The General Counsel of the Year Awards program honors New Jersey's standout General Counsels, Chief Legal Officers and corporate compliance professionals for the critical role they play in making their companies successful. Chiclana was independently nominated by American Standard business partner Marsh USA of Marsh & McLennan for this award.

Chiclana is the chief legal counsel for American Standard Brands, as well as serving as business leader of environment, health and safety and risk management for the building products manufacturer. Bringing 25 years of global legal experience, she joined the company in 2008 and oversaw the successful merger of Crane Plumbing, Eljer, Safety Tubs and Decorative Panels International into the American Standard portfolio.

Finalists in this NJBIZ program were selected in six categories: Public Company with Revenues Up to $1 Billion, Public Company with Revenues Over $1 Billion, Corporate Compliance Professional, Private Company with Revenues Up to $1 Billion, Private Company with Revenues Over $1 Billion, and Non-profit or Government Organization.

Finalists and winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges including: Mayor Gerald R. Drasheff, Christine Pellizzari, Christopher Klein, and Anthony Tinari. Honorees were selected using a scoring system based on: career successes, legal victories and achievements, professional services provided and community service.

Chiclana earned her Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude, from Barnard College, Columbia University, and her Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School. Prior to American Standard Brands, she worked in both corporate and private law, most notably for Unilever in various senior executive roles and as general counsel.

The General Counsel of the Year Awards finalists will be recognized and the winners in each category will be announced during a breakfast awards ceremony on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at the Palace in Somerset Park in Somerset, NJ. For more details, visit www.njbiz.com/events.
