Alon Rotem – thredUP

Alon Rotem remembers receiving a phone call from a customer who bought a used purse from thredUP. From all outward appearances everything was as advertised: the design, the condition, the way she imagined it looking on her shoulder. When the customer reached inside, however, she found something she didn’t expect: $500 in cash. The purse […]

Anna Aguilar – Aguilar Bentley LLC

It’s not exactly a modern-day retelling of the David versus Goliath saga, but when it comes to Aguilar Bentley’s track record in New York City law, some of the story’s elements might well ring true. Replace the two guys with women, one being a mother of triplets. Then consider that the small feisty firm—founded in […]

Carlo Cotrone – Baker Hughes

With 19 years’ combined experience in private and corporate law practice, Carlo Cotrone is no stranger to legal, technological and business complexity. An intellectual property counselor, strategist and manager, he relishes collaborating with clients, colleagues and external parties to navigate challenging issues. “I always strive to see the bigger picture,” Cotrone tells Vanguard in July. […]

Caroline Elkin – Activision

The Barclays Center’s regular tenants, the NBA’s Nets and NHL’s Islanders, don’t always draw such a crowd. But last summer, the Brooklyn arena played host to the Overwatch League finals, drawing 20,000 zealous spectators to London Spitfire’s victory over Philadelphia Fusion in an action-packed video game competition where the best players in the world went […]

Detra Lynn Mills – Round Room LLC

Detra Lynn Mills is in love with a red brick, century-old former elementary school in Indianapolis, but not because of its artful floor-to-ceiling windows or its placement on the National Register of Historic Places. Instead, it’s what happens inside the repurposed school building at an agency called Coburn Place Safe Haven that caught her attention. […]

Dianna DeVore – Inscripta Inc.

In some afterlife, Dr. David Livingstone might well be nodding in approval of Inscripta Inc.’s lofty agenda. “Feed, fuel and heal the world,” this young biotech proclaims from its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado—an objective similar to what the late missionary martyr undertook in Africa during the 19th century. If Inscripta is to succeed in its […]

Erin Wiggins – TS Tech Americas Inc.

It’s the world’s seventh largest automaker by volume, the Japanese-owned Honda Motor Co., which churns out around 5 million vehicles annually. Wherever it’s doing so, there’s likely to be a TS Tech installation nearby, producing the specialized seats and door liners as well as other interior necessities and accessories. Partially owned by Honda, there are […]

Gastón Tarabal – Peninsula Investments Group

It’s a trend he hopes continues in Latin America, both from a social and business perspective. Long known as a region beset by poverty, there’s a middle class growing slowly in many of the countries and with it the need for quality, middle-income multifamily housing in urban environments. And that’s where Gaston Tarabal’s employer is […]

Heather Walker – Triple Crown

Everyday Heather Walker finds herself channeling the creative energies of a legion of young technological employees bent on helping to put a “ding in the universe.” These are the consultants-for-hire who get job placement through Triple Crown, a $100 million Austin-based, high-tech employment firm that specializes in connecting hardware and software engineers with specialty projects. […]

Jeffrey Gautsche – MTX Group Inc.

Jeffrey Gautsche jokes that his greatest challenge at MTX Group Inc. is keeping pace with founder Das Nobel’s vision for expansion. The Albany, New York-based salesforce and staffing company is expanding in pockets around the world, making good on its goals of achieving significant growth by 2025. That means plenty to do for Gautsche, who […]
