MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday evening, September 26, 2016, during the Compliance & Ethics Institute, the Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics (SCCE) will host the 12th Annual International Compliance & Ethics Awards Dinner and honor:
- Kimberly Brandt, Chief Oversight Counsel, U.S. Senate Finance Committee, Majority Staff;
- Competition Bureau Canada;
- Dun & Bradstreet;
- Thomas R. Fox, Principal, Advanced Compliance, TomFoxlaw.com
This event recognizes those who have made a significant contribution to the growing profession of compliance and ethics.
During the dinner the U.S. Sentencing Commission will receive special recognition in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Organizational Sentencing Guidelines, which have set the framework for compliance programs.
The Compliance & Ethics profession is one of the "hottest" professions today. Now, compliance and ethics professionals are a regular part of the business senior management structure, with government regulators and enforcement leaders recognizing the value of compliance & ethics within organizations and institutions. This was not always the case. The recognition of the profession happened slowly and with the help of many individuals, organizations, and corporate leaders. Astute individuals and organizations have helped shape and guide the profession, provide an example for the compliance and business communities, and herald its value in business.
"Compliance came to exist because those who came before us failed to stem the growing tide of corporate wrongdoing," said SCCE CEO Roy Snell. "It was always someone else's problem. The Sentencing Guidelines laid out what it looked like to really manage the issue, and the compliance department has proudly taken the reigns. This night is an opportunity for us to recognize the best and the brightest in our profession."
