Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.

In today’s episode of Great Women in Compliance, Lisa speaks with Ellen Hunt, who is the Senior Vice President and Audit, Ethics and Compliance Officer for AARP.  Ellen has accomplished so much for the compliance community, in the field and is a friend, advocate and mentor to a lot of people, Lisa and Mary included.

Following along from the episode a few weeks ago about a dream compliance team, this discussion is about what makes a great Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer (although the title may differ from place to place).

The discussion includes a discussion of what the roles and responsibilities are and should be for a new CECO.  This includes some thought about how to manage expectations of a Board and executive team, including the idea of looking at a program and seeing what may not be needed before adding new initiatives.

Ellen also talks about the best ways to lead a team, balancing the needs of high performers with other team members as a new CECO.  She provides a few practical strategies that anyone can use at any time with their teams or within the organization.
