We have been engaged to identify a Business Risk Officer III (aka Financial Risk and Controls/SOX Manager) for a specialty bank that is the financial engine of Silicon Valley and innovation around the world. Ranked #9 on Forbes’ “Best Banks in America,” and one of the fasted growing companies in America with Asset size having doubled from $56B to $115B in two years!  This is the bank of choice for roughly 50% of venture-capital-based companies (and VC Firms) in the United States – and roughly half of innovation-based IPOs over the past two years.  They have a global presence and are actively expanding to innovations centers around the world.   This position person will work predominantly REMOTE, but needs to be located in/near the Charlotte (NC) Metro Area for periodic onsite meetings.

The Business Risk Officer III is a First Line of Defense SOX/ICFR readiness role.  This is a high visibility role with focus on the broader Finance organization (Accounting, Treasury, Procurement, FP&A, etc.).  You will work closely with the business to own and managed specific SOX cycles, including design, implementation, documentation, and self-testing.  You will build strong relationships with the business stakeholders and keep abreast of key changes that may impact IFCR.  You will also liaise with areas like ERM, Transformations Office, SLoD SOX, and Internal and External Audit.

The right candidate for this role will combine a very strong background in SOX/ICFR, with a passion for helping internal stakeholders.  You will be a self-starter and able to work independently – someone who anticipates issues/challenges and proactively works to identify solutions.  You will be agile and flexible, and able to function well in a fast-paced and dynamic environment.  You are highly collaborative and enjoys working with different stakeholders.
