Jennifer Millones ’96

Jennifer Millones, chief legal officer and assistant secretary of Newman’s Own Foundation in Westport, CT, spoke at an event sponsored by the BC Law Business Law Society and Boston Alumni Chapter at BC Law in April.


Main Attraction: Working for Newman’s Own Foundation enables her to be part of a company that gives 100 percent of its profits to charity. As Paul Newman said, “What could be better than to hold your hand out to those less fortunate?” Favorite Perk: All of the pasta sauce I can eat! Best Career Advice Received: “When I graduated from college, the job market was terrible. My first job was working for a car finance company trying to convince people to buy their cars after their lease. When I interviewed for the job, my future boss said, ‘I don’t care that you went to an Ivy League college. Can you sell cars?’ That always stuck with me. If you can’t do the job, it doesn’t matter what credentials you have. I never rest on my credentials. I’m always trying to do the best job for the task at hand. I was the leading car salesman, by the way! When not working…: “I am driving my three kids around. If I get a break from driving, you can find me on the tennis or paddle courts.”
