Features February 2017

Alex Liberman – Medline Industries Inc.

It’s hard to imagine that Medline, a company that earns almost $9 billion in annual revenue and is the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies in the U.S., could have an underdog mentality. But Medline has held on to the conservative, detail-oriented ethos that helped it grow from a small manufacturer of […]

Allison Nagelberg – Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation

On her birthday, Allison Nagelberg asked every employee at Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation to name a charity they wanted to support. Then she donated $100 to each charity. She got the idea from her dad, who was an executive at Prudential Insurance Company for nearly his entire career. On his 60th birthday, he asked […]

Bella Sanevich – NISA Investment Advisors LLC

Sometimes the old model stops working. Case in point: the retirement savings model Americans relied on for decades. Traditionally, companies provided their employees with defined-benefit pension plans that, if the employee served for a predetermined number of years, would pay the individual some set amount of money for the rest of his or her life. […]

Carrie Hightman – NiSource Inc.

Throughout her career, Carrie Hightman has often been one of the only women at the table. Now, as chief legal officer for NiSource Inc., one of the largest gas and electric utility companies in the U.S., Hightman is working to bring not just women, but people from all backgrounds to the table through leading a […]

Christian A. Garza – Cosentino North America

When is maneuvering 400 to 700 pound slabs of stone in a fabrication facility most likely to result in injury? Cosentino North America knows the answer, but it’s not sharing that valuable information, and with good reason. It’s among the trends the company has been able to identify since monitoring its employee safety through Gensuite, […]

In the 18 years since Peitsch, chief legal officer and ethics & compliance officer, has been with the company, […]

Eric Koster – Ethan Allen Global Inc.

Eric Koster has never been risk averse. He’s navigated the seas, raced motorcycles and boats, scaled cliffs, flown in small private airplanes and started his own private-practice law firm. “I’ve never been risk averse in anything I’ve done,” Koster says. “All of my activities serve to develop confidence and the ability to view my surroundings, […]

Eric Reicin – MorganFranklin Inc. and MorganFranklin Consulting LLC

Eric Reicin believes there are four levels of in-house counsel: the scribe, the legal practitioner, the trusted advisor and the business partner. “The leading in-house counsels are focusing most of the time on the trusted advisor and the business partner roles,” says Reicin, who is vice president, corporate counsel and general counsel at MorganFranklin Consulting. […]

Hoyt Webb – Legrand North America LLC

To say that Hoyt Webb has international experience would be something of an understatement. His role as vice president and general counsel for Legrand North America, a global provider of products and systems for electrical installations and information networks, requires a good deal of travel, including to the parent company, Legrand S.A., in Limoges, France. […]

Matthew Esber – Interactive Life Forms LLC

Matt Esber’s job isn’t sexy, at least not for the industry he’s in. Esber is general counsel of Interactive Life Forms LLC, a company that manufactures sex toys, occasionally called “sexual health aids” or “marital aids” depending on who you talk to. The company is best known for one of its several products: the Fleshlight. […]

I was honored to be the subject of an article. I enjoy reading Vanguard articles and seeing how other attorneys got to their positions and see their jobs. It's also interesting to see how different law firms partner with the subjects of the articles.

The piece highlighting my company, Bob Baker Enterprises, Inc., came out fabulous. Our company is in the new and used car sales and service industry.

– Wade Poulson, General Counsel, Bob Baker Enterprises Inc.
