Rudolph “Rudy” Green Appointed Vice President and
Chief Compliance Officer
The University of Miami has appointed Rudolph “Rudy” Hamilton Green to its newly created position of Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer, effective early January 2013.
Green, who has served as Director of University Compliance Services at the University of Texas at Austin since 2007, will be responsible for creating a robust compliance environment that can be recognized as best practice in research and academic medical center universities. At the University of Texas at Austin, he successfully led the institutional effort for compliance and ethics to become an integral part of the university’s structure and culture.
“We are fortunate to have attracted the talents of Rudy Green to this new position. Every research university in the country is operating within an increasingly complex regulatory and compliance environment,” said UM President Donna E. Shalala. “The rules that apply to our research activities, clinical operations, student services, and athletic programs are changing every day, and it is our responsibility to ensure that the University is compliant with the regulations in all aspects.”
Reporting to President Shalala and the Audit and Compliance Committee of the Board of Trustees, Green’s scope of responsibility and influence will span all compliance functions of the University, including but not limited to the Miller School of Medicine and Athletics. The breadth of responsibilities for this key post will include establishing a program to better manage institution-wide compliance with all state and federal laws, rules and regulations; requirements of applicable governing bodies; and the University’s established Standards of Conduct. Green will also provide senior leadership to the internal audit functions, including oversight of the University hotline, ensuring appropriate resolution of issues regarding compliance, and internal control allegations.
“One of the things I find most appealing about joining the staff at the University of Miami is having the opportunity to create something from scratch and having influence in substantially all the decisions associated with building a program from the ground floor,” said Green. “I am excitedly looking forward to working with President Shalala and her team.”
Green earned an M.B.A. and a J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin and a bachelor’s degree in administrative sciences from Yale University, where he was captain of the football team. He previously worked as an attorney at the law firm of Graves Dougherty, Hearon & Moody, handling business and real estate for its clients, and as general counsel for Prime Cable/Prime Management Group, working in the heavily regulated cable television industry.
He is an active member of his community, serving on the boards of Waller Creek Conservancy, St. Stephen’s Episcopal School, and the Austin Museum of Art, and as an adviser to numerous local civic and charitable organizations.
He and his wife Joyce have one son.
