OneTrust Hires Its First-Ever Chief Legal and Business Officer, From HP

  • Former HP General Counsel Kim Rivera Joins OneTrust in New Role
  • OneTrust has raised $920 million since its inception

(Reuters) – OneTrust has hired Kim Rivera, a former top lawyer at HP Inc, as its first director of legal and business affairs, the privacy and security software provider said on Tuesday.

Rivera, who is known for her work on diversity and inclusion in the legal industry, takes the newly created position at OneTrust after approximately six years at HP.

Rivera resigned from her position as general counsel at HP early last year, moving into a transitional advisory role until Dec. 31 in addition to her position as president of strategy and business management.

At HP, Rivera implemented an initiative to increase the diversity of law firms the tech giant has hired to handle its legal work.

She set out the policy in a widely publicized 2017 letter to those companies, which said the company could withhold up to 10% of fees if a company did not meet the requirements for diverse staffing.

She joined HP in 2015 after holding senior legal roles at DaVita Inc, Clorox Co, and Rockwell Automation Inc.

HP did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Rivera’s departure.

OneTrust, co-headquartered in Atlanta and London, said its platform is used by more than 12,000 customers for privacy, data governance, security and compliance.

OneTrust has raised $920 million since its inception in 2016. The company secured a $210 million investment in April, led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2 and Franklin Templeton, at a valuation of more than $5 billion.
