Sabina Bickelmann, General Counsel & Company Secretary, Vend

Sabina Bickelmann leads the legal function at Vend, a kiwi start-up launched in 2010, which now has 25,000+ stores in over 140 countries and is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. Bickelmann has oversight across the entire business, and works closely with the executive team and the board, providing not only legal advice but strategic commercial advice too. As Vend's first lawyer, she has successfully chartered her own path and built the in-house legal function from the ground up. Bickelmann has led many cross-functional change projects in the past year including: the development of a global IP strategy – negotiating and working with leading companies like Apple, Xero, Google, BigCommmerce and Paypal; developing a global data protection strategy, which included managing and delivering a project to achieve GDPR compliance; and supporting the business with exponential growth in the US.
