This award recognises an outstanding compliance leader who always goes beyond the call of duty, leads their department well through the minefield of regulatory change, and has significantly raised the compliance profile in their organisation, recommending pragmatic solutions, transforming the operation, and showing thought leadership.
This award is only open to individuals; specifically, judges are looking for a Chief Compliance Officer. The award recipient will be a genuine leader in their organisation - a person who proactively engages with management, their team, and regulatory bodies to promote initiatives throughout the organisation and create a culture of compliance. Judges will look for specific examples of how the individual has achieved this. Appearances at industry conferences, training initiatives introduced into the organisation, and demonstrations of thought leadership will also be considered.
