    Good article, although I do have one difference of opinion. If a company is starting from scratch, and has no experience running a compliance program, I think the worst thing, and the most common thing, is to designate someone from within as the new CCO. The new CCO in this instance needs to know how to build a compliance program, what the scope of that role is, and how to implement it. An organization with no compliance experience does not, by definition, include that skill set in its workforce. I have seen, more than once, organizations that think you can just plug someone in to the compliance role, and the program inevitably suffers. If the commitment is to having an internal person at the helm, then the organization needs to bring in a lot of expertise on the front end to help that new CCO get it right and learn the ropes. Just my thoughts…
