Amii Barnard-Bahn's picture

I’m an executive coach who specializes in accelerating the success of legal and compliance executives and their teams. 

A leadership columnist for Compliance Week and Fellow at the Harvard Institute of Coaching, I previously shaped company culture and strategic initiatives as an executive (CAO, Chief Compliance Officer, and Chief Human Resources Officer) at companies such as McKesson and Allianz. I advise organizations on how leaders create ethical workplaces -- exceptional workplaces that out behave and outperform the competition.

Forbes was kind enough to call me “one of the top coaches for legal and compliance executives.”

I earned my law degree from Georgetown University Law Center and my BA from Tufts. I have previously served as an adjunct member for law school faculty and present frequently to associations such as The Conference Board and SHRM affiliates. Please see Accomplishments - Projects section below for my speaking engagements.

A graduate of the Hudson Institute of Coaching, I’m a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coach Federation.

I work to ensure that women have a platform for their unique challenges and perspectives. A lifelong diversity advocate, I testified in multiple legislative committees on the successful passage of California's SB826, the first law in the U.S. requiring corporate boards to include women. Outside of my business, I am active in supporting the arts as a way to bring people together and bridge differences to cultivate deeper understanding. A member of the nomination-only Women Business Leaders of the Healthcare Industry Foundation, Amii serves on multiple non-profit boards, is a member of the Bay Area 2020 Women on Boards Committee and an active member of the California State Bar.​
