– from Steven F. Murray, Chief Executive Officer, Centinel Spine

I’m fortunate to have worked with Clivetty Martinez and Jeff Miller, two highly effective compliance and privacy professionals at Granite GRC. Together with them, my organization and I were able to effectively grow our business while fully complying with country-specific laws and internal company directives across Latin America. The key to their impact lies in their understanding of the business, their knowledge of laws and regulations, but above all in their ability to relate to, and communicate with the organization in a way that helped us all understand how to operate correctly and effectively in a highly competitive market. I recommend their work to any company seeking to establish or improve their compliance related activities around the world.
