been with DePaul in various roles for 10 years.
