Compliance and Internal Audit
Newtown Square, Pa., December 23, 2011 – Kimberly Lansford, vice president of compliance and internal audit, was honored by the New York County Lawyers’ Association (NYCLA) at its 97th Annual Dinner, held on December 13, 2011 in New York City. Lansford was one of 30 compliance officers recognized for their pioneering work in legal compliance and enforcement at leading companies throughout the United States.
“Recent headlines constantly remind us of the importance of corporate compliance and the serious consequences of failures to comply,” said Dinner Co-Chair and past NYCLA President Robert L. Haig. “At this year’s Annual Dinner, NYCLA is honoring distinguished Chief Compliance officers who are leading their corporations’ compliance efforts.”
“Kim is certainly effective in monitoring and supporting implementation of effective compliance processes across the system,” said Mike Hemsley, CHE’s vice president, legal services and General Counsel. “But perhaps more importantly, Kim is a leader and vocal advocate in perpetuating the essential culture of compliance throughout Catholic Health East.”
Lansford has served as CHE’s vice president of compliance and audit since January 2009. Her major areas of responsibility include the continued development and implementation of CHE’s compliance and internal audit programs; providing strategic and administrative guidance to senior management and governance in relation to business risks; and monitoring the effectiveness of the control environment.
