Manuel Sanchez – Arbomex/Grupo Arros

“Mexico Mi Amor.” This phrase was emblazoned on T-shirts sold by enterprising teenage friends Manuel Sanchez and Fernando Arriaga amidst Mexican civil unrest in the mid-1980s. The two launched their small business to promote the country’s unique beauty, designing all logos and images, marketing their product and “chasing invoices,” Sanchez explains. “It was an amazing […]

Manuel Suárez Ortiz – OYO Hotels, Mexico

Think of the industries most battered by COVID-19 and hospitality comes to mind. Worldwide, hotels have been closing or suspending operations. Some of the luckier ones have been sustaining themselves on borrowed time with significantly reduced occupancy. Among those most vulnerable have been the smaller, independent hotels that cater to the budget-conscious tourist or businessperson, […]

Marc Battle – DC Water

Water is life and make no mistake: Neither the COVID-19 pandemic nor massive protests for racial and social justice will interrupt its flow to Washington, D.C. People from all walks of life will have what they need to drink and bathe, says DC Water’s Marc Battle, the chief legal officer and executive vice president, government […]

Marc Jenkins – Asurion

“Transform the way the company works” was the directive given to Marc Jenkins when he arrived at work in January of 2018. Not that Nashville-based Asurion wasn’t working well; the privately held technology solutions provider being a successful $8 billion operation. But there’s always room for improvement in the areas of financial management, process improvement […]

Marc Marling – CMA CGM North America

There’s an old line that goes if you want something done, give it to a busy person. A busy person who might even consider sleep an essential waste of time, more than adequately getting by on a couple of hours a night. That, in a nutshell, describes Marc Marling who always seems to have projects […]

Marc Nichols – Saab Defense and Security

On his first day as a market analyst for Chemical Bank, during an intensive management training program, Marc Nichols received the most important advice of his then-young career: Make every decision as if it’ll be on the front page of the New York Times, and the person you respect the most is reading it. Twenty-five […]

Marc Spezzano – Citi

Upon being recruited by Citi last summer, one of the first challenges Marc Spezzano faced was confidential concern about a senior employee’s activities. This matter had gone unnoticed by senior management and as the new senior vice president of risk and compliance, it was Spezzano’s job to isolate the risk and prevent it from festering. […]

Marcela Inzunza – Boehringer Ingelheim

Being head of legal and compliance for Chile, Ecuador and Peru at Boehringer Ingelheim is demanding under normal circumstances, requiring Marcela Inzunza to meet rules and regulations while guiding the pharma company’s business development in three very different South American countries. It’s made all the more challenging by the COVID-19 pandemic and the pivot to […]

Marchelle E. Moore – Encova Insurance

Marchelle E. Moore remembers the day in 2005 when she met Bill Lhota at the Central Ohio Transit Authority. As she recalls, employees were in awe of him given his career as a CEO in public transportation and his work with American Electric Power for more than three decades. But for Moore, as COTA’s senior […]

Marco Aurelio Cordeiro – CNN Brasil

Freedom of speech is a right given to Americans by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It’s what allows them to stand on a street corner and say whatever comes to mind. Freedom of speech is also what gives U.S. journalists the ability to write news or run TV segments critical of government officials […]

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.
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.
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.
