NEW YORK, May 13, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Operation Car Wash Prosecutor Carlos Fernando dos Santos Lima will join senior Brazilian government officials and senior/C-suite executives from over 35 leading Brazilian and multinational companies to discuss anti-corruption, compliance and risk management in Brazil. The summit will feature the highest concentration of anti-corruption experts in the country, and will bring together the leading attorneys who have successfully defended numerous enforcement actions and thereby helped build and improve many of the best compliance programs existing to date.
"Excellent speakers, good structure, great timing." – Oracle
Brazil has been embroiled in a growing corruption scandal, which to date has resulted in a dozen executives from the largest construction companies in the country being arrested, 52 senior politicians investigated by the Brazilian Supreme Court, and over 1 million Brazilians taking to the streets in protest against corruption. All of these developments have led the government to prioritize anti-corruption regulation and voice support for a tightening enforcement environment. Companies conducting business in the region understand that they need to be mindful and re-evaluate the efficacy of their controls and compliance function in light of a tightening Brazilian enforcement environment.
Considered to be the "premier anti-corruption compliance event in Brazil," anticipation is building among registered delegates to hear distinguished industry leaders speak and share their practical experiences on how to adapt compliance programs to the evolving enforcement landscape in Brazil. ACI has announced new speakers for the 2016 program, including:
- Alessandra Del Debbio Assistant General Counsel, Microsoft
- Reynaldo Goto, Director – Compliance Officer, Siemens
- Gustavo Biagioli, Legal & Compliance Director, Jones Lang LaSalle
- Pedro Mariani, General Counsel, AMBEV
- Rogeria Gieremek, Compliance Officer, Grupo LatAm Airlines
- Viviane Souza Miranda, Director Audit, Risk Management and Compliance, Sociedade Beneficente Israelita Brasileira Albert Einstein
- Maria Cecilia Andrade, Compliance Officer, Odebrecht Transportes
This event will take place on May 23 – 25, 2016, at the InterContinental Hotel in São Paulo, Brazil.
