Features October 2020

Ryan Hurley – Copperstate Farms

Turns out, when it comes to spearheading a long-overdue societal change, persistency and passion are necessary—if by no means sufficient. Ryan Hurley has been fighting the good fight for well over a decade, trying to relax Arizona’s still-stringent marijuana laws so that recreational possession and use—with regulation and taxation—can be as legal there as in […]

Shahin Timdarazar – GKN Automotive

When Shahin Timdarazar started his job at GKN Automotive in January of 2019, it was pretty clear what his manager was expecting: change. In the wake of its acquisition in 2018—when the UK-headquartered company that once made Minis and Spitfires was bought by Melrose Industries—a firm known to buy, improve and sell manufacturing outfits—change was […]

Siddhartha M. Venkatesan – Komline-Sanderson

It was an energizing experience, Siddhartha M. Venkatesan recalls with a good-natured laugh. After all, it’s a rare thing for a 40-something family man—already well accomplished and with a high-profile position at a demanding company—to enroll in an MBA program. But earlier this summer the now 42-year-old Venkatesan earned that honor from the prestigious Wharton […]

Susan Bridgman – Emerald Advisors, representing Teradata and Field Aerospace Inc.

It was an eleventh hour emergency, Susan Bridgman says, when she received a news flash from the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security this spring: Changes were being made to regulatory codes that would impact trade practices between her San Diego software client and its customers in China and Russia—not exactly what one wants to […]

Teresa Bernstein – ACON Investments

In the world of investments, Teresa Bernstein says navigating high finance is a lot like swimming in open water: You must frequently look up for a landmark to guide you—or else it’s easy to veer off course or get swept away by the current. Bernstein would know. With three titles at the Washington, D.C.-based firm […]

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.
