Phoenix, AZ – December 8, 2010 – Corpedia Corporation, a global leader in ethics and compliance training solutions and advisory services, today announced that Eric Morehead, former Assistant General Counsel to the United States Sentencing Commission (USSC), has joined Corpedia’s Compliance Advisory Services division as Senior Compliance Counsel. “We’re thrilled to welcome Eric aboard our growing team,” said Erica Salmon-Byrne, Assistant General Counsel and Managing Director of Compliance Advisory Services for Corpedia Corporation. “Eric, who made a significant contribution in his tenure as Assistant General Counsel to the USSC by chairing the committee that authored the most recent amendments to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, will be an indispensable asset to our clients looking for guidance on how to most effectively comply with the updated Guidelines and how to be prepared for future changes to the Guidelines. We’re looking forward to offering even greater insight and expertise to our clients who are meeting the growing demands of a complex and oftentimes daunting legal environment. Eric’s insights will be particularly welcomed and useful.”
Mr. Morehead most recently served as Assistant General Counsel for the U.S. Sentencing Commission, where he helped develop ethics and compliance policy related to the Organizational Sentencing Guidelines (Chapter 8). More specifically, he acted as the Chair of the Organizational Guidelines Policy Team that authored the latest amendments to the Guidelines which became effective in November.
“I’m delighted to be joining the Corpedia team,” Morehead said. “Not only are the expectations of organizations with regard to corporate behavior greater than ever, but we’re increasingly seeing companies being held responsible for failing to implement or oversee effective compliance efforts. Corpedia is well positioned within the corporate legal compliance and ethics industry to offer a uniquely comprehensive solution to its clients, and I’m looking forward to communicating the expectations we developed and implemented at the Sentencing Commission as guidance for Corpedia clients in honing their programs.”
Prior to his tenure at the U.S. Sentencing Commission, Eric served as senior litigation associate for a premier white collar litigation boutique in Houston, where he was responsible for dozens of complex cases including investigations initiated from the Fraud Section of the Department of Justice, various U.S. Attorney’s Offices and many different federal and state regulatory agencies, in addition to assisting clients with the design and implementation of ethics and compliance programs, including training of employees, contractors, agents, and other related associates. Mr. Morehead has presented at seminars for compliance industry organizations on topics that range from specific compliance threats, such as fraud and information privacy, to organizational compliance integration.
