How has your Lead Virginia experience influenced or shaped you as a leader?
I have lived in Virginia for over 33 years and my work has been primarily focused in the Northern Virginia region. While I interact with state officials and my workforce board counterparts throughout the Commonwealth, Lead Virginia really opened the door to the scope and complexities of the entire state. Through my Lead Virginia experience, I was able to see firsthand the areas of the Commonwealth I had never had the opportunity to visit or work in before. I learned the varying regional economies of the state create tremendous diversity of interests and challenges, and where public policy solutions need to be flexible and adaptable. Lead Virginia clearly enhanced my respect and admiration for the entire Commonwealth.

General Counsel
Virginia Bankers Association

What is new and exciting with you now or since your LEAD VIRGINIA class year?

Six months ago, I joined the Virginia Bankers Association as General Counsel. In my new role, I serve as the primary legal counsel for the VBA and its for-profit affiliates, which include an insurance agency, an employee benefits company, several title insurance agencies and a management services company. My duties include: (i) helping our member banks interpret and comply with banking laws and regulations; (ii) lobbying state and federal legislatures and regulatory agencies on behalf of the banking industry; and (iii) addressing the general corporate and transactional legal needs of the VBA and its for-profit affiliates. Previously, I was a partner at Hunton & Williams where my legal practice focused on corporate and securities transactions.

In addition, I recently joined the board of directors of the Children’s Home Society of Virginia, a full-service non-profit adoption agency that has been finding permanent loving homes for children, including special needs children, throughout Virginia for more than 100 years. In addition to serving on the board, I serve as chairman of the finance committee.

Finally, in all my spare time, I trained for and completed an ironman triathlon (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run) in October and lived to tell about it.
