Cambria Estates, one of the successful companies under the Jackson Family Wines umbrella is recently touting their Vérité La Joie a Cabernet intensive Bourdeaux blend. This varietal is the darling of Julia Jackson, daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke and current spokesperson for the family business. Jackson, a graduate of Scripps College, is one of the most forceful proponents of the Cabernet grape as grown in Sonoma. She believes that the weather and soil in the Sonoma region are very well suited to this varietal, and the success of Vérité La Joie seems to be proving her right.
In addition to her duties as spokesperson for the ever successful and always growing Jackson Family Wines, Julia is kept very busy with her charitable organization Cambria Seeds of empowerment. This organization works to empower women in the workplace, and Julia credits her mother Barbar Banke as a strong influence in her belief in the success of women. Julia Jackson is well aware of the way that working in a male-dominated field can be difficult and the many challenges that can arise. Everyone is aware of how the winemaking world is mostly populated by men and the women are often pushed to the side. Through her organization, Julia is able to provide young women with the necessary tools to succeed in business, even in those fields that are typically dominated by men.

Jackson Family Wines continues to expand and grow, and it is very fortunate indeed to have someone like Julia Jackson on board. Her work as a spokesperson, philanthropist, and champion of the Cabernet varietal are all evidence of her dedication and commitment to winemaking and her family’s work. Julia is able to see the potential growth in the company’s near future, but she is also aware and respectful of its history.
Helane Morrison has had a long lasting career in the State of California in the finance world. She has worked on both sides of the coin. She is also highly educated. She obtained a degree in Journalism from Northwestern and a J.D. from University of California at Berkley before starting her career. Morrison started out working as a defense lawyer that worked defending people that were being sued by Securities Exchange Commission. After that, she made a completely switch in her career.
Morrison’s next job landed her with a position working for the SEC itself. She started out as a District Administrator for the SEC in their San Francisco office. Her vast knowledge, unyielding work ethic, and commitment to ethics overall when it came to finance got her the job as Regional Director for the entire Pacific Northwest at the SEC. During her time in this position she investigated and oversaw many cases that the SEC brought against fraudulent traders, lenders, and investors. She worked for the SEC from 1999-2007. She was also Head of Enforcement for 3 years during this period.
In 2007, the other shoe finally dropped when it came to the housing market. Morrison saw a decline in the trust level that the general public had with investment professionals. Thieving and conniving lenders and investors had propped up the housing market on bad loans. These loans failed and the housing market collapsed. This caused the public to look at the bankers as untrustworthy. Morrison saw this problem and began working with Hall Capital Group in the private sector in an effort to help restore the general public’s faith in the market.
One of the primary reasons that she chose Hall Capital is that the San Francisco-based investment firm is run completely by women. This investment company is also one of the most successful financial groups in the entire state of California. Her long career working in financial regulations gives her clients the peace of mind that comes with knowing that they are working with someone that will work in their best interests while still staying within the rules.
Morrison is one of the most successful people working in the Northern California Financial Sector over the last 30 years. She has built a long career off of enforcing the laws surrounding finance that help keep the playing field fair for everyone involved. She has also taken this knowledge into the private sector to help revive the attitude towards investing that the everyday person has towards the financial industry in California.
Doe Deere is the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Lime Crime Cosmetics. She was Born in Russia & raised in New York City. Doe believes that ruling with an iron fist is old fashioned and that it does not inspire respect in a leader. She strives to drive and uplift people to succeed through positive reinforcement. Doe is on a mission to prove that cosmetics are a form of self-expression and freedom. She believes that cosmetics do more than just conceal imperfections. To Doe, beauty isn’t what “looks best” or “natural” but rather what feels right at the moment. With that in mind, in 2008, she launched and developed her line of magical, colorful, and cruelty-free cosmetics. The line, Lime Crime, is an intensely vibrant, bold, and pigmented line of animal-friend cosmetics with an international following of fans. The Lime Crime name was given birth from Doe’s favorite color as well as her dream to develop nail polishes, eye shadows, and lipstick so bright and vivid that wearing them might as well be illegal.
As a person who started out minuscule and achieved greatness on her terms, Doe is an active supporter of businesses owned by women and entrepreneurship endeavors. She frequently speaks on the subject of following your ambition and finding your voice at public events such as Vegas Stardust Tour and PHAMExpo. Doe adores welcoming other aspiring female entrepreneurs and encourages them to contact her for advice through her social media pages. In 2004, she registered a new account on eBay called lime crime. She modeled everything herself and wanted the whole look to be on brand. Therefore, colorful makeup became her staple. The idea of a make-up brand originated back in her sewing days simply because she found the unusual and bright colors were hard to find. She launched Lime Crime in the year 2008.
Lime Crime began their Unicorn Lipsticks in 2009 making them the first company to introduce primary and distinct lip colors to the market. All of the products have been free of cruelty since it was the inception in 2008. Since most of the items were Vegan from the very start, Lime Crime reformulated the others to meet standards of the Vegan in 2012. As the CEO and owner of Lime Crime, Deere checks overall product development life cycles. She does so with her Unicorns in mind, who are her biggest inspiration source. Doe Deere is a highly respected influencer in the beauty industry since she denied quitting her dream, and instills motivation in female entrepreneurs to follow the same route.
Doe’s most important role model is Kimberly Gordon, the creative brain behind Wild Fox. Like her, Kimberly started out with a passion. In Gordon’s case, the clothing was to be comfortable with a vintage twist. Lime Crime and Wild Fox launched around the same period and appealed to a similar customer type.

Compliance officer’s profession still remains largely undefined to many people despite the profession’s crucial role in the corporate wellbeing. It should not ring alarm bells in your head if you do not know what the job entails. The profession is still fairly new and it is only now that it is gaining in prominence.
As explained by the CEO of the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics, Roy Snell, as the title goes, Compliance Officers are required to take charge of compliance programs to prevent, find and fix ethical and regulatory problems. There are a number of tools at the disposal of Compliance Officers to execute their mandate which include audits, risk assessments, investigation and education. In the case that a problem is found, the officers fix it and sufficient measures taken to prevent any future occurrence of a similar problem. If need be, say in the case of negligence, discipline is administered.
The important role played by the profession has made it gain traction over time. In the last 20 years since the profession came to being, it has grown from zero to the currently tens of thousands of compliance officers. The growing demand for compliance officers also promises further growth of the profession.
The prospects too appear promising. Compliance officer’s profession was recently voted as among the leading with the best opportunity for advancement. This is especially true in the heavily regulated industries like gaming, insurance and banking whose all other positions must refer to compliance officers for any formidable decision.
Compliance Officers impact positive change in the corporate industry. This is through injecting a fresh dose of insanity in business and taking ethics to the next level. Unlike in the past where, if the regulatory authorities did not catch up with an illegal business practice, one would consider it within the ‘allowable’ business practice, compliance officers proactively seek out of ways of ‘panel-beating’ business practice proactively.
Helane Morrison is your model of a standard Compliance Officer. She is the Chief Compliance Officer of Hall Capital Partners LLC. Since the time she joined the company in 2007, she has raised the compliance a higher level – perhaps explaining why very few if not zero cases lie in court implicating Hall Capital Partners LLC in non-compliance issues.
Morrison is one of the few people who has a rich profile of serving both as a lawyer for private entities contesting against tough measures imposed by the authorities; heading the authorities at SEC as a Regional Director; and now taking a front seat in streamlining compliance at Hall Capital Partners LLC. A rare gem for the position
