As General Counsel of Pantheon, Ronak Ray leads all legal matters for the company. He applies the business judgment he developed early in his career working with Fortune 100 leaders. He is a veteran of the digital marketing space and has first-hand experience scaling the legal function of a pre-IPO company in San Francisco. Ronak started out at Accenture in advisory roles across finance, risk management and legal. A decade later, he left the structure of a public company for a feisty pseudo-start-up making waves in digital CMS at Sitecore. Nearly four years later and a blockbuster exit at €1 billion, he was tapped by TaskUs, a digital-first outsourcing company, to build a legal function from scratch. He supported TaskUs’ board as corporate secretary and 18,000 people globally while managing to close a $500 million transaction with Blackstone before joining us at Pantheon. Ronak holds a bachelor's degree in finance and economics from DePaul University and a law degree from DePaul University College of Law. He is certified in intellectual property law and is also a certified privacy professional (CIPP/US).
