California-based ComplianceEase, a provider of automated compliance solutions for the financial services industry, announced the appointment of Michael Jackman as CEO. He will replace Co-Founder and current CEO of ComplianceEase, Anita Kwan, who is retiring. The company also announced that John Vong, ComplianceEase’s other Co-Founder, has been named Executive
Chairman of the board. In this role, he will be responsible for setting the company’s overall vision and strategy, as well as expanding partnerships, broadening government outreach and establishing ComplianceEase as a leader in GRC technology.
A veteran technologist, Jackman was part of the team at TRW Real Estate that developed the first software for the online ordering of title, tax, appraisal, and credit services: a technology that was integral to the growth of First American and later, CoreLogic. Over the course of his 30-plus year career, Jackman held Division President positions at HNC Software (now part of Fair Isaac) and Fiserv’s LOS division. He was also CIO of Accredited Home Lenders and President and CEO of INTERLINQ Software, which was acquired by Harland Financial Solutions, then D+H Financial Technologies and is now part of Finastra.
“Michael is one of our industry’s true visionaries and a leader who has great credibility in the marketplace. I’m looking forward to working with him to help our clients and industry partners as
they transition to the coming digital future,” Vong said.
The company said that Jackman was not new to ComplianceEase. In 2006, he was the acting-CTO of ComplianceEase, as the company searched for a permanent CTO. Since 2005, he has been a member of ComplianceEase’s board of advisors.
