Expert on sustainable supply chains to oversee CREATe Leading Practices, a comprehensive
program helping companies address IP protection and Anti-Corruption
WASHINGTON, D.C., March 5, 2013 - The Center for Responsible Enterprise And Trade (CREATe.org) today announces the appointment of Craig Moss as Chief Operating Officer.
At CREATe.org, Moss will apply his expertise in sustainable supply chain management systems to oversee the development and deployment of CREATe Leading Practices, a comprehensive program designed to help companies and their supply chains reduce the risks associated with trade secret theft, counterfeiting, piracy and corruption.
Moss comes to CREATe.org from Social Accountability International (SAI), where he led the development of the Social Fingerprint® Program, a process-based set of ratings, training and tools used to measure and improve labor standards performance in companies and their supply chains. He also has developed supply chain guides for companies and organizations including the United Nations and International Finance Corporation (World Bank Group).
"Craig has extensive experience working with corporations and supply chain members to implement management systems to improve compliance. This expertise is tremendously relevant as CREATe.org rolls out CREATe Leading Practices to companies seeking to protect their IP and prevent corruption in their organizations and extended networks," stated Pamela Passman, President and CEO of CREATe.org.
In addition to managing the delivery of CREATe Leading Practices in multiple languages (English, Chinese and Brazilian Portuguese) across diverse industry sectors and geographies, Moss will also oversee CREATe`s global network of qualified experts, who work with companies and suppliers on evaluations and improvement plans.
Previously, Moss founded Global Access Corporation, where he led more than 3,000 international business development projects in 50 countries, with a focus on emerging markets.
Founded in October 2011, The Center for Responsible Enterprise And Trade (www.CREATe.org) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping companies and their suppliers and business partners reduce counterfeiting, piracy, trade secret theft and corruption.

By partnering with governments, academia, non-profits, think tanks and associations, we hope to amplify the work of each. To achieve our shared goals, we have developed CREATe Leading Practices for IP Protection and CREATe Leading Practices for Anti-Corruption. Our offering includes practical, scalable and cost-effective online assessments, independent evaluations, training and other resources designed to benchmark and improve processes for safeguarding IP and preventing corruption.
