Thank you, Matt [Kelly]. It is a pleasure to be here to kick off day two of Compliance Week’s 10th annual conference. This conference represents a great opportunity for corporate executives, compliance officers, auditors and in-house and outside counsel to share information about effective compliance policies and practices.
This morning, I want to discuss corporate accountability. How corporations should be holding themselves accountable by designing compliance programs that don’t just look good on paper but actually work. Compliance programs that are designed to protect the company’s reputation, customers, counterparties and the public, as well as ensuring compliance with the law.
