This week the Women in Compliance Awards finalist shortlist was announced, and I'm thrilled to report that I was shortlisted for the Compliance Innovator of the Year Award, while my company, Spark Compliance Consulting was shortlisted for Compliance Consulting Team of the Year! I look forward to joining many of you at the awards this March in London!
The press release about the event (a copy of which can be found here) reads:
The world’s best and brightest women in the compliance field will be celebrated once again on March 30, 2017 in London at the Women in Compliance Awards. And this year, the guest list will include Kristy Grant-Hart and her company, Spark Compliance Consulting.
Spark Compliance Consulting was shortlisted for the Compliance Consulting Team of the Year, while Kristy Grant-Hart was shortlisted for the Compliance Innovator of the Year Award. Ms. Grant-Hart is clearly thrilled. “For Spark Compliance Consulting to be named in the same list as such established global firms as PWC and Baker McKenzie is incredible, especially as we have only been open one year.” Grant-Hart continued, “I’m deeply honoured to be nominated for the Compliance Innovator of the Year Award. I love the compliance community, and it is exciting to be included in the shortlist!” Spark Compliance Consulting is run by CEO Ms. Grant-Hart in London and West Coast Director Diana Trevley in Los Angeles. The dynamic pair met as first-year associates nearly a decade ago in the Los Angeles office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
The annual Women in Compliance Awards are “the ultimate celebration of the achievements female compliance professionals make every day in the world of compliance and business. The Awards embody the very best initiatives, individuals and teams, bringing into sharp focus the united efforts of this innovative and dynamic sector” according to organizer C-5. The black-tie event features a champagne reception, formal dinner and celebrity entertainment.
