The Compliance Jobs Report is back, and with another big report! We have new hires at Leidos, HireRight, Wesco Distribution, McKinsey, and elsewhere; departures at MGM Grand and a few other places; promotions at Activision Blizzard and Allianz; and job leads in law firms, semiconductors, and more semiconductors. 

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 Leidos, the IT services contractor based in Virginia; the company just hired Thomas Sanglier as chief audit executive. Sanglier comes to Leidos from Raytheon, where he spent the last six years as a senior director of finance, operations, and audit. 

Silifa Wallace has left her job at Boston University, where she had been associate vice president of internal audit since 2019 (and in various other audit or finance roles since 2013). Wallace moved across town to Community Servings, a food and meals nonprofit, where she is CFO. 

Cynthia Boumann is another who left her role as an audit executive to move into the CFO seat. Boumann had been vice president of internal audit at Dover Corp. for the last 11 years; and now has joined OccamSec, a delightfully named cybersecurity firm, as chief financial officer.

Talk about cashing out: Robert Rudloff has retired after 19 years as head of internal audit at MGM Resorts International. Rudloff also served on the board of the International Association of Gaming Auditors, and volunteered in various capacities for the Institute of Internal Auditing; in one form or another Rudloff had been in the auditing business for 42 years. He will be missed. 

Joe Bruening has joined HireRight, provider of background checks, drug tests, and other employment verification services, as director of governance, risk, and compliance. Bruening comes to HireRight after a year at eHealth as director of GRC; some of you might know him from the 12 years he spent at software firm RSAM as a principal consultant. 

SouthState Bank in Columbia, S.C., has promoted Brad Gainey from risk operations support manager to senior vice president of risk operations. 

Russell Hunter has departed from his job as senior manager of ethics and compliance at BT in London. No word yet on what he might do next.

And Howard Dean (the compliance professional, not the one-time presidential candidate) has parted ways with UNICEF’s Office of Internal Audit and Investigations, where he had been on a one-year contract to advise the agency on various issues. Dean is currently hanging his own shingle as a solo anti-corruption compliance consultant. 

Activision Blizzard, trying to recover from a sexual harassment scandal that the board says didn’t really happen, has promoted Adam Kretz from director of ethics and compliance investigations to senior director. Kretz has been with the videogame giant since March of this year. 

In Pittsburgh, Wesco Distribution has hired Jessica Nayden as manager of ethics and compliance programs. Nayden joins the logistics giant from EQT Corp., where she had also been an ethics and compliance program manager. 

Wendy Walker has joined Prosperity Life, a life insurance business based in New York, as compliance manager. Walker comes to Prosperity after more than 20 years at insurance giant Genworth, the last eight of them as a compliance specialist in Genworth’s long-term care claims operation. 

Click n’ Close, a provider of digital mortgage services, has promoted Sady Duffner Mauldin from compliance counsel to chief compliance officer. Mauldin has been with the Texas company for 18 months.

Adam Rattner has joined Ria Health, a telehealth provider that focuses on alcoholism, as vice president of legal and compliance. Rattner joins Ria Health after only a few months at Olive, another online health services business; prior to that he was Wellth as director of legal and compliance. 

Zeta Suite, an online payments startup based in San Francisco (aren’t they all?), has hired Karla Booe as chief compliance officer. Booe comes to Zeta after 27 years at FIS, most of that time as director of compliance operations. 

In Switzerland, luxury goods maker Richemont has hired Elia Vasile as regulatory compliance learning manager. Vasile previously spent nearly 10 years in ethics and compliance roles at Philip Morris International, apparently with a short travel break squeezed between that gig and this one. Good for her.

Allianz Brasil has promoted Eduardo Duarte from chief audit executive to “in charge of risk management, internal controls, and compliance.” Not quite sure what that title means but it sounds excellent. (“My role here? I’m in charge.”) Duarte has been with Allianz Brasil since 2012.

Atlanta-based Homestead Smart Health Plans has hired Lisette Kaska as compliance officer. Kaska comes to Homestead after two years at Meritain Health, where she had been compliance leader. 

Software giant SAP has hired Vinayak Bindal as compliance officer, working in the company’s Canada operations and focusing on ethical leadership. Bindal joins SAP from Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, where he had been assistant director of corporate compliance. 

Cristina Revelo has joined McKinsey as director of client service compliance. Revelo comes to the consulting firm after 15 months with Affiliated Monitors, where she had been deputy director of corporate monitoring. Prior to that she was at Walmart.

And Ohio University (which is not the same as Ohio State University) has restructured its audit and compliance operations. The two functions have been consolidated into a single new Office of Audit, Risk, and Compliance; and that office will be headed by Laura Myers. Myers has been with Ohio University in various roles for nearly 20 years, and most recently was deputy chief strategy and innovation officer. She will report to Marion Candrea, the school’s chief audit executive.


Forrest Deegan is celebrating one year as vice president of ethics and compliance at Victoria’s Secret. Unfortunately Victoria’s Secret just trimmed its corporate workforce by 160 people (5 percent of total corporate headcount). Unclear whether those cuts hit the compliance team, although Deegan seems still at his post

Dan LaFrance just hit one year as chief compliance officer at construction firm Balfour Beatty US.

Keith Bernhard is celebrating five years as chief audit executive of Hamilton Insurance Group in Bermuda

Lisa Graham is celebrating 10 years at McKesson, where she is director of compliance program services.
