Angie Soety – American Management Services

It was Angie Soety’s plan when she stepped in as general counsel: get American Management Services as digitized and automated as possible to meet the demands—and expectations—of the 21st century. And then, COVID-19 hit. “It put everything on fast forward,” she says.

Matt Cameron – Akumin Inc.

No one looks forward to getting an MRI.

Robert W. “Robbie” Kamerschen – Aaron’s Inc.

After weeks of near-incessant racket, that clunking noise in the refrigerator finally stopped. Unfortunately, so did the refrigerator.

Hadiya C. J. Claxton knew what was in the bottles when she joined the McIlhenny Company—makers of the famed Tabasco brand pepper sauce—as its first chief legal officer and global general counsel, as well as its first African American corporate officer.
