TAWANI Enterprises Wins in Organizational Category 

The DCX Award in the Organizational Category was awarded to TAWANI Enterprises. Based in Chicago, Illinois, TAWANI is a thriving private equity firm with a portfolio of both startups and mature innovative companies in a variety of industries. 

About TAWANI Enterprises

TAWANI Enterprises logo

TAWANI Enterprises was founded in 1994 by Jennifer Pritzker, a noted investor and philanthropist, and named for her three children – Tal, William, and Andrew. The company is dedicated to connecting people to the history in their midst, creating opportunities for growth and knowledge, and forging stronger, healthier communities. 

TAWANI’s internally owned companies include:

  • TAWANI Property Management
  • TAWANI Property Development
  • TAWANI Foundation
  • Pritzker Military Foundation
  • Pritzker Military Museum & Library
  • Master Wings Publishing
  • Aurum Trading


To win the DCX Award, TAWANI demonstrated dramatic improvements in streamlining and automating its contracting processes. The company’s new CLM processes resulted in significant gains in compliance, visibility, and efficiency. 

Before digitally transforming its CLM, TAWANI’s various entities generated a large volume of contract requests through a variety of manual processes that were difficult for the legal team to organize and manage. This created numerous inefficiencies in tracking the stage and status of contracts in progress, which delayed deadlines, created unnecessary risk, and frequently resulted in communications breakdowns across departments. 

TAWANI digitally transformed its contract management in a variety of ways, including centralizing the contract request/intake process and automating workflows for alerts, approvals, and reviews. These changes have enabled the company to:

  • Better prioritize tasks
  • Manage expectations
  • Serve internal clients faster and more accurately

Jacki Barnett of Medallion Midstream Wins in Individual Category

The DCX Award in the Individual Category was awarded to Jacki Barnett, senior contract specialist at Medallion Midstream. She won the Award for her actions in:

  • Raising the profile of CLM within her company
  • Leading a successful internal user adoption campaign
  • Making significant improvements in the areas of contract collaboration, analytics, time to execution, and obligation management

About Medallion Midstream

Medallion Midstream logo

Based in Irving, Texas, Medallion Midstream is a provider of midstream services for oil and gas providers in the Permian Basin of western Texas and eastern New Mexico. The company operates more than 1,200 miles of crude oil pipelines and 75 miles of natural gas pipelines, as well as crude oil storage facilities. Its intra-basin header system connects crude oil supply from multiple top-tier producers to multiple long-haul takeaway pipelines and local refineries. 

What Jacki Barnett Did

Medallion Midstream operates with a distributed workforce of field, business development, legal, and finance teams across 25 different corporate entities. To more efficiently manage its operations, Medallion needed to centralize and digitize all of its contracts and contracting processes. 

This task was assigned to Jacki Barnett, Medallion’s senior contract specialist. She successfully spearheaded the company’s digital contract transformation by rolling out a new CLM process and platform that enables the company to:

  • Execute contracts 90% faster
  • Instantly locate answers to contract-related questions with real-time insights
  • Transform the creation of compliance reports for financial teams from a days-long process to a simple request

As a result, Medallion’s contract process, formerly spread out between many different locations and departments, is now centralized and significantly more efficient. This looks to have immediate and long-term benefits to the company, which is why Jacki Barnett was honored with the DCX Individual Award.
