Compliance Jobs Report: May 5

Another huge Compliance Jobs Report this week, to coincide with that robust national jobs report we saw earlier today! Personnel moves at Austal USA, Freeport McMoRan, Hershey’s, Conagra, and many more. We also have job leads in water, animal medicines, and river cruises; and Meme of the Week goes out to the auditors.

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 Austal USA, the American subsidiary of Australian shipbuilding giant Austal. It just hired Adam Overstreet to be vice president of legal affairs and chief compliance officer. Overstreet comes to the company from rival shipbuilder Huntington Ingalls, where he’d been senior counsel since 2018. Earlier in his career Overstreet also spent 10 years at the Justice Department as a federal prosecutor — and given that federal authorities just indicted three former Austal USA executives for accounting fraud, that might be the more relevant experience here. 

Mining giant Freeport McMoRan has promoted deputy chief compliance officer Michael Pass to be chief compliance officer. Pass has been with Freeport in various compliance roles since 2011. 

Looks like the head of internal audit at Hershey Co. is retiring. Or at least, Sanjay Singh, who had been head of audit at the chocolatier since 2018 has changed his job status to “eternal hiatus and permanent sabbatical.” Interpret that as you will.
