It’s not every in-house lawyer who owns a pair of steel-toed wingtips. But for Ron Peppe, 44, the new GC and chief compliance officer of Canam Steel Corporation, the reinforced formal footwear is an essential part of his attire. That’s because Peppe, who works out of the company’s Point of Rocks, Maryland, office, often has to tour job sites or walk through plants. Canam, the United States subsidiary of Canada’s Canam Group Inc., makes steel building components and erects large-scale projects such as stadiums, airports, office towers, and convention centers. Working at Canam is nothing new for Peppe. He was with the company from 1996 to 2004, most recently as vice president for legal services. Peppe says he left as the parent company was restructuring and planning to sell its United States and Mexican operations. A longtime member of the Association of Corporate Counsel, Peppe moved to the Washington, D.C. � based group as vice president of law and technology. A self-described techie, he managed Web services, publications, conferences and legal education, technology, and legal resources. In the meantime Canam decided against selling operations. The company lured Peppe back to the steel business by expanding his responsibilities to include compliance and human resources, in addition to giving him the GC title. “The fun part about Canam is working at a place where we actually make something that I can point to and show my kids,” he says. Lately they’ve followed the progress of new football stadiums for the Eagles in Philadelphia and the Patriots in Foxboro, Massachusetts. For the record, Peppe’s daughter is more interested in construction than his son.
