Steve Kramer – Association of Oil Pipe Lines

Here’s a common misconception about lobbying associations: They have a set number of issues to work on, and they can usually predict what’s next on the horizon for their members. That’s not the case when you are the eyes and ears in Washington for an industry that’s undergone rapid change and now attracts much attention […]

Stefania Geraci – Grassi & Co.

During her time as General Counsel for the North American arm of Italian eyewear giant Luxottica, Stefania Geraci’s duties covered just about every conceivable legal base: contracts, compliance, intellectual property (IP), mergers and acquisitions (M&A), real estate, litigation, risk management, health care—you get the idea. That she oversaw all these functions at a company long […]

Stephen Trowbridge – AngioDynamics

It’s perhaps the worst news anyone wants to hear when they go in for medical testing: you have cancer. But increasingly, pancreatic cancer patients have hope says Stephen Trowbridge, general counsel for Latham, New York-based AngioDynamics. The company, dedicated to vascular interventions and oncology, is developing its NanoKnife System, a first-of-its-kind technology that ablates cells […]

Salvo Vitale – US Wind

Out beyond the breakers, the 32 turbine towers will be sunk nearly 100 feet below the ocean floor and will rise above the water to the height of a 49-story building. The turbines and slow-spinning blades are part of the first Maryland Offshore Wind Project, built to power the state with renewable wind energy projected […]

Samuel Logan – Afiniti

Let’s say you’re on the phone with customer service for your cable company or cell phone provider; waiting on hold, rocking out to the Muzak. Typically, you’d be paired up with the next available representative. But in this instance, algorithms working behind the scenes use data about you and the agents on duty to create […]

Sunjay Mathews – DAZN

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Don’t shy from changing on the fly. So sums up the modus operandi of Sunjay Mathews, the head of legal for the North American division of DAZN, a burgeoning sports-streaming network that threatens to disrupt the viewing status quo around the world. “Don’t be afraid to cut the cord,” he […]

Sam Germana – Trinitas Regional Medical Center

Over the last 20 years, few industries have endured more upheaval—both good and bad—than health care. From quantum leaps in technology and data gathering to unprecedented security threats, the landscape that providers have navigated has ceaselessly shifted, often to the point of quaking beneath their feet. Ask Sam Germana, however, and he’ll tell you there’s […]

Sophia A. Muirhead – The Conference Board

It has published research critical to the adoption of eight-hour workdays and lobbied for employment of African-Americans and the disabled. President Woodrow Wilson asked for its help in resolving labor disputes during WWI. Its seminal findings on industrial pollution were incorporated into the first policies of the federal government’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the […]

Stacey Hanna – Lonza

Throughout her first 17 years in the legal world, Stacey Hanna had been no stranger to the interview process. If anything, given her growing roles and titles, she’d become something of an ace. Only, it’s a bit different when the person across the desk has to decide not whether to hire you, but whether to […]

Sumiko Kanazawa – Mizuho Trust & Banking Co.

She might have met with the IT department to talk about system consolidation first thing in the morning. After lunch, perhaps it was reviewing proposals and contracts with the business department. Later that evening a call with the bank’s headquarters in Tokyo, where the next day’s business had already begun. In the months it took […]
