Mallory Garner – PennyMac Financial Services

Growing up, Mallory Garner remembers her parents encouraging her to become an attorney. Her father was a small business owner and wanted her and her brother to pursue professions that would always be in demand. “I was a strong writer and had a flair for the dramatic, so I chose law school,” says Garner, who […]

Marcus Brown – Entergy Corp.

The New Orleans-based company owns and operates […]

Marcus Reed – Craft Brew Alliance

From golden stouts to black lagers, the world of microbrews proves there’s nothing a dedicated mind can’t make real. Including, it turns out, a career as a beer lawyer. As general counsel for Craft Brew Alliance (CBA), Marcus Reed finds himself at the nexus of two longtime passions: The first, borne from an epiphany on the […]

Martin Felli – JDA Software Group Inc.

Rumors of the demise of brick-and-mortar shopping centers may be exaggerated, but perhaps not greatly. Many trusted old names are going to the ultimate clearance sale of no return. Those left standing tend to be those staying ahead of a hi-tech commerce curve which they may need expertise in navigating. Such expertise can be found […]

Martin Wilson – Teligent

It could’ve been anything. A computer software company. A machine shop. A run-of-the-mill warehouse. It was the definition of non-descript—a utilitarian building in Buena, New Jersey, halfway between Atlantic City and Philadelphia. Martin Wilson knows the bigger picture. Since mid-2017 he’s been a frequent visitor here, keeping tabs on the site’s construction. All told, he […]

Marty Collins – QuinStreet

He says it like someone who’s spoken these words over and over again: “Who wants unwanted phone calls? No one. But sometimes they’ll happen, even with the best, most compliant network, like QuinStreet’s,” says Marty Collins. Collins, QuinStreet’s senior vice president for legal, compliance and corporate development, says he’s not a fan of unwanted sales […]

Marvin Levine – General Growth Properties Inc.

When Marvin Levine came to General Growth Properties (GGP) in 2011, it was a company long overdue for a change. Having recently emerged from bankruptcy proceedings that saw the real estate investment trust’s share price fall by 97 percent over a six-month period, Levine and incoming CEO Sandeep Mathrani were eager for the chance to […]

Masha Trainor – Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation

A worldly background can be indispensable when it comes to international commerce and law, and Masha Trainor got her start early. General counsel and vice president of Ampco-Pittsburgh since June 2015, the Russian-born daughter and sister of doctors came to the United States as a high school student on foreign exchange and never left for […]

Match Group

Few people may realize it, but the dating websites Match.com, OkCupid, Tinder and PlentyOfFish are all owned by the same parent company, Match Group. In all, Match Group owns some 45 online dating brands, each catering to a slightly different market. “They all focus on something unique, even though they’re in the same space,” says […]

Matt DePasquale – Nationwide Title Clearing Inc.

Shortly after being upgraded to associate counsel of Nationwide Title Clearing Inc. in 2013, Matt DePasquale was called into the chief legal officer’s area and given what might have seemed a battlefield promotion. “The boss says, ‘I have a lot on my plate, I need for you to take over litigation,’” DePasquale remembers from his […]

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.
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.
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.
