Chief Compliance Officer
“What happens behind the scenes is critical to a good client experience. I came to Legacy Financial Group 17 years ago thinking I could help the team get started by applying my combined engineering degree and MBA. I never left. I find great satisfaction from doing the back office work that has to be done in a busy retirement planning office.”
Don Tanaka is responsible for FINRA and SEC compliance. He develops and manages back office operations, including computer and Internet systems, security of client data, accounting, payroll, business plans and business operations.
Don holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois and a Masters of Business Administration from USC.
Don and Melanie have two young adult daughters. He enjoys golfing, computer games and hiking. The latter took him to the top of Mt. Fuji in Japan in 2015 and along the Kalalau Trail in Kauai, Hawaii in 2016.
