Anthony Raimondo – Raimondo & Associates

He’s used to sometimes being bad-mouthed in the media, Anthony Raimondo saying it comes with the territory. “I am a defense attorney and part of my obligation is to take on unpopular causes,” the president of Raimondo & Associates tells Vanguard in May from his office in Fresno, California. “But doing the right thing doesn’t […]

Beatriz Beltranena

Growing up in Guatemala, Beatriz Beltranena remembers being very sick with cancer as a child.

Cathy Konwisarz – National Energy Services Reunited Corp.

However, Chilean mining has been affected by an ongoing rain deficit and urgently needs fresh or industrial water in the near future to sustain operations. […]

Jim Kastenmayer – Viela Bio

Imagine strolling through a park splashed with the greens, yellows and reds of trees, grass and flowers. The gravel or woodchips crunch underfoot as you enjoy exercise, sunshine and good health.

Joe Rose – Onni Group

When Joe Rose was asked whether he could create a new legal department for a Canadian development company poised for a significant U.S. expansion, he didn’t have to look far down his resume to prove that he could. Back in 2017, he helped shepherd the successful completion of the largest tourist attraction in Times Square—the […]
