Nick Popper – Spectris Inc.

Nick Popper told his boss long ago: as long as the work stays challenging, he’ll stick around. So far, he’s kept to his word, with no shortage of projects and programs to administer at Spectris plc’s U.S. operation. It’s there that Popper’s provided guidance as chief counsel of the Americas for the multifaceted global testing […]

Tommaso Di Chio – Kambi

Like any athlete looking for a competitive edge, it was all about positioning. The U.S. was not the only nation that did not allow wagering on many sports, but it was one of the largest, thanks to the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act passed in 1992. But as casino gambling grew and online […]

Mauro Del Noce – Mindray

Mauro Del Noce isn’t the first—or even the most famous—Roman to come to Great Britain (that nod goes to Julius Caesar), but that isn’t stopping him from laying down his own brand of law. As general counsel for the European arm of Chinese global medical device manufacturer Mindray, Del Noce is helping establish the company’s […]

Christopher Parent – Johnson Controls

It’s been a new product line, as well as geographical base, since last summer when Christopher Parent took his skills in intellectual property from the Nintendo of America legal department to Johnson Controls. The former, of course, is a Japan-based company noted for consumer electronics as well as such video games as The Legend of […]

Natalia Tacsan – SYKES Enterprises Inc.

Maybe you have a question about a bill. Or perhaps you’re unsure how to use your cell phone or you don’t understand your health insurance coverage. You call the provider or go online to get help. When you do, the response has probably been outsourced to a company like SYKES Enterprises Inc., which takes on […]

Pablo Javier Del Pozo – CenturyLink

Pablo Javier Del Pozo’s legal work in Latin America has three things in common with his favorite German vintage cars, which—if you’re curious—is a tossup between an Audi A4 1.8T Quattro and a BMW 328i xDrive…  Like those autos, his professional responsibilites are  fast and sometimes furious,high-performing  and operating with utmost precision. On the job, […]

Lucia Villamil Mariatti – Roche

Growing up in Uruguay, Lucia Villamil Mariatti wasn’t sure which education path would lead to her true passion. It wasn’t until matriculating as a law student and discovering administrative law that she realized what she was passionate about: fostering ethics and humanity within the business world. The subject “motivated me because it goes towards the […]

Pedro Pablo Barragan – Jose Cuervo

Timing being critical in all matters stock-related, it didn’t seem ideal for Jose Cuervo when the world’s best-selling tequila distiller was again preparing its initial public offering in early 2017. The world’s political situation could be politely described as uncertain, especially as far as U.S.-Mexican relations were concerned, and if there’s one factor that renders […]

Michael Novak – SCD

As a paratrooper in the Israeli military, Michael Novak had no qualms about leaping out of planes at 13,000 feet. Maybe it was the fearlessness that only an 18-year-old could possess or the beauty of the experience itself: freefalling quietly through the sky, time itself seeming to stand still. Whatever the attraction, there’s nothing like […]

Nitzan Hadad – Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.

Nitzan Hadad knows something about creativity. He uses it when guiding his three sons through the intricacies of pitching a tent on fishing trips. He used creativity to shepherd 60 troubled youth through tough times at an Israeli boarding school, and he applies it every day to Teva’s broad legal terrain. “Creativity is important in […]
