Gabriel Hoyos – Under Armour

Like the sports teams that wear its high-performance apparel and footwear, Under Armour can experience streaks hot and cold. Often, to borrow from sports jargon, it must change on the fly, make a halftime adjustment or shuffle the lineup. Which is what its Latin American division has been doing—putting more emphasis on its products for […]

Gabriela Bogantes – Pfizer

Even for a kindergartner, the task was whimsical: use the boxes of costumes to dress up for your future job. While her classmates reluctantly rummaged through the various wares, blending careers like watercolor paints, Gabriela Bogantes went straight for the briefcase and necktie. Her teacher didn’t even bother to ask. “I always knew I wanted […]

Gail Sharps Myers: Senior Vice President and General Counsel with Snyder’s-Lance Inc.

Gail Sharps Myers started planning for her career early. When she was a child, it was astronaut, actress and lawyer that topped her list of prospective professions. “Eventually I realized I didn’t have the math skills to be an astronaut and being an actress was just not in the cards, but my uncle was a […]

Gary M. Stern – National Archives and Records Administration

When Hilary Clinton’s email scandal broke, lawsuits landed on Gary M. Stern’s desk. Stern is general counsel for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the agency that both stores permanent government records and sets the rules for what records federal agencies have to keep and for how long. Because NARA tells the State Department […]

Gary Spiegel – Anaplan

It was six months of head down, nose to the grindstone work. Preparing Anaplan for its IPO in October 2018—and simultaneously capturing the momentum of the software company and the economic climate—required that a core team be constantly assessing, researching and ticking off specific guidelines and checkpoints, all within tight timelines. In other words, explains […]

Gastón Tarabal – Peninsula Investments Group

It’s a trend he hopes continues in Latin America, both from a social and business perspective. Long known as a region beset by poverty, there’s a middle class growing slowly in many of the countries and with it the need for quality, middle-income multifamily housing in urban environments. And that’s where Gaston Tarabal’s employer is […]

GC Erin Bagley puts the “cover” in Coverys

Amidst the cacophony of the national health insurance debate—over who pays what and how; and of when liability comes into play—one voice always seems drowned in the din: that of practitioners providing the care. It’s a conundrum Erin Bagley knows only too well. As general counsel for Coverys, a medical professional liability insurer headquartered in […]

Gennaro Savastano – LGBT Bar Association of Greater New York

A teenager from a rural town kicked out of his home for coming out as gay. A trans employee fired from her job after management demanded she stop using the women’s bathroom. A mom in danger of losing custody because she’s a non-biological parent. Gennaro Savastano knows that many people who walk into one of […]

George Jurch – Continental

A proud Gamecock, George Jurch has attended alumni banquets at which the estimable Lou Holtz has spoken. “The best motivational speaker I ever heard,” says Jurch of the retired football coach whose years at the University of South Carolina were marked by a couple of Outback Bowl victories in the early 2000s. “Every time you […]

George Melo – Andron Construction Corp

For most first-time general counsels, the in-house learning curve can feel like scaling a building. Luckily, George Melo was still wearing his climbing gear. After nearly two decades in the world of private practice, much of it spent working in a “pseudo-GC capacity” of outside counsel for market sector leading commercial and business clients, Melo […]
