Key EF’s Darnow Receives Elite Anti-Money Laundering Certification

Key Equipment Finance announced that Tamara Darnow recently earned the Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists – Audit (CAMS-Audit) credential from the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS). Darnow is director of compliance and operational risk at Key Equipment Finance.

The CAMS-Audit designation is an advanced-level certification and is the first of its kind in the AML and financial crime prevention community. CAMS-Audit equips mid-level and senior management professionals with the essential knowledge that reinforces internal controls and enhances one’s ability to meet regulatory expectations.

“We have made a concerted effort to ensure that we have industry-leading compliance standards in place at Key Equipment Finance, and having a director of compliance with CAMS-Audit certification helps reinforce that commitment,” said Adam Warner, president of Key Equipment Finance. “The CAMS-Audit certification process is a rigorous one, and I am proud of the work Tamara put in to earn this designation.”

In order to become CAMS-Audit certified, candidates must first become a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS). Once accepted into the program, students study, research, and attend pre-class webinars; participate in a three-day live program consisting of lecture, discussion, and group exercises; and finally author a white paper on an approved topic related to the advanced certification.

“Becoming CAMS-Audit certified is a major accomplishment and I applaud the commitment and hard work from the graduates,” says John J. Byrne, CAMS, executive vice president at ACAMS. “Those who receive an advanced certification equip themselves with additional expertise and become an invaluable asset to their institution, firm or agency.”

CAMS-Audit was developed by ACAMS, with contribution from AML and financial crime prevention subject matter experts.
