Rachel Bays – Honeywell Aerospace Licensing and Working Capital

From the legal arguments that led to successful appeals of death penalty cases in Missouri, to the export and licensing of aerospace technology, Rachel Bays has researched a lot of laws. But while she’s great at hitting the books, Bays, an assistant general counsel for Honeywell Aerospace’s Licensing and Working Capital unit, likes to see […]

Daniel I. Puente – Grupo Cuprum

Since 1948, Grupo Cuprum has been supplying aluminum used to make products for the construction industry, auto parts, ladders and hospital beds. Based in Monterrey, it’s an enduring company with a network of plants and more than 70 retail stores and operations in Mexico, the United States and Canada. It’s also provided a wealth of […]

Luke E. Alverson – CSW Industrials

There they were, six companies spun off by Capital Southwest Corp., in the fall of 2015 and coming together under a new standalone called CSW Industrials (CSWI). Though all industrially focused, they had operated independently with little, if any, interaction among their leadership teams. Now they were to comprise the main pillars of a new, […]

David Butow – Trane Technologies

It’s called a Reverse Morris Trust, which occurs when a company spins off a division in order to merge it with another organization, the benefits including the tax-free transfer of a business. If it sounds complicated, it is indeed, assures David Butow, who for the past year has led his legal team’s efforts in such […]

Andy Iverson – American Bath Group LLC

There are some things in life everyone needs. A bathroom, for example.

Kristen Hughes – Elevate Textiles Inc.

When Kristen Hughes joined thread manufacturer American & Efird LLC as a corporate counsel in 2014, she didn’t have a five-year plan. Then again, if you told her she would be shepherding five acquisitions and would see an eventual promotion to full-on general counsel for the global company, she would honestly say she didn’t see […]

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 […]

William “Bill” Zak – Honeywell Aerospace

When it comes to helping aerospace and aviation companies take wing, Honeywell Aerospace has provided the systems for aircraft large and small all over the world. Now the Phoenix-based company is flying well above its engineering roots and into previously uncharted air: connected software to help its customers soar. That transformation—spearheaded by the Honeywell Connected […]

Divya Mehta – KONE

Getting her foot in the door was Divya Mehta’s first step toward a new job at KONE, allowing this marathoner to run with a new opportunity. Admittedly, Mehta says she wasn’t the ideal candidate for at the $8.9 billion global engineering company that manufactures elevators and escalators in 60 countries worldwide. She had no experience […]
