(September 12 , 2007, Washington, D.C.) – Carolyn Lindsey has joined TRACE International’s corporate compliance team effective immediately.
Ms. Lindsey joins TRACE from Powell Goldstein in Washington DC where she worked exclusively on international regulatory issues. She advised clients in the areas of export controls, economic sanctions and Bank Secrecy Act compliance issues, as well as regulations relating to state and federally chartered financial institutions.
She also advised multinational companies on Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and international anti-bribery compliance issues. Prior to joining Powell Goldstein, Ms. Lindsey interned for the Office of the United States Trade Representative.
“We are confident that Carolyn will add a fresh perspective and enthusiasm to TRACE’s business transparency and anti-bribery initiatives, said President of TRACE Alexandra Wrage. “Carolyn’s experience with the FCPA and other international regulatory issues will be of great benefit to TRACE members and we are delighted to have her as part of the team.”
Ms. Lindsey views her new position as one that will allow her to be proactive in reducing international bribery and corrupt business practices. “I look forward to the opportunity of traveling to educate current and potential TRACE members about preventing business bribery in international business transactions,” she said. “I also
look forward to sharing TRACE’s well-researched “best practices” with member companies and helping them steer clear of corrupt business practices, as well as educating companies that are not yet aware of the organization’s international business resources.”
A graduate of Hollins College, Ms. Lindsey received her law degree from The George Washington School of Law. She will be based in TRACE’s Annapolis office.
