ETHIC Intelligence was founded by Philippe Montigny in 2001 and has been certifying company anti-corruption compliance programs since 2006. Mr. Montigny developed solid expertise in anti-corruption compliance issues as member of the Office of the Secretary-General of the OECD, when he participated in the Ministerial negotiations that lead to the OECD Anti-corruption Convention. For well over fifteen years, he has been active in advising private companies on how to best prevent corruption and resist extortion, and has a solid understanding of the concrete compliance problems faced by companies, particularly those that operate in difficult countries.
Having experienced companies’ real, day-to-day difficulties in developing compliance programs and having witnessed the heavy costs sustained to ensure this compliance, Mr. Montigny searched for ways to convert best efforts into investments. In collaboration with Mark Pieth (Chairman of the OECD Working Group on Bribery), François Vincke (President of the International Chamber of Commerce Anti-corruption Commission), the World Bank and French and American authorities, he developed certification of anti-corruption compliance programs that allows companies to use their compliance efforts not only to effectively prevent bribery, but also to differentiate themselves positively vis-à-vis clients, partners, investors, and other stakeholders.
ETHIC Intelligence has certified company anti-corruption and anti-bribery compliance programs since 2006. The ETHIC Intelligence team has inherited Mr. Montigny’s keen understanding of anti-corruption compliance issues from a regulatory and business standpoint.
