Angélique Parisot-Potter

Legal and business integrity leader
Angélique Parisot-Potter traces her sense of justice to her father, a 260-pound wrestler who told her that no matter your size, you must look out for others.

Why you should listen

Angélique Parisot-Potter creates business integrity programs to protect companies and their brands. She serves as general counsel of Massy Group, overseeing all global legal affairs, including regulatory and compliance matters, and leads Massy's Business Integrity program, where she works with the board, executives and senior management to create a safe, inclusive culture.

Parisot-Potter's father taught her that love goes hand-in-hand with integrity. She was born in Hamburg, Germany and grew up in Trinidad and Tobago, where she learned to view things through the lens of its melting pot of cultures. She has worked in Trinidad and Tobago as well as the UK, Brazil, Dominican Republic and Egypt. She believes deeply in diversity of thought, real equality for women, fairness, justice and speaking truth to power.
