“The General Counsel has one of the most influential voices when it comes to driving the integrity of any organization. Increasingly, the GC involvement at the Summit demonstrates how the many conversations on corporate ethics and best practices are championed at the top of the executive team” said Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. “Stewardship of this kind is at a premium, and the General Counsel has one of the most challenging roles to play in helping the company advance and stay unified despite the myriad of challenges. These leaders are not just essential in moving the dialogue forward but they represent some of the most progressive thinking in the business world today. We could not be more pleased with the leadership that has elected to join us this year and the valuable insights they will offer the entire delegation.”
