Karla Jones-Wilson – Foutch Brothers LLC

For years, every time Karla Jones-Wilson visited the 19,500-seat Kemper Arena, whether for a college basketball game or Disney On Ice with her kids, she couldn’t help but think she was enjoying the Kansas City landmark for the last time. By 2015, the arena—like many built in the 1970s—had fallen on hard times, precipitated by […]

Kelly Slavitt – Reckitt Benckiser

Whether we realize it or not, we are guided through the world by the unspoken language of visual branding. That is, design elements—colors, images, shapes, materials, finishes and typography—that communicate a company’s or product’s values, personality and intended use. Look behind that branding and you’ll find marketing minds who ponder, for instance, just how yellow […]

Kelvin Sellers – Interstate Batteries Inc.

It’s a fairly standard line from a general counsel: You have one client and that’s the company itself. Kelvin Sellers, who heads legal as well as internal audit for Interstate Batteries Inc., can recite that statement as well as anyone, but the upbeat 43-year-old man may just take it to another level. That one client, […]

Kelvin Smith – Big 12 Conference

You could say that Kelvin Smith got into the game at a crucial moment that’s only intensified. For it was last September when the now 32-year-old Harvard Law grad left his position as vice president of business and legal affairs of Learfield, a sports marketing company in Dallas, to assume the newly created position of […]

Kevin P. Mullally – Gaming Laboratories International

Keyvan Ghaytanchi – BEB Capital

Ideally located in East Harlem near the soon-to-be-opened Second Avenue subway stop, it was the right size, the right price, the right market—a place bound to sell in this up-and-coming neighborhood, Keyvan Ghaytanchi recalls about the property the company’s broker told him about on a Monday afternoon in 2017. Within hours, Ghaytanchi was sitting down […]

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.
