As a BSA/AML/OFAC Consumer Compliance Assistant Director, Raphael Impellizzeri brings his many years of experience as a public servant and private consultant to Chartwell Compliance.
Prior to joining Chartwell, Raphael spent 20 years in the public sector as a State Examiner with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services where he specialized in unlicensed investigations and later with the Florida Office of Financial Regulations where he specialized in Consumer Lending, AML and OFAC regulations, Mortgage Brokerage, Lending and Servicing, Securities, and Risk Compliance before joining FinCEN as a Compliance Specialist.
