Stamford, CT | Added on October 25, 2011 At 08:56 AM

St. Luke’s LifeWorks has announces that effective November 14, Anahaita Kotval will be joining the organization as Chief Operating Officer. Anahaita comes to SLLW after an impressive 13-year career at RBS, where she last served as Managing Director and General Counsel of RBS Global Banking & Markets (formerly Greenwich Capital).

At RBS, Kotval led a team of over 60 legal professionals and managed the firm’s legal, regulatory, and reputational risk. In addition, she was the Senior Legal Advisor to the CEO and Board, and a member of the Senior Management Committee for the Americas. Anahaita received a B.Sc. magna cum laude in Applied Math and Economics from Brown University in 1988 and a J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1991.

In addition to her work at RBS, Anahaita has also served on the Board of Fairfield County Community Foundation. She currently serves on the Board of My Sister’s Place and Pro Bono Partnership, where she is also a member of the Executive Committee. She received the Partnership’s Volunteer of the Year award in 2003 and Volunteer of the Decade award in 2007.

Anahaita has been associated with the Pro Bono Partnership for many years, first as an outstanding volunteer, and then as a leading member of our Board of Directors. SLLW is truly fortunate to have the benefit of her dedication, her intelligence and her perseverance. She will be an invaluable asset to the organization,” says Rick Hobish of the Pro Bono Partnership.

At SLLW, Anahaita will focus on operations, special projects, and strategic planning in close consultation with Chief Executive Officer, Jason T. Shaplen.

Anahaita is a superstar,” says Shaplen. “It is highly unusual for an organization of SLLW’s size to attract someone with her expertise and talent. She will be a great addition as she joins a very deep and talented team. What excites me the most is that Anahaita will bring not just her skills to the organization, but great passion. She is dedicated to building a best-in-class organization with effective programs that can be replicated elsewhere.”
