Features December 2019

Fabiola Ferro – Varian Medical Systems

Waking up to address a court case in Colombia; picking up the phone to discuss legal concerns in Argentina after morning coffee; touching base with a client in Paraguay at lunchtime; and catching up with the sales department in Palo Alto, California, by close of business. Such is a pretty diversified—yet typical—day for Fabiola Ferro […]

Franco Tenerelli – Landsea Homes

Franco Tenerelli likens the homebuilding business at Landsea Homes to zipping around in a small handy speedboat, darting between a fleet of lumbering, slow-moving ships. “We are able to do things quickly and in a timely manner, more so than our competitors,” says Tenerelli, executive vice president and chief legal officer at the Newport Beach, […]

Gary Spiegel – Anaplan

It was six months of head down, nose to the grindstone work. Preparing Anaplan for its IPO in October 2018—and simultaneously capturing the momentum of the software company and the economic climate—required that a core team be constantly assessing, researching and ticking off specific guidelines and checkpoints, all within tight timelines. In other words, explains […]

Gloria Loza Murrugarra – Avianca

When Gloria Loza Murrugarra arrives at Peru’s Jorge Chávez International Airport, she’s fully prepared to stand at the security checkpoint for at least two hours. Only, the wait isn’t due to the usual holdups—having to unlace her shoes, removing her laptop, having to walk through the metal detector five times. Rather, Loza is here by […]

Iván Diego Durontó — AES Argentina

Everyone loves a good story about making an impossible situation possible—but no one more so than Iván Diego Durontó of AES Argentina. With only a month to complete a monstrous financial task—the likes of which the Buenos Aires-based energy company had never before completed—Durontó and his team actively collaborated with an AES Argentina multidisciplinary team […]

James Napoli – Medliminal

It’s been a fast and furious few months for James Napoli, but with any luck he’ll have a chance to sit down at a Washington Redskins game with his sons and check out the fruits of his labors sometime soon. This general counsel-turned-CEO came to work for Virginia-based Medliminal 3 years ago as a consultant […]

James Reiland – CA Ventures

Details matter, and for a real estate investment management firm that’s fast extending its footprint into Europe, and maybe elsewhere, there are devil-ridden details across the widest of maps for General Counsel James Reiland to grasp. Sometimes it may be much to the annoyance of his colleagues at Chicago-based CA Ventures, who may not always […]

Jamie Coss – Moneycorp US

If there is one thing Jamie Coss can appreciate, it’s a good investigator with an eye for detail—especially in an age when the level of international money laundering and fraud is on the rise. Case in point: Coss tells the story of a sophisticated email that was recently intercepted by a member of Moneycorp’s team. […]

Jason Reiser – eMoney Advisor

It’s not something people like to talk about, or even think about, especially when they are young. Yet a lack of financial and retirement planning can come back to haunt people as they get older. As reported in a recent GOBankingRates survey, 64 percent of people asked said they expect to retire with less than […]

Javier Gomez Aguilar – Grupo México

Grupo México, the third largest copper producer in the world, is investing billions of dollars in the three divisions, in its Mexican and Peruvian operations, and there’s a perk to growth in both countries—more than 8,000 jobs. Gomez Aguilar, as the general counsel for the infrastructure division, says the targeted investment will not only generate […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
