Christoph Feddersen - Collins Aerospace: Retaining Talent Through Culture

German-born Christoph Feddersen would not be where he is today, the Vice President & General Counsel at Collins Aerospace in Charlotte, North Carolina, were it not for the tremendous opportunities he was given to stretch himself. Early opportunities came at international law firms Cleary Gottlieb and Morgan Lewis, and they continued to pop up in later roles as executive assistant to the chairman and CEO at United Technologies and vice president and general counsel for UTC Aerospace. In his current role, he looks to pay it forward by empowering a global network of legal, trade, and contracts professionals, and providing opportunities for them to prove their mettle and grow. It’s all part of the culture he has fostered, one built on a steady foundation of support and improvement. We discuss: - Integrating legal departments and balancing subject matter expertise across the organization - Why culture is a key tool in talent retention - How in-house departments and outside counsel can collaborate on DEI - The value of employee resource groups Hear more stories by subscribing to Innovative Legal Leadership on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or any podcast platform.
