Features January 2020

Rich Suminski – TE Connectivity

When your company goes from being part of a global conglomerate to a spin-off, it’s not always a great story. That might’ve seemed the case with the collapse of Tyco—at the time, one of the world’s biggest corporations, with 240,000 employees—shocking shareholders and the US economy. The CEO, CFO and board resigned, the stock plummeted and […]

Shawnte Mitchell – Aptevo Therapeutics

Will the data provide strong, tangible results or prove inconclusive? Will patients feel positive, negative or no side effects? And, most essentially, will the new therapies serve as a cure for the insidious disease that is cancer? Right now is a critical time for Aptevo Therapeutics and its several oncology therapies. With many potential treatments […]

Stefania Geraci – Grassi & Co.

During her time as General Counsel for the North American arm of Italian eyewear giant Luxottica, Stefania Geraci’s duties covered just about every conceivable legal base: contracts, compliance, intellectual property (IP), mergers and acquisitions (M&A), real estate, litigation, risk management, health care—you get the idea. That she oversaw all these functions at a company long […]

Steve Earnest – Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation

You’re in the air—loop-de-looping, twisting, up and down. The adrenaline’s pumping, the wind’s whipping your face, your stomach is in knots, you’re screaming yourself hoarse. It’s the rollercoaster rush. But after a minute or so of heart-pounding chaos, it’s over, and you’re dizzily on your way (or maybe jumping back in line for another go-around). […]

Su-Jin Lee – POPSUGAR

This past summer, more than 15,000 people gathered in New York City for the second annual POPSUGAR Play/Ground festival. Over a two-day period, attendees enjoyed an interview with Chrissy Teigen with a surprise visit from her daughter Luna; workouts with Tone It Up’s Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott; live podcasts by author Alisa Vitti; a […]

Thaddeus Stephens – The Myers-Briggs Co.

After more than 60 years of making personality assessments used to develop management and other soft skills, The Myers-Briggs Co. is adept at helping determine what motivates people. Yet it found itself in need of a self-assessment over the last couple of years, in its business models, its place in the corporate world, and in […]

Tracy Jacobson – Elite Dental Partners

Dentists nearing retirement—or those who don’t want to handle the headaches associated with owning a small business—have something to smile about. Business at Chicago-based Elite Dental Partners, a five-year-old dental service organization, is on the rise, according to its Chief Legal Officer Tracy Jacobson. Buying more than 90 dental practices nationwide in the past two […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
