Compliance Jobs News
This week we begin with a farewell to Mia Reini, who is leaving Home Depot after four years there leading and expanding its ethics and compliance team. Reini is moving to Tennessee and “taking a break” on the family farm there, which will include beekeeping and honey harvesting. We hope she enjoys the break and returns to corporate compliance someday soon!
Regions Bank, a mid-sized bank headquartered in Alabama, has promoted Anna Brackin from head of corporate banking strategy and administration to chief compliance officer. (Technically she is moving from one executive vice president role to another, but everybody knows that landing a job in compliance is a promotion.) Brackin has been with Regions since 2020.)
AmeriLife, an insurance and retirement planning business headquartered in Florida, has hired Jeffrey Halperin as chief risk and compliance officer. Halperin comes to the company after six years at Brighthouse Financial, where he had been chief compliance officer and associate general counsel.
Erica Day has been promoted at Victoria’s Secret, from manager of ethics and compliance to director of ethics and compliance. Day has been with Victoria’s Secret since 2021.
Ashley Fieber has a new role at Sumitomo Mitsui Bank. She had been head of anti-fraud, bribery and corruption; now she is an executive director and Bank Secrecy Act compliance officer at Manufacturers Bank, a subsidiary of Sumitomo. Fieber has been with Sumitomo since 2020.
Masco Corp. has hired Jacqueline Livernois as a paralegal in the ethics and compliance function. Livernois comes to Masco after seven years as a compliance specialist at the Altarum Institute, a Michigan nonprofit working on healthcare issues.
Engineering and construction firm KBR has promoted Irina Lazieva, from director of anti-corruption compliance to director of business integrity and legal. Lazieva has been with KBR since 2019.
Remember Ruth Vetter, who had been vice president of ethics at Boeing a few years back? She’s now deputy general counsel at the Department of Defense, working on personnel issues. Vetter comes to the Defense Department after a year at the Defense Logistics Agency, where she had been general counsel.
In Germany, Madhumitha Ravikumar has joined SFC Energy as vice president for risk management, internal control, compliance, and ESG. (Yikes, that’s a big portfolio.) Ravikumar had previously worked at Global Savings Group in Germany, where she had been director of governance, risk, and compliance.
In Britain, Rebekah Coleman has left her job as chief ethics and compliance officer for the U.K. Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, a role she held since 2021. Where next, you ask? Coleman is now compliance director at Vesuvius, a manufacturing business that works in “molten metal flow engineering and technology,” which sounds way cool.
And in regulator world, the U.S. Justice Department has announced two hires to run the corporate enforcement program at its National Security Division. Ian Richardson is the division’s first chief counsel for corporate enforcement; he previously was an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York. Christian Nauvel will be deputy chief counsel for corporate enforcement; he previously was senior counsel to the assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division, Ken Polite, who left the department for a cushy private-sector job earlier this year.

Open Req Orders
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, which runs public transit throughout the Boston area, is looking for a director of reporting and compliance. Job is based in Boston.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina is looking for a chief compliance officer. Job is based in Durham, N.C. The WittKieffer recruitment firm is handling the search.
The University of North Texas at Dallas is looking for a chief compliance officer. Job is based in Dallas, naturally.
