The relationship between project management and compliance management can sometimes be contentious, but my experience working with Bob Flores at the helm was positive, synergistic, and productive. Bob brings vision and insight to the role of project manager, and was able to utilize his in-depth knowledge of banking, BSA/AML, fraud detection, and regulatory compliance to assess what could and should be done.
I have known Bob to be forward-thinking while still being pragmatic, and is able to understand the technical challenges faced by the banking industry, while still pushing to meet the needs of the regulatory environment. Bob’s assessments of compliance needs were objective and accurate, and his documentation and analyses were clear and concise.
Bob is a flexible and innovative thinker, as capable working in teams within his company as he is working as a single contributor and as a partner with his clients. He's a supportive colleague, always willing to assist others in the achievement of their goals regardless of whether or not he gets the "glory" for his contribution. He is able to work at both strategic and tactical levels and communicate clearly with line level as well as C level executives. He has the ability to pursue both company goals and client goals to achieve the best result for each entity. Bob has also demonstrated a high level of personal integrity and strong moral fiber, so valued in the risk management field.
Bob is an outstanding professional who is creative at developing "out of the box" and well-crafted BSA/AML compliance solutions to meet client needs. He is a proactive manager with great attention to detail on projects from start to finish, often going above and beyond and delivers on time. I highly recommend Bob and would look forward to working with him again.
