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 John Melican, former CCO at AMEX Travel and now Managing Director at Exiger.

Melican moved to the corporate world starting at the New York Stock Exchange and then into the financial services world at Bearn Sterns where he was a Managing Director/Principal for three years. It was at Bearn Sterns he began his career in AML work and in compliance. From Bearn Sterns he went to American Express. He talked about moving from a financial services firm to one of the largest multi-national companies in the travel and financial transactions business.
