In his new role at ACA as a partner and global chief services officer, di Florio will marshal his regulatory experience in fulfilling his responsibilities that include oversight, management and strategic growth of ACA’s global regulatory compliance; cybersecurity and risk; anti-money laundering and financial crimes; and performance practices.
