William Fox

Bank of America (BoA) made William Fox senior compliance executive for financial crimes in its compliance risk management division. He joins from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) in Washington, DC, where he was director for two years.

Before joining FinCEN, Fox held legal posts at the Treasury department and also worked at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Charles Bowman, principal compliance executive at Charlotte, NC-based BoA, says: "As his first assignment, I am asking him to take an enterprise-wide view across the organisation, working closely with audit, legal, compliance risk management and corporate security to ensure we have one of the strongest compliance programs in the industry."

"He joins us from Deloitte, where he was a partner in their financial services regulatory practice. He comes with a wealth of experience gained both from advising financial institutions on regulatory matters and from periods spent on secondment with the FSA and regulated firms," he says.
