JOPLIN, Mo. — TAMKO Building Products Inc. has announced that its Chief Compliance and Ethics Officer, Art Weiss, has earned the title of Vice President of the joint governing board for the Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics and the Health Care Compliance Association.
“Art is a great fit for this role because of his leadership position with such a credible organization, his passion for the profession and his ability to communicate and connect with everyone,” said Marjorie Doyle, Principal with Marjorie Doyle & Associates, former SCCE Board member and former chief ethics and compliance officer with DuPont.
“TAMKO exemplifies the best in corporate ethics and compliance by living its values. It has made an impact on an international scale with Art’s use of examples throughout his international teachings to students and colleagues in the profession. His participation in the profession at this high level is a win-win for TAMKO and the profession.”
In 2015, the SCCE recognized TAMKO leadership with its highest award for furthering the compliance and ethics profession. This was the first time the organization gave the award to a leadership team for management support of its organizational compliance and ethics program. TAMKO’s philosophy, culture and leadership have also been featured several times in the Compliance and Ethics Professional magazine, where Weiss authored several columns and TAMKO’s President and CEO, David Humphreys, has been featured along with Weiss as an example of strong, ethical and compliant leadership.
Weiss said, “Compliance is a core value at TAMKO, where we have a long history of integrity and responsible choices. We strive to achieve 100 percent compliance, 100 percent of the time, from 100 percent of our employees. It’s a privilege to serve and represent TAMKO in this role.”
Previously, Weiss served on the SCCE Advisory Board for three years before being elected to the joint board (SCCE/HCCA) in 2013, and re-elected in 2016, during which time he served as Board Secretary and Board Treasurer. Since November 2017, Weiss has served as the Second Vice President.
Weiss joined TAMKO in October 2005 and holds the designations of Certified Compliance & Ethics Professional-Fellow (CCEP-F) and Certified Compliance & Ethics Professional-International (CCEP-I) by the Compliance Certification Board, on which he also serves. Weiss earned a bachelor of science degree in journalism from the University of Kansas and his juris doctor degree from Washburn University School of Law.
