Bradley attorney Dick Sayles was quoted in the Texas Lawbook on the accomplishments of Mark Shaw, Southwest Airlines' executive vice president, chief legal and regulatory officer. Mr. Shaw was featured in the article for his leadership through various crises, including the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the financial crises of 2008, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sayles said Shaw "consistently exercises sound judgment."
"Without the distraction of emotion and without blindly seeking the result that would simply be the desired outcome, Mark is thoughtful, pragmatic and confident enough to call it like it is," Sayles said. "Mark is a steady hand in the face of every challenge. He is honest with his executives and with the legal team. He is aggressive but at the right time, always balancing business considerations while calling the legal shots."
