Talent management software company Topia has appointed longtime in-house lawyer Elaine Foreman as its first general counsel.

San Francisco-based Topia announced Foreman’s elevation to GC in a press release Thursday. Foreman joined Topia, formerly MOVE Guides, in October 2017 as vice president of legal and real estate. In that role, she handled all of Topia’s legal matters, including commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property protection and leasing issues. She’ll now also oversee legal strategy.
