Jordan Goodman – Mark Andy Inc.

Sometimes the circumstances are just right. Not long after Jordan Goodman relocated from Chicago to St. Louis, the investment group in which he was involved was looking to acquire the world’s leading manufacturer of narrow-web printing and finishing equipment. Following the acquisition, Goodman became the general counsel and vice president of human resources for the […]

Hugo Teufel III – Raytheon

As if helping the company navigate the challenges of social distancing and a freefalling economy weren’t enough, Hugo Teufel III has addressed privacy issues associated with one of the largest mergers in American history: that of the Raytheon Company and United Technologies Corporation. Completed in April, the $135 billion deal created the world’s second-largest aerospace […]

Jonathan Gulsvig – Professional Plastics

It was not something Jonathan Gulsvig’s parents ever printed on the T-shirts they made, but it might have been a nice fit. “We don’t need more attorneys, but every family should have one,” he recalls his mother telling him. As he watched his parents operate the family-owned apparel business started by his grandfather, his mother’s […]

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.

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. Moving from the construction and energy industries to a once family-owned now multibillion-dollar business, Andy Iverson says he was a perfect match to serve as general counsel for American Bath Group, a fast-paced manufacturing company looking to change the bathware industry. “I get […]

Joseph Tristine – Precision Resource

We all try to balance work life and home life, and there are those who achieve that balance by bringing family values into the workplace. That’s the approach taken by Joe Tristine, general counsel and chief HR officer for Precision Resource, a privately-owned global manufacturer of metal component parts. “Everything I do is for my […]

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.
