Georgia United Credit Union adds experienced compliance leader to risk management team

Georgia United Credit Union is pleased to announce the addition of Linda Landis as its new vice president of compliance/BSA. Landis, who brings a wealth of compliance knowledge and experience with her to the organization, joined Georgia United on December 5.

In her new role, she will oversee regulatory compliance and BSA (Bank Secrecy Act) regulation, both part of Georgia United’s risk management business unit.

“We are very excited to add Linda to our extraordinary team as we continue to evolve and grow,” said Sophia Rollins, Georgia United’s senior vice president of risk management. In addition to compliance and BSA functions, Georgia United’s risk management unit also includes fraud, quality assurance, internal audit, vendor management and business continuity.

For ten years Landis served as first vice president enterprise compliance at Kinecta Federal Credit Union, a Manhattan Beach, Calif.-based credit union with assets of $6.6 billion. Prior to that, she worked for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues as a manager of chapters and electronic education and regulatory consultant.

She is also a certified Credit Union Development Educator (CUDE). Landis earned a bachelor’s degree in organizational management and a master’s degree in leadership and management from University of La Verne.

Traveling from the West Coast to Georgia is the latest leg of Landis’ personal and professional journey, which includes sailing across the globe with her husband while on recent sabbatical.

“Although absent from the corporate experience for a little while, I have not been absent from keeping up on regulatory changes in the financial industry,” said Landis. “I am delighted and honored to lead Georgia United’s compliance initiatives while providing the highest level of service that our members have come to expect from the state’s top credit union.”
