Amanda Demas – BMO Harris Financial Advisors

General counsel and vice president of BMO Harris Financial Advisors since October 2015, Amanda Demas recalls how with a previous firm she witnessed an aggressive middle-aged son bringing his very elderly mother into an office and practically strong-arming her into restructuring her portfolio to his favor. “Prior to then, his mother was always on top […]

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, […]

Amy Morrissey – Computacenter US

It was a process that Amy Morrissey likened to setting up an arranged marriage, albeit one with billions of dollars on the line: evaluating potential suitors looking to buy her company. For 13 years, Morrissey had been the general counsel and corporate secretary at FusionStorm, an award-winning IT solutions provider based in Boston. There was […]

Anahi Llop – OLX Brazil

There it is: the wheels you’ve always wanted; a scarf that will make you look stylish while you drive; the handbag that brings the whole look together. And now, after endless online searches, you’ve finally found someone who’s selling them—not at retail, but as a gently used item that fits perfectly in your budget. For […]

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, […]

Andrew Filler – Sherpa Technology Group

Self-quarantined and watching a lot of television? Maybe on an ultra high-def screen with COVID-19 dominating the news cycle? If so, welcome to the crowd, and you may want to acknowledge the impact one attorney is having on your new daily routine. In a good way, at that. He’s Andrew Filler, general counsel of California-based […]

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 […]

Angela Petrucci – NBH Bank

In the four and a half years since Angela Petrucci joined Denver-based NBH Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Bank Holdings Corp., the organization has surpassed a quarry’s worth of milestones. It established itself as a publicly-traded company. It converted to a Colorado state-chartered bank in 2016. It acquired two banks in 2017. It refined […]

Angie Soety – American Management Services

It was Angie Soety’s plan when she stepped in as general counsel: get American Management Services as digitized and automated as possible to meet the demands—and expectations—of the 21st century. And then, COVID-19 hit. “It put everything on fast forward,” she says. The pandemic forced the Orlando business management consulting firm to not only implement, but fully embrace, […]

Anthony “Tony” Nolte – Open Mortgage

While Anthony “Tony” Nolte may not have known much about the mortgage industry aside from the details of his own loan, his decades of business development and legal experience at Shell Oil made him a likely choice to be CFO and general counsel at Open Mortgage. To be sure, the lending regulatory details he’s learning […]

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.
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.
