Legal ops group CLOC names 3 new board members from Microsoft, Gap, and Fidelity
The Corporate Legal Operations Consortium (CLOC) this week appointed three new members to its board: Jason Barnwell, assistant general counsel of Microsoft; Mike Haven, assistant GC and legal ops head of Gap, Inc; and Jamal Stockton, VP and legal innovation chief of Fidelity Investments.
The group also announced that a founding board member, Steve Harmon, is leaving the board. Harmon, deputy general counsel at Cisco and GC at Elevate, told Corporate Counsel back in November that he’d be leaving because he believed that a CLOC board member should not have close ties to any one vendor.
CLOC’s leadership has undergone changes recently. Co-founder Connie Brenton stepped down recently, reportedly over disagreements over whether the group should admit lawyers from private firms; she reportedly was in favor of the move.
“We are delighted to welcome Jason Barnwell, Mike Haven and Jamal Stockton as new Directors. Given the diverse backgrounds and impressive track-records of each of our new board members, I’m confident that their leadership will add a valuable perspective to our Board of Directors and to CLOC’s future growth,” said Mary O’Carroll, CLOC president. “We appreciate their willingness to serve as directors and look forward to benefiting from their judgment and counsel.”
