Marie Blake appointed as Chief Compliance Officer for BankUnited

The former Regions Financial Corp. VP joins the Florida-based financial institution

In 2002, SEC commissioner Cynthia Glassman called upon companies to take more corporate responsibility. Since then, many companies – especially ones specializing in healthcare and financial services – have taken this directive seriously, resulting in new prominence for the role of the chief compliance officer.

CCOs perform an important role in day-to-day and long-term operations of financial firms, so finding the right person for the job is vital. Florida-based BankUnited thinks it has found such an individual in Marie Blake, who has been hired in the role of executive vice president and chief compliance officer.
