Can Compliance officer and corporate controller functions be together in one job position?

Alejandro Lopez's Profile

We curently have both positions and we are thinking to make it one single position reproting to the CFO. Do you see any conflict of interests?

Depends on what specific duties you are defining under "compliance".

There is no conflict of interest, but ideally they should be separate. Those are two big roles likely with little overlap and it's probably better that each person focus on his area of expertise.
