 Larry Candido and Lynne Johnston have been named Senior Directors at Treliant, expanding the firm’s team of compliance and risk management professionals. Each has decades of U.S. and international leadership experience at major banks and consultancies serving the financial services sector.

Larry has been a Director at Treliant since 2020 advising financial services clients on complex compliance and risk management initiatives. His career spans over 25 years, including roles as Chief Compliance Officer at Rabobank North America Wholesale; Compliance Director, U.S. & Global Compliance Strategy and Administration at Citibank; Managing Director, Head of Legal and Compliance at Eurohypo AG, New York Branch; and General Counsel at the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corp. (HSBC) U.S. Group. He was previously a practice leader at Guidehouse (formerly Navigant Consulting) and RGP Consulting, and he has played key roles in managing the legal, compliance, and finance functions at technology startups.

Prior to joining Treliant, Lynne’s 30-year career has included legal and compliance roles at global banks and broker-dealers, including Deputy Head of Compliance for Bank of China USA; Regional Head of Compliance for Commerzbank AG; Head of Anti-Money Laundering Compliance for RBC Capital Markets USA; and Regulatory Counsel and Global Head of Money Laundering Prevention for Lehman Brothers. Previously, she has worked in consulting roles supporting U.S. and international banks on a wide-range of compliance and regulatory matters, and served in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement.

“As former in-house industry practitioners, Treliant’s advisors bring practical compliance experience and leadership qualities to bear in their engagements with financial services clients,” said Treliant Senior Managing Director Grace Brasington. “Larry and Lynne embody this approach, having spent their careers leading compliance and risk management for some of the most prominent financial institutions.”

“Financial services companies compete on a continually changing landscape of banking laws and regulations,” Larry said. “I look forward to driving business success for our clients in this fast-paced and demanding environment.”

“The list of compliance challenges is long and growing, as companies must mount and sustain programs to control money laundering, manage third-party risk, and handle regulatory risk reporting—to name only a few,” Lynne said. “I’m excited to be joining Treliant’s team of experts across so many disciplines of compliance, risk management, and business strategy.
