Hanover, MD (June 6, 2019) — Major, Lindsey & Africa (MLA), the world’s leading legal search firm, today announced the placement of Corrine Glass as general counsel at RSE Ventures, LLC in New York City. The search was led by Dimitri Mastrocola, a partner in MLA’s In-House Counsel Practice Group in New York City.
In her new role, Corrine will have senior responsibility for all legal aspects of structuring and executing RSE’s investments, which include PE/growth equity, venture capital and operating capital deployed through a variety of structures (e.g., direct equity; debt and equity co-investments; term and revolving loans; convertible debt; investment funds and joint ventures). RSE is a private investment firm founded by Stephen M. Ross and Matt Higgins, which specializes in incubating, operating and growing consumer brands with a focus on food, technology, sports and media.
“RSE is thrilled to add Corrine to our team,” said Matt Higgins, RSE co-founder and CEO. “She has an incredible background as a general counsel in the investment space and a unique understanding of the work that RSE does. And most importantly, she fits in with the culture that we’ve built here. We look forward to working with her.”
Before joining RSE, Corrine served as general counsel for Shumway Capital. Her background also includes various leadership roles as acting general counsel and managing director, Equities and Alternative Investments for IFG Companies and as senior investment counsel to Harbinger Capital Partners. Prior to moving in-house, Corrine was an associate with Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
“Corrine was the ideal fit to become RSE’s general counsel given the breadth of legal issues that she can handle independently,” said Dimitri Mastrocola. “Not only does she possess impeccable work ethic, but Corinne is also a strategic thinker with a strong business head who can problem solve creatively and concisely. She is energetic, collaborative, and a quick and independent learner. RSE hired a gem.”
Corrine earned her J.D. from Harvard University and her A.B. from the University of California, Berkeley.
