Features

Paul Uhrig – Bassett Healthcare Network

Compared to working at a startup, being part of a new leadership team at a 100-year-old institution may seem breezy. But there’s a lot to consider—the history and reputation, the staff (some of whom have been there for decades) and the long-standing practices and procedures. But there’s also a benefit to new ways of thinking, […]

Pedro Frade – HSBC

Diversity has many meanings, and the general counsel for HSBC Brazil Investment Bank and HSBC Group Argentina thinks every single one is important. When Pedro Frade discusses workplace diversity, he’s not just talking euphemistically about employees who are of mixed ethnicity or a certain gender. Likewise, he’s not just using the term in that other, […]

Pedro J. Lopez-Baldrich – SharkNinja

Consumers—those of us needing to keep a clean house and functional, simplified kitchen—may associate the SharkNinja brand with everyday chores made easier, everything from robotics and cordless vacuums to preparing food with devices like blenders and multi-cooker appliances. Pedro J. Lopez-Baldrich, the company’s chief legal officer and executive vice president, doesn’t merely see the utility […]

Pedro Pablo Barragan – Jose Cuervo

Timing being critical in all matters stock-related, it didn’t seem ideal for Jose Cuervo when the world’s best-selling tequila distiller was again preparing its initial public offering in early 2017. The world’s political situation could be politely described as uncertain, especially as far as U.S.-Mexican relations were concerned, and if there’s one factor that renders […]

Peggy Barber – IACCM

They’ve existed since at least 2,300 BCE, with records from ancient Mesopotamia highlighting everything from marriage and mortgages to adoptions and bankruptcy. Without them, there would be no civilization, let alone markets or governments. And yet, these documents have become so fundamental to the human experience (and the daily lives of lawyers) that their importance […]

Pete Weinberg

Tonight, he’ll likely be playing his clarinet or sax somewhere. Maybe with an orchestra or chamber music group, maybe with a big band, or maybe with his good friend Joe Smiell, who has an authentic Bavarian band. It’s this same versatility Weinberg brings to the office—and the synergies created in both musical and office settings […]

Peter Betaneli – ETS

Most people have memories of taking a standardized test. While hours used to be spent filling in bubbles with No. 2 pencils, tests are now taken on computers. Regardless of how they’re administered, though, the tests are known for being a challenging yet necessary step forward in one’s education or career. ETS, which has been […]

Peter Castelli – POET

“A leader is only as good as his team.” It’s a phrase you hear a lot in sports and entertainment, when a star player credits his teammates after winning a championship, or an Oscar winner heaps praise on her colleagues during an acceptance speech. But for Peter Castelli, senior vice president, general counsel and secretary […]

Peter Mastrostefano – PUMA Group

When his parents bought him his first pair of white and blue PUMA suede sneakers with the trademark leaping cat logo on the tongue and heel of the shoes, Peter Mastrostefano was just eight years old. He never imagined that he’d one day become the senior vice president and general counsel for the North American […]

Peter Steckelman – Tennis Channel

The first time Peter Steckelman walked into a crowded broadcast booth only to find tennis greats Martina Navratilova and Jim Courier, he broke out in an instant sweat and was at a loss for words. “I could only think ‘Oh my God, don’t screw this up … and don’t stutter and don’t look stupid!’” says Steckelman, a self-proclaimed tennis junkie who […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
