Arpin Group has hired Jerry Munoz as regulatory compliance manager.
In his role, Munoz will be responsible for planning, implementing, managing and facilitating Arpin’s regulatory compliance program for both domestic and international employees, agents and other supply chain partners.
“Jerry joins us from the highly-regulated financial services industry where compliance was a major part of everyday corporate culture,” said Marco Uriati, chief legal officer and COO of Arpin Group. “He has an extensive background in IT and finance, which combined with many years of project management experience at Textron, provides a solid foundation for managing the development and implementation of Arpin’s new compliance education, training and monitoring programs. We are thrilled to have him on our team.”
From a global standpoint, anti-bribery, corruption and data security are among the most important compliance-related topics in the international marketplace.
“Nobody within our industry is immune to these risks, and the penalties and fees for non-compliance can be severe,” said Munoz. “It is my job to manage and eliminate these risks, and keep Arpin compliant with all applicable regulations. As foreign governments across the globe continue to adopt new anti-bribery and corruption regulations, the Arpin management team has made a renewed commitment and investment to our compliance program and will continue to make this a top priority. It is my belief that Arpin will stay ahead of the compliance curve and by doing so, we will continue to differentiate ourselves from the competition. We recognize this and so do our closest partners.”
In September, Arpin formed a new division dedicated to managing all aspects of the company’s global regulatory compliance program, reporting directly to Uriati. The division’s mission is to ensure that all Arpin supply chain partners are properly vetted and monitored to mitigate risk and ensure compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements. Arpin Group contracted Dow Jones Risk and Compliance to enhance its anti-bribery, anti-corruption and third-party due diligence compliance screening and monitoring program as the international household goods mover grows its global supply chain.
Before joining Arpin, Munoz spent seven years in the financial services industry working primarily as a registered investment professional for Eagle Strategies/New York Life and Oceanstate Financial Services. As a FINRA broker and sales professional, he provided financial planning services to individuals and businesses. Previously, he worked for Textron Financial Corporation for 10 years as a project manager and Six Sigma professional, running projects of various magnitudes and scope.
Munoz holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Bryant University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Rhode Island. He currently resides in Attleboro, Massachusetts.
