Christine Johnson – Le Duff America

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In 1983, a businessman moved from France to Dallas, Texas, where he dreamed of recreating the perfect baguette in a region defined by barbecue and tortillas. In pursuit of his vision, la Madeleine, a bakery and cafe in Dallas, was born. A cult-like following throughout the city developed for fast French fare, blossoming into a […]

Kristen Hughes – Elevate Textiles

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The textile mills of today are a far cry from those of the 19th century, before countries shifted from agrarian to urban industrial economies. Before the shift, weary workers found little solace from working in poor and often dangerous conditions, typically for low wages and long hours. These days, new technologies, better business and labor […]

Nate Bailey – FLEXcon Holdings

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Quite the balancing act FLEXcon Holdings committed to five years ago when its owner and CEO decided to prepare for the next generation of leadership. Noted for its pressure-sensitive film products used in outdoor advertising and product labeling, the Massachusetts company sought to become world-class in leadership, employee development and governance while maintaining its family […]

Betsy Philpott – Washington Nationals

Est. reading time: 4 mins

“Next year” has arrived, and while it’s had ups and downs for the Washington Nationals, at least baseball is returning to normal with a 162-game schedule, turnstiles opening to capacity and no more cardboard cutouts as placeholders for fans. An afternoon at Nationals Park is again an event to relish for the team’s passionate general […]

Leisa Talbert Peschel – Jackson Walker

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For Leisa Talbert Peschel and Wasif Qureshi, partners at the Texas-based law firm Jackson Walker, no two cases are ever the same. Then again, there aren’t many massive lawsuits between two, multibillion-dollar companies. In February of 2019, ESW Holdings, a private equity company, filed a lawsuit against digital streaming giant Roku for allegedly infringing on […]

Laurence Kraemer – Northwell Health

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It would be easy to say Larry Kraemer has seen better days at Northwell Health, a comprehensive health care system operating in and around New York City. After all, even as Northwell Health grows—in part because of Kraemer’s expertise in tax and corporate finance—it’s also been at the epicenter of COVID-19 pandemic. That made it […]

Anthony Wilson – Design.ME Hair

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Anthony Wilson didn’t go on a shopping trip for healthy and beauty products in Paraguay because he has exotic tastes.  Wilson ventured south, instead, in search of fake products as general counsel for Moroccanoil. He’s also helped set up sting operations in those regions to protect the company’s brands from infringement and counterfeiting. It was […]

Jason Dubchak – Rockpoint Gas Storage

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As the world moves away from fossil fuels, blending hydrogen with natural gas is a possible solution for countries, industries and individuals looking to reduce their carbon footprints—and Jason Dubchak is right in the thick of it as general counsel for Rockpoint Gas Storage. Recently, Dubchak and Rockpoint’s CEO, Toby McKenna, sat down with Vanguard […]

Timothy Norton – Health First

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In early August, Timothy Norton’s phone started ringing off the hook—and the news wasn’t good. Just when he thought a semi-vaccinated public might put COVID-19 in the rear-view mirror, the CEO of Health First’s Hospital Division told him available space in South and Central Florida hospitals was dwindling fast. As system vice president, associate general […]

Luis Augusto (Lucho) Zelaya – Banco Industrial, S.A., Guatemala

Est. reading time: 3 mins

When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in 2020, most companies shut their doors and scrambled to move services online. While many banks scaled back, as well, Lucho Zelaya says Banco Industrial took a different approach, adding to its online services. According to Zelaya, BI’s legal manager, even before the pandemic, digital enhancements were making legal and […]

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.
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.
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.
