AML RightSource names anti-money laundering expert John Byrne as vice chairman

Cleveland's AML RightSource has announced the naming of John Byrne to vice chairman.

 

In the expanded role, Byrne, who joined AML — which is a subsidiary wholly owned by Gabriel Partners — in November when he was appointed to the firm's board of directors, will play a "significant role in strategic planning, business development, organizational design, and employee training and development," according to a news release.

 

"It is a tremendous opportunity to support AML RightSource in enhancing and assisting the (anti-money laundering) profession in responding to evolving global challenges," Byrne said in a statement. "We will continue to serve the AML community and are dedicated to preventing and reporting those that use the financial system to prey on society."

 

Byrne most recently served as president at Condor Consulting LLC in Washington, D.C. He will continue to serve as a senior adviser to the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) advisory board, where he previously served as executive vice president.

 

Byrne has also worked at Bank of America as a global regulatory relations executive and with the American Bankers Association as the first director of its compliance center.

 

The expanded work for Byrne at AML comes several months after the August firm's acquisition by New York private equity firm Clarion Capital Partners. Terms of that acquisition were not disclosed, though Clarion says it typically focuses on equity investments in the range of $15 million to $50 million.

 

Frank Ewing was named CEO of the company at that time, replacing then-CEO Chris Brauser, who founded Gabriel Partners/AML in 2004.

 

"John is a thought leader in the field of anti-money laundering, and we expect his deeper partnership and engagement with AML RightSource will allow our clients to improve their AML/BSA outcomes and aid the financial industry to combat the threat of financial crime," said Ewing in a statement. "Expanding our relationship with John was a logical progression. His deep industry knowledge and understanding will benefit both our company and our customers."

 

AML says it has nearly 600 AML/BSA professionals and additional facilities in Hudson and Phoenix.
