Director, Compliance USAA - Tampa, FL, United States


Location: Tampa, FL

Company Profile:
Since 1922, USAA has served the military and their families. We were here yesterday and we'll be here tomorrow.For more than 85 years, USAA has been committed to service, loyalty, honesty and integrity. It's a strong culture that reflects the character of those we serve. In 1922, when 25 Army officers met in San Antonio and decided to insure each other's vehicles, they could not have imagined that their tiny organization would one day serve 6.4 million members and become the only fully integrated financial services company in America. The mission of the association is to facilitate the financial security of its members, associates, and their families through provision of a full range of highly competitive financial products and services; in so doing, USAA seeks to be the provider of choice for the military community.
