Investment firms, real estate firms, as well as retail companies all fell victim to the 2008 financial crisis. Though few of these firms were corrupt, it has now been demanded that in order to remain in business and prospering, it is now required to show transparency not only for every quarter, but also for the day to day activity of the company. With this in mind, it has now become beneficial for successful and large companies to now hire compliance officers who take care of problems before they ever become a true problem. Compliance officers are independent workers who have expertise in not only technology and the industry they are involved in, but also in leadership.
One woman in particular stands out within this industry. This woman is Helane Morrison who has decades of experience working in both the public as well as in the private sector, making sure that business continues to run smoothly. Helane Morrison not only has a degree in journalism, but has also received her law degree which makes her an expert in all law-related issues. Her current position is as the compliance officer for Hall Capital Partners, an international investment firm that wished to demonstrate transparency as well as loyalty to the customers of this successful firm.
Helane Morrison chose to work for Hall Capital Partners in 2007. Her motivation was to become a part of a team that was run by women to show their success within the industry. Her expertise and past experience has already proven to be invaluable to the success of the investment firm. Prior to accepting her position with Hall Capital Partners, Ms. Morrison worked as the head of the San Francisco office of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Her specialty at the time between 1996 and 2007 was in law enforcement and fraudulent behavior.
The job of Helane Morrison is to dedicate her time to finding and fixing problems within the investment firm. Her current main goal, especially after the 2008 financial stock market crash, is to restore the public’s trust in financial services. As a compliance officer, Helane Morrison believes that her current position is where she can do the most good for the public as well as for the future of Hall Capital Partners.
