Est. reading time: 4 mins

With every challenge there can be opportunity, and Ajay Ayyappan could see both in December 2018 upon being promoted to general counsel and senior vice president at operations management and analytics solutions company EXL. A member of the legal team since 2007, Ayyappan was used to what could be a changing office environment, but one […]

Chris Schindler – Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

To paraphrase a popular adage, you can take the man out of Kentucky, but you can’t take Kentucky out of the man. The pull of his roots was so powerful, in fact, that after nearly 25 years at venerated D.C. law firm Hogan & Hartson (now Hogan Lovells)—where Chief Justice John Roberts once practiced—Chris Schindler […]

Jill Hanson Rainford – Round Hill Capital

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Differences may abound in the legal codes of the 20-plus jurisdictions where Jill Hanson Rainford oversees the legal interests of Round Hill Capital. Some subtle differences, some pronounced, but all she must keep abreast in her role with the international real estate investment and asset management firm. The United States and United Kingdom lean toward […]

Mike Traxinger – Agtegra Cooperative

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Mike Traxinger’s world went whizzing by him at the age of 13. Sliding across the 4-H showgrounds on his belly, he had a mouthful of dirt and was desperately clinging on to other end of the rope around his prized heifer as she dragged him back to the barn. The moral of the story, of […]

Michael Novak – SCD

Est. reading time: 6 mins

As a paratrooper in the Israeli military, Michael Novak had no qualms about leaping out of planes at 13,000 feet. Maybe it was the fearlessness that only an 18-year-old could possess or the beauty of the experience itself: freefalling quietly through the sky, time itself seeming to stand still. Whatever the attraction, there’s nothing like […]

Jordan Gurevich – vMOX

Est. reading time: 6 mins

Growth-wise, this new year is looking more and more like a hockey stick to Jordan Gurevich. General counsel of vMOX in Roslyn Heights, New York, Gurevich anticipates his employer sustaining steady, organic expansion largely from its ability to save corporate clients a fortune in mobile telecommunication costs. Think of your own family’s monthly cellular plan, […]

Michael Winschel – Risk International

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Knowing where risk hides and understanding how to manage it are two different things, and neglecting to manage risk can become very costly. Yet where to turn for risk management assessments and options for solutions is an intricate and nuanced challenge. Independent expertise providing knowledgeable, unbiased opinions and recommendations that deliver cost-effective results can be […]

Corey Perman – R1 RCM

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Rules aren’t always to be railed against. Adhering to them can give a company a competitive edge, especially when it stays ahead of the curve. Which is no small feat for a company that manages revenue cycles and provides physician advisory services for some of the nation’s most prominent health care companies. From patient admissions […]

Alex Yastremski – DZS

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It was a cutting-edge telecommunications company in every aspect but one, that being its position of in-house legal counsel had gone unfilled for over a decade. Which was becoming an issue as DZS—DASAN Zhone Solutions—sought to expand its global footprint in the fast-evolving and highly competitive industry of designing and manufacturing broadband access technology and […]

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.
