Baker Botts TMT Spotlight: Leading Women Podcast Series

Client Updates

We are excited to launch the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) Spotlight: Leading Women series on the Baker Botts podcast channel.

TMT Spotlight: Leading Women features interviews with notable women in TMT and highlights, among other things, career accomplishments and milestones, lessons learned and TMT issues of interest.

We invite you to tune into our first two episodes:

Episode 1 – Amy Porter, AffiniPay
Amy Porter is Founder and Executive Chairman of AffiniPay and leads the direction and growth of the company. Her knowledge and experience in the payment industry has helped her build a dynamic, talented and client-focused team. Over the past decade, AffiniPay has become the payment processing partner for thousands of associations. In addition, AffiniPay provides member benefit programs for key partners in the legal, accounting and medical industries. AffiniPay's LawPay brand has become the gold standard for correctly handling credit card transactions in a law firm.

Episode 2 – Jayne Stowell, Google
Baker Botts Partner Stuart Blythe is joined by special guest, Jayne Stowell, the Strategic Negotiator of Global Infrastructure at Google, overseeing the development and construction of undersea cable projects. Jayne speaks to her distinguished career, which has been almost exclusively in the telecom and digital communications sector and in a range of advisory and executive roles, having worked for major accounting and banking firms, held senior executive and Board positions in telecommunications companies, and led her own successful consulting firm. Within the subsea sector, Jayne’s consistently innovative approach has proven to be transformative - from successfully building her first submarine cable in just 18 months through deploying systems in almost every region in the world. Jayne joined Google in 2007 as a key component to Google’s subsea cable endeavor, and continues to lead the team throughout its technology advances. Google itself continues to be a leader in the space, with its recently deployed Dunant cable system between the U.S. and Europe, delivering record breaking capacity of 250 terabits per second and Grace Hopper cable with 16 fibre pairs and at least 340 Tbps of capacity, which is currently being constructed between the U.S., the UK and Spain.
