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 Natalia Shehadeh, Chief Compliance Officer at ABB. In this Episode 3, we review Natalia’s moving into the CCO Chair.

Natalia went into the corporate world and immediately landed jobs at not only high-profile firms but those going through significant FCPA journeys, investigations and enforcement actions. Her roles provided the beauty of travel and connection across dozens of countries, experience in areas well beyond traditional compliance including:   high-stakes enforcement and litigation provoking brand risks, devastating security challenges provoking human risk, and yet opportunity for synergy as we recognized the impact organization culture and inclusion can have on our integrity mission.
