IV Welcomes David Kris as General Counsel

January 13, 2011

We have new talent joining the ranks. IV President and COO Adriane Brown told us earlier today that David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, will be joining the IV team as General Counsel. Here’s an excerpt from Adriane’s email to the company:

David brings nearly twenty years of legal experience both in government roles and in the private sector. He has expertise in assessing legal risk while also taking into account operational efficiency.  In between positions at the US Department of Justice, David served as Deputy General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer for Time Warner where he developed an enterprise-wide ethics and compliance program for offices in more than 50 countries and provided counsel to executives regarding corporate legal risk and compliance.

With David’s experience, intellect and engaging personality, I’m certain he will effectively step into the role of General Counsel and lead our well-established legal department. David is well known for his ability to assess a situation from all angles and make decisions that bridge the gap between theory and practice. He is a strong leader, a bright lawyer and a great addition to the company.

You can read more about David’s contributions to the Department of Justice in this press release.

Welcome to the team, David!
