Gunster, one of Florida’s oldest and largest full-service business law firms, is pleased to announce that attorney Bob Lamm has been appointed to Women Executive Leadership (WEL) Florida’s Board of Directors.
Founded in 1999, WEL Florida provides an empowering and friendly network of collaborative women executives committed to supporting and filling well-earned positions of power in the C-Suite and on Boards for themselves and their peers—by advocating, educating and connecting accomplished women leaders—today and in the future.
“WEL is so pleased to have Bob Lamm join our Board of Directors! Bob’s experience and passion for advancing women will be an asset to our organization and support our mission to increase gender diversity in the C-suite and Boardroom,” stated Katherine Young, WEL Board President.
As chair of Gunster’s Securities Law & Corporate Governance practice, Lamm advises clients in industries such as healthcare, banking, transportation, and insurance, among others. His previous experience includes senior legal positions at Pfizer, W. R. Grace, CA Technologies, and Financial Guaranty Insurance Company.
Lamm serves as a member of Gunster’s Women’s Leadership Forum committee, a firm initiative comprised of men and women who work at Gunster and share the goal of advancing qualified women lawyers into leadership roles within the legal community and the community at large.
Commenting on his new Board role, Lamm said “Anyone who’s worked as long as I have with boards and executives knows first-hand that women make great directors. I’m delighted to join an organization that helps more women to serve on boards and to have the opportunity to contribute to their companies.”
Lamm earned his J.D. from University of Pennsylvania and a B.A from Brandeis University.
