Heather Russell isn’t an easy woman to pin down to a single role. She’s most well known today for her role as Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer at TransUnion. But that position is the culmination of quite a bit more work. In fact, one can see the life path she’s taken even from the earliest years.
The best example of this comes from her work as a law clerk. One can take quite a bit from this position. She served under the Honorable Claude M. Hilton. He himself carried the title of Chief Judge of the US District Court in the Eastern District of Virginia. Her passion for the work became clear when looking at how quickly she rose in the ranks. The position as clerk lasted for about a year. This carried her from 1997 to 1998. By then she was ready to push forward. See more here about Russell as new CLO of TransUnion.
The next seven years, as per crunchbase.com, would be spent as council to Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and Affiliates. Seven years might not seem like much in the greater scheme of things. But one needs to keep in mind the initial progression that Heather Russell had shown. One thing is clear from this and later positions. If she’s spending a great deal of time on something, than it’s of great importance.
By 2008 she’d moved on to BNY Mellon. She focused on her work on the Global Chief Regulatory Counsel. And to be more specific, she dealt with the Head Office of Public Policy & Regulatory Affairs. However, her biggest move forward before the present day comes from becoming partner at Buckley Sandler LLP. She’s also a math professor.
But by the present day she’d have done something even more remarkable than anything before. Heather Russell would become the Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer at TransUnion. It’s a position that she, and fellow Chicago residents, can be proud of. And one can see from her career path that she’s bound to bring continued excellence to that position.
