Compliance Jobs News

This week we begin at Harvard University, where Paul Liebman is stepping down after three years as the university’s institutional risk and compliance officer (that is, Harvard’s chief compliance officer). Liebman is moving to Vanderbilt University to serve as chief compliance officer starting at the end of the month. Liebman has worked in higher ed for more than a decade and is an excellent human being. 

Healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente has hired Jacqueline Baratian as its new chief compliance and privacy officer. Baratian will join Kaiser starting Sept. 11, with direct reporting to the board’s audit committee (yay!) and administrative reporting to the chief legal officer (acceptable given the audit committee reporting line). She comes to Kaiser after four years at Ascension, one of the largest Catholic-affiliated healthcare systems in the United States, where she was chief compliance officer. 

In Texas, Michael McLaughlin has retired from Dell Technologies — where he had been chief ethics and compliance officer since 2000! We wish him well after his many years on the job. 

compliance jobsKristen Prohl has left her job as deputy general counsel and chief compliance officer at ITT Corp. to be general counsel and chief administrative officer at government contracting giant Unisys. Prohl had been at ITT for two years; no word yet on who might succeed her there in that compliance officer role.

Databricks, a technology company based in San Francisco, has hired Jessica Beane as a paralegal working on ethics and compliance issues. Beane previously worked at the clothing retailer Gap for 12 years in various roles, most recently as a senior manager for compliance and ethics. 

Promoted: Spencer Mazyck, at Dolby Labs, from director of ethics and compliance to senior director. Mazyck has been with the audio technology company since 2018.

Matt Redman has joined Johnson Controls as director of global environmental and audit, working from Johnson offices in South Carolina. Redman comes to the company from Ingevity, a chemicals manufacturer, where he had been director of sustainability. He also spent many years prior to that in sustainability and EHS roles at Harley-Davidson.

Ashley Minor has joined insurance giant AIG as fraud and recovery training manager. Minor previously worked at fellow insurance giant Kemper as an instructional designer. 

Sinch, a Swedish technology company that supports messaging apps, has hired Robert Glidden as internal audit manager. Glidden is actually based in Brazil, and comes to the company after stints at Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional, a mining business, and food giant Gavilon Group.

Also in Brazil, Naraiana Souza has joined chemicals company Brenntag as ethics and compliance manager for the Latin America region. Souza previously worked at Stericycle as a senior ethics and compliance manager for the company’s Brazil operations. 

Enstar Group, a Bermuda-based insurance firm, has hired Sarah Ruberry as chief compliance officer. Ruberry had previously been CEO of Catalina General, a reinsurance firm, since 2020.

Bianance has promoted Osama Tariq from manager of global fraud investigations to senior manager. Tariq is based in Dubai. Given Binance’s many regulatory woes, we’re sure he keeps plenty busy.

And in India, Aditi Sharma has joined SK Finance, a regional financial firm in the north of the country, as compliance manager. She comes to SK from the delightfully named AU Small Finance Bank, where she had been assistant manager for business compliance. 


Carolina Ceballos is celebrating one year as chief compliance officer at Paxos, a blockchain technology company. 

Randy Early is celebrating one year as head of internal audit for Mohawk Industries.

Hideo Hatano is celebrating one year at Dentsu Group, one of the largest marketing and PR agencies in Japan, where he is executive director of internal audit. 

Fuat Kanmaz just hit one year at Moneygram, where he is internal control officer in its Turkey operations. 

And Lance Lanciault is celebrating one year at Snap, where he is chief compliance officer. 

Vendors & Service Providers

First, an update on Kenneth Polite, who stepped down as head of the Criminal Division at the Justice Department at the end of July. Polite has landed at law firm Sidley Austin, where he will be making gobs of money as partner and co-leader of the firm’s white-collar defense practice. We would expect no less from senior government officials.

Maria D’Avanzo has parted ways with consulting firm Traliant, where she had been chief evangelist for the last year. You may also remember her from her days at Cushman & Wakefield, where she had been chief ethics and compliance officer. 

The Ethics & Compliance Initiative has launched a searchable library of ESG, sustainability, and corporate impact reports from more than 100 large companies around the world. If you’re panicking about your sustainability program looking to benchmark your ESG efforts, there’s one resource you can use.

Open Req Orders

The U.K. Nuclear Decommissioning Authority is looking for a chief ethics and compliance officer. Job is based in Britain, obviously, but NDA headquarters are in Cumbria in the Lake District of England. Korn Ferry has been hired as the recruitment firm to fill the vacancy; contact Nick Rose at [email protected]

89Bio, a biotech firm developing treatments for liver and heart conditions, is looking for a SOX compliance manager. Job is based in San Francisco; salary listed as $140,000 to $155,000, a surprisingly clear and reasonable pay range. 

OneTrust — yes, the compliance software vendor — is looking for a director of third-party risk. Job can be remote, although OneTrust itself is headquartered in Atlanta. Salary range is listed at $187,000 to $280,000, which is ridiculously wide and unclear.
