Features January 2021

Kimberly Eberwine – Procter & Gamble

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For Kimberly Eberwine, serving as general counsel, Canada for global consumer goods giant Procter & Gamble, requires a lot of translating—more so culture than languages. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Eberwine met her Canadian husband while working at Club Med in Mexico. He popped the question when they were living on Grand Cayman a year […]

Jack Garfinkle – PECO Energy

Sure, there are plenty of people who say Corbin Bernsen’s best role was playing Roger Dorn in the “Major League” trilogy. Or when he was Henry Spencer for 120 episodes of “Psych.” But for most people, Bernsen’s most recognizable and most acclaimed part was when he portrayed Arnie Becker for all eight seasons of the […]

Steven Tourek – The Marvin Companies Inc.

At first glance, Warroad, which sits on the shore of Lake of the Woods in the northernmost reaches of Minnesota, appears to be more a haven for hunting, fishing and boating than the site of large-scale manufacturing. The city, population 1,781, is minutes from Canada and miles from anything resembling a metropolis. Yet among the […]

Daniel Deitch – NFI Industries

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Eighteen years ago, Daniel Deitch was deep into plaintiff-sided civil litigation work, most notably handling personal injury cases, plying his trade at a boutique firm in Center City Philadelphia. Already several years into the civil litigation game—which he describes as “nasty and often lacking in basic civility”—Deitch started to question his relationship with the legal […]

Paolo Scortichini – Maserati

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Maserati makes cars that are fast, decadently luxurious—and now, electric. The Italian auto manufacturer made news in 2020 by announcing its vehicles will be all electrified within the next five years, following a global trend away from gasoline-powered cars. Steering that drive is CEO Davide Grasso, who served as chief marketing officer at Nike, then […]

A. Noni Holmes-Kidd – Parkway Property Investments LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The lyrics “there’s a long, long trail a-windin’,” are more than 100 years old, but they still pertain to Parkway Property Investments as it sets a far-ranging course in real estate and development. In the latest twist, Parkway is expanding its commercial office real estate roots into industrial and multifamily asset classes. It’s a challenge […]

Sue-Lynn Noel – Purolator

Est. reading time: 5 mins

By the age of 12, Sue-Lynn Noel knew she wanted to pursue a career in law. Turning that vision into reality was a different story. Not only were there no lawyers in her family; none of them had ever gone to college. It was during a work experience class in high school—an internship at a […]

Ashley Good – Acorns

Est. reading time: 5 mins

As a young child, Ashley Good stored bits of change and odd job money in a bright pink cash box. She’s still watching every dollar today, albeit for much higher stakes at Acorns, a California-based fintech company specializing in micro-investing. The California native joined Acorns in March 2020 as chief legal officer, bringing sales and […]

Melissa Reiter – G Adventures

During this daunting time of a world-wide pandemic, the idea of traveling to Japan to sleep in a Buddhist temple, surfing in Cosa Rica or taking a river tour in France to snack on wine and cheese may feel like a hallucination of the pre-COVID-19 days. But while travel is still possible—albeit restricted in certain […]

Max Lafer – Home Health Care Services of New York

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It was an interesting start for Home Health Care Services of New York. Husband and wife founders Jeff and Agnes Shemia conceived the idea for their Brooklyn-based business while talking on a park bench in 2004 and started building their healthcare dynasty from there. They’d leave all the legal details on how to make it […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
