Global analytics and advisory firm Gallup has announced the return of William Kruse as general counsel. Kruse rejoins Gallup after nearly five years serving as deputy general counsel for CFA Institute.
Prior to his time at CFA Institute, Kruse served as Gallup’s senior counsel for the public sector division, contracting in the firm’s Washington DC headquarters and as their prior chief compliance officer.
“We are thrilled to welcome William back to Gallup,” said Gallup CEO Jon Clifton. “William’s extensive legal experience and deep understanding of our business will be invaluable as we navigate the complex legal landscape and continue to grow and succeed.”
Kruse’s return comes at a pivotal time for Gallup as the organization tackles some significant global challenges. Gallup is increasingly advising corporations, non-profits, NGOs, and governments on how to use advanced analytics to solve their most pressing problems.
“I am excited to be back at Gallup and to be part of such a talented and dedicated team,” said Kruse. “A highly focused and tactical legal team which actively partners with business is essential to Gallup’s ability to help its clients navigate an increasingly complex and regulated world.”
Prior to Gallup, Kruse was also a trial and appellate counsel at a boutique railroad and maritime trial firm based in St. Louis, Missouri. He has also been chair of the American Bar Association.
