The Association of Corporate Counsel announced Friday that it has tapped Veta Richardson to become its new president and CEO as of July 1, when Frederick Krebs will step down after 20 years as president. The ACC said its search committee was unanimous in choosing Richardson — who has served as the executive director of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association since 2001 — for the job.

“Veta’s close ties to the in-house counsel community, her excellent communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills, coupled with the regard in which she is held as an association executive and a leader in the diversity arena, will be invaluable assets for ACC,” said J. Alberto Gonzalez-Pita, ACC board chair and general counsel of HCP, Inc., in a prepared statement.
