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

For some people, working in ethics and compliance is a destination, and for others, it is a stop on the journey.  How do you figure that out?  In today’s bonus episode, Lisa talks with Kris Brown, who is the President of Brady, which is the leading advocacy group in the United States to end gun violence.  Prior to joining Brady, she was the Chief Legal Officer at gategroup, and also worked at a large law firm.

If this sounds a little familiar, that is because Kris is a colleague and mentor to Lisa, and in fact, got Lisa started on her career in compliance.  So Lisa and Mary thought that it would be good to share Kris’s journey into — and out of — compliance.

They discuss how Kris found herself in compliance, and how a significant fraud situation impacted her role, and was the backdrop of building a global compliance program.  She talks about what she has learned from that experience and how it applies to her day-to-day work and how what we do in E&C can transcend our roles.

She also discusses what she sees as key attributes for a compliance officer in her view as she has transitioned out of a traditional legal role and into her current one.
