Agenor Correa — Panama Canal Authority

For nearly ten years, government officials, construction companies and laborers worked to expand and improve the Panama Canal by making even more passable the 48 miles of manmade lakes, locks and infrastructure essential to the international transport of goods between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The major improvements included the addition of a third set […]

Alejandra Castro – Bayer Corporation

When discussing what inspired them to choose their profession or specialty, most lawyers will cite a famous TV or film attorney, or perhaps a parent or relative who practiced law. For Alejandra Castro, it was a poet, and that poet was her. “When I was writing poetry, I became interested in the rights of creation, […]

Ido Warshavski – Lumenis

It’s an image at once historic and haunting: a nine-year-old Vietnamese girl, naked and screaming in the street, black smoke billowing in the background. To many, Nick Ut’s Pulitzer-winning photo, taken in 1972 near a small Vietnamese village, about 25 miles northwest of Saigon, is a timeless token to the horrors of war. But for […]

Joe Miller – Rose Acre Farms

Across Indiana’s amber waves of grain, farmers who have never met Joe Miller may have reason to be grateful to the man who, since 2004, has served as general counsel of one of the nation’s largest egg producers, after enhancing his unique mix of legal and agricultural creds in the Hoosier State and elsewhere. For […]

John Fenner – Turner Industries

It was late October, and as John Fenner spoke with Vanguard, he wished the Houston Astros well as they battled the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series. As vice president and chief ethics and compliance officer of the heavy industrial contractor Turner Industries, Fenner felt a kinship with the Texas metropolis that the American […]

Paul C. Nightingale – HP Hood

With the holiday season in full swing when Paul C. Nightingale spoke to Vanguard, cartons of Southern Comfort’s nonalcoholic eggnog were hitting the checkout counters at grocery stores everywhere. But what consumers might not have known was that their favorite spicy beverage only bears the brand name of the famous Dixie whiskey distiller. It’s actually […]

Paul D. Tanaka – Kirkland & Ellis

When Paul D. Tanaka interviewed for a position in 2006, with the global heavyweight firm of Kirkland & Ellis, he seemed to have all the credentials to acquit himself in the increasingly complicated area of environmental law. Though just 31, the University of Hawaii law grad had distinguished himself as a trial lawyer with the […]

Scott Boylan – MorphoTrust USA

The nation still reeling from the Sept. 11 attacks of the year before, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security came into being in late 2002, and among the early advisers to Secretary Tom Ridge was a lawyer in his early 40s who had built up credentials as impressive as they were esoteric. Scott Boylan was […]

Shannon Dwyer – Providence St. Joseph Health

In the midst of national uncertainty about access to healthcare, and growing concern regarding cuts to government programs, Providence St. Joseph Health—one of the country’s largest not-for-profit health care organizations—is taking action to transform the delivery of its services. During this time, Shannon Dwyer steps into a new role as special adviser to the organization’s […]

Sofia Haro-Arguello – Cypress High School

As a high school sophomore, Sofia Haro-Arguello was given what, for many, might’ve seemed a simple assignment: write about your family. Upon seeing that the essay focused exclusively on Sofia and her mother, the teacher was somewhat skeptical. Surely there was more to tell, more people to talk about. Mom, meanwhile, cried at the first […]
