Keith currently works out of the Pittsburgh headquarters of Bayer Corporation, having first joined Bayer in January 1999 as a Senior Counsel for the Pharmaceutical Division in West Haven, Connecticut. He transferred to Pittsburgh in August 2002 to support the Company’s then recent listing on the New York Stock Exchange and corporate governance activities. During the past ten years in Pittsburgh, Keith’s responsibilities have changed as the business and legal environment surrounding governance and compliance have changed. In addition to providing legal support on corporate and transactional activities at Bayer, Keith helps head the Bayer Corporation Compliance and Risk Committee. He also has chaired and is a member of its U.S. Policy Committee.
Prior to 1999, Keith was engaged in the private practice of law in Chicago, Illinois, representing clients on corporate, securities and transactional matters. He is a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School and studied Accounting as an undergraduate at the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana.
