Update: Position filled.
Knowles Corporation (NYSE: KN) has engaged Evers Legal on an exclusive basis to handle all sourcing for the following position:
Associate General Counsel & Assistant Corporate Secretary, reporting to the General Counsel and with board level visibility. Ideal candidate will be 10 to 15 years out of law school with experience that includes a focus on SEC public reporting and disclosure. Candidates must have current or past experience working in a corporate law department for a publicly traded company. The winner will be someone who has advised executives and boards on corporate governance best practices.
While this is primarily a securities position, the role includes a healthy dose of interesting M&A work (approx. 20%), some commercial transactions, and some compliance. It can be an ideal position for someone who seeks the kind of resume building role that will lead eventually to a GC opportunity. Or, it can be a long-term and potentially top of career move for an in-house securities attorney who will relish the role.
Compensation on this is very strong, with at-market base and bonus plus an attractive equity component. Local candidates preferred.
