Ryan Hodge is the financial intelligence unit (FIU) director for Dwolla, a burgeoning payment network company. In this role, he built the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) programs in a fast-paced regulatory environment, and also integrated fraud and BSA into a single team. Previously, he served as the BSA and OFAC officer for Chevron Federal Credit Union (CFCU), a federal credit union with over $2.5 billion in assets. While at CFCU, Hodge implemented the first companywide fraud program.
Having started his financial services career in 2001, he watched firsthand how the USA PATRIOT Act and an increased focus on the BSA has shaped the industry. During that time, Hodge gleaned perspective and expertise in a variety of roles focused on fraud, anti-money laundering (AML) and sanctions, within a range of institution types and sizes—from Fortune 500 banks to credit unions and FinTech startups.
Hodge has received his Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) certification and graduated from the inaugural class for ACAMS’ advanced certification, CAMS-Audit.
