Chief Compliance Officer
As the Chief Compliance Officer at FFF Enterprises Inc. (FFF), Melissa Lore manages all compliance, ethics, and privacy activities across FFF and its subsidiaries. She is responsible for establishing standards and implementing procedures to ensure the Company's compliance programs are effective and efficient in identifying, preventing, and correcting noncompliance with applicable laws and regulations and that behavior in the organization meets the Company's Standards of Conduct.
Melissa also supports the CEO, Board of Directors, and Executive Leadership Team by monitoring and reporting results of the Company's compliance and ethics efforts and provides guidance on risk identification and management as well as other compliance matters. With over 20 years of legal and compliance experience, including over a decade in the pharmaceutical industry, Melissa is a collaborative and authentic leader who uses a creative, solution-oriented approach to provide practical solutions that move the business forward while mitigating risk for the Company.
After 10 years in private practice at large law firms in Chicago and Philadelphia, Melissa joined Merck in 2010 in its regulatory legal department. During her tenure, she progressed through a series of legal and compliance roles with increasing responsibility, including moving to Singapore as the Director of Legal and Compliance for Merck's Asia South region. When Merck spun off some of its business lines into a new publicly traded, $6.5 billion global healthcare company focused on improving women's health, Melissa was offered the opportunity to lead the compliance function at the new company, Organon. After setting up the compliance program at Organon, she moved on to her next challenge—the distribution side of the pharmaceutical business, by leading compliance at FFF.
She received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Quincy University and her Juris Doctor from Northwestern University School of Law. She currently lives outside Philadelphia with her husband, J.C., their five children, and their new puppy, and she enjoys traveling, the outdoors, and reading in her free time.
