New Europe: Interview with AT&T Chief Compliance Officer, David Huntley

Huntley has been in this role at AT&T since December 2014, following a number of key senior leadership roles, including assistant general counsel, general counsel and secretary for all legal functions of Advertising Solutions and Interactive operations, and Senior Vice President of Mobility Customer Service Centres.

As the interview commenced, the gravitas of Huntley’s role, and his vast work experience started to radiate in the room. But it only took a few moments to realise that there was much more to the man. The Fitbit on his hand caught my attention. Huntley, 58, later told me that he was running three miles every morning.

The first thing that I wanted to know, is ‘What does a Chief Compliance Officer do?’

“I’m responsible for verifying our company’s compliance with all rules, regulations, and laws, wherever we do business, and also safeguarding our customer and employee information,” Huntley explained. “But it’s much more than just internal policies and controls. It’s also about promoting a culture of ethics, integrity and trust. When you build on a foundation of personal responsibility and integrity, compliance follows. We believe that is a strategic advantage for us.”
