Steve Koslow, a CUNA Mutual senior vice president, will take the helm of a board comprising chief compliance and ethics officers of CEFLI’s member companies and representatives of its affiliate membership organizations.

At CUNA Mutual, Koslow leads employees responsible for ensuring compliance with regulatory market conduct requirements as well as assessing compliance risk, monitoring compliance work and maintaining governance over the company’s documented policies, procedure and standards.
A Northwestern University law school graduate, Koslow joined CUNA Mutual Group in 2007 after working as a director in the governance, risk and compliance group at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in Chicago.
He has published articles in several industry publications and is a frequent conference speaker, CUNA Mutual said.
