Ruthie Wahl – Ninepoint Partners

Ruthie Wahl has never been one to follow the herd. Which seemed to be the way of things for so many Canadian asset management firms early last year. That’s when Canadian financial regulators cleared the way for retail investors to delve into liquid alternative funds that encompass asset classes ranging from hedge to real estate, […]

Kathryn Rookes – Atticus Franchise Group

Efficiency’s at a premium when one person comprises the legal department of a company that owns or operates three very different types of franchises. Case in point: The Atlanta-based Atticus Franchise Group that at last count had interests in 121 locations of Massage Envy, Maaco and Wingstop franchises. It’s anticipating the addition of around 80 […]

David Goldwin – UATP

Imagine you are a Bulgarian citizen looking to book a flight to Texas. Going online to get your ticket electronically, you hope the airline website will allow you to pay in your native Bulgarian levs. And … it does. For that, you can thank UATP and its Chief Legal Officer David Goldwin. Based in Washington, […]

Ricardo Hernández – Bolsa Nacional de Valores de Costa Rica

Though his favorite novel is “Don Quixote,” Ricardo Hernández prefers not to tilt at windmills as legal director for the Costa Rica stock exchange. Called the Bolsa Nacional de Valores de Costa Rica, the stock exchange is a nerve center of the nation’s economy where investors can contribute to economic growth while also benefitting from […]

Angela Petrucci – NBH Bank

In the four and a half years since Angela Petrucci joined Denver-based NBH Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Bank Holdings Corp., the organization has surpassed a quarry’s worth of milestones. It established itself as a publicly-traded company. It converted to a Colorado state-chartered bank in 2016. It acquired two banks in 2017. It refined […]

Nicole Macarchuk – Angel Island Capital

Bigger isn’t always better. Need proof? Look no further than Nicole Macarchuk and the team at Angel Island Capital (AIC) in San Francisco. Named for one of the Bay Area’s most treasured landmarks, the alternative investment firm doesn’t boast quite the assets of its more seasoned rivals. But that’s not stopping the firm from forging […]

Scott Shepherd – ScaleFactor

The clichés would have ScaleFactor Chief Legal Officer Scott Shepherd landing on his feet, his boots on the ground as the Austin, Texas, company embarks on a new round of growth. And indeed, the clichés are true, as Shepherd becomes the company’s first in-house attorney, bringing a combination of military and legal experience with him […]

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. He fully expects the firm will get a clean bill of health, given the attention his team devotes to improving operations. After 30 years in the industry, Repp, the general counsel at the Chicago-based […]

John G. Saia – WageWorks

He essentially worked his way out of a desirable position, even hastening his departure, by streamlining the process that resulted in WageWorks being absorbed last summer by HealthEquity Inc., which is headquartered in the Salt Lake City suburb of Draper, Utah. John G. Saia remains anchored in the Bay Area where many professional opportunities would […]
