Compliance Jobs News

This week we begin with two items from home mortgage giant Freddie Mac. First, Dennis Hermonstyne has joined the company as chief compliance officer. Hermonstyne comes to Freddie from Santander Bank, where he had been chief compliance officer since 2017. He starts the new job Sept. 19. He succeeds Jerry Mauricio, who left the company in June after nearly four years there. 

Amanda Gleason-Perdue has also joined Freddie Mac, with the title of senior compliance operations. Gleason-Perdue previously spent 12 years at environmental services firm Harsco Corp., where most recently she was senior global compliance specialist. 

We also have an update on Russell Hunter, who departed BT a few weeks ago after six years there in various legal and compliance roles. He just turned up at Clear Channel Communication, as head of legal and regulatory compliance. Still working in London.

Sticking with London: Pamela Stacey has left HS2, the high-speed railway connecting London to Birmingham, where she had been head of corporate assurance since 2016. No word on Stacey’s next destination.

And still more gossip from London! Word on the street is that a flock of risk and compliance executives have resigned from Revolut, one of those fintech startups that acts like a bank but isn’t quite a bank. According to City A.M., five Revolut executives have quit this month, including UK chief risk officer Victoria Stubbs; UK head of regulatory compliance Justine Wootton, and UK money laundering reporting officer (MLRO) Mathew Seneviratne

Here in the Western hemisphere, Everado Maya has been promoted at Western Union’s Mexico operations, from supervisor of AML compliance to manager of the AML compliance program. Maya has been with WU for seven years. 

Carmella Dellinger has joined medical device maker Teleflex as compliance officer for the Americas region and interventional urology product line (ouch). Dellinger comes to Teleflex after two years as director of compliance for BTG Spark Pharma in Pennsylvania. 

Versant Health, a health insurer based in Maryland, has rehired Hayley Buckles as chief compliance officer — for the second time. Buckles had been working as a solo consultant for the past year, but worked for Versant from 2017 to 2021, including a stint as chief compliance officer at the end of the 2010s.

Online sports betting website FanDuel has promoted Carolyn Renzin, from chief risk and compliance officer to chief legal and compliance officer. Nice to see the “compliance” part of the title endures. 

Here in Cambridge, Mass. (world headquarters of Radical Compliance, ya know), Ipsen Pharmaceuticals has promoted Ali Lyons, from head of global business ethics for Europe and Latin America; to vice president of business ethics for North America. 

Janine Ryan, chief compliance officer of the Australian Stock Exchange, for two years, has departed the exchange. Not sure what’s going on down there (if you do, let me know), but the headlines in Australian business press says “the exodus of executives at the ASX continues,” which is not a good sign. 

RPM International, maker of coatings and solvents such as Krud-Kutter, Mean Green, and many more, has promoted Bryan Gillette from senior director of internal audit to vice president of internal audit

Brittani Summers has joined Sprinter Health in San Diego as senior compliance manager. Summers comes to Sprinter after four years at Precision Diagnostics, where most recently she had also been senior compliance manager. 

And Algebra Capital, a financial services firm in Portugal, has hired André Matos Lino as compliance and risk officer. Lino joins the firm after 10 years at BNP Paribas, most recently as a compliance officer in Lisbon. 


Joy Arnold is celebrating one year at Clincierge, a Philadelphia firm that manages patient support services and logistics for clinical trials, where she is chief compliance officer. 

David Chavez is celebrating one year at CVS Health, where he is chief audit executive.

Siewhiang McCreight is celebrating five years as chief risk officer at the Auto Club Group, the second-largest AAA club in North America.

Vendors and Service Providers

Maria D’Avanzo has left her job as chief ethics and compliance officer at real estate giant Cushman & Wakefield, to join compliance software vendor Traliant as chief evangelist. D’Avanzo had been at Cushman in various compliance and legal roles for 10 years.
