Albert Newell – DroneShield

It’s among the most moving of targets, literally and figuratively. The fledgling drone security industry in which an Australia-headquartered company known as DroneShield has been at the forefront—trying to keep the skies safe from carelessly operated or ill-intentioned unmanned aircraft. That’s given rise to a host of legal matters that, for the foreseeable future, might […]

Allen Chiu – Genesys

When you got the Google Calendar invite a few months ago—the one for 11 a.m. titled “Meet with Genesys Chief Compliance Officer Allen Chiu”—you figured the call would take 30 minutes. An hour, tops. Right at 11, the phone rings. It’s your assistant. “Allen Chiu is here,” she says. “Great!” you say. “Patch him in.” […]

Allyson Guy Krause – Promethean

Students have taken personalized tours of the White House, spoken with a park ranger halfway around the world on the topic of adaptation, and even tinkered with protons, neurons and electrons—without having to worry about blowing anything up. Those are just a few examples of how Promethean’s interactive educational products are being used in classrooms […]

Amer Moorhead – Tradeshift

Amer Moorhead’s extracurricular activity has something in common with his professional life. To a point, that is. You see, the 51-year-old man is an obsessive marathon runner, albeit one who’s been advised by two surgeons that his pavement-pounding days are slowing down. It seems that 67 marathons—and the training that went into each—have necessitated ACL, […]

Amy Morrissey – Computacenter US

It was a process that Amy Morrissey likened to setting up an arranged marriage, albeit one with billions of dollars on the line: evaluating potential suitors looking to buy her company. For 13 years, Morrissey had been the general counsel and corporate secretary at FusionStorm, an award-winning IT solutions provider based in Boston. There was […]

Anahi Llop – OLX Brazil

There it is: the wheels you’ve always wanted; a scarf that will make you look stylish while you drive; the handbag that brings the whole look together. And now, after endless online searches, you’ve finally found someone who’s selling them—not at retail, but as a gently used item that fits perfectly in your budget. For […]

Andrew Filler – Sherpa Technology Group

Self-quarantined and watching a lot of television? Maybe on an ultra high-def screen with COVID-19 dominating the news cycle? If so, welcome to the crowd, and you may want to acknowledge the impact one attorney is having on your new daily routine. In a good way, at that. He’s Andrew Filler, general counsel of California-based […]

Ashley Slavik – Veeva Systems Inc.

She’s traveled a long way for her home and career, but that was always part of the plan for Ashley Slavik. Although becoming a privacy thought leader was not her original objective, the chief privacy officer and lead data counsel for Veeva Systems Inc., is now known for her passion and expertise on a hot […]

Bert Kaminski – ServiceMax

Bert Kaminski had a choice to make. Not quite as nerve-racking as leaving private practice for the dot-com bubble before it burst, but close enough to cause a few sleepless nights: remain as chief commercial counsel at GE Digital, or jump ship to head the legal operations for a recently spun-off subsidiary. Once again, Kaminski […]

Charlotte Tart – Intelligent Medical Objects Inc.

As a hobbyist photographer, Charlotte Tart has a keen eye for knowing when things are out of focus—and a knack for bringing them back. In other words: an ideal skill for any modern general counsel, one that quickly came in handy when she joined Chicago area-based health care IT company Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO) in […]
