Taking the reins at a credit Powerhouse such as TransUnion is not an easy job for any individual. But having a qualified background in banking and law, these are two qualities that will make the handling of day-to-day credit operations more tolerable. The powerhouse TransUnion has just received a jolt of inspiration and accomplishment with Heather Russell becoming the Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer.
As being one of the major three credit reporting agencies in the United States, TransUnion has a worldwide presence in over 30 countries. As being known for credit reports, credit repair, and credit disputes, TransUnion is often the go-to when banking decisions and housing decisions are to be made by companies at large. This is where Heather Russell shines forth because she has many years of banking experience and many years of legal experience. Upon first sight, it is to be noted that she has held awesome positions of banking with some of the nation’s biggest Banks. From Bank of America where she served as senior vice president and Associate General Counsel to her serving as the Global Chief Regulatory Counsel for the Bank of New York Mellon. She has a rather diverse history for all things monetarily and this will only serve to elevate her within the world of TransUnion itself.
According to TransUnion’s website, legal acuity stems from the famed law firm Buckley Sandler. Although Buckley Sandler has two firms between New York and Washington DC, Heather Russell made it her obligation to travel between both. With her determination and vision, she soon became a very valued party within the firm where she serves since 2016 as the head of Buckley Sanders Financial Institutions Regulations Supervision and Technology practice. While specializing in financial technology and banking, Heather Russell worked as an Adjunct professor at Boston University School of Law.
