Mirko Lalatovic has become Head of Compliance for South Eastern Central Europe at Fresenius Medical Care.
According to Lalatovic, FME is "the world’s largest producer of the kidney dialysis equipment and the largest private provider of dialysis treatment in the world; it is part of the Fresenius group, [which] has more than 277,000 employees worldwide."
Lalatovic was FME's Head of Compliance for Central and Northern Europe and Europe and the company's Middle East and Africa Compliance Coordinator for the production business. Before joining the company in 2015 he spent seven years in private practice with Kinstellar (in Bratislava and Belgrade) and another two years with DLA Piper. He graduated from the Faculty of Law at the University of Belgrade and received a Master’s degree from the University of Paris I Pantheon Sorbonne.
Lalatovic reports that FME is refining its organizational structure, allowing him to return to what he describes as his “natural part of Europe — the SECE region." At FME that region consists of 15 countries. According to him, “our goal is to do our business ethically and fully in line with the highest compliance standards and we need to have — and we do have — a strong and consistent compliance program." He explains that "the SECE region seems to be slightly more turbulent than some others, however, our ultimate goal is to promote compliance as a shared responsibility within our company, to support and advice our business and meet expectations from various authorities, having in mind the highly regulated industry in which we are market leaders.”
