Reputation has named Shannon Hernández (pictured) as the company’s general counsel and corporate secretary. In this role, Hernández will draw on her extensive experience leading in-house teams and serving as a strategic advisor to global software and SaaS companies to oversee all legal areas for Reputation, including strategy, commercial, IP and privacy during a period of rapid growth.
Hernández will leverage her history of helping companies scale for global success through key technology and integration partnerships, strategic alliances and M&A. She will also focus on building and leading a best-in-class legal team to support the company’s growth initiatives.
Hernández joins Reputation from Sophos, where she served as Assistant General Counsel and Interim General Counsel. While there, she led the legal teams handling go-to-market legal strategy, complex commercial and technology transactions, product counseling and M&A, and oversaw the company’s $4 billion acquisition by a private equity fund.
Before Sophos, Shannon led the legal team at Symantec responsible for supporting Symantec’s enterprise software, SaaS and hardware groups with respect to product legal strategy, complex licensing, technology partnerships and M&A.
“Shannon has a demonstrated track record of building scalable, performance-oriented legal teams and key industry partnerships – she is a valuable asset for Reputation,” said Joe Fuca, CEO of Reputation. “Shannon’s deep working knowledge of the enterprise SaaS space, a passion for technology, and extensive global legal experience is exactly what our company needs to further cement our success as a built-to-last organization.”
