Flavia Naves – Velo Payments

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Having been among the professional casualties of mergers and acquisitions on different occasions, no one would have faulted Flavia Naves had she stuck with a secure position in the legal department of a large public company. But this past February when Velo Payments, a small but growing Northern California fintech startup, beckoned her to come […]

Hugh Spires Jr. – United Allergy Services

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For some people, the allergies themselves aren’t so much the issue—it’s the treatment. It can be time consuming to go to a weekly allergy appointment. And for a few people, it’s the needles. But no need to pencil out a block of your afternoon—or cringe, sniffle or full-out cry. At least, that’s the goal of […]

William ‘Mac’ McAllister – Terminix

Est. reading time: 4 mins

There really shouldn’t be much categorization of any problem a business may face. Legal, business, personnel, financial—a problem is a problem is a problem. Deal with it early and it can be put to rest before it metastasizes into a more costly problem affecting multiple areas. So notes William McAllister in late August as he […]

Jennifer Turner Harrigan – Symphony Talent

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Mention a certain, locally based national health and wellness organization to folks in the greater Pittsburgh area, and most of them will know exactly who you’re talking about. The second largest integrated delivery and financing system in the country, the organization employs more than 40,000 people, making it one of the region’s largest employers. Dynamic […]

Rich Foehr – Sitecore

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There’s a comic strip Rich Foehr recalls being posted in one of his former stops. Seems a couple of businesspeople had waited too long to run a sticky matter past the corporate legal department. “Now we have to run it past a judge,” a character quips. It’s precisely such a scenario that Foehr strives to […]

Jeremy Osborne – Pegasus Optimization Managers LLC

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Got to hang on to that startup mentality, though the company seems to be anything but a newcomer in the very specialized business of contract compression. So muses Jeremy Osborne about Pegasus Optimization Managers, LLC, which he and former President/CEO Randy Dean co-founded just over four years ago in College Station, Texas. Success mustn’t go […]

Judith Schvimmer – Lagunitas Brewing Co.

Est. reading time: 6 mins

It is indeed the wild west for the nascent cannabis industry, especially when alcohol is in the mix. A left coast brewery with something of an outlaw heritage would seem right at home. Which seems to describe the Lagunitas Brewing Co. in Petaluma, California. Only what passed for its outlaw days now seems, well, if […]

Divya Mehta – KONE

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Getting her foot in the door was Divya Mehta’s first step toward a new job at KONE, allowing this marathoner to run with a new opportunity. Admittedly, Mehta says she wasn’t the ideal candidate for at the $8.9 billion global engineering company that manufactures elevators and escalators in 60 countries worldwide. She had no experience […]

Robert Frankel – Investments & Wealth Institute

Est. reading time: 4 mins

For Robert Frankel, writing became a way of life as he litigated insurance cases for policyholders in Philadelphia at the firm of Anderson Kill & Olick, but not for the usual reasons. To establish himself in the field, he was encouraged to speak and write as much as possible, going above and beyond his workload. […]

Rusty Pickering – Ingo Money

Est. reading time: 4 mins

The insurance company has settled your claim, or your business loan has been approved; great news to be sure. Then you hear “the check is in the mail,” and you wonder how long it will take for your good fortune to come to fruition. Ingo Money Inc. is looking to make that phrase a relic […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
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.
