Sabiha Chunawala – Juniper Networks Inc.

In retrospect it was a lucky break. Fresh out of the University of Miami School of Law in 1997, with a rich background in criminal justice, Sabiha Chunawala expected to be a prosecutor in Northern California, only to find that the district attorneys’ offices had a hiring freeze with no thaw imminent. But Chunawala, a […]

Sabine Oil & Gas Corporation

The oil and gas business is risky. Very risky. There’s geological and mechanical risk associated with locating and extracting hydrocarbons from thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. And then there’s price risk. Global economies, OPEC decisions, geopolitical events—particularly those in already unstable areas like the Middle East—and even the weather, can all dramatically impact […]

Salvo Vitale – US Wind

Out beyond the breakers, the 32 turbine towers will be sunk nearly 100 feet below the ocean floor and will rise above the water to the height of a 49-story building. The turbines and slow-spinning blades are part of the first Maryland Offshore Wind Project, built to power the state with renewable wind energy projected […]

Sam Germana – Trinitas Regional Medical Center

Over the last 20 years, few industries have endured more upheaval—both good and bad—than health care. From quantum leaps in technology and data gathering to unprecedented security threats, the landscape that providers have navigated has ceaselessly shifted, often to the point of quaking beneath their feet. Ask Sam Germana, however, and he’ll tell you there’s […]

Samuel Logan – Afiniti

Let’s say you’re on the phone with customer service for your cable company or cell phone provider; waiting on hold, rocking out to the Muzak. Typically, you’d be paired up with the next available representative. But in this instance, algorithms working behind the scenes use data about you and the agents on duty to create […]

Samuel Vaisman – San Martin Contratistas Generales

Do I want to be a doctor, or a lawyer? It’s a question many high-achieving students are forced to confront—including Samuel Vaisman. He may have only chosen one of these prestigious pursuits, but for Vaisman, it often feels like he’s practicing both. “Being a good general counsel is like being a good general practitioner,” explains […]

Sara M. Cunnard – FARO Technologies

Like so many great mottos, it stands the test of time. “If you’re not growing, you’re dying,” Sara M. Cunnard says, sharing a sentiment expressed in some form or another by everyone from Bob Dylan to the 1994 classic “The Shawshank Redemption.” That way of thinking should keep her in good standing with FARO Technologies, […]

Sarah Barry Nupdal – Bell Bank

What do Oprah Winfrey and North Dakota’s Bell Bank have in common? That would be Bell Bank’s charitable Pay It Forward program, inspired by the TV icon 16 years ago. Since its inception in 2008, more than $15 million in charitable donations have been given by the Fargo financial institution, making headlines in the process […]

Sarah Fisher – The Parking Spot

For Sarah Fisher, the law was a calling she heard from an early age. In the second grade, she dressed in a suit and carried a briefcase to Career Day. By the fifth grade, she was passing out handmade business cards for the “law firm” she had started. Sure, her aspirations had a lot to […]

Saygus

He’s an innovator by trade and a visionary by philosophy, but Chad Sayers—unlike the other folks profiled in Vanguard—is no lawyer. Having never completed his undergrad studies at Dixie College, the only diploma Sayers can claim is from the school of hard knocks. But it’s there where the energetic and sometimes eccentric man thinks he […]
