Leadership Team

Val Ilchenko

General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer

Val joined TrustArc in October 2023 to lead its Legal and Privacy Departments and serve as corporate secretary. Val’s principled approach as General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer is to seek to create efficient, elegant, and practical solutions to complex legal, business, and privacy issues, wherever possible.

Previously, Val served as Deputy General Counsel and Data Privacy Officer at GoTo, a $1B+ ARR Boston-based global company providing a host of software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings across multiple business units and a diverse portfolio of unified collaboration and IT support-focused products. Val was involved in numerous aspects of GoTo’s business operations ranging from portfolio-wide “ground up” privacy program building, regulatory oversight during mergers and acquisitions, cybersecurity and incident response, telecommunications, international expansion, commercial/go-to-market activities, as well as governance, risk, and compliance.

Val holds a B.A from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a J.D. and M.B.A from Suffolk University. Outside of his role at TrustArc, you can find Val watching Bluey with his wife, kids, and dog, exploring Boston-area coffee shops, snowboarding, or attempting to revive his lawn.
