The Compliance Life details the journey to and in the role of a Chief Compliance Officer. How does one come to sit in the CCO chair? What are some of the skills a CCO needs to success navigate the compliance waters in any company? What are some of the top challenges CCOs have faced and how did they meet them? These questions and many others will be explored in this new podcast series. Over four episodes each month on The Compliance Life, I visit with one current or former CCO to explore their journey to the CCO chair. This month, my guest is Gwen Hassan, Managing Counsel and Director of Compliance at CNH Industrial.

In this first episode, we consider Gwen’s journey to her role, She discusses her educational background, a family tragedy which led to her legal education and her initial exposure to the field of compliance. As with all the guests on The Compliance Life, there were many twists and turn which led to her current position.
