Washington, DC - July 30, 2019 - Treliant is pleased to announce three leadership promotions:

  • Ross Marrazzo has been named Managing Partner, overseeing both the firm’s Global Financial Crimes Compliance area and its Corporate and Regulatory Compliance area;
  • Constandino “Dino” Papagiannis has been appointed Managing Director in the Global Financial Crimes Compliance area; and
  • Lynn W. Woosley has been named Senior Director, leading its Fair and Responsible Banking area.

Ross Marrazzo has over 35 years of domestic and international experience in the design, oversight, and assessment of corporate and regulatory compliance associated with Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), economic sanctions, fraud programs, and internal controls. Before joining Treliant in 2015, he held senior leadership positions in a number of financial institutions, worked at two law firms, and the New York State Securities Division, in capacities including chief compliance officer, operational risk head, compliance audit executive, and securities regulator.

“Ross’ contributions include driving the success of our Global Financial Crimes Compliance team, supporting our clients, and influencing our firm’s strategic vision,” said Treliant Chief Executive Officer B. Scott Fisher. “I look forward to working closely with Ross on our firm’s growth agenda.”

Dino Papagiannis specializes in handling complex matters involving regulatory and financial crimes compliance, including advising on formal and informal enforcement actions. He joined Treliant in 2016 from GE Capital, where he was a managing director and audit executive responsible for oversight of global compliance and financial crimes compliance. He is a lawyer who has accumulated hands-on experience in AML/BSA and Office of Foreign Assets Control risk management programs over a 25-year compliance career in financial institutions, consulting firms, and state and federal agencies.

“Dino has helped drive our work on financial crimes risk management to give clients operational confidence amid unprecedented challenges by money launderers, terrorist finance networks, and other bad actors,” said Treliant Managing Partner Ross Marrazzo. “His elevation to Managing Director not only recognizes his contributions to the firm but also positions him to take his strategic impact to a new level.”

Lynn Woosley is a seasoned executive with extensive risk management experience in regulatory compliance, consumer and commercial credit risk, credit and compliance risk modeling, model governance, regulatory change management, acquisition due diligence, and operational risk in both financial services and regulatory environments. Before joining Treliant in 2017, Lynn had previously held leadership positions including Senior Vice President and Fair and Responsible Banking Officer; Group Vice President for Wholesale Transaction Modeling; and First Vice President for Portfolio Management within the corporate risk management division of a Top 10 bank. She also served as Senior Examiner and Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. 

“Lynn has helped our clients strategically harness technology as an enabler of fair lending and compliance, as each regulatory ruling has raised the bar on data collection, reporting, and disclosure,” said Treliant Chief Executive Officer B. Scott Fisher. “We are pleased to recognize her leadership of our Fair and Responsible Banking services area.”
