On Dec. 22, 2010, the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed DuPont attorney Ramona Romero to serve as General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).  Once sworn-in, Ramona will become the first Latina attorney to serve in this role.

In her most recent role at DuPont, Ramona provided legal oversight for the acquisition of transportation, distribution, supply-chain management, travel and energy resources, and managed related strategic litigation.  Since 2008, Ramona also served as General Counsel of Sentinel Transportation LLC, a DuPont joint venture.

Throughout her legal career, Ramona has been a leader in advancing the interests of minorities and women, helping to set up and run several programs at DuPont, its outside partner law firms, as well as at the Hispanic National Bar Association, where she served as president in 2008 and 2009.  Ramona also has received many distinguished honors, including Hispanic Business Magazine’s recognition in 2007 as one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in the U.S.

“We congratulate Ramona on her Senate confirmation to such a distinguished position as General Counsel for the USDA,” said Tom Sager, DuPont senior vice president and general counsel.

“Ramona is a preeminent lawyer who has been a leader, innovator and pioneer, earning the recognition and respect of her peers throughout the legal community.  As a former president of the Hispanic National Bar Association, Ramona has been a true champion in promoting and advancing diversity within the legal profession,” Tom said. “Ramona is a committed and experienced leader who raises the energy and intensity level of people around her because of her passion, razor-sharp legal mind and common-sense attitude.

“Ramona will serve the American people with the highest degree of ethical standards, distinction and integrity,” Tom said.
