Gabriel Hoyos – Under Armour

Like the sports teams that wear its high-performance apparel and footwear, Under Armour can experience streaks hot and cold. Often, to borrow from sports jargon, it must change on the fly, make a halftime adjustment or shuffle the lineup. Which is what its Latin American division has been doing—putting more emphasis on its products for […]

Gabriela Bogantes – Pfizer

Even for a kindergartner, the task was whimsical: use the boxes of costumes to dress up for your future job. While her classmates reluctantly rummaged through the various wares, blending careers like watercolor paints, Gabriela Bogantes went straight for the briefcase and necktie. Her teacher didn’t even bother to ask. “I always knew I wanted […]

Gail Sharps Myers: Senior Vice President and General Counsel with Snyder’s-Lance Inc.

Gail Sharps Myers started planning for her career early. When she was a child, it was astronaut, actress and lawyer that topped her list of prospective professions. “Eventually I realized I didn’t have the math skills to be an astronaut and being an actress was just not in the cards, but my uncle was a […]

Gary M. Stern – National Archives and Records Administration

When Hilary Clinton’s email scandal broke, lawsuits landed on Gary M. Stern’s desk. Stern is general counsel for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the agency that both stores permanent government records and sets the rules for what records federal agencies have to keep and for how long. Because NARA tells the State Department […]

Gastón Tarabal – Peninsula Investments Group

It’s a trend he hopes continues in Latin America, both from a social and business perspective. Long known as a region beset by poverty, there’s a middle class growing slowly in many of the countries and with it the need for quality, middle-income multifamily housing in urban environments. And that’s where Gaston Tarabal’s employer is […]

GC Erin Bagley puts the “cover” in Coverys

Amidst the cacophony of the national health insurance debate—over who pays what and how; and of when liability comes into play—one voice always seems drowned in the din: that of practitioners providing the care. It’s a conundrum Erin Bagley knows only too well. As general counsel for Coverys, a medical professional liability insurer headquartered in […]

Gennaro Savastano – LGBT Bar Association of Greater New York

A teenager from a rural town kicked out of his home for coming out as gay. A trans employee fired from her job after management demanded she stop using the women’s bathroom. A mom in danger of losing custody because she’s a non-biological parent. Gennaro Savastano knows that many people who walk into one of […]

George Jurch – Continental

A proud Gamecock, George Jurch has attended alumni banquets at which the estimable Lou Holtz has spoken. “The best motivational speaker I ever heard,” says Jurch of the retired football coach whose years at the University of South Carolina were marked by a couple of Outback Bowl victories in the early 2000s. “Every time you […]

George Melo – Andron Construction Corp

For most first-time general counsels, the in-house learning curve can feel like scaling a building. Luckily, George Melo was still wearing his climbing gear. After nearly two decades in the world of private practice, much of it spent working in a “pseudo-GC capacity” of outside counsel for market sector leading commercial and business clients, Melo […]

George Milionis – Petersen-Dean Inc.

He couldn’t be too specific because negotiations were still in progress, but George Milionis anticipates that in fairly short order Petersen-Dean, Inc. may expand operations into an eighth state. General counsel and corporate secretary since 2015, Milionis has helped enhance his employer’s status as one of the nation’s preeminent roofing, solar and home energy contractors. […]

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.
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.
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.
