Federated Investors Elects Jones to Board of Directors
Federated Investors, Inc. (NYSE: FII), one of the nation's largest investment managers, today announced that its board of directors elected Marie Milie Jones as an independent director of the company at Federated's Annual Shareholder Meeting.
Jones, who has 26 years of legal and management experience, is a founding partner at JonesPassodelis, PLLC, a Pittsburgh-based law firm that specializes in civil rights and employment law, commercial litigation, professional liabilities law and other areas. Jones had previously served as managing partner at Meyer, Darragh, Buckler, Bebeneck & Eck, PLCC, where she had practiced law since her graduation from the Duquesne University School of Law. Jones also currently serves as chairman of the board at Duquesne University and as a member of the Board of Regents of Saint Vincent Seminary.
"Marie brings a distinguished legal career and valuable management experience to Federated's board of directors where her insights and knowledge will help the company continue to enhance shareholder value," said J. Christopher Donahue, president and chief executive officer of Federated Investors, Inc.
Jones succeeds Edward G. O'Connor, retired special counsel at the law firm Eckert, Seamans, Cherin & Mellott, LLC, who was elected to Federated's board in April 2001.

Marie Milie Jones, who was managing attorney of Pittsburgh-based Meyer Darragh Buckler Bebenek & Eck from 1999 to 2008, said that while in that role, she never perceived any gender-related obstacles either within her firm or outside of it.
But Jones did admit that she felt increased pressure to perform as a firm leader because there were so few other females in similar positions at the time.
"I was one of very few women during that tenure in that role within the community, so it was a challenge to the extent that you're different," she said.
Jones, who at 35 became the youngest female ever to manage a Pittsburgh law firm, said the majority of the outside vendors she dealt with had male representatives who were sometimes taken aback to find a young woman at the helm of a law firm.
"Oftentimes their reaction - and perhaps it was just a facial thing - was one of surprise," she said.
But, according to Jones, she never felt like being a woman impeded her ability to negotiate with them. n some cases, it may actually have helped her, she said.
"I have a fairly social personality," she said.
In the end, Jones said one of the most important factors for success as a female attorney with an interest in a management role at a firm is the attitude of the firm itself.
"I think firm culture makes a difference," she said.
