Features June 2021

Katie Helton – Jack Cooper Investments

It’s a tradition nearly a century old. New vehicles roll off an assembly line with a sparkle and a new car smell, and Jack Cooper’s team hauls them to dealers or drop lots before they end up in someone’s driveway. Founded in 1928 to haul General Motors vehicles from an assembly plant in the Leeds […]

Keri Sweet Zavaglia

From the age of 12, Keri Sweet Zavaglia was a ballerina on the big stage at the Pennsylvania Ballet. Years of training, as rigorous as any boxer’s, gave her the grace and strength to soar through the air, performing a grand jete—only to land lightly moments before a cascade of applause. For years her young […]

Laurie Robinson Haden – CCWC

When Laurie Robinson Haden and 10 of her friends gathered around a dinner table in New York City in 2004, they couldn’t have known how much influence these women of color attorneys would one day wield—in the Big Apple and beyond. What was clear was that, in a city of 57,000 practicing attorneys (according to […]

Marc Marling – CMA CGM North America

There’s an old line that goes if you want something done, give it to a busy person. A busy person who might even consider sleep an essential waste of time, more than adequately getting by on a couple of hours a night. That, in a nutshell, describes Marc Marling who always seems to have projects […]

Marc Spezzano – Citi

Upon being recruited by Citi last summer, one of the first challenges Marc Spezzano faced was confidential concern about a senior employee’s activities. This matter had gone unnoticed by senior management and as the new senior vice president of risk and compliance, it was Spezzano’s job to isolate the risk and prevent it from festering. […]

Marisa Muchnik – Ferrero Canada

When you’re a 5-year-old, life tends to revolve around a few indelible joys: puppies, birthday parties, Christmas morning and—last but not least—candy. As much as you can get your hands on (or whatever Mom and Dad are willing to dispense). But while many sweets have made an impact on children, Marisa Muchnik’s hands-down favorite was […]

Matt Nolan – Safeguard Medical

Matt Nolan’s life likely was spared by first responders using equipment available through a new company he now works for. It’s called Safeguard Medical, and he can vouch for its necessity. For it was in June 2019 when Nolan, then a young lawyer, was struck by a car while jogging near his home in Chicago. […]

Matthew Clarkson – Chugach Electric Association

The monthly utility bills in and around Anchorage, Alaska, have been at least a few dollars less since January, tangible proof that there can be cost savings when neighboring energy producers combine. That’s what happened last October, when Chugach Electric Association acquired a smaller, neighboring utility, Anchorage Municipal Light & Power. The nearly $1 billion […]

Mauricio Riveros Habib – Trina Solar

Solar energy is a hot market in Latin America. But getting into that market as an attorney? Not so hot. Just ask Mauricio Riveros Habib, who’s hustled his way into a position with Trina Solar’s operations in Chile and Peru. As legal counsel, he says his healthy competitive edge—honed through athletics—has been an asset for […]

Mike Jones – Cape Cod Healthcare

By July 4, summer visitors will be streaming over the Bourne and Sagamore bridges to Cape Cod. Finding a patch of open sand to spread a blanket at Craigville Beach might be difficult, and clam shacks will bustle with diners. But the return of tourists will likely not dim the memories of working through the […]

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.
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.
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.
