Clarien recruits former FBI agent

A former FBI Special Agent previously assigned to the US Joint Terrorism Task Force has been appointed chief compliance officer of Clarien Bank Ltd.

Top gun Henry Komansky has more recently served as head of analysis at the Bermuda Financial Intelligence Agency, as well as an associate attorney at law firm Cox Hallett Wilkinson in Bermuda, where he served as compliance officer and specialised in corporate law and litigation.

At the bank, he will be responsible for developing, reviewing and monitoring the firm's compliance activities to ensure adherence to internal compliance policies, regulatory requirements, Bermuda and international law as they have an impact on Clarien Bank Ltd and its subsidiaries in fulfilling its regulatory responsibilities.

He reports to chief legal officer Mark Pettingill, who said: “Henry is an internationally respected compliance expert whose extensive multi-jurisdictional legal expertise and experience across a wide variety of regulated sectors will significantly support our continued efforts to grow both our domestic and international business.

“His appointment will help ensure business management accountability for a framework which meets complex internal and statutory requirements for the identification, management, monitoring and reporting of compliance risks and issues.”

As an FBI Special Agent in Texas from 2002 to 2005, Mr Komansky was assigned to the multi-agency Joint Terrorism Task Force where he was cited for exceptional service during the PENTBOMB 9/11 investigation in Washington.

Mr Komansky earned a Juris Doctor from Rutgers School of Law in 1998, a Masters in Environmental Law (MELP) from Vermont Law School in 1995, and a Bachelor of Arts and Politics from Ursinus College in 1992.
