McGeneral counsel - McDonald's GC on life in the fast-food lane
After 33 years with McDonald's, corporate lawyer Gloria Santona says she's still lovin' it. Shannon Green reports
When Gloria Santona (pictured), top lawyer at McDonald’s Corporation, was in college, she wanted to become a doctor. She studied biochemistry at Michigan State University, but things didn’t quite fall into place as she’d planned. “I failed to get into medical school,” says Santona, “so I worked for a couple of years.” She took a human resources position with the US Government, and that’s where she became acquainted with a lawyer in her department. “He suggested I go to law school,” she says. Santona took his advice, and to her surprise found that she really liked her corporate law classes.
