M. Dru Levasseur – Lambda Legal

As if the legal education wasn’t stressful enough, M. Dru Levasseur had the additional challenge of transitioning from female to male while enrolled at the Western New England University School of Law in Springfield, Massachusetts, during the early and mid-2000s. “It’s a very individualized process,” says Levasseur, who would earn his juris doctorate in 2006. […]

M.A. Joaquim Ballès – Trudell Medical Limited

His long-time role as general counsel might have seemed consuming enough. But, as part of a Trudell Medical Limited executive team whose members are expected to handle multiple responsibilities, Joaquim Ballès’ position was expanded a couple of years ago to include a stronger hand in business development. It’s something this leader has relished at this […]

Madelon Kuchera – Earth Etch

A first-responder analogy seems appropriate for Madelon Kuchera who has built a professional life going where there’s the most disorder. That’s meant a lot of running toward, and making sense of, regulatory chaos confronting big-ticket industries. “Always go where there’s chaos in industry,” the good-natured Kuchera says with a laugh during a lively interview with […]

Malik Majeed — PRWT Services Inc. and U.S. Facilities Inc.

One of the things Malik Majeed loves hearing from employees, both past and present, is that PRWT Services Inc. “feels like family.” For Majeed, the president, CEO and general counsel for two Philadelphia-based companies—PRWT Services Inc. (PRWT) and its wholly owned subsidiary, U.S. Facilities Inc. (USF)—it’s a sentiment that’s both heartwarming and validating. One of […]

Mallory Garner – PennyMac Financial Services

Growing up, Mallory Garner remembers her parents encouraging her to become an attorney. Her father was a small business owner and wanted her and her brother to pursue professions that would always be in demand. “I was a strong writer and had a flair for the dramatic, so I chose law school,” says Garner, who […]

Water is life and make no mistake: Neither the COVID-19 pandemic nor massive protests for racial and social justice will interrupt its flow to Washington, D.C. People from all walks of life will have what they need to drink and bathe, says DC Water’s Marc Battle, the chief legal officer and executive vice president, government […]

Marc Jenkins – Asurion

“Transform the way the company works” was the directive given to Marc Jenkins when he arrived at work in January of 2018. Not that Nashville-based Asurion wasn’t working well; the privately held technology solutions provider being a successful $8 billion operation. But there’s always room for improvement in the areas of financial management, process improvement […]

Marc Nichols – Saab Defense and Security

On his first day as a market analyst for Chemical Bank, during an intensive management training program, Marc Nichols received the most important advice of his then-young career: Make every decision as if it’ll be on the front page of the New York Times, and the person you respect the most is reading it. Twenty-five […]

Marcela Inzunza – Boehringer Ingelheim

Being head of legal and compliance for Chile, Ecuador and Peru at Boehringer Ingelheim is demanding under normal circumstances, requiring Marcela Inzunza to meet rules and regulations while guiding the pharma company’s business development in three very different South American countries. It’s made all the more challenging by the COVID-19 pandemic and the pivot to […]
