Angela Lozano – Title Forward

Anyone who’s been involved in a real estate transaction of any kind knows how cumbersome the process can be. There’s a lot of repetition and duplication, uncertainty and worry, all the way to the final sit-down, signing and transfer of title. But Title Forward—a wholly-owned subsidiary of Redfin—is working to revolutionize the title, escrow and […]

David Bouchner – Aggreko

Language differences notwithstanding, David Bouchner may have been the most valuable player in the 2007 Cricket World Cup for his off-field role as general counsel and negotiator of Houston-based North American affiliate of the U.K.-based global temporary power company, Aggreko. His ability to swiftly negotiate a complex contract enabled the games to be played in […]

David Foster – National Basketball Players Association

When you’re prosecuting organized crime rings by your mid-30s, representing one of the most visible districts of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, it’s worth wondering how much higher the lawyer’s ceiling can get—let alone the daily adrenaline rush.

But it’s there where the energetic and sometimes eccentric man thinks he […]

When she was 18, Almeida arrived at what would be her “alma mater” to take what she thought was a pre-university political science test. After notching one of the highest scores in her class, Almeida soon discovered she’d instead been enrolled […]
