Brooke Markley, Shining a Spotlight on Compliance

Posted by Lacey Pierce

When Brooke Markley was nominated to participate in our Compliance Professional Spotlight campaign, we knew immediately that she was going to be our next Compliance Champion.

With her extensive experience as an agricultural economist and policy analyst, Brooke has spent her entire career helping others grow their agricultural businesses. In her role as the Trade Compliance Manager at Leprino Foods, Brooke helped revolutionize her company’s processes with respect to compliance and accuracy. As the first person to fill this new position at Leprino, Brooke has gone above and beyond. Not only has she defined the role and navigated the difficulties of being the first with grace, she’s created policies to fit Leprino’s unique compliance requirements associated with the cheese and dairy nutrition products that Leprino Foods exports to more than 40 countries across the globe.

Meet Our Captain of Compliance: Bethany Nelson

Posted by Lacey Pierce

In honor of National Compliance Officer Day, Amber Road will be recognizing one compliance officer weekly from October 3rd through November 4th. With all of the changes in trade agreements, product testing and ethical sourcing standards, maintaining compliance in any part of your supply chain is becoming increasingly more difficult. We believe in the magic that compliance professionals bring to their company. Therefore, we are spotlighting Bethany Nelson, the Export Control Coordinator for the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Bethany is a self-proclaimed “nerd” when it comes to compliance! Over the past 5 years, she’s helped UW-Madison’s Export Control Office grow into a more robust program, through dedicated outreach and education programs. Bethany has done this under the leadership of Tom Demke, the UW-Madison’s Export Control Officer. They ensure the University’s compliance with relevant federal regulations through hard work and dedicated effort.

Before she helped build UW-Madison’s Export Control Program, she earned a B.S. in physics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee but decided that quantum mechanics and black holes were just too pedestrian a field and got a J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School.
