By Pavithra R
Visa has announced the appointment of General Counsel Kelly Mahon Tullier to the newly created position of Executive Vice President (EVP), Chief Legal and Administrative Officer. Kelly Mahon Tullier will continue to report to Chairman and CEO, Al Kelly.
Subsequently, Julie Rottenberg, Deputy General Counsel and Chief Counsel for North America, was appointed to succeed Tullier as General Counsel and Senior Vice President (SVP). Rottenberg will report to Tullier and will also become a member of Visa’s Executive Committee.
Tullier joined Visa in June 2014 as EVP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary. In her new role, she will continue to oversee Legal and Compliance, while taking on responsibility for managing 2 additional functions, Global Communications and Corporate Services, which includes Corporate Real Estate, Aviation, Security and Global Events.
Prior to joining Visa, Tullier worked at PepsiCo as SVP and Deputy General Counsel. Before that, she was Vice President and General Counsel for Frito-Lay. Earlier in her career, she was an associate at Baker Botts and also served as a law clerk for the Honorable Sidney A. Fitzwater, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas.
“In the nearly seven years that Kelly has led Visa’s Legal and Compliance team, she has proven her ability to build and sustain a consistently high-functioning organization. Kelly is a trusted advisor and results-driven leader who has shown that she can take on responsibility outside of her core strength of Legal and Compliance. With this newly expanded remit, Kelly will play an even more valuable role in advancing our business and representing our company externally with our range of stakeholders,” said Al Kelly, Chairman and CEO.
Julie Rottenberg joined Visa in the litigation team 13 years ago, later becoming Deputy General Counsel and Chief Counsel for North America. Previously, she was a partner at Arnold & Porter and served as a law clerk to the Honorable Robert Beezer, U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, and the Honorable Samuel Wilson, U.S. District Court, Western District of Virginia.
“Throughout her Visa tenure, Julie has provided excellent legal leadership to a wide range of issues that affect our business globally. Julie’s combination of sound counsel and strong business acumen is a huge asset. She has guided our organization steadily over the years, and we are grateful for her expertise and leadership,” added Kelly.
