Gateway First Bank, one of the ten largest banks in Oklahoma and one of the largest mortgage bank operations in the United States, announced the appointment of Tiffany Sizemore as its Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Officer.
In this role, Sizemore is responsible for the development, implementation and enforcement of Gateway’s BSA compliance program and coordination with state and federal regulators on these matters.
“We are happy to welcome Tiffany join the team. She has a strong knowledge of banking laws, regulations and operations relative to the Bank Secrecy Act, anti-money laundering measures and related matters,” said Scott Gesell, Chief Administrative Officer of Gateway. “Her strong commitment to ethics and familiarity with regulatory and operational activities make Tiffany a strong asset to the team. We look forward to working with her.”
Before joining the Oklahoma-based Gateway, Sizemore was Vice President of BSA and fraud officer with another bank in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area, where she oversaw the corporate-wide BSA program and conducted annual BSA training for bank staff and the board of directors. She is a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) and earned a bachelor’s degree in Finance from Oklahoma State University.
“I am excited to join the Gateway team at such an exciting time of transition,” Sizemore said. “Gateway strives to be an industry leader and has experienced a long tradition of success. I look forward to overseeing the bank’s compliance initiatives as Gateway continues to grow and strive for excellence.”
