Michael Warnecke on Dana C. O'Brien in In-House Texas


Customs and Compliance: Dana C. O'Brien Keeps Her Company Aligned With More Thank 150 Countries' Trade Regulation
In-House Texas

Michael Warnecke, a litigation partner in the Dallas office of Haynes and Boone, says he has worked as an outside counsel for O’Brien since 2005, before publicly traded EGL merged with TNT to become privately held CEVA. “In the process of going private, the company quadrupled in size, and she oversaw the worldwide integration when the company went from 10,000 to 50,000 employees,” he says of O’Brien. “She was the GC for the public company, and when they took it private, they kept her. That’s a testimony in itself,” he says. Warnecke says that O’Brien has a calm personality. “I’ve never seen her feathers ruffled.”
