Summary

Patrick Henz started his career in the Corporate Information Office and Compliance at the end of 2007, when he was responsible for the implementation of the Siemens Anti-Corruption program in Mexico and several Central American and Caribbean countries.

Since 2009 in his role as Compliance Officer he is responsible for an effective Compliance program; based on identification, protection, detection, response & recovery and combined with integrity, respect, passion & sustainability . With these means, he defines Compliance as pro-active function, being perceived as guardian, expert and facilitator. The focus is on information to ensure adequate behavior, not only of the human employee, but Artificial Intelligence included.

According an effective sustainability strategy, where Compliance plays a key role, he actively promotes the idea at university workshops and conferences (including the ACI Compliance Boot-Camp 2013, ’16 and ‘17 in Houston). Doing so, he became two times President of Honor of Marcus Evans' Latin-American Corporate Compliance Conference 2011 and 2012 in Mexico City, panelist at The Economist Mexico Summit 2015 and the Compliance Week Technology Innovation & Compliance Summit 2018.
