    Timothy Burniston

    Senior Advisor, Regulatory Strategy

    Timothy Burniston joined Wolters Kluwer in 2011 to lead the company’s Risk and Compliance consulting practice in December 2011. In July 2017 he was named senior advisor, regulatory strategy. In this role, he advises Wolters Kluwer clients on challenging risk and regulatory compliance issues. In addition, he serves as senior advisor to Wolters Kluwer Governance, Risk and Compliance leadership on matters pertaining to regulatory strategy.

    Burniston works directly with compliance and risk management executives to help them more effectively navigate an increasingly complex regulatory environment under the Dodd-Frank Act. He does so drawing upon his experience leading compliance examination programs for more than 35 years at the Federal Reserve Board (Fed), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS).

    Prior to joining Wolters Kluwer, Burniston was a senior associate director with the Federal Reserve Board’s Division of Consumer and Community Affairs. While with the Fed, he was tapped by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to help develop the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s large depository institution examination program. Burniston’s main responsibilities at the Fed included monitoring and evaluating its consumer compliance examination and fair lending enforcement programs.

    Burniston began his regulatory career as an analyst and consumer compliance examiner with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1977, and he joined the Fed’s Division of Consumer and Community Affairs shortly thereafter. Burniston left the Fed in 1988 to establish the compliance examination program at the former Office of Thrift Supervision. In 2000, he joined the FDIC to oversee a major redesign of that agency’s consumer compliance examination program. He returned to the Fed in 2005.

    Burniston earned his undergraduate degree from Gettysburg College and an M.B.A from George Washington University. He is a Certified Regulatory Compliance Manager (CRCM), and served on the CRCM Advisory Board of the Institute of Certified Bankers.
