Appointment of new Executive Secretary

The Wolfsberg Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Alan Ketley as its new Executive Secretary, effective October 1st.

Alan has been a significant supporter of the Group’s work over many years. His long career in financial services has included senior positions in AML compliance in HSBC, JPMorgan, Société Générale, and most recently MUFG. Alan has been active with Wolfsberg projects during most of his compliance career, including as the Co-Chair of the Correspondent Banking Due Diligence Questionnaire (CBDDQ) Steering Committee since its launch in 2017.

The Group would like to extend its sincere gratitude to Tracy Paradise for her invaluable contribution to its development.

“On behalf of Wolfsberg Group members, and the many people who have contributed to its work since it was brought together 21 years ago, it’s an honour for us as the current Co-Chairs to thank Tracy for the great contribution she has made as Executive Secretary to the Group and to the fight against financial crime. She has taken forward that work alongside senior and full-time positions within member financial institutions, drawing on her evenings, weekends and leave days and has had a great eye for bringing talent and energy out from the membership as new issues, challenges and opportunities to improve arose,” said Bill Fox and David Howes.
