Transformation Needs a Champion

Kayla Harrison

Our first global brand ambassador, Kayla Harrison, is a true champion for change. Kayla embodies our core brand values — integrity, excellence, collaboration, vision, and ambition. And, like UnitedLex, Kayla is tenacious in pursuit of her goals, and eager to flip convention on its head.

Kayla made history at the 2012 Olympics in London when she became the first American to win a gold medal in the history of the sport of judo, and she successfully defended her gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Her victories imprint another step in a career characterized by success at the sport’s highest levels. After winning gold twice on the world’s largest stage, Kayla is now a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) athlete who competes with the Professional Fighters League.

Born in Middletown, Ohio, Kayla has succeeded through a combination of talent, heart, courage, and hard work. She started taking judo lessons at age six and had won two national championships by age 15. Kayla is also a survivor of sexual abuse, a subject she wrote about in her book, Fighting Back. She created the Fearless Foundation to educate survivors and to empower them with the strength to come forward and seek help.

Kayla’s story has captivated audiences everywhere and has been featured by Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, USA Today, Time Magazine, The Today Show, CNN, and MSNBC, among many others. Kayla was awarded the 2012 OC Tanner Inspiration Award and The Women’s Sports Foundation’s Wilma Rudolph Courage Award. She was named one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year for 2012, Boston Globe Magazine’s Bostonian of the Year, and the Boston Sportswriter’s Association Athlete of the Year.

I approach my life the same way UnitedLex approaches business: Be unconventional and be disruptive, but support those around you. UnitedLex’s relentlessly innovative response to challenges in the business world aligns perfectly with the way I respond to challenges in my own life.
