American holding company IAC has named Kendall Handler as its new Senior Vice President and General Counsel. Ms. Handler replaces outgoing General Counsel Gregg Winiarski, and will be responsible for all legal, compliance and human resources functions, effective January 1, 2021.
"Kendall has already made a real and positive impact on the company during her time here, and we have big expectations ahead," said IAC CEO Joey Levin. "As is IAC's tradition, we like to promote our leaders from within. We will all miss Gregg deeply. He's been a positive and smart influence at the heart of this company for many years, and I'm grateful for his countless contributions, not the least of which is his support of the next generation of IAC leaders, and the superb bench he has built in the legal department. Kendall is a real talent with a sharp legal mind and will be a fantastic addition to the IAC executive team. We'll all benefit from her perspective as we build IAC's future."
Ms. Handler has been with IAC since 2017, most recently as Vice President, Mergers & Acquisitions Counsel. Before that, she spent six years as an associate at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, advising clients on M&A, governance and corporate affairs.
"I'm incredibly excited and honored to help define what's next for IAC as we drive forward doing what we do best: building great companies,” said Ms. Handler. “I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from Gregg and look forward to partnering with the rest of the executive team to write the next chapter of our winning story."
