Joot Expands Team and Adds Broker-Dealer Compliance Services

As we continue to enhance our SaaS-based platform for automating compliance, we are also building out our services team. Today, another industry veteran joins Joot. John Williams, Director of Compliance Services, brings nearly three decades of regulatory compliance experience to Joot, with the last 14 as a chief compliance officer for a Broker-Dealer / RIA. He also has expertise in international operations, business continuity planning, cybersecurity and banking.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have John on board,” says Bo Howell, Co-founder and CEO of Joot. “Not only does John bring a wealth of experience that will serve our clients well, his expertise also rounds out the team. From investment advisers to broker-dealers to funds, we now have experienced practitioners that cover the entire range. We can advise and help on compliance matters for all entities.”

For John’s part, his desire to help more people is what made Joot appealing. “With Joot, I found an opportunity to apply my expertise to help more firms all while working with other experienced professionals that share my goals and interests,” says John. “Compliance continually evolves and I’m looking forward to helping clients navigate through the latest wave of changes as well as whatever comes next.”

John will work closely with Bo, Cynthia Custer and Charles Black to use Joot’s user-friendly, smart technology to provide comprehensive service to our clients.
