Jeffrey Simmons – GlobalTranz

A pandemic notwithstanding, consumer goods must still be delivered by the big rigs and railroads, and some entity has got to manage the logistics for around 25,000 corporate customers throughout North America. Scottsdale, Arizona-based GlobalTranz remains open for business as a cloud-based enabler of the national supply chain. Kind of an Expedia for freight, it […]

Jennifer Turner Harrigan – Symphony Talent

Mention a certain, locally based national health and wellness organization to folks in the greater Pittsburgh area, and most of them will know exactly who you’re talking about. The second largest integrated delivery and financing system in the country, the organization employs more than 40,000 people, making it one of the region’s largest employers. Dynamic […]

Julia Hanft – Speedcast Government

This is not likely the twilight of Julia Hanft’s legal career, but her shift into an advisory role at Speedcast Government is as close as she’s come to hitting a pause button in 30 years. Hanft is now legal counsel for the company that bought Globecomm Systems Inc. in February 2019, advising it on its […]

Jeffrey Gautsche – MTX Group Inc.

Jeffrey Gautsche jokes that his greatest challenge at MTX Group Inc. is keeping pace with founder Das Nobel’s vision for expansion.

In his role as chief intellectual property counsel (IP) for Tenneco—and upcoming Tenneco spinoff […]

Jeff Hartwig – Dotdash (formerly About.com)

Never say never to this guy Jeff Hartwig, because he makes a habit out of making the impossible possible. When this former punk rocker got a little tired of the steady diet of music people, endless gigging, and the “scene,” he walked away from a record contract. Intellectually curious, it crossed his mind to become […]

Jared Hunsaker – Entrata

When he first arrived at Entrata’s cramped corporate headquarters, then located on the dimly lit second floor of a credit union in Salt Lake City’s outskirts, Jared Hunsaker—the company’s sixtieth hire—had to share his cubicle with another coworker. Today, the seasoned general counsel is one of more than 1,600 employees. Meanwhile, the company’s revenue has […]

John Geschke – Zendesk Inc.

Time was when John Geschke would apply his mix of legal and business acumen at a couple of prestigious firms in Palo Alto, California, structuring complex deals for blue-chip clients, but never really knowing the long-term impact of his services. Once the deal was sealed, there’d be another one pending. For Geschke, that’s how it […]
