Kate Mahan – United Federal Credit Union

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Her employer having four focuses, Kate Mahan is immersed in all, with something called process excellence at the top of the list. It being a most general focus, process excellence can be anything and everything, but whatever it is on a given day, it’s likely to involve Mahan collaborating with other departments at United Federal […]

Timothy Chow – Diageo

With socially responsible commerce on the rise, consumers are becoming more and more conscious of not only what they buy, but from whom. For many businesses, this means putting more emphasis on integrity. “It’s about understanding what people’s lived realities are, striving to elevate ethical decision-making in all our endeavors and really committing to what […]

Matt Nolan – Safeguard Medical

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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. […]

Katie Helton – Jack Cooper Investments

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

Barry Shulock – TechSource

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Even in the white sands and sagebrush of New Mexico, there are times when the coal fields of southwestern Pennsylvania remain vividly in mind for Barry Shulock. Those fields are where he gained his appreciation and respect for people—and the dignity of a job. As vice president, general counsel and director of human resources for […]

Jim Jenkins – Transcat

Est. reading time: 5 mins

With this much effort put into closing a Transcat acquisition, Jim Jenkins could have been mistaken for a postal carrier. Indeed, “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night,” deterred Jenkins that night in December 2020, as he drove home through a blizzard from Richmond, Virginia, to Rochester, New York. As general counsel […]

William Potter – University Loft Company

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When William “Bill” Potter was hired as general counsel at University Loft Company, it was facing three lawsuits. Prior to his hiring, the company had been trying to address all three at once, which Potter described as a game of “Whac-A-Mole.” After studying the cases, each involving the federal government, he decided to implement an […]

Amanda S. Luby – CaptiveOne Advisors LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It may not be a case of “all things being equine” for Amanda S. Luby, but even her most complex legal challenges are rarely two degrees of separation from the equine industry. Luby, the executive vice president and general counsel for CaptiveOne Advisors LLC, manages legal affairs for a company that’s growing in a little […]

Matthew Clarkson – Chugach Electric Association

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

Marc Marling – CMA CGM North America

Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

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.
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.
