Mariana Oliveira – Torneos

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It was business as usual one day, and the world was turned upside-down the next, when a FIFA soccer bribery scandal rocked the world at Torneos. At least that’s how Mariana Oliveira, the legal manager at the Buenos Aires-based audiovisual producer and sports marketing company, remembers that day in 2015 when it was announced that […]

Raymond Millien – Volvo Car Corporation

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Sensors that ensure your vehicle stays centered in the lane. Cameras that help drivers pull off the most daunting of parallel parking jobs. Bluetooth technology to help drivers keep their phone conversations hands-free.

Araceli Enriquez – Takeda

Est. reading time: 6 mins

When the Doctor Vagón health train started rolling into marginalized villages across the Mexican countryside this year, the medical team aboard was delivering a message of hope and information to hundreds of people suffering from one of the country’s biggest killers: diabetes. The Vagón train and a cancer patient assistance program to help those who […]

Michael Fralin — Somera Road Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s a strategy that involves far more than one-note purchases, you could say about the business plan of New York-based Somera Road Inc. and it’s making some sweet music for its investors. It was an approach that began with Somera Road focusing on distressed commercial building loans and properties from the 2008 recession, then expanded […]

Marty Lorenzo – Petco

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Like the Marine he is, Marty Lorenzo is on a mission to support Petco’s legal team by fostering committed troops. The goal?

Diana Abril – Ilumno

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Growing up in a remote area in Latin America, technologically detached from the world—and where one’s friends and relatives may have never received a formal education—might make getting a college degree out of reach and low on the list of life’s priorities. But underserved populations, historically without access to education, in Latin America have been […]

Nicolás Ruiz– Falck/Grupo Emi

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The waiting may be the hardest part for anyone visiting a hospital emergency room, and there will be plenty of it. In the U.S., ER wait times range from an average of 11 minutes in Utah to 49 minutes in Washington, D.C. The time until a patient is sent home averages 91 minutes in North […]

Daniel Altikes – Antofagasta Minerals

Est. reading time: 4 mins

After spending several years learning the nuances of the mining industry—from early-stage exploration to every aspect of the mining operation—Daniel Altikes was given his biggest challenge to date: Help Chilean-based Antofagasta Minerals broaden its international presence. A small country in the African continent was one of the first stops. From the second he stepped off […]

Ana Cristina Flores Peña – Absormex CMPC Tissue

Est. reading time: 4 mins

An in-house role, ideally a general counselship, had long been among Ana Cristina Flores Peña’s professional goals. Only she thought it could wait until later in her career, like perhaps when she was in her mid-30s. She wouldn’t have to wait that long, for in 2017 the opportunity presented itself at the Mexican division of […]

Testimonials

As promised in advance, my feature in Vanguard has increased my visibility within the profession and prompted more than a few people I have not communicated with recently to reconnect. One of the Italian law firms I have used in the past is now in the process of interviewing me for an article on their website and tweeting out the feature story. Activity and the number of people connecting with me on LinkedIn has soared, which is great. The Vanguard writers and editorial staff were great to work with—highly professional and made the effort to make the experience both fun and rewarding (they were also respectful of the time pressures and demands all lawyers face). I was very pleased with the experience and the final outcome. Needless to say, I have been very pleased. All in all working with Vanguard has been a very positive experience which generated good publicity for both Shawcor and myself. My sincere thanks.
– Tim Hutzul, General Counsel, ShawCor Ltd.
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.
– Henry Marquard, in-house counsel, Stanley Consultants Inc.
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. Everyone was great to work with and extremely professional. They produced a high-quality product and have provided expert assistance and guidance post-production of the article.
– Wade Poulson, General Counsel, Bob Baker Enterprises Inc.
It was a great honor to be featured in Vanguard Law. Working with every member of the team, from the initial interview with Erin Clark, through production with Victor Martins, writing the article with Taryn Plumb and creating the final content with Dave Gushee, was a true pleasure. Everyone was very professional, enthusiastic and supportive, and their creative approach and positive attitude clearly came through in the final product.
– Kevin C. Rakowski, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Compliance with Radian Group Inc.
