Adam Glick – Intercom

Finding a website is easy. Finding your way around one? Maybe not so much. But wait, there’s a message bubble in the lower right corner—someone is offering to help you with everything from a customer support question to making a purchase decision. Customer-messaging technology is getting better all the time, with live chat, bots and […]

Alvaro Gómez- Godoy – Grupo Rotoplas

It’s not something many Americans have to worry about, putting plastic containers on rooftops to ensure a reliable and constant supply of water. But to Alvaro Gómez-Godoy, and many people in Mexico City and throughout Latin America, its commonplace. That’s what makes his work as general counsel and compliance officer at Mexico City-based Grupo Rotoplas—a […]

Brandie Ekren – Lansing Board of Water & Light

They were once a sight as familiar as a milkman or mail carrier. Someone would pull up in a truck or van outside a building once a month, check the dials and numbers on the electric meter and drive off to their next stop. And while meter readers have yet to go the way of […]

Christian Roy – Groupe Dynamite

You may already know what you want from a Groupe Dynamite store after looking online, but do you know what else may be on sale to complement your fashion style? You’ll find out from texts or emails alerts, but they only show up as you park at the mall to shop at one of the […]

Christopher Reid Smith – BlueCrest

He came aboard at an exciting time, Christopher Reid Smith bringing his mix of legal and business acumen to BlueCrest last March, less than a year after the former Pitney Bowes division had been acquired by Platinum Equity and rebranded.

Customized solutions that are sophisticated and highly automated. GE Power Conversion finds itself in the midst of a paradigm shift in how the world views energy consumption, serving as an […]

Evan A. Michael – NFP

For most general counsels, shepherding four acquisitions over the course of a year would be a milestone. Evan A. Michael routinely oversees 10 times that number. As general counsel and executive vice president for NFP—one of the nation’s largest insurance brokers and consultants—Michael has made mergers and acquisitions the centerpiece of his 13-year-plus tenure at […]

George S. Springsteen – IFC Asset Management Company

The Middle East and Africa being under a torrid sun, it would seemingly make sense to tap renewable power from that gift from above, but such projects can carry a prohibitive price and limited financing options. Those obstacles notwithstanding, Dubai-based Yellow Door Energy raised $65 million early last year to proceed with deployment of lease-to-own […]

Gordon Repp – LaSalle Investment Management

Gordon Repp loves the sigh of relief that he hears when industry regulators conduct a routine audit at LaSalle Investment Management.
