Be a part of a company committed to helping Americans relieve the pressure of unsecured debt; a company that plays to win with a commitment to growth; and a company committed to being a great place to work for the entire Strategic Family.
Strategic Financial Solutions seeks an experienced Chief Compliance Officer and General Counsel (CCO-GC) to join our executive team to provide leadership, management and administration for the entire legal and compliance functions that support our business.
Strategic Financial Solutions has two main business lines: consumer debt relief and alternative consumer lending.
Managing a team of two compliance attorneys, three affiliated consumer debt attorneys and call quality and complaint tracking analysts, the CCO-GC will hit the ground running and be required to plan, manage and develop the team to support the exceptional growth of our business. With previous compliance and regulator experience in consumer debt markets, our new GC-CCO will help to hold us to the highest standards and stay ahead of any regulatory shifts.
Our problem-solving culture works hard to get results. The General Counsel / Compliance officer role will be a key ingredient to our day-to-day and long-term success. This position will report directly to our CEO who shares a passion for diving into the details as well as stepping back out of the business to be strategic. Our new CCO-GC will become part of our Strategy Team and involved in major company decisions and strategic planning. There is no better opportunity if you love to be a decision-making executive in an established company that is still in high growth mode.
Regulatory requirements span a broad range of agencies including state-level banking and insurance regulators, FDIC, OCC, FTC and the CFPB. The CCO-GC will be responsible for managing the legal functions of the debt resolution and alternative consumer lending . As a result, the CCO-GC will manage our auditing process for consumer lending compliance and BSA/AML. Strategically, the CCO-GC will develop month, quarter, annual and long-term legal and compliance plans that will help us win and succeed. As the senior leader of a key shared resource, the CCO-GC will be a service provider to the rest of the organization and recognize that quality internal outcomes lead to client satisfaction and continued growth and profitability. The CCO-GC is expected to partner with key internal resources to execute on new initiatives to expand current capabilities and/or streamline existing processes.
