IDEX Promotes Lisa Anderson to General Counsel
February 25, 2022
IDEX Corporation has promoted Lisa Anderson to the role of Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Corporate Secretary effective today. Lisa succeeds Denise Cade, who has accepted a new general counsel position in a different manufacturing sector.
“When joining IDEX six years ago, Denise set out to build an exceptionally strong team, cultivating present and future leaders. That part of her legacy is leading to a smooth succession to our next General Counsel,” IDEX CEO and President Eric Ashleman said. “With varied legal experience, combined with her foundations in business, Lisa is already a trusted adviser to colleagues across IDEX. Lisa’s ability to partner with others to solve complex legal and business issues is well known and appreciated all around our global company. She is well suited for this new role.”
Anderson now leads the Legal Department and joins the IDEX Senior Leadership Team. She joined IDEX five years ago as Assistant General Counsel and Assistant Secretary. On the commercial side, she has negotiated and enforced agreements to support strategic goals. She has enhanced the protection of IDEX intellectual property, supported mergers and acquisitions, and effectively managed risk related to other strategic initiatives.
After graduating from Northwestern University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, German Languages and Literature, Anderson began building her business foundation in purchasing and supply chain management for industrial supply company McMaster-Carr. After earning a law degree from Loyola University of Chicago, she practiced commercial litigation at the Chicago-based law firm Schiff Hardin LLP. She then joined SunCoke Energy, where she gained significant in-house experience in roles of increasing responsibility, including as commercial and litigation counsel and Deputy Chief Compliance Officer.
“I congratulate Lisa on her promotion to General Counsel and look forward to receiving her sound counsel as we continue growing IDEX. I also extend sincere thanks to Denise for her contributions and wish her well in her new adventures,” Ashleman said.
