Adam Bean – Community Reach Center

Running a 600-employee nonprofit healthcare across 17 locations is a daunting task. It’s especially tough if the responsibility for tracking documentation falls to one person without the aid of a fully-staffed legal department. Having the leadership skills required is the main reason Chief Legal Officer Adam Bean says he was brought into Community Reach Center […]

Adam S. Frankel – NWN

A Boston area company that made its mark reselling hardware and managing data, NWN has transformed into a full-fledged technology service provider whose big-ticket clients include the State of California as well as nationally recognized healthcare providers and financial institutions. That, in turn, has meant an increased focus on data protection and privacy—and the assembling […]

Amy Morrissey – Computacenter US

It was a process that Amy Morrissey likened to setting up an arranged marriage, albeit one with billions of dollars on the line: evaluating potential suitors looking to buy her company. For 13 years, Morrissey had been the general counsel and corporate secretary at FusionStorm, an award-winning IT solutions provider based in Boston. There was […]

He’s Andrew Filler, general counsel of California-based […]

Barnes to its emergence as a global retailer under the ownership and leadership of Len Riggio. For the last 20 years, Brad Feuer has been part of that unfolding […]

Brian Baldrate – Raytheon

As a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, Brian Baldrate commanded his fair share of missions, many involving Abrams tanks—massive machines whose mobilization required impeccable coordination and constant communication. The tactics and terrains may have changed, but for Baldrate, general counsel for Raytheon’s international and Washington, D.C., operations, the aim remains the same: to […]

Bryn Sherman – Offit Kurman

Relationship-building isn’t always a given at major law firms. Attorneys are continuously tasked with moving from one case to the next, so they’re rarely able to offer the full gambit of services or truly gauge the effectiveness of advice rendered. Which is far from ideal, says Bryn Sherman, a principal at Maryland-based Offit Kurman, which […]
