TransUnion, a worldwide leader in consumer credit reporting agencies based out of Chicago, IL with operations in over 30 countries is welcoming notable legal executive Heather Russell to the firm in the role of TransUnion’s Chief Legal Officer, Executive Vice-President, and Corporate Secretary. The CEO of TransUnion was ecstatic with the news of the sought after legal executive joining the TransUnion family by stressing her importance in executing the growth strategy of the company.

Heather Russell has always been a stand out performer in the legal field, even going back to her studies where she graduated ‘cum laude’ with her ‘Juris Doctor’ from the American University’s Washington College of Law in Washington, DC. She was also awarded the prestigious honor of being the ‘Most Outstanding Graduate’ of her class. She also served as the senior editor of the school’s ‘Law Review’. Her wealth of knowledge in the field of fin-tech and banking is so astounding that she worked as an adjunct professor at Boston University’s School of Law.

Heather comes to TransUnion with over two decades of experience in the field which included her being an integral part of the team at Buckley Sandler LLP; where she was part of the firm’s New York, NY office as well as the Washington, DC office. She was a valued partner of the firm and served as the head of Buckley Sandler’s Financial Institutions Regulation, Supervision & Technology (termed FIRST) which acted much like financial advisory firms and fin-tech (Financial Technology) firms did to their clients by providing consultation about future actions like mergers and helping them navigate tough waters like that of regulatory approval processes.

TransUnion brought in Heather Russell, who also served as the Global Chief Regulatory Counsel at Bank of New York Mellon, to replace retiring Corporate Secretary John Blenke who will be helping Heather Russell transition into the role and take the company forward to a new age.
