Veta Richardson is taking on a new job as president and CEO of the Association of Corporate Counsel.
Richardson comes from the Minority Corporate Counsel Association, where she served as executive director since 2001, according to a press release. She replaces Frederick Krebs, who was president of ACC for 20 years. Krebs and Richardson worked together from 1997 to 2000, when Richardson was vice president and deputy general counsel at ACC.
The press release cites Richardson’s close ties to the in-house community, her interpersonal and leadership skills, and her leadership in diversity initiatives.
