DALLAS (June 22, 2015) – MV Transportation, Inc. is pleased to announce a new member of the Legal Team. Megan Smale joins the company as Vice President and Associate General Counsel for Labor, Employment & Litigation. In addition to the labor and employment law, Megan also is responsible for managing MV’s general litigation.
Megan comes to MV with a broad knowledge of employment law and litigation, having worked in private law firms and in-house legal departments. Most recently, as Associate General Counsel with Sabre, Megan served as the dedicated employment and compliance lawyer to a global workforce of this publicly traded company and shared responsibility for commercial litigation. Prior to joining Sabre, Megan was Associate General Counsel at RealPage, where she oversaw all dispute management and litigation, including high stakes class actions and regulatory enforcement actions.
“Megan brings a breadth and depth of knowledge to MV that will not only greatly enhance our legal department, but will allow us to keep building on our commitment to provide our business partners with efficient and practical solutions to legal issues,” said Lisa Winston Hicks, MV’s Board Chair and General Counsel. “I am thrilled to have her on the team.”
Megan will fill the position previously held by Jarrett Andrews, the company’s former Associate General Counsel who, earlier this year, was promoted to Chief Human Resources Officer.
“I’m very excited to join MV, the leading ground-based passenger transportation solutions provider. I am inspired by its modest start as a one-van provider led by two hard-working, innovative visionaries,” Megan said. “I look forward to MV’s future – including sustained growth, further international expansion, effective thought leadership in the public transit industry, and continuously evolving our services to meet customer needs.”
Megan earned her law degree from Villanova in 2004 and her undergraduate degree at Occidental College.
