Susan Fornaro – Klöckner Pentaplast

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Klöckner Pentaplast’s products are found in refrigerators, medicine cabinets, wallets and even underfoot on a vinyl floor. Since 1965, and now in 31 plants in 18 countries, the company has supplied plastic packaging and product films, even as consumers may take that packaging for granted while opening a container holding what’s for dinner. What’s not […]

As spring comes to northwestern Pennsylvania, a walk in the woods at Sinnemahoning State Park in Cameron County is an invigorating way to celebrate the change of seasons. Then, visitors can pop into the Wildlife Center to learn more about the eagles, bears and elk inhabiting the park. As one of many public sector construction […]

Tim Schade – Lifetime Products

Est. reading time: 3 mins

Remember when a woman sued Coca-Cola after being hit in the eye with a Sprite bottle cap after she dropped the drink on the ground? Tim Schade certainly does. Specifically, he remembers thinking it wasn’t the company’s fault—that the bottled dropped and became pressurized, or that the cap shot off and struck the woman when […]

Tiffany Sams – IHI E&C International

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The energy industry being cyclical, demand has been down for liquid natural gas, but the brass at Kinder Morgan Inc. figures it will rebound. When it does, the Houston energy infrastructure company is positioned to take advantage with the newly completed retrofit of its LNG import facility near Savannah, Georgia. It’s called the Elba Liquefaction […]

Danielle Sheer – Bottomline Technologies

Est. reading time: 4 mins

More than 10 years ago, Danielle Sheer took a contemplative walk from her midtown Manhattan office back to her Upper West Side apartment. As an attorney at a big-city firm, she’d just finished helping a company through an acquisition and realized she had no practical reason to stay in touch with her clients. “I had […]

Andrew Stillufsen – Roehm America

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Here’s the situation. After graduating from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Andrew Stillufsen wasn’t sure what he wanted to do. So, like so many other 20-somethings, he headed to the Jersey Shore and worked at his family’s seafood restaurant, Red’s Lobster Pot.

David Gonzales – Supermercado El Rancho

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There’s a special feeling when you walk into a Supermercado El Rancho, the rapidly expanding Mexican supermarket chain with a growing presence in Texas and likely soon elsewhere. Call it a vibe that transcends the festive décor and eclectic product lines. Clearly, this isn’t your parents’ standard Kroger or Publix, says Chief Legal Counsel and […]

Jessica Hodkinson – Panasonic Corporation of North America

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Agility, efficiency, greater use of technology and increased communications—how the past year has accelerated these trends. But it was in 2018 when Jessica Hodkinson made the business case for all that as she centralized legal operations at Panasonic Corp. of North America. At the time, it just made sense to Hodkinson, a member of the […]

Caroline Miller Oyler – Papa John’s International

Est. reading time: 4 mins

She wishes the company’s recent growth wasn’t partially the result of a pandemic that’s closed so many sit-down restaurants, but the market for takeout pizza has been especially productive for Papa John’s International. The now Louisville- and Atlanta-headquartered delivery restaurant chain hired more than 20,000 new employees last year and had a record 2020 in […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
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.
