Episodes 6 & 7: Meet Guest Speaker Andreas Pyrcek
By Ronald J. Coleman
Our sixth and seventh episodes—focused on “The Future of Compliance and Legal with a Digital Lens”—feature guest speakers Josh Hogue, Andreas Pyrcek, and Dr. Annie Green. I asked our guests to “tell us a little bit about themselves, what they do and how they got there.” Andreas said:
“I’m partner of EY based in Düsseldorf, Germany. With the firm around about 16 years and my journey started actually in audit, and around about 2007 we had major compliance issues in the German market and European market, and this was also the big time and big rise of compliance programs within Europe. So this was the time in 2007 when I started working in the compliance environment, helping organizations setting up compliance programs and advising on certain components of compliance programs. But while compliance was maturing, I also moved along and from 2012 to 2015, I was based in New York also working for EY forensics and integrity group global, working on the compliance integrity agenda of the firm, and based as of 2015, back in Germany, and having two major global roles which are relevant for today’s webcast. On one hand, I’m the Global service leader for integrity, compliance and ethics, but my main day to day challenge is to advise clients in finding the right strategies when it comes to compliance and ethics to certain components and how to run compliance programs. And secondly, I’m the Global forensic sector leader for telecommunications, media, and technology. So I see a lot of transformations happening, especially in technology firms, how they leverage technology, but also the new emerging incoming risks based on technology solutions, or digital solutions, which are actually on the agenda of the compliance office today.”
