Jim Kastenmayer – Viela Bio

Imagine strolling through a park splashed with the greens, yellows and reds of trees, grass and flowers. The gravel or woodchips crunch underfoot as you enjoy exercise, sunshine and good health. And suddenly, you can’t see well or have trouble walking. It could be an attack of a terrifying and debilitating condition called neuromyelitis optica […]

Jennifer Chung – AccuWeather

For nearly 60 years, AccuWeather has belied one of Bob Dylan’s most iconic lyrics: “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” What began as a service in central Pennsylvania disseminating localized weather forecasts has blown up like an all-encompassing low-pressure front. Today, AccuWeather forecasts are found online, in print, over […]

James “Jamie” Wallace – Montauk Energy

It’s abundant, whether captured from decomposing garbage or cows.

Jeremy Reich – Unlimited Technology Inc.

How much simpler was the job, Jeremy Reich recalls, in 2014. Fresh out of Rutgers University with a law degree and MBA, the then-26-year-old became a one-man legal team at Unlimited Technology Inc. Five or six years ago, the Nutley, New Jersey-based security company was still focused on providing corporate, institutional and public-sector clients with […]

James Camire – Vecna

Sometimes the people behind the scenes of a corporate spinoff can step into a more prominent role even if they weren’t directly involved in the run-up. That’s seemed the case with James Camire and the expanded responsibilities he’s taken on at Vecna since last June. An associate general counsel since 2016, he wasn’t at the […]

Jill Hanson Rainford – Round Hill Capital

Differences may abound in the legal codes of the 20-plus jurisdictions where Jill Hanson Rainford oversees the legal interests of Round Hill Capital.

The United States and United Kingdom lean toward […]

Jordan Gurevich – vMOX

Growth-wise, this new year is looking more and more like a hockey stick to Jordan Gurevich. General counsel of vMOX in Roslyn Heights, New York, Gurevich anticipates his employer sustaining steady, organic expansion largely from its ability to save corporate clients a fortune in mobile telecommunication costs.

Joe Mazzarella – Mutualink

It’s a scene all too familiar and terrifying, with sirens blaring, lights flashing red and blue, as first responders race to another emergency at a school, mall, theater, place of worship or workplace. It may or may not be a worst case scenario when first responders arrive, but it’s also hard to tell what’s happening […]

Julie Delker – Phoenix Contact USA
