CLEVELAND, OH (March 13, 2018) – AML RightSource, national leader in anti-money laundering services and premier provider to the financial services sector, celebrates a period of exponential growth with the appointment of Mark A. Schlageter to the organization’s Board of Directors.
Schlageter’s celebrated career includes numerous senior leadership roles over his two decades with Thomson Reuters (New York, Dallas and London). His main focus has been driving the growth of governance, risk and compliance companies through innovation and client centricity. Schlageter’s understanding of global markets and corresponding regulation and compliance challenges has helped numerous financial institutions around the globe achieve optimal results.
Schlageter earned his BA degree from Cornell University. Additionally, he holds graduate degrees in law and international management. Schlageter is licensed to practice law in Colorado and D.C. and is a member of the Colorado and D.C. American and International Bar Associations. His thought leadership has been cited via Forbes, the Financial Times, China National Television and the Aspen Ideas Festival.
“Mark’s appointment continues a legacy of strong leadership for AML - one that we know will be informed by his category-leading experience and global perspective,” says AML RightSource CEO Frank Ewing. “As we continue to support the organization’s extraordinary growth, I am eager to work with Mark in ensuring we delivery exceptional results for each customer.”
That customer base expanded drastically in 2017, precipitating a need for AML to more than double staff and open a third facility. These results are a continuation of quarter-over-quarter growth – results that the company expects to build upon throughout the remainder of 2018 and beyond.
“I am extremely excited to join the board of AML RightSource,” says Schlageter. “The company’s innovative approach to providing high quality services and working complementarily with their customers will drive sustainable rapid growth. I look forward to working with the leadership team to help even more customers address their compliance needs.”
