Camilla Barker-DeStefano

Head of Global Compliance
Connecticut, United States


My grandfather (whose decidedly British sense of humour I adore) thinks I’ve been doing little but collecting post-nominals since I was 18. The reality is somewhat different (I think).

As an international lawyer, I worked tirelessly in humanitarian and disaster law until shifting gears to explore global business, which had long been an interest of mine. My proudest moments prior to the shift include halting a man’s execution on ‘death row’ in Louisiana (twice) and fighting the sexual abuse of children by soldiers in Liberia.

To fund those desperately underpaid escapades, I set up a handful of small businesses – a few I sold, a couple I held onto – but all of which taught me a lot about entrepreneurship and innovation. I’ve been hooked ever since.

I’m currently Head of Global Compliance at a Berlin-based tech startup in the global expansion industry. Our platform not only makes it easier than ever for companies to grow global teams, but by putting transparency and compliance at the heart of everything we do, we’re committing ourselves to improving professional standards across the entire industry.

Whether I’m asked to or not, I write about global business topics here and there, and – only when I’m asked to – I dabble in a bit of legal tech/law tech consulting on the side.

In the future, I’d love to open a capital fund for companies that want to tackle global environmental challenges like deforestation, pollution, and excessive consumption. It would also be pretty cool to open a chain of coworking spaces for social entrepreneurs one day. (Psst. I’ve got my eye on a building already, so watch this ‘space’…)

That said, I’m open to wherever great opportunities take me, so if you’ve got an idea or a project you think I might be able to help you with, I’d love to hear from you!
