Last week, members of The Execu|Search Group’s Legal/Compliance team hosted a roundtable for a variety of compliance professionals. The event focused on discussing general trends and observations about the SEC and industry as a whole.
Led by Melanie Marshak, a Managing Director within The Execu|Search Group’s Legal/Compliance specialty area, approximately 15 attendees (including Chief Compliance Officers and General Counsels) discussed 2017 SEC exam priorities, tips for preparing for an SEC inspection, and the impact new Pay Equity legislation will have throughout the industry. Attendees also got the opportunity to hear from special guest speaker Christopher Ray, a Senior Principal Consultant, who has over 15 years of industry experience and specializes in SEC compliance.
“These forums serve as a great platform for having an open dialogue about key issues impacting compliance programs,” says Melanie. “Compliance professionals typically attend several conferences and roundtables throughout the year as they provide opportunities to network and share information with like-minded professionals.”
