Jim Zappa, Executive Vice President & General Counsel of CHS: The Informal but Effective Communicator

CLO Perspectives

Jim Zappa has always had a zeal for the art of communication. He even has a master’s degree in it (USC ’89). Yet he prides himself on his informal approach to leadership and exchanging information. As executive vice president and general counsel for Minnesota-based CHS, a Fortune 100 company with a unique farmer-owned cooperative structure, his approach has proved effective as he helps America’s rural farmers run their farms and businesses.

Recognize Your Top Performers with an ACC Executive Leadership Institute Nomination

23-26 July 2019 | Chicago, Illinois

The ACC Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) is an exclusive, one-of-a-kind master class for rising in-house counsel leaders who demonstrate promise to become general counsel during their career. Participants roll up their sleeves alongside leading global general counsel and corporate leaders for dynamic and interactive workshops, hypothetical exercises, and roundtable discussions taking their professional development to the next level.

"ELI was an incredible experience. The program's focus on executive relationships was spot-on, and my cohort of smart and successful in-house lawyers led to wonderful discussions and connections. I can't recommend ELI enough." --Scott T. Jarboe, 2018 ELI Fellow and Senior Vice President and General Counsel – Corporate, Peabody Energy Corporation

ELI 2019 will be held on 23-26 July, in Chicago, Illinois. For information on the 2019 nomination process, please contact Ramsey Saleeby at Assistant General Counsel & Senior Manager of Program Development at r.saleeby@acc.com or +1.202.791.3538.

Nominees must report directly to the highest-ranking legal officer of an organization, and hold a title such as deputy general counsel, associate general counsel, managing attorney or general counsel for a division, subsidiary or region of the organization.

The ACC Executive Leadership Institute strives to advance diversity and inclusion not just in terms of type and years of work experience and geographic location, but also race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and physical abilities. Please consider nominating a rising star from your team that furthers this goal.
