Mike Scher talks with the ‘Lion of Compliance’

Mike Scher – The FCPA Blog – March 30, 2015


Donna Boehme is widely credited with transforming the compliance profession into what is now known as Compliance 2.0. For that ten-year pioneering struggle and for creating models for global compliance programs, the SCCE’s 10-year anniversary award for dedicated service went to her as the “Lion of Compliance.”

Donna is also known among compliance officers as a warm and wise friend, the one COs should turn to if threatened with retaliation, or when unsure in the tough situations, like how to deliver internal reports of wrongdoing to unreceptive top executives and directors. Donna convenes the annual RAND Symposium reports on strategy for this evolving profession.

Donna is a founder of Compliance Strategists, a leading consulting firm based in the metropolitan New York area specializing exclusively in compliance, ethics, risk and governance practice. She was previously in private law practice with Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson in New York. She holds a J.D. from New York University School of Law. Donna kindly agreed to answer a few questions for the FCPA Blog.
