From Carrie F. Rinehart-Bekker
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
WELCOME! And many thanks for visiting us today! I truly hope you find our site informative. Please feel free to Contact Us anytime if you would like to learn more about how our Experts can help you with your firm's consulting, training, and expert witness needs.
Please see below for a summary about my firm and the niche services that our Experts provide to our financial and legal clients.
Shortly after graduating from St. Petersburg College in 1981, I landed my first paralegal position at Johnson Pope in Clearwater, Florida. From that moment forward, I embarked on what would ultimately become my ongoing 38-year professional journey and personal adventure.
During my sojourn, I was fortunate in that I was able to parlay my SEC and FINRA regulatory compliance expertise -- and leverage my hands-on knowledge -- to continue expanding my career into more senior roles as a Paralegal Supervisor, Corporate/Securities Legal Executive and Senior Compliance Officer, both at home and abroad.
I launched BCCP in June 2006, shortly after transitioning from my position as Director of Variable Annuity Compliance at AIG Sunamerica and taking the plunge into Entrepreneurship, so that I could devote my full time and attention to launching and nurturing my fledgling global consulting and training firm.
Fast forward to 2020: 14 years later, my Consortium of Experts and I have succeeded in taking BCCP from a small startup to where we are today: A global leader in providing niche consulting, training, and expert witness services to the the financial sector and the legal community.
We are a full-service global consulting, training, and expert witness firm that provides customized services to:
Financial Services Firms
We deliver interactive training through Bekker Compliance Institute (BCI), our Global Training Division. Our International Experts design each of our hands-on, how-to workshops utilizing blended learning, which is a unique combination of lecture, roundtable discussions, group exercises featuring scenario-based case studies, and serious gaming modules. We focus on international best practices, combined with regional and local considerations based on where and to whom we are delivering the training. We now offer video-based blended learning.
Our Global Headquarters are based in Porter Ranch, Los Angeles County, California. In 2012, we opened our first regional office in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, to serve the Caribbean and Latin America. In December 2018, we opened another regional office in Bangkok to serve the Asia-Pacific region (APAC). In 2020/21, we will be opening two US satellite offices in NYC and Tampa, Florida. We also plan to open more regional offices in the future based on global demand.
