Chief Legal Officers

Michael Tucker has served since 2010 as Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Avis Budget Group (ABG), which owns the Avis, Budget, Zipcar, Payless, Maggiore, France Cars and Apex brands, and has just been named a 2017 ACC Value Champion. Tucker heads up a legal department of 52 globally, including four compliance professionals and 16 paralegals. The department is organized by regions and subject matter expertise, inclusive of three regional leads based in the United States and England, and other country leads in France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany and Brazil. Although it sounds draconian, the zero-based budgeting process is something every company should do once in a while, says Tucker, who notes that it also helped him get his arms around his company’s global in-house and outside counsel spend.

In doing so, the company can guarantee a positive relationship with federal regulators and avoid meeting a tragic Shakespearean demise.
