ComplianceEase, a provider of automated compliance solutions to the financial services industry, announced today that its Board of Directors has appointed Michael Jackman as chief executive officer. Jackman replaces Anita Kwan, co-founder and chief executive officer, who is retiring.
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 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: 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.
Jackman is 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.
Commenting on the transition, John Vong said, “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.”
