Taylor Capital Group (TAYC) in Chicago has hired a new chief compliance officer for Cole Taylor Bank.

Tamina O'Neill joined the $5.8 billion-asset company earlier this year, it announced Thursday. She reports to Randall Conte, chief financial and operating officer.

A Cole Taylor spokesman declined to say who previously held the position.

O'Neill joined Cole Taylor from Private Bank and Trust Co., also in Chicago, where she was managing director and senior risk officer. She has also worked in the compliance departments at Bank of America (BAC) and LaSalle Bank.

"Compliance is a critical strategic and operational part of our organization," Conte said in a news release. O'Neill's "experience and expertise make her the perfect person for this position, and I couldn't be more gratified that she's joined us."
