(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) October 25, 2010 - Over time, an approach some organizations have chosen to pursue is combining the chief compliance officer position with that of the general counsel. In fact, of the individuals surveyed who cite their organization as having a chief compliance/ethics officer position, a substantial percentage state that the chief compliance/ethics officer also serves as the organization’s general counsel. In light of current economic conditions, this number may continue to rise. However, although these roles have natural areas of overlap, the approach of combining them should be carefully considered before adoption.
