TCA Compliance has expanded its staff in response to greater demand for its BSA/AML consulting services.
Jennifer Rura CAMS, CCBP, recently joined Oak Brook, Ill.-based TCA as a BSA Associate.
“We are seeing examiners more consistently expect model validations of automated monitoring systems,” comments Brian Crow, TCA’s Managing Partner/Co-President, who leads TCA’s seven-person BSA/AML team. “I am excited to add systems expertise to our team of BSA/AML professionals.”
Rura, a 27-year veteran of the banking industry, has built an exceptional career focused on fraud prevention and BSA.
Most recently, she was a vice president and BSA officer for an Illinois bank where she designed, implemented, and directed all aspects of the bank’s BSA/AML/OFAC programs.
Rura’s responsibilities included managing policies, procedures, risk assessments, training, CTR reporting, SAR reporting, high-risk customer reviews, training, and managing regulatory exams and audits.
She also has hands-on experience in choosing and implementing AML software and converting banks to new systems.
“BSA continues to evolve, and Jennifer has worked with institutions of varying sizes and complexities and has navigated them through the challenges of regulatory scrutiny,” Crow adds.
