2023 Corporate Leadership Award To Go To Visa, Vice Chair Tullier and General Counsel Rottenberg
New York, NY – The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR), a global non-profit organization that helps others manage conflict so that they might better pursue their purpose, announced that Visa (V: NYSE) and Kelly Mahon Tullier, Vice Chair, Chief People and Corporate Affairs Officer and Julie Rottenberg, Executive Vice President, General Counsel will be the recipients of its 2023 Corporate Leadership Award (CLA) for leadership in dispute prevention and resolution.
The award, presented annually since 2004, honors corporations and their leadership that have demonstrated commitment to the field of dispute management and have institutionalized dispute management mechanisms into its corporate culture.
Visa is a leader in digital payments, facilitating transactions between consumers, merchants, financial institutions and government entities across more than 200 countries and territories. Tullier leads Visa’s People organization in addition to her responsibilities as Corporate Secretary, head of Global Communications, and Global Corporate Services. Rottenberg oversees Visa’s global Legal and Compliance function.
The company is a dedicated supporter of CPR’s work. Visa is a signatory to CPR’s Dispute Prevention Pledge for Business Relationships, which recognizes that disputes in business relationships impose costs and commits signatories to considering mechanisms to identify conflict early and to taking steps – through contractual, governance, third-party or other mechanisms – to mitigate that conflict before it hardens into a costly dispute. Recognizing the importance of deploying all of the available talent toward dispute management, Visa is also a signatory to CPR’s 2022 Diversity Commitment, which seeks to improve the selection of diverse neutrals serving on matters.
“We are so excited to celebrate these ADR champions. Visa, Kelly and Julie are leaders in the field. They have been quick to identify and embrace new ways of conducting business, including adopting new ways to prevent, manage and resolve disputes. This approach undoubtedly preserves relationships and allows Visa employees to stay focused on their world-wide business purpose,” said Allen Waxman, President and CEO of CPR.
“CPR’s work in dispute prevention and resolution is extremely important to Visa and businesses globally, so it’s an honor to be recognized for corporate leadership in this area,” said Mahon Tullier. “Our work with CPR allows us to focus our time on driving innovation and inclusion in digital payments globally. Enough cannot be said about the important work being done by this organization. Alongside Julie and Visa, it’s truly a privilege to be recognized by CPR this year.”
“I’m thrilled to be honored for this award alongside Kelly and Visa. Our work in dispute prevention and resolution is vital within an organization that is a leader in global digital payments,” said Rottenberg. “I am grateful to CPR for their efforts in this area and to be recognized for the CPR corporate leadership award this year.”
Past recipients of CPR’s Corporate Leadership Award include Amgen, AT&T, ConocoPhillips, CVS Health, DuPont, Ernst & Young, Ford Motor Company, GlaxoSmithKline, General Electric, General Motors, Hewlett-Packard, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Pfizer, Royal Dutch Shell, United Technologies, and 3M.
The award presentation will take place on June 13, 2023, at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City. This annual dinner draws attendees representing leading companies and their general counsel and other company leadership, partners from global and boutique law firms, and industry experts and scholars who come together to acknowledge the importance of dispute prevention and resolution.
