The CEO of BH Compliance, Susana Sierra, received in Las Vegas the Gold Stevie Award in the category of Woman Entrepreneur or Executive of the Year in Mexico, Central, and South America, for her work supporting companies in Latin America to prevent corruption.
The businesswoman, who is also a director of AmCham Chile -and until October served as president of Chile Transparente-, has stood out in the world of compliance, the fight against corruption in the private sector, and the strengthening of the role of business in society.
Specifically, from BH Compliance she monitors companies’ crime prevention programs, creating evidence of their good corporate practices and demonstrating that they are doing everything possible to avoid corruption.
Since December 2021, she has been based in Miami, where she offers compliance program monitoring services to transnational companies with subsidiaries in Latin America. From there, she has participated in various instances, which have profiled her in her business role. In this context, it is worth mentioning her participation -through BH Compliance- as one of the seven companies selected to join Endeavor Miami’s ScaleUp program (Endeavor Miami’s Spring Cohort), to continue applying technology in the fight against corruption.
In this way, he has brought compliance to the forefront, incorporating technology such as blockchain and creating the G-Metrix tool to measure the governance of companies.
“Since I learned about compliance I fell in love with its implications in the fight against corruption. Being awarded for doing my job, which is, at the same time, my passion, inspires me to keep challenging myself and continue to innovate in a sector where there is a lot to do,” said Susana Sierra.
The Stevie Awards have been presented since 2002 to organizations and individuals from more than 60 countries for their business achievements in various categories, with Gold, Silver, and Bronze in each category. The finalists achieved average scores from more than 200 professionals around the world divided into seven groups of specialized juries.
