Krystle Hood of Santander Bank honored at 25th Annual CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium
Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions has named Krystle Hood, CRA Compliance Manager at Santander Bank, NA in Boston, as the 2021 honoree of its Alfredo deHaas Excellence in Analytics Award. The award, which recognizes a banking professional who “excels in leveraging data to demonstrate his or her institution’s commitment to regulatory compliance,” was announced at the company’s 25th annual CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium on Tuesday, Nov. 17th.
Named after longtime Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) analyst Alfredo deHaas of MUFG Union Bank, N.A., the award is meant “to trumpet the ‘unsung heroes’ who embody Alfredo’s passion and spirit for championing the creative and thoughtful use of data.”
Hood was selected by a committee of veteran compliance professionals from the banking industry for her professionalism, accomplishments and commitment to excellence in data analytics. She was part of the bank’s Compliance team to revitalize and strengthen Santander’s community revitalization work, including her participation in the bank’s “Inclusive Communities” initiative, a major program to boost the long-term economic success of low- and moderate-income individuals and neighborhoods in the communities where Santander does business, including the greater Boston region through increased lending.
“Alfredo deHaas had a passion using data analytics to help colleagues make more informed business decisions and in that way help fulfill their regulatory compliance obligations. In her role with Santander’s CRA compliance team, Krystle Hood has embodied those same qualities,” said Steven Meirink, Executive Vice President and General Manager at Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions. “It is a great honor to recognize Krystle’s dedication and contributions to data analytics through this award.”
