Allstate Corp. hires new GC
Allstate Corp. has hired lawyer Michele Coleman Mayes as its new general counsel and senior vice president. Mayes, who will replace Michael McCabe, said she took the job because Allstate is a "bigger company" with a "bigger challenge." She also strongly agrees with Allstate's chief executive officer, Tom Wilson, and his mission to improve Allstate's "customer focus" and to "[build] a leadership team that is willing to take risks while being held accountable for its decisions." Currently, Mayes works for Pitney Bowes as its senior vice president and general counsel. Starting November 5, Mayes' duties at Allstate will include overseeing the company's legal and public policy activities.
