Compliance Jobs Report: June 14

We have a somewhat abbreviated Compliance Jobs Report this week since Radical Compliance is on vacation, but still lots of news: a new gig for the former CCO at Google; other appointments at Rogers Communications, Bristol Myers Squibb, and elsewhere; and job leads in energy trading, biotech, and motorcycle purchases. Plus our Meme of the Week!

Always remember that we need your help to make the Report work, so send me some news! You can easily find updates from your LinkedIn contacts by visiting the My Network tab on your own profile and then checking the Stay in Touch option at the top of that page. 

We also take any other gossip you might have, even confidentially. If you have a tip to pass along, email me at [email protected] or find me on LinkedIn.

Cook Children’s Healthcare System, a hospital system based in Texas, has promoted Diego Mendez from corporate compliance privacy analyst to senior compliance privacy analyst.
