Vice President and General Counsel
Peter Katz joined Expel in 2020 as our Vice President and General Counsel. He’s building our in-house legal team from the ground up. We like that he’s not only bringing his more than 15 years of experience as an attorney to Expel, but also his great sense of humor. (Kind of a requirement here).
Before joining Expel, Peter was Vice President and General Counsel of Duo Security. During his time as an executive at Duo, he built and led the legal department, serving as a trusted advisor to the management team and Board of Directors. In 2018, his legal strategy was integral during the Cisco acquisition of Duo Security for $2.35 billion.
Prior to Duo Security, Peter was Director and Senior Legal Counsel of AlixPartners, a global consulting firm. He also served as Associate Counsel of Vanguard, one of the world’s largest investment management firms. And before all that, Peter was an Associate in the Corporate & Securities practice at Pepper Hamilton, based in the Philadelphia office.
Peter has a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School and a B.S. in finance from the University of Florida.
