Alizah Diamond – Regional Cancer Care Associates

As Regional Cancer Care Associates, one of the nation’s largest cancer care networks, began celebrating its fifth year of success in 2016, an ambitious agenda was being readied. At the time, RCCA’s only in-house attorney, Terrill Jordan, was promoted to president and CEO and a search commenced for his legal successor. The ideal candidate would […]

Amer Moorhead – Tradeshift

Amer Moorhead’s extracurricular activity has something in common with his professional life. To a point, that is. You see, the 51-year-old man is an obsessive marathon runner, albeit one who’s been advised by two surgeons that his pavement-pounding days are slowing down. It seems that 67 marathons—and the training that went into each—have necessitated ACL, […]

Andrew Burke – Barton & Associates Inc.

Locum tenens is not a legal term that trips lightly off the tongue. But the Latin phrase can mean a great deal to people in need of health or spiritual care—it refers to someone who temporarily fills a staffing need, especially as a physician or clergy. Barton & Associates Inc. does not supply the latter, […]

Andy Iverson – American Bath Group LLC

There are some things in life everyone needs. A bathroom, for example. Moving from the construction and energy industries to a once family-owned now multibillion-dollar business, Andy Iverson says he was a perfect match to serve as general counsel for American Bath Group, a fast-paced manufacturing company looking to change the bathware industry. “I get […]

Ariadna Padilla – Takeda Pharmaceutical

It’s an instance where the new kid on the block really needs someone with experience to help show them the ropes. But as Japan-based Takeda Pharmaceutical enhanced its presence in the Latin and South American markets through its acquisition of Irish-based Shire, the former Shire regional legal team led by Legal Counsel Ariadna Padilla finds […]

Christopher Parent – Johnson Controls

It’s been a new product line, as well as geographical base, since last summer when Christopher Parent took his skills in intellectual property from the Nintendo of America legal department to Johnson Controls. The former, of course, is a Japan-based company noted for consumer electronics as well as such video games as The Legend of […]

Emma Channing — Satis Group LLC

Emma Channing says about 70 percent of Americans have less than $5,000 in their 401(k) accounts—and that’s not OK. In fact, the CEO and general counsel of Satis Group says the numbers amount to a ticking time bomb. The casualties? They’re more likely to be women—and those earning less income. That situation is among the […]

Gareth Carline – Heli-One

When he was in private practice, Gareth Carline regularly wondered why so many corporate clients waited so long to seek professional advice. “I was often thinking, ‘if you had talked to me earlier, we could have avoided this problem,’” he tells Vanguard in March. The past seven years, Carline hasn’t had to be so reactive, […]

Jeffrey C. Pepe – Silverback Therapeutics

Talk to Jeffrey C. Pepe and it’s obvious he’s as much scientist as legal boss of Seattle-based biopharmaceutical startup Silverback Therapeutics, advancing potent first-in-kind immunotherapies. He’ll put in layman’s terms the complex immunotherapies Silverback anticipates bringing into the clinic later this year. If all goes well—and that’s an issue considering how COVID-19 threatens to set […]

Jennifer Chung – AccuWeather

For nearly 60 years, AccuWeather has belied one of Bob Dylan’s most iconic lyrics: “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” What began as a service in central Pennsylvania disseminating localized weather forecasts has blown up like an all-encompassing low-pressure front. Today, AccuWeather forecasts are found online, in print, over […]
