The Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS) named Ann Pruitt as the agency’s new executive director. Pruitt earned her undergraduate degree from Clemson University and law degree from University of Tennessee. After working several years in private practice, she joined Dell Inc. as senior managing counsel in 1999 and worked her way to become executive director of ethics investigations and operations. While at Dell, Pruitt served on the TALS Board of Directors for several years and organized pro bono events. “Because TALS is the voice and public face of the equal justice community in Tennessee, this is a critical position for Tennessee families and the advocates who represent them," TALS board chair Frank Cantrell said in a press release. "We are pleased to have found someone with Ann’s skills, experience and commitment to lead us in the coming years.”
