Her name is Mipe Okunseinde, a legal heavyweight who spent the past 7 years working as a Senior Associate at Covington & Burling LLP. Now, Uber has appointed her as their Senior Counsel for Sub-Saharan Africa.

A Harvard Law degree, a Masters from Cambridge, and a ton of experience navigating legal waters (I stalked her on LinkedIn) all mean that she looks a good voice to have in your ear, when you’re doing anything groundbreaking like Uber is, in transport worldwide.
