Jeanette Teckman – Match Group

For 25 years, Match Group has been bringing people together by putting a tech-savvy spin on traditional matchmaking.

James M. Fisher II and Kevin E. Broyles – FisherBroyles

Quite the jump the FisherBroyles law firm had on the competition as far as remote operations are concerned. Its widely distributed 265-plus lawyers and support staff haven’t reported to an office since 2002, when founders and managing partners James M. Fisher II and Kevin E. Broyles deemed a physical facility dispensable. No need for lavish […]

Cathy Konwisarz – National Energy Services Reunited Corp.

There’s nothing like a perfect storm breaking as you start a new job, particularly one in which personal and professional relationships are vital. So says Cathy Konwisarz, who had just a few days in the office to get the lay of the land after joining international oilfield services provider NESR as its first general counsel […]

Jared Sine — Match Group

Imagine, after months of enduring COVID-19-induced cabin fever, the restrictions are lifted. It’s time to get back out and socialize. After scrolling through a few profiles, you and a match make plans to connect for a fresh-squeezed juice. When you finally meet him, however, the vibe is all wrong. Something about him seems off, and […]

Luke E. Alverson – CSW Industrials

There they were, six companies spun off by Capital Southwest Corp., in the fall of 2015 and coming together under a new standalone called CSW Industrials (CSWI). Though all industrially focused, they had operated independently with little, if any, interaction among their leadership teams. Now they were to comprise the main pillars of a new, […]

Linda Ellis – Tinker Federal Credit Union

These are things that should be learned early, says Linda Ellis. Opening a savings or checking account, building credit and understanding a credit report, and borrowing money—all are essential lessons that should be taught as early as middle school, long before any financial decisions students make as young adults. “It was something that was greatly […]

Jeffrey Simmons – GlobalTranz

A pandemic notwithstanding, consumer goods must still be delivered by the big rigs and railroads, and some entity has got to manage the logistics for around 25,000 corporate customers throughout North America. Scottsdale, Arizona-based GlobalTranz remains open for business as a cloud-based enabler of the national supply chain. Kind of an Expedia for freight, it […]

Kristin Caldwell – LaCalle Group

When COVID-19 broke across the United States this spring, there was one thing that the team at LaCalle Group had little trouble adjusting to: working remotely. It’s certainly been useful for the parent company of virtual online educational learning sites. Operating remotely, it’s home to AudiologyOnline, SpeechPathology.com, OccupationalTherapy.com, PhysicalTherapy.com, continued Early Childhood Education and Simucase. […]

Andy Iverson – American Bath Group LLC

There are some things in life everyone needs. A bathroom, for example. Moving from the construction and energy industries to a once family-owned now multibillion-dollar business, Andy Iverson says he was a perfect match to serve as general counsel for American Bath Group, a fast-paced manufacturing company looking to change the bathware industry. “I get […]

Jennifer Crawford – Medici

When Jennifer Crawford became the general counsel at Medici in early 2019, she knew there’d be a lot of moving pieces—both inside the company and within the wider healthcare industry. Since then, those pieces have only multiplied. A pandemic can have that effect on a telehealth startup, after all. But with the challenge of COVID-19 […]
