He is a member of the IBDEE, the Brazilian Institute of Law and Business Ethics as well as the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics. In recognition of his dedication to the public interest, Bruno Fagali and his advertising firm were awarded the Pró-Ética Award, which recognizes and fosters excellence in the compliance field.
According to Bruno Fagali, one of the biggest challenges that the firm faced was the sheer amount of paperwork the Government Accounting Office required. The attorney had to answer an endless list of questions in a detailed fashion. According to Fagali, most business do not have that level of awareness or record-keeping when it comes to their compliance programs.
For Bruno Fagali, compliance isn’t a box that needs to be checked, but an important component of success in business. He believes that social responsibility is fast becoming one of the major metrics that consumers use in making their decisions, and companies that do not heed the message will suffer the consequences.
