This week, ACA International added Colin Winkler as the association’s new corporate counsel at its Minnesota headquarters.
Winkler, an attorney with 10 years of experience, previously served as an attorney editor with Thomson Reuters’ statutes editorial team, where he led early research on the California Consumer Privacy Act.
Winkler’s other experience includes time as paralegal supervisor and business operations manager for CACI International at the U.S. Department of Justice, Tax Division, where he worked hand-in-hand with DOJ attorneys to enforce civil tax liabilities, and a collections and creditors’ rights attorney both in solo practice and at a small firm in northern Virginia.
As corporate counsel, ACA International indicated Winkler said he is focused on providing effective oversight of ACA’s Industry Advancement Program and supporting robust advocacy on the industry’s behalf.
“I’m thrilled to be here at ACA and to have the opportunity to work with our accomplished and energetic legal and leadership teams, board of directors and committee members,” Winkler said in a post on the organization’s website.
“Together with them, I’m looking forward to strengthening our industry and to helping our members succeed, particularly in light of recent changes to the federal regulatory and statutory landscape,” he went on to say.
The organization added that Winkler will work closely with Issa Moe, ACA’s general counsel and vice president of legal.
