WSJ: High Compliance Turnover. Why?

When top compliance staff resigns an organization's goal of building a strong compliance program can falter, according to a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) article.

Heading compliance for a company involved in a scandal can be particularly rough. Hector Sants left his chief compliance post after ten months citing "stress and exhaustion." Gary Peterson at HSBC left a similar post after two years. Such turnover makes it difficult for HSBC to revamp compliance after settling with US regulators for $1.9 billion.

"When you have people leaving or any kind of revolving door, the compliance program suffers and the progress suffers."
- Donna Boehme, a former chief compliance officer
To reduce top compliance staff turnover, Donna Boehme, now a principal at a compliance consulting firm, advises "the board should be asking why that person left."
