Tajanae Mallett – Arjo Inc.

Tajanae Mallett remembers the moment when her life and career collided. As she stood inside a rehabilitation center where her mother was recovering from hip-replacement surgery, Mallett looked around the room and all of its contents—spacious, comfortable, replete with bells and whistles—and noticed something that landed like a revelation: there were products manufactured by her […]

Tamara Lesh – LTK Engineering Services

There may have been some latecomers to this station, but it now appears to be all aboard for expanded rail transit. Especially, it would seem, in major metropolitan areas where bumper-to-bumper vehicular traffic and its noxious emissions necessitate a change in what’s long been commuting as usual. All of which puts LTK Engineering Services on […]

Tammy Brandt – Dreamscape Immersive

With her crew’s interplanetary spacecraft safely landed, Tammy Brandt grabs a flashlight and points it towards the strange flora in front of her. A friendly-seeming amphibian—a kind of cat-frog hybrid—emerges from the shadows. Minutes later, a herd of massive dinosaurs passes by in the distance, right before a terrifying, toothed-and-clawed creature, eyes aglow and eager […]

Tanya Quiñonez – Honeywell Building Technologies

When Tanya Quiñonez was asked to lend legal support to one of Honeywell Building Technologies’ (HBT’s) most ambitious projects to date—an initiative that involved multiple stakeholders across the company—she jumped at the chance. There was, however, an important catch: she wouldn’t just be providing guidance on contracts and compliance; rather, it was her job to […]

Tara Plimpton – GE Global Operations

She seems to have seen the writing on the wall years ago. The virtual wall, that is. For upon becoming one of General Electric’s general counsels at a new Nevada division in 2002, Tara Plimpton suspected that corporate legal departments would be under pressure to become more strategic and increase quality while, at the same […]

Ted Prouty – Air Liquide

You wouldn’t know it, but if you’re sitting down with a glass of wine while chatting or texting on a cell phone, Ted Prouty’s work is helping make that possible. As Air Liquide’s Associate General Counsel–U.S., Prouty helps manage the risk and oversee the transactions that procure the Air Liquide gases that are components in […]

Teresa Villarreal Torres – Xignux

Tom Cruise’s portrayal of a military lawyer was the spark for Teresa Villarreal’s legal career, but Xignux has been the energy source to keep it running. As a girl growing up in Monterrey, Mexico, Villarreal loved courtroom dramas on the big screen, and Cruise’s role as Lt. Daniel Kaffee in “A Few Good Men” was […]

Thaddeus Stephens – The Myers-Briggs Co.

After more than 60 years of making personality assessments used to develop management and other soft skills, The Myers-Briggs Co. is adept at helping determine what motivates people. Yet it found itself in need of a self-assessment over the last couple of years, in its business models, its place in the corporate world, and in […]

The Donohoe Companies Inc.

How does a two-person legal team support one of the Washington D.C. area’s largest and oldest real estate development firms? It knows when to ask for help and isn’t afraid to outsource work to other law firms. While many in-house counsel justify their positions by bringing legal work in-house, thus reducing their outside counsel expenditures, […]

Thierry Valat De Córdova – Dominion Capital

The first thing you notice about Dominion Capital’s website—and it’s pretty much impossible to miss—is the high-definition video of a snow-covered peak. Occupying the entire homepage, the footage underscores the mountain’s power, stability and permanence. Asked about the significance of the imagery, Thierry Valat De Córdova, Dominion’s general counsel and chief compliance officer, poses a […]
