Geert Vermeulen is a seasoned compliance professional, specialized in establishing and improving ethics and compliance frameworks and programmes, especially in respect of anti-bribery and corruption and trade restrictions. Other specialties include corporate governance, compliance risk assessments and whistleblowing systems and procedures.
On January 1 2016 Geert started his own company, Ethics & Compliance Management & Consulting (ECMC). His mission is to help organizations conduct business in an ethical way, to remediate any issues from the past and make the world a slightly better place. Through ECMC Geert provides compliance training, compliance consulting and interim ethics & compliance management. Geert also speaks and writes on compliance and ethics.
Before starting ECMC Geert worked as a Director of the Netherlands Compliance Institute (NCI). This institute is specialized in providing compliance education, training and compliance consultancy and recruitment services. As compliance officers now became Geert’s clients, he stepped down as the president of the Dutch Compliance Officer Association.
Geert obtained most of his experience in-house. As Global Head of Compliance for Damco, the freight forwarding arm of the AP Möller-Maersk Group, he was responsible for the compliance activities in 90 countries, focusing mainly on antibribery and trade restrictions. As Chief Compliance Officer at Aon EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) he coordinated compliance efforts in some 60 countries. Following inquiries from regulators Aon started its anti-corruption program in 2007. Geert has coordinated this program in the EMEA region from the start. According to the US and UK authorities Aon developed a best practice model other firms may wish to adopt.
Geert has been a frequent speaker at international compliance events ever since.
Geert Vermeulen will be delivering a one day Compliance, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Programme on the 25 April 2018. During the training session one will learn how to set up an effective ethics and compliance programme in general and an anti-corruption programme in specific. There will be discussions around recent trends and developments, including Dieselgate and the Panama Papers and how do these affect the compliance function.
This programme is targeted towards Compliance Officers, Company Lawyers, Auditors, Consultants, Business Ethics Professionals, Accountants and anyone dealing with Ethics & Compliance.
