Following more than 17 years of exemplary service, General Corporate Counsel Cindy Lupica announced her retirement. Lupica has been an invaluable asset to ALC, especially during our recent period of growth and expansion. She will be greatly missed.
Reflecting on her career at ALC, Cindy Lupica stated, “When the late Allen Lund asked me if I would like to join the Allen Lund Company as its first in-house counsel, I laughed. Having no experience in general counsel or transportation law, I told Allen that I was the last person who should take the job. His response was that we would learn together. Seventeen plus years later, and under the insightful tutelage of Allen and so many others, I learned and thrived in a fast-paced, collaborative, and fun environment.
“With my upcoming retirement and the start of the next chapter of my life, I am thrilled to welcome attorney David Bayles to ALC where I know that he will seamlessly and professionally assume the mantle of the company’s next General Counsel.”
David Bayles will start as the new General Corporate Counsel on July 24. He joins ALC from ArentFox Schiff, a full service national law firm. Based in the Los Angeles office, he provided an array of legal services for 22 years, including in his most current role as a Senior Attorney in Complex Litigation.
Reflecting on the transition to his new role David Bayles exclaimed, “When I heard Cindy was retiring, I immediately felt great about the opportunity. After learning more about the business, meeting Cindy, the Executive Team, and other ALC team members, I was confident this was the perfect match!”
CFO, Steve Doerfler, stated,”While we are sad to be saying goodbye to Cindy after 17 great years, we know we’re in good hands with the addition of David. Cindy’s hard work and dedication to ALC has left us in a great position to make this transition.”
