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 GE Healthcare, which just hired Mara Senn as executive global compliance leader for investigations, monitoring, and assurance. Senn joins GE Healthcare from Zimmer Biomet, where she had been senior counsel for global compliance investigations since 2020. Senn also says she’s hiring! We have the details in our Open Req Orders section below.

Medtech giant Becton Dickinson has given chief ethics and compliance officer Michelle Quinn a battlefield promotion to acting general counsel. Quinn is succeeding Samrat Khichi, who is leaving BD at the end of this month. Quinn has been with the company since 2019, and has been deputy general counsel and CCO since last February.

Changing of the guard at Temple University. Chief compliance officer Alejandro Diaz is stepping down after five years in that role and leaving the university; we’re not sure yet where he is going next. Susan Smith, who currently serves as senior counsel, will serve as interim chief compliance officer. Smith has been with Temple in various legal roles for 11 years. 

Talk about going up in the world: Otis Elevator has hired Elizabeth Getrost as head of internal audit. Getrost comes to Otis after two years at Carrier Corp. as associate director of internal audit.

Cathy Herzog is leaving her job as senior manager of global compliance at Integer Holdings Corp., a contract manufacturer of medical devices. Herzog says she is joining Emmes, a clinical research organization — and although she didn’t specify exactly what role she’ll take at Emmes, one hopes she remains in compliance. Herzog had been with Integer in various roles for 17 years. 

Stepan Co., a chemicals manufacturer, has hired Isabella Gichiri as global manager of ethics and compliance. Gichiri joins Stepan from GEHA Health, where she spent the last two years as a senior compliance specialist.

Octopus Investments, an investment firm based in London, has hired Sarah-Rose Perry as head of compliance. Perry joins Octopus (which, let’s be real, sounds like it should be at the heart of some techno-thriller) from Singer Capital Markets, where she had been head of compliance for three years. 

In Florida, Daniel Villavisanis has joined HCA Florida Kendall Hospital as director of ethics and compliance. Villavisanis had previously worked for five years at Broward Health, most recently as regional compliance officer.

And Jason Hall has quit his job as chief compliance officer at Inland Empire Health Plan in California, “to take some time off and consider a career change.” Hall did heap a bundle of praise on IEHP and says anyone looking for a CCO job in healthcare should watch for his old job to be posted soon.
