Risk and compliance solutions provider Exiger announced the appointment of Jason Holt as managing director and EMEA regional leader.

Holt, who brings a wealth of experience in financial crime compliance (FCC), has spent most of his 25-year career managing FCC functions at some of the world’s largest financial institutions, including Bank of America Merrill Lynch, JPMorgan Chase, and Barclays.

Under Holt’s leadership, Exiger plans to expand its impact in the EMEA region, focusing on how financial institutions and corporations achieve a sustainable compliance environment through tech-enabled solutions.

Holt, who will be based in London, is stepping into a role most recently held by Lisa Osofsky, who was named director of the U.K.’s Serious Fraud Office last June.
