Compliance Jobs News

This week we begin at Walmart: the retail giant has hired Howard Hacker as vice president of health and wellness compliance. In that role Hacker will manage regulatory compliance and broader “health and wellness compliance” for Walmart’s clinics, pharmacy, and optical operations. Hacker comes to Walmart after six years at Tenet Healthcare, where he had been executive vice president and chief compliance officer. He’ll report to Matt Miner, Walmart’s global chief ethics and compliance officer. (Yes, that Matt Miner, ex-bigwig at the Justice Department during the Trump Administration.) 

Michele Abraham is leaving her job as senior director of ethics and compliance at Cooper Standard. Abraham, one of the most delightful compliance professionals in Ohio, has been with Cooper for almost five years. Apparently she does have another career move lined up; “more on that another time soon,” she says.

JPMorgan Chase has hired Joni Forster Galvin as vice president for global anti-corruption compliance. Galvin comes to the bank after 18 months at Washington University in St. Louis as a lecturer and director of government lawyering externships; prior to that she spent three years with the New York Police Department as a lawyer and privacy officer. 

Lisa Beth Lentini Walker has joined payments processing firm Marqeta as assistant general counsel. Walker had been running her own consulting firm, Lumen Worldwide Endeavors, for a few years; prior to that she held compliance roles at Deluxe Corp. and Carlson Wagonlit Travel. Lumen will continue to do its usual business, with Walker handing off day-to-day operations to a new hire. Who? Further details below!

And one more from the sub-continent: KRBL Ltd., one of the largest exporters of basmati rice in the world, has named Jyoti Verma compliance officer and corporate secretary.

Jean-Marie Cotro has left AstraZeneca, where he most recently had been compliance director for France. No word yet on what Cotro might do next; he had been with AZ in various roles for 12 years.
