Over four episodes each month on The Compliance Life, I visit with one current or former CCO to explore their journey to the CCO chair. This month, my guest is Wendy Badger, CCO at Tennant Company. 
    In this concluding episode, Wendy reflected on leaving her CCO position immediately preceding the pandemic and the time she had for reflection about that decision and what she learned about herself. She talked about her new role a Tennant and some key lessons learned she has been able to put into places such as the criticality of cross-functional collaboration, why technology should not be seen as the “cure all” to compliance woes and how to both layer and leverage data.

    Wendy further elaborated on her non-traditional career path, where she found sometimes you must change your career ladder to advance your career. From the trade association, she went in-house with an accounts receivable management organization. She was the first and only lawyer on staff. The work provided both challenges and opportunities in the role. From there she decided to move into private practice, found out how it was different from in-house roles and ultimately decided to move back in-house.

We then discussed her early legal career – immediate jump to compliance in the early 2000s through a very non-traditional path of joining an international trade association where she found passion for and niche in compliance.

    Melican moved into the CCO chairs at AMEX travel. He said a key lesson was that being a CCO was leading through orchestration not simply execution. A key was working with others in the business unit to educate them on how compliance changes were made but why they benefited AMEX Travel. He discussed some of his top challenges that he faced and how he and his compliance team overcame them through collaboration.
