San Ramon, Calif.-based Armanino LLP (FY13 net revenue of $112.8 million) announced the appointment of Chris Carlberg as its first general counsel in the firm’s history. Carlberg is responsible for overseeing all legal work for the firm as well as advising on business policy and overall governance.

“As Armanino focuses on cloud solutions and continued double-digit growth, we know having an in-house counsel will better equip Armanino to continue to expand the services we offer our clients,” says MP Andy Armanino. “His specific knowledge of new technologies accumulated during his years at technology powerhouse Amazon.com pairs perfectly with his legal expertise, business orientation and acumen.”

Carlberg most recently served as senior corporate counsel at Amazon.com, where he led a team that supported product development and operations of the company’s cloud computing business, and helped implement that division’s worldwide professional services arm. He also was a lead advisor on strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, complex commercial agreements, sales and marketing matters, and international expansion.
