2021 Star Woman in Convenience winner: Valery Zamuner
General counsel, SVP legal affairs and corporate secretary, Alimentation Couche-Tard
Although Valery Zamuner only joined Alimentation Couche-Tard two years ago, she’s already made a huge impact.
“Our mission is to serve our communities and make it easier for our customers, and when it came time for the legal department to help and support the company’s mission and build a stronger legal department, they gave me the opportunity to join and drive these changes, which was so exciting,” says Zamuner. “It was a big challenge, because like all transformations, it needed to start with a cultural change from all customers and stakeholders”
Zamuner leads the company’s legal team around the world, in the design and execution of major strategic and corporate initiatives, including the management of all legal aspects of acquisitions, partnerships, financings and high-value litigations.
Her collaborative approach, and 20-plus years of national and international legal and M&A work for both public and private companies, have brought impressive results to Couche-Tard. She is a valued advisor to the global executive management team and, with her strong governance skills, a valuable agent of change for the board of directors.
“I’m proud of my team and to lead the legal function supporting our company and operations, and being part of the strategic thinking to bring our company into the future of convenience,” says Zamuner.
