CNA, one of the largest US commercial insurers, has hired Garrett Williams as senior vice president and chief compliance officer.

In his new role, Williams is responsible for the overall strategic leadership and direction of CNA’s enterprise compliance group. He reports to Scott Weber, executive vice president and general counsel.

CNA promoted Weber to the role of general counsel this time last year. He succeeded Jon Kantor, who had announced his retirement.

Williams joined CNA having spent 20 years with State Farm in varying counsel roles. Most recently, he served as leader of State Farm’s enterprise compliance and ethics department, anti-money laundering/Office of Foreign Assets Control officer and chief privacy officer. He was also responsible for partnering with State Farm’s chief information security officer to establish information security and privacy governance.

‘Garrett’s industry experience, compliance expertise and strong ethical perspective will strengthen CNA’s compliance programs and ensure CNA maintains a proactive and comprehensive approach to compliance,’ Weber says in a statement.
