Many individuals often spot fraudulent business practices, but they do not take any action to discourage such activities due to the financial gains. Only a few individuals in society such as Helane Morrison have been able to maintain a stern ground against corrupt business entities and unethical corporate practices.
The economic crisis of 2007 still stands as a harsh reminder of the resultant effects of corporate manipulation. It is during this turmoil that most companies found themselves at the government’s mercy due to troubling economic situations. The unemployment levels at the time had skyrocketed due to the collapse of most corporate firms. Looking at such times, the relevance of more individuals such as Morrison becomes a reality.
Working for Hon. Harry Blackmun made a huge ideological impact on Morrison since Blackmun stood firm for his decisions, especially on matters such as abortion. This had a significant impact on Morrison, who ended up becoming a champion of moral correctness as well as equality. Consequently, this ignited her battle against corruption and its perpetrators.
The government was one of the entities that noticed Morrison’s strong stand against corruption. This led to Morrison acquiring a new position from a law firm partner to the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission office in San Francisco. This must have given Morrison a new level of power in steering her pursuit for justice such as protecting businesses and individuals from fraudulent parties.
Helane Morrison is preceded by her reputation and effort in the compliance division.
