Vena general counsel Le Huong Truong joins executive leadership team

Toronto-based software company Vena has promoted Le Huong Truong to senior vice president, general counsel and corporate Secretary. She will join Vena's executive leadership team led by CEO Hunter Madeley.

"It's important for all leaders to find the right balance of speed and certainty, especially in our high-growth environment," said Madeley. "Le's strong, stable advice and counsel have provided a solid foundation for Vena's continued success. We are fortunate to be able to lean on and learn from Le as we continue to build our company and culture."

Truong joined Vena as vice president and general counsel in 2020, leading the legal function to deliver on its core mandate of managing risk and driving growth at scale. She was also instrumental in completing Vena's Series C funding round, which raised approximately $300 million.

Previously, Truong served as senior corporate counsel at technology solutions provider CDW, overseeing the company's Canadian legal function as a member of its Canadian leadership team. Prior to that, she served as legal counsel for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation where she provided advice on a wide range of commercial and regulatory matters, and she provided practical legal solutions in connection with complex business strategies and initiatives.

Truong also articled and practiced corporate and commercial, corporate finance and securities law at Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP.

 "It's an honor and a privilege to serve on the executive leadership team alongside Hunter and so many other talented Venanites," Truong said. "Coming off a record-setting first half, I am excited at the opportunity to help guide our company in its mission and in the continued service of our customers."
