Legal/Compliance Employee Profile
Business Area: Corporate
Years at The Principal: 15 years
The benefits, perks and work environment at The Principal are top-notch. With the rising price of gas, my checkbook hasn’t been as impacted thanks to the company’s transportation subsidy. For nearly 12 years, I’ve been participating in a Rideshare car pool and have taken advantage of the subsidy The Principal offers to mass transportation users. That’s just one way the company helps protect the environment.
There’s always a different challenge and an opportunity to learn something new. As a senior paralegal analyst, I assist our senior securities counsel and other attorneys on our securities team. Simply put, I provide legal research and manage the response to legal requests for information related to our registered and variable products.
While I currently support the legal team for our securities products, I’ve had the opportunity to work on corporate and insurance topics as well. One of my greatest accomplishments while working at The Principal has been overseeing the due diligence efforts of the company’s acquisition of BT Australia several years ago. It was a tremendous opportunity to gain exposure to an international acquisition.
I’ve also been able to participate in and lead the company’s Disability Employee Resource Group. I’m thankful for the company’s support and encouragement of our employee resource groups. As a father of a disabled daughter, this network has been invaluable to my family.
