A mid-sized international New York City-based brokerage firm seeks a Chief Compliance Officer. The company is involved with institutional brokerage, wealth management and investment banking. The Chief Compliance Officer will be responsible for the day-to-day administration of the Firm’s compliance program.  

I’ve spoken with the heads of the firm and they are smart, nice, friendly and motivated people. They’ve been doing this work for decades. It’s a nice, no-jerks-allowed environment.
