DALLAS, TX – July 17, 2023HighCamp Compliance, a boutique, employee owned and operated compliance consulting and outsourcing firm, announced today that Jeremy Vaughan has joined the firm as its newest Partner. Vaughan, who is based in Dallas, comes to the firm from Starwood Property Trust, Inc.’s SEC-registered investment advisor STWD Investment Management, where he served as Chief Compliance Officer.

Prior to his time with Starwood, Vaughan held several senior-level roles within the compliance industry, such as Senior Staff Accountant with the SEC, including the SEC’s Private Funds Unit., where he led a national examination initiative focused on private equity real estate fund advisors.

“We’re thrilled to have Jeremy joining our leadership team. His extensive and impressive background in compliance will be a significant benefit to our clients and our team,” said HighCamp Founding Partner Brad Burgtorf. “In today’s challenging regulatory environment, Jeremy’s insights and experience will be hugely valuable in offering effective guidance to our clients – many of whom are based in the Dallas area.”

Ever since its founding in 2017, HighCamp has succeeded in recruiting the industry’s top-talent. Most of HighCamp’s team, advisory board, and now Vaughan, have been working together in roles at either the SEC or ACA Group since as early as 2003.

“It has been six years since we’ve opened our doors, and HighCamp continues to build a brand that hires and retains the best people in the industry and supports the top private fund managers,” Burgtorf added. “Jeremy’s joining the firm further illustrates this.”

“I am honored to join HighCamp and am excited to partner with the firm’s skilled and knowledgeable professionals as we help our clients navigate the ever-evolving regulatory landscape,” said Vaughan. “HighCamp has a reputation for offering best-in-class compliance services, and I look forward to helping the firm continue to grow and excel.”
