Nearly 1,800 bankers and compliance experts convened in Orlando today for ABA’s annual Regulatory Compliance Conference. Mary Clouthier (pictured), senior vice president and director of enterprise compliance programs for Key Bank, received the Distinguished Service Award during the conference’s opening session last night. The award, first presented in 1995, recognizes outstanding leadership, initiative and accomplishment in banking regulatory compliance management.
An active participant in ABA compliance activities for many years, Clouthier has authored several articles for ABA Bank Compliance magazine, served on various ABA committees, taught at the ABA Compliance School and routinely spoken at the RCC and other national events. Clouthier began her career as a bank examiner with the FDIC, moving on to positions with the Federal Reserve in Philadelphia and Dallas before joining the banking industry as a compliance executive.
The four-day Regulatory Compliance Conference, which is a compliance immersion experience for bank compliance officers, auditors, legal counsel and bank senior management, kicked off with a panel on current hot topics in bank compliance. Throughout the week, attendees will hear keynote presentations from former Comptroller of the Currency Gene Ludwig, IBM Watson manager Alistair Rennie, Princeton University ethicist David Miller and consultant and author Kristy Grant Hart. Bankers will also hear a briefing on Wednesday by ABA EVP James Ballentine, who will provide a legislative update and discuss what the Trump administration means for compliance.
