Meet Deanna Pickering, the legal luminary at GlobalMeet, who leads the charge as General Counsel. Deanna is the legal powerhouse behind the scenes, ensuring that every move is strategic and compliant with applicable laws and regulations. She’s GlobalMeet’s guardian angel, swooping in to clear the path so the company can soar to new heights!


With over two decades of experience as an attorney, Deanna’s journey is one for the books. She’s navigated the legal landscapes of various tech companies, starting with steering Insight Enterprises through its IPO and serving for nearly a decade as General Counsel of the public company. She was General Counsel at Infusionsoft for four years, translating intimidating legal requirements seamlessly into Infusionsoft’s entrepreneurial and small-business-focused culture. She’s sprinkled her legal magic at Lumension (now HEAT software), Vixxo Corporation, and Revana (formerly Direct Alliance Corporation). She even dipped her toes into solo practice for a while, but teamwork makes the dream work, right?


Deanna was also a finalist for Arizona Business Magazine’s Corporate Counsel Award. She obtained her J.D. at the University of Tulsa’s College of Law and holds a B.A. with Honors in Political Science from Oklahoma State University.


Deanna’s all about seizing the day, making every moment count, and simply doing her best. Her philosophy is simple yet profound: be yourself, know yourself, be vulnerable, and never shy away from speaking up or seeking help when needed. Carpe diem is more than just a saying for her; it’s a way of life.


Deanna firmly believes in growth, optimism, and a sprinkle of luck. Following graduation, her legal career began with a stroke of luck—a broken plastic fork at Wendy’s in Arizona led to a chance encounter and interview that kickstarted her career at Insight Enterprises, where she thrived for fourteen years.


But wait, there’s more to Deanna than just her legal prowess. Her boundless enthusiasm extends far beyond the boardroom. She’s all about family, diving into a good book with her book club, hiking trails, or rowing her way to serenity. Oh, and did we mention she’s a sports enthusiast, a baking aficionado, and has a green thumb when it comes to her vegetable garden? Talk about a well-rounded superstar!


So here’s to Deanna Pickering, whose dedication, legal expertise, and zest for life remind us to enjoy the journey, always do our best, take advantage of opportunities when they come, and not worry about what might have been. We’re lucky to have you leading the legal way, Deanna!
