Compliance Jobs Report: June 2

The Compliance Jobs Report this week has news of yet another mess at Twitter, plus new hires or promotions at Citigroup, Santander, TD Synnex, and many others. Job leads this week in boxes, human resources, and healthcare; and Meme of the Week goes out to couples who just don’t get each other.

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 with the trainwreck otherwise known as Twitter, which just lost its second head of trust and safety in six months. Ella Irwin resigned from that role on Thursday after chief twit Elon Musk, who deserves that title more than he knows, publicly rebuked Irwin’s team for ruling that an anti-woman screed from a right-wing writer violated Twitter’s rules against hate speech. Irwin took over as head of trust and safety last November from Yoel Roth, who quit when Musk first took over the social media giant and began running it into the ditch. No word yet on who might now succeed Irwin, if anyone.

Back in the world of sane business organizations, Citigroup has promoted Cecilia Jefferson to senior vice president of regulatory risk. Jefferson has been with Citi for two years, and previously was compliance officer for brands and retail services. 

Donnetta Horseman has been named chief ethics and compliance officer for City of Hope, which actually is a large healthcare organization working on cancer treatment and research. Horseman comes to City of Hope after eight years at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Fla.

Also in India, Mukesh Kumar has joined Quinte Financial Technologies (we assume that’s a fintech firm, since “financial” and “technologies” are literally in its name) as executive in charge of AML processes. Kumar comes to Quinte after a stint at American Express as an AML analyst, and held similar roles at AirTel Payments Bank before that. 

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has named Mihaela Nistor chief risk officer. Nistor joins the New York Fed from Bloomberg, where she had been head of enterprise risk management since 2014. She succeeds Joshua Rosenberg, who after a long career at the bank is easing into a role as “adviser.”
