David Narro, Senior Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Specialist, recently earned his Certified Anti Money-Laundering Specialist (CAMS) designation.
David began his career at Fairfield County Bank seven years ago as a teller before transferring to the Customer Care Center. He has spent the last five years in Risk Management, most recently being promoted to Senior BSA Specialist. As Senior BSA Specialist, his responsibilities include monitoring high-risk transactions and accounts, making recommendations to the BSA Officer and Senior Risk Management as well as maintaining proficient knowledge of the rules and regulations around the Bank Secrecy Act, USA Patriot Act and OFAC.
“David has worked tirelessly over the years to help protect Fairfield County Bank and its clients,” said Drew Cunningham, Assistant Vice President and BSA Officer of Fairfield County Bank. “Earning his CAMS credential will further his ability to keep the Bank ahead of money laundering schemes.”
The Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) organization defines the CAMS certification as being “recognized as the gold standard in Anti Money Laundering certification by institutions, governments, and regulators worldwide. In recent years, financial crime has hit the headlines, and the spotlight is firmly on compliance. CAMS is an established global qualification that outlines the key principles of money laundering and how to prevent it.”
David currently resides in Ridgefield with his wife. In his free time, he enjoys playing amateur soccer in leagues across the state and volunteering in the greater Ridgefield area. He is a yearly volunteer at the Ridgefield Playhouse’s Arts in Education program, which allows Title 1 schools to attend the program free of charge. He also participates in the Junior Achievement of Fairfield County’s “JA in a Day” program, educating students in a classroom setting about work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship.
