Helane Morrison is a popular and successful lawyer. For some years now, she has held the position of managing Director at the Securities and Exchange Commission based in San Francisco. She is very optimistic that she will be able to perform her duties well while holding the position of Office Administrator in the same office. Her promotion was announced just recently by the organization’s chairman, Mr. Arthur Levitt. She will actually be the first woman to work in the position of district chief.
Morris joined SEC in 1996, and since then, she has managed to supervise major investigations. Three of these investigation resulted to the enforcement action on republic securities of New York, The Dean Witter and auditions performed on California Micro Devises.In the market today, there are very many compliance officers. However, very few can match the compliance standards set by Helane Morrison. They lack the knowledge and skills she displays in her work, hence failing terribly in their work. According to the CEO of Sterling Management, fraud and scandals happening in the corporates cannot end.
According to a report by Sterling Management, compliance officers should have enough power, knowledge and expertise to detect and put an end to any fraud or scandal before it blows out of proportion. Morrison has been able to perform very well in the male dominated office because she has all it takes. Most compliance officers are too busy in other activities, and this makes them forget their important duties. They are also not well paid, and sometimes, they have to cheat in order to get good bonuses.
