    Global FCPA Compliance Practice Leader

    ACA Compliance Group (“ACA”) is a leading provider of risk management and technology solutions that focus on regulatory compliance, performance, financial crime, and cybersecurity. We partner with our clients to help them mitigate the regulatory, operational, and reputational risks inherent in their business functions. Our clients include leading global bank and insurance company-affiliated or standalone asset management groups, investment companies, broker-dealers, private fund managers, and commodity trading advisors.


    Position Objective

    As a part of ACA’s growth strategy, we are looking for a qualified candidate to build and lead a global practice focused on solutions designed to ensure compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (the “FCPA”).


    ACA is a global leader in regulatory compliance products and services. However, ACA does not currently have deep expertise in FCPA. The FCPA Practice Leader is expected to have the following responsibilities:

    • providing leadership to the new FCPA Practice;
    • driving product and business development for ACA’s FCPA Practice;
    • supporting ACA’s existing practices in business development efforts with respect to the FCPA Practice;
    • growing ACA’s in-house expertise on the FCPA and industry best practices, including through training of existing staff and recruitment of additional industry experts;
    • leading and executing projects involving FCPA compliance;
    • identifying opportunities for growth within ACA’s existing client base; and
    • developing new client relationships both within financial services and across other industries.


    The FCPA Practice Leader is also expected to have the following responsibilities:

    • build, monitor, and enhance new business development activities to support ACA’s sales growth plans;
    • develop, refine, and execute an ongoing sales and marketing strategy for the FCPA Practice;
    • generate new leads for the FCPA Practice, including the drafting and delivery of proposals;
    • own a subset of top FCPA clients and prospects and act as an expert resource for internal staff pursuing targets or working on Practice-related engagements;
    • attend internal and external conferences, events, seminars to increase overall networks and ACA awareness;
    • speak, or coordinate speaking, of relevant ACA experts, at internal and external events;
    • write, or organize and oversee the writing of, Practice-focused articles, white papers, and/or surveys to be published in industry journals or newsletters;
    • assist in media interactions as requested;
    • assist ACA business units with meeting and developing relationships with strategic partners and other third party referral sources;
    • lead all aspects of compliance program reviews (e.g., reviewing documents, conducting interviews, performing forensic testing, and drafting reports), including overseeing and reviewing the work of team members;
    • provide regulatory consulting advice and assistance services to clients and their affiliates as needed;
    • manage and support assigned client relationships, including addressing and/or ensuring that questions and needs have been addressed;
    • supervise, train, evaluate, oversee, and/or provide feedback to junior staff;
    • identify, manage and/or support ACA special projects and internal initiatives; and
    • perform other ad-hoc work/special projects as necessary to support ACA on various client and internal initiatives.



    Interested candidates should have extensive executive-level experience in roles focused on FCPA compliance including regulatory expertise, relationship management skills, and a history of project management. ACA prefers candidates with a consulting background and experience across industries. The candidate should also have a bachelor’s degree. Experience advising and/or managing software solution identification, implementation and optimization projects is a plus.

    Candidates should be entrepreneurial and innovative, be able to work independently, demonstrate strong organizational skills, work effectively as a team leader and team member, and proactively interact with a diverse group of clients. 

    Additional Qualifications Information

    • proven ability to influence and communicate effectively with senior client leadership;
    • proven ability to successfully close sales; and
    • willing to travel approximately 50 percent of the time on a regular basis.

    Compensation and Benefits

    Compensation will be competitive and commensurate with industry experience. It will include a base salary plus incentive-based commissions and may include a discretionary bonus. ACA also offers an excellent benefits package
