Woodland Hills, CA (September 8, 2020)– CNM LLP, a technical advisory firm headquartered in Los Angeles, today announced that Craig Spielmann has joined the firm as Risk Intelligence Leader. Spielmann brings more than 35 years of experience leading risk functions and developing innovative risk management solutions for several large organizations, including First Data, Royal Bank of Scotland, and JP Morgan Chase.

Spielmann has been at the forefront of designing advanced techniques to proactively identity and manage risk through effective, cost-efficient methods. While serving as Head of IT Risk at JP Morgan, Spielmann created and commercialized “Horizon,” one of the first holistic Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) solutions. Spielmann was also an inventor for U.S. Patent “Method & System for Managing Risk,” which was used by JP Morgan, The Federal Reserve, Bank of China, Merrill Lynch and several other major global organizations to manage their operational risk programs.

“Craig’s track record of innovation is a great fit with CNM’s mission to provide high value advisory services and solutions combining professional capabilities with hands on support,” said Sanjay Sheth, Partner, CNM LLP. “His wealth of practical knowledge and experience from his time at some of the top financial and fintech institutions in the world will be a highly valuable asset to our clients and internal teams.”

Spielmann’s roles within the e-commerce and Fintech industries included his position of Global Head of Enterprise Risk Management Strategy for First Data, where he designed and implemented several critical ERM framework components and ran board level risk self-assessments on their top risks. In addition, he led GRC development and analytic reporting. Previously, Spielmann held managing director level positions at RBS as Head of Operational Risk-Americas and Global Head of ORM Systems & Analytics. Most recently, he has been advising consulting firms, equity research teams and clients on ERM/ORM Frameworks and Critical Board Assessments, GRC Solutions, Risk Based Executive Compensation and E-commerce practices.

Spielmann’s colleague while at RBS, Kate Raymond, now Managing Director at CNM’s New York office, said, “Craig’s approach strikes the right balance of people and business focus. I’ve seen him collaborate with senior business managers to successfully evolve risk management into a critical business discipline.”

As an alumnus, Spielmann has championed risk management to young adults for the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club Organization, where he conducted risk education classes and highlighted career opportunities.

Spielmann is headquartered in the firm’s Los Angeles office and will work with the global team to offer clients top tier advisory services across the risk spectrum.
