Compliance Jobs News

This week we begin with an ending at Hewlett-Packard. HP’s chief audit executive, Beth Howe, is leaving the computing giant after 17 years to join microprocessor company SiTime as chief financial officer. Howe had been head of audit at HP since 2021. No word yet on who might succeed her there. 

Colleen Dorsey has been named chief ethics and compliance officer at Cognovi Labs, an AI startup working on predictive analytics for customer behavior. Dorsey was previously director of the organizational ethics and compliance curriculum at the University of St. Thomas law school in Minnesota and says she will continue to teach there. 

Adventist Healthcare, a nonprofit hospital system headquartered in Maryland, has promoted chief compliance officer Dwayne Leslie to general counsel. Leslie has been with Adventist 2019. He succeeds Ken DeStefano, who is retiring. Unclear who might succeed Leslie as chief compliance officer. 

And in a similar move, Teledyne Technologies (maker of digital imaging equipment) is promoting Melanie Cibik from associate general counsel, where she managed ethics and compliance issues, to general counsel and chief compliance officer. Teledyne also says George Bobb, a long-time executive there who served as CCO in the mid-2010s, has been promoted to president and chief operating officer.

Koch Industries has promoted Kristel Imeraj from audit manager to senior audit manager. Imeraj has been with Koch since 2020.

Christine DeSousa has a new job at Wellington-Altus, an investment advisory firm in Toronto, where she will be associate vice president of supervision to watch over the business activities of the firm’s investment advisers. DeSousa had previously worked in regulatory compliance and branch management at Richardson Wealth, Manulife Securities, and other Canadian firms. 

JCDecaux, an advertising company based in France, has promoted  Esthephany Felix Inoa from compliance counsel to head of compliance. (She is also the company’s data protection officer.) Inoa has been with JCD for four years. 

And in what is believed to be our first-ever Jobs Report update from Iceland, Barbara Albertsdottir has joined Íslandsbanki as head of transformation. She had previously worked at Deutsche Bank as global head of regulatory change.
