Kathryn joins the organisation's Senior Management Team and will lead the Business Integrity Programme, engaging the business community to raise anti-corruption standards in the private sector and provide a level playing field for companies that operate with integrity.

She has previously worked in senior ethics and compliance roles at FTSE-100 companies, and earlier this year featured in The Lawyer Magazine’s “Hot 100” of lawyers in the UK. In 2014 Kathryn was also named Compliance Specialist of the Year at the Women in Compliance Awards.

Robert Barrington, Executive Director Transparency International UK, said:

“I am delighted that Kathryn will be leading our Business Integrity Programme and continuing our work to engage companies in the fight against corruption. She brings a wealth of experience from the private sector and a unique insight into the challenges and risks faced by companies in the anti-corruption field. Just a few weeks ago we launched our new online anti-corruption guidance tool, providing up-to-date and in-depth guidance and benchmarking for businesses in understanding and tackling bribery, and we look forward to Kathryn taking forward our work in this and other areas.”

Kathryn Higgs, Director Business Integrity Programme Transparency International UK, said:

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining the team at Transparency International UK, working with an exceptionally talented, passionate and professional team and partnering with leading ethical UK companies and the broader private sector to combat corruption globally.”
