In-House Compliance Experts Share Five Strategies for Building a High-Performing Compliance Team

A chief compliance officer is often asked to “build the ship while sailing” – to staff a high-performing compliance department and develop a compliance strategy while simultaneously meeting the company’s ongoing compliance needs.  During a recent panel at SCCE’s Compliance & Ethics Institute, a distinguished group of in-house compliance experts discussed five best practices for developing effective compliance and ethics teams.  The panelists – whose experience spans a range of companies – included Donna Boehme, a principal at Compliance Strategists and formerly the group compliance and ethics officer for BP; Stephen Naughton, chief ethics and compliance officer for Kimberly-Clark and previously chief compliance officer for PepsiCo; Janice Innis-Thompson, chief compliance officer at TIAA-CREF; and Judi Nocito, senior advisor with Compliance Strategists and previously a director of global compliance for Alcoa.  See also “How to Structure Chief Compliance Officer Reporting Lines to Maximize the Efficacy of Anti-Corruption Compliance (Part One of Three),” The FCPA Report, Vol. 2, No. 22 (Nov. 6, 2013); Part Two, Vol. 2, No. 23 (Nov. 20, 2013); Part Three, Vol. 2, No. 24 (Dec. 4, 2013).
