PORTLAND, Ore., April 8, 2020 – NAVEX Global, the leader in integrated risk and compliance management solutions, today announced that Chief Risk and Compliance Officer Carrie Penman has been honored with Compliance Week’s first-ever Lifetime Achievement in Compliance Award. As part of the publication’s Excellence in Compliance Awards program, the Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes longtime practitioners that have upheld the core principles of ethics and leadership throughout their career.

“Carrie was in the field of ethics and compliance years before it was widely recognized as a necessary part of any business,” said Dave Lefort, Editor in Chief of Compliance Week. “She’s not only shown the way for a generation of compliance leaders, she’s been a mentor to many. Always generous with her time and energy, we couldn’t imagine a more fitting honoree for our inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award.”

With more than 25 years’ experience – starting her ethics and compliance career as the first Director of Corporate Ethics at Westinghouse – Carrie has consistently led the profession with both common-sense and innovative ideas for how compliance can enhance business performance. At NAVEX Global, she is responsible for the full range of internal risk and compliance programs. This includes a leading role on the Emergency Management Team, which was most recently mobilized to implement the company’s business continuity plan in response to COVID-19. In addition, she is a valued contributor to NAVEX Global’s Sales, Marketing, Services and Product teams.

Carrie also serves as an advisor to many of the world’s largest organizations, helping them assess and improve their risk and compliance programs.

“Carrie’s experience and exceptional execution of her responsibilities here at NAVEX Global make her an example for risk and compliance officers everywhere,” said Bob Conlin, NAVEX Global President and CEO. “She is both a trailblazer and a steadying force for how we operate our business. We are proud to see her recognized for her commitment and dedication to the industry.”
