Rudolph Technologies Inc.

Bob Koch—that’s Koch as in Cook, not Coke—never lacked for intellectual curiosity, and he had the resume to prove it, when Rudolph Technologies Inc. was looking for a general counsel in the spring of 2003. It wasn’t just legal acumen that Rudolph wanted; someone also well-versed in business would have an edge. Even more so […]

Rudy Reyes – Verizon

When Rudy Reyes was 16, he received a full scholarship to leave his home in Houston, Texas, to attend Boston’s highly selective Milton Academy boarding school. Although he was initially reluctant to attend, his parents knew it was an opportunity for a young Hispanic student in the 1980s, and they encouraged him to accept the offer. […]

Rusty Hensley – Vispero

When you’re the only lawyer at a complex, midsize technology company and overseeing all legal operations, developing ways to stay organized not only helps internal and external stakeholders—but also yourself. That’s where having a background in technology and business processes can come in handy, says Rusty Hensley, general counsel for Vispero, a leader in assistive […]

Rusty Pickering – Ingo Money

The insurance company has settled your claim, or your business loan has been approved; great news to be sure. Then you hear “the check is in the mail,” and you wonder how long it will take for your good fortune to come to fruition. Ingo Money Inc. is looking to make that phrase a relic […]

Ruthie Wahl – Ninepoint Partners

Ruthie Wahl has never been one to follow the herd. Which seemed to be the way of things for so many Canadian asset management firms early last year. That’s when Canadian financial regulators cleared the way for retail investors to delve into liquid alternative funds that encompass asset classes ranging from hedge to real estate, […]

Ryan Brooks – Construction Partners Inc.

Passing through a road construction site can sometimes be painstaking, noisy and frustrating—and in the Southeast, where Construction Partners Inc. operates in five states, it can go on year-round. Ryan Brooks knows CPI may not be the favorite company of anyone stuck in traffic—especially now that work is sure to increase with the recent passage […]

Ryan Gehrke – Tankstar USA Inc.

It doesn’t take long to learn that Ryan Gehrke’s quite amiable. It also doesn’t take long to learn that, if you’re spoiling for a fight, he’ll give you one. “I’m a litigator at heart, I enjoy the cases,” Gehrke says. “I like being able to read people and situations.” As vice president and general counsel […]

Ryan Hurley – Copperstate Farms

Turns out, when it comes to spearheading a long-overdue societal change, persistency and passion are necessary—if by no means sufficient. Ryan Hurley has been fighting the good fight for well over a decade, trying to relax Arizona’s still-stringent marijuana laws so that recreational possession and use—with regulation and taxation—can be as legal there as in […]

Ryan J. Kretschmer – Walton Global Holdings

Georgia’s population is growing over 14 percent annually while its housing supply lags, so there’s ample opportunity for a company to thrive while making up the difference. First things first, that means acquiring the land on which to build, which Walton Global Holdings does. Then, it sells that real estate to homebuilders with which it […]

Ryan Lieberman – Cives Corporation

While Cives creates structures that last for decades, it creates jobs that do as well. So says General Counsel Ryan Lieberman, who’s been with the company for 21 years. Despite this longevity, he says he’s nowhere close to senior in terms of tenure. Many employees stay for most of their careers, he says, because the […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
