David Gomez, Associate General Counsel
I started as an Assistant General Counsel in 2016 supporting only Employment. In 2019, I was promoted to Associate General Counsel. As of today, I now support or oversee most of the Corporate legal work, including employment, corporate transactions, and corporate governance. I also oversee the Latin American legal team, and provide project-based support as needed. My day-to-day role focuses on managing and advising on how to mitigate risk to the Company while satisfying the Company’s mission to make people’s lives healthier, safer, and more fulfilling. Through this, I engage regularly with all levels of the broader Olympus organization and Human Resources to confirm that employees are being treated fairly and equitably in alignment with the Company’s Core Values.
Working at Olympus provides me exceptional and exciting opportunities to positively impact the Company. As a dynamic workplace, I have enjoyed that Olympus welcomes and encourages employees, regardless of level, who create new ideas or are willing to work in new areas. This atmosphere has fostered significant personal career growth and ensures that opportunities will remain available. Personally, as a father of 4, Olympus’ commitment to its Core Values has enabled me to maintain a meaningful balance between my personal considerations and professional goals.
