Getting and Keeping a Seat at the Executive Table with Gabrielle Griffith

In recent years, starting with the previous administration, Trade Compliance took a front seat in the executive suite.  That suddenly put a spotlight on trade departments within companies as they sought to understand how certain trade policies were going to affect their business.

In this episode of Simply Trade, our guest, Gabrielle Griffith from BPE Global, explains how the role of trade compliance individuals were now part of conversations in company decisions.  As this started to fade with the current administration, Gaby explains how trade compliance can continue to have a voice and stay in front of executives when it comes to planning and making business decisions… ultimately helping the department with resources and making their job easier by obtaining continued support from the top level.

“This is your new role in trade compliance, right? So they’re thinking ‘okay, this is great, I can do this!’ And they’re used to the shipping warehouse, and to get it out the door. Then when they get in the room, they’re like, ‘wait a minute, there’s a little bit more to getting it out the door.’ It’s not just putting it in a box and sending it out the door, there’s a whole lot more going on…”
