Chesapeake Compliance Consultants, LLC is owned & operated by Neil Goldstein and based in Baltimore, Maryland. With over 25 years experience in owning and operating a small chain of financial service centers, Neil became credentialed as a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) in 2008. Since that time, Neil has been servicing the regulatory compliance needs of check cashers and other Money Service Businesses.
Hands-on experience as an operator of financial service centers and as a Compliance Officer provides Neil a unique perspective for serving both the small ‘Mom & Pop’ style MSB, as well as larger MSB businesses. Neil is a product of the MSB industry, not the banking or financial regulation industries from which many AML consultants have their experience. That background, along with his knowledge of the world of AML regulations & requirements, make him uniquely suited to devise scalable AML solutions to satisfy your AML obligations and minimize the burden such obligations pose to the day-to-day operations of your business.
Neil is a graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park and worked for over 18 years as a Parole & Probation Agent for the State of Maryland, primarily as an investigator for the Courts, Parole Commission and Governor’s Office. In 1986, Neil became active in his family’s business and expanded the financial services offered. He and his brother operated their stores together until 2014. Neil is past president of, and remains active with, the Maryland Association of Financial Service Centers, is a past board member of the Financial Service Centers of America and has been a member of the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) since 2007.
