Evan Hearnsberger – Xponential Fitness

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When you’re a boutique fitness company whose studios are filled with rowing machines, stationary indoor bikes and treadmills, a global pandemic and mandatory shutdown orders might seem like a final burnout round. Most members can’t afford such equipment—often computerized with individual health metrics—and many joined the studio because they crave interaction with other fitness aficionados and enthusiastic trainers. But even as gyms […]

Emilia Mesquita – Banco Itau Paraguay

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Time was when Emilia Mesquita envisioned a diplomatic career and saw a law degree as the portal. The more experience she gained, however, the less she perceived diplomacy as the most effective way of fashioning societal, much less global, change. “I realized I could accomplish more in law than in diplomacy,” she tells Vanguard in […]

Edward Sturchio doesn’t spend his time in a lab like the researchers, technicians and scientists responsible for the life-saving innovations developed by the biotechnology companies he works for. But he has made a science of advising and growing those companies. As he chatted with Vanguard in June 2020, Sturchio was enjoying his second day as […]

Eric Ian Schwartz – Integra LifeSciences

Est. reading time: 7 mins

Medical device manufacturers beset by an array of unanticipated issues in the face of an unprecedented pandemic might benefit from virtual get-togethers. Such was the point raised earlier this year by the legal team at Integra LifeSciences, a leading global manufacturer of medical technologies and solutions. Companies could find middle ground between competition and cooperation, […]

Emma Channing — Satis Group LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Emma Channing says about 70 percent of Americans have less than $5,000 in their 401(k) accounts—and that’s not OK. In fact, the CEO and general counsel of Satis Group says the numbers amount to a ticking time bomb. The casualties? They’re more likely to be women—and those earning less income. That situation is among the […]

They’ve managed the legal department of Club Med North America for a combined 40 years. Together, they’ve helped pave the way for some of the company’s most high-stakes initiatives: a massive renovation of Club Med Cancun Yucatan in Mexico in 2006; a 2010 upgrade of Sandpiper Bay in Florida; and several expansion projects in the […]

Evan A. Michael – NFP

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For most general counsels, shepherding four acquisitions over the course of a year would be a milestone. Evan A. Michael routinely oversees 10 times that number. As general counsel and executive vice president for NFP—one of the nation’s largest insurance brokers and consultants—Michael has made mergers and acquisitions the centerpiece of his 13-year-plus tenure at […]

Ellis Rosenzweig – CyberGRX

Est. reading time: 4 mins

That data breaches are invasive, expensive and frightening is not news. What’s less known is that some of the worst breaches—including the 2013 theft of data from the Target retail chain—are not a result of direct hacks. Instead, hackers can work their way into a corporate network or database through their vendors or third parties. […]

Ethan Weitzman – HIDTA

In the Washington, D.C., area, Ethan Weitzman, fights the war on drugs in his own backyard, but he’s not a cop or a first responder. A Baltimore native, he’s chief regulatory compliance officer and general counsel for the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, or HIDTA, which coordinates federal, state and local drug interdiction efforts […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
