Mike Zitelli – Edrington Americas

He heard it from a professor of sports law while an undergrad at the State University of New York, College at Cortland. Just some simple advice that didn’t need to be embellished with any pretentious Latin. “When the door to opportunity opens, you must walk through it,” young Mike Zitelli was advised not that many […]

Mira Wolff – Venbrook Insurance Services

When her company acquired the New Jersey-based Brooks Insurance Agency in 2016, Mira Wolff knew just what to do on the opposite coast in her complementary roles as general counsel and chief human resources officer at Venbrook Insurance Services. On the legal side, she would identify potential issues and nip them in the bud. Also, […]

Mitch Bompey – Addepar

In the world of investment, tracking the performance of a portfolio can be one of the biggest challenges to managing it. Markets fluctuate, interest rates change, earnings reports ebb and flow and information abounds. Aggregation tools are essential for independent wealth advisers, but the data filling those graphs and pie charts, such as share prices […]

Mohsen Parsa

Mohsen Parsa easily remembers his first moments as an Iranian immigrant coming to America. Arriving on Halloween, the first thing he remembers when stepping off the plane was a person dressed up as The Joker. While dressing up as a spooky character is celebrated in the U.S. for the holiday, such an image had a […]

Molly McCoy – Astellas Pharma US

The lessons have taken her far. She’s been senior leader in the legal departments for industry giants including Sandoz and Mallinckrodt, and she’s crisscrossed the country as her career grew. McCoy now works outside Chicago, guiding Astellas Pharma’s U.S. commercial legal team. But in spring 2020, her typical day’s work was anything but as the […]

Mona Stone – Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona & Goodwill Industries of Monocacy Valley

Asked how she became the capable and determined attorney she is today, Mona Stone’s response is quick and unequivocal. “I’m a product of great mentorship,” she says. Without those early mentors, Stone says she likely wouldn’t have become the first Indian American attorney to scale the ranks at Locke Lord, a nationally recognized firm with […]

Monica Akin – Viaero Wireless

Northeastern Colorado serves as home to the corporate offices of Viaero Wireless, a rural wireless and broadband internet service provider. Rural areas with sparse populations are often not sought out by the telecommunications giants, leaving the residents with limited service provider options, and often without the ability to connect to high-speed internet. It hampers everything […]

Moses Vargas – Connecticut Children’s Medical Center

It’s been a long journey for Moses Vargas, from doing missionary work in Guatemalan villages where paved roads were rare to living and working in one of New England’s largest cities. Along the way, he endured more than his fair share of challenges, before finding a new career calling—one that  gave him the chance to […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
