Swift has hired Accuity’s Heather Lee as financial crime compliance product manager, a newly-created role.

She is now responsible for product strategy across Swift’s screening portfolio. “My role is to build bridges between the products within our portfolio, and help our customers protect against illicit financial flows,” Lee tells GTR.

She is based in London and reports to Nicolas Stuckens, Swift’s head of sanctions compliance services.

Lee was previously director of risk and compliance strategy at Accuity, a provider of compliance software, where she led the trade compliance team in launching the company’s dual-use goods screening engine. Before joining the firm in 2014, she was product manager at Reed Business Information.
