Christine Stallmann Named University’s Chief Compliance Officer
Christine Stallmann has been named the University’s chief compliance officer. The position, which will report directly to Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Brett Padgett in the Division of Business, Finance and Administrative Services, is a key component of the University’s coordinated risk assurance efforts. Stallmann is responsible for oversight and coordination of the University’s compliance program.
She brings nearly 30 years of professional experience in compliance, privacy, policy development, insurance, environmental health and safety, and risk management to Syracuse. She led compliance and risk services at Cornell University for over 15 years, and most recently held the position of chief compliance and privacy officer at the institution.
In her new role, Stallmann will work in close coordination with the University’s internal audit and enterprise risk management teams to provide the University with a comprehensive risk assurance program. She will be tasked with assessing the University’s current institutional compliance initiatives and will lead the establishment of a comprehensive and enterprise-wide compliance program.
As chief compliance officer, Stallmann will be responsible for ensuring University compliance with federal and state laws and regulations, including research compliance, data security, data privacy, the Clery Act, human resource compliance obligations and more. She will engage regularly with the Chancellor, the executive team and the Audit and Risk Committee of the Board of Trustees to advance emerging initiatives in the risk and compliance space.
“I am excited to embark on this new journey with a talented team and eager to listen, develop and contribute in my new role to support the members of this community,” says Stallmann. “Every person I have met at Syracuse shares a common energy to advance the institution, and that’s been without exception.”
Stallmann received a bachelor’s degree in safety science from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a master’s degree in hazardous waste and management from Southern Methodist University. She holds certificates from Carnegie Mellon University and the Harvard Kennedy School of Business. Stallmann is married, has two adult children and two dogs, and enjoys the outdoors, travel, theatre and music festivals. She and her husband are excited to join the Syracuse community.
Stallmann’s new position was effective on Sept. 11.
