Compliance Jobs News

This week we begin at Disney, which just re-hired Rafael Ribeiro to be deputy chief compliance officer. Ribeiro had previously worked at Disney as a senior compliance executive until the start of this year, when he bugged out to be a partner at law firm Hogan Lovells. Then Disney fired its chief compliance officer in March; her compliance duties were taken over by general counsel Horacio Gutierrez. Now Ribeiro is back at the Big Mouse working with Gutierrez to run the compliance show. 

Chris DePippo has joined Morgan Stanley as an executive director supporting the bank’s enterprise controls committee, which is the in-house team that drives enterprise risk management.
