A ‘Herculean effort’ 

‘On the way to the awards I had a reflective moment,’ says Tracey Heaton, senior vice president and chief corporate counsel at Visa. ‘We have a team that is predominantly brand new with a CEO who is also new. The amount of complexity and urgency thrown at this team was enormous and, in the face of that, it continually took on more and hit it out of the park.’

In the last year, Visa’s governance team negotiated and closed the $20 billion cash and stock purchase of Visa Europe (the largest acquisition in the firm’s history), helped to form Visa Europe’s subsidiary board, revised many internal corporate governance policies and procedures, and contributed to a redraft of the company’s code of conduct and its first ever corporate responsibility report. Click here to continue reading on Corporate Secretary.
