Rebecca Zimmer – GE Healthcare

It can be a stressful ordeal for any woman, anticipating the annual mammogram that the American Cancer Society advises for those 40 and older. Which is something that more than half of American women haven’t been undergoing. That’s according to a 2014 survey conducted by the nonprofit Society for Women’s Health Research. Some experts say […]

Regan Schmidt – CNG Holdings, Inc.

Imagine you’re a father of three. As the breadwinner, you work hard to pay the bills and provide for your family, but a few weeks into the COVID-19 pandemic, you lose your job.

Regina McGregor – Cannistraro

More than a half a century later, his family-owned business has become one of the state’s largest providers of industrial mechanical construction solutions, from plumbing and construction to 3D […]

Rekha Hanu – Akorn Inc.

There may not be a dry eye in the house. At least there may not need to be since a major drugmaker has been denied an attempt to shield its patent for the pricy prescription eye drop Restasis. A very unusual tactic, says Rekha Hanu, the chief intellectual property counsel at Akorn Inc., one of […]

Renata Cunha Giuliani – Akamai Technologies

When Renata Cunha Giuliani joined Akamai Technologies, there was no welcoming bouquet on her desk or procession of new colleagues stopping by to wish her well. That happens these days when people onboard in a pandemic, although like other Akamai employees working remotely, she was given a budget for establishing her home office. Giuliani’s joining […]

Renata Loyola – Bquate

“Little Radio,” her mother called Renata Loyola when she was growing up in Brazil. For the girl liked to sing. Didn’t matter the genre, be it rock, blues, folk, classical, electronic, jazz or whatever. Rolling Stones, Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Florence and the Machine, Avicii—all those airwave staples enthralled her. She’d learn the lyrics by […]

Renee Robles – Nike Mexico

It’s a lesson she learned early and now imparts to those under her wing. For it wasn’t so long ago that Renee Robles, then a newcomer to the Nike Mexico legal staff, asked her boss a question. She got no answer, she says, but did receive something more important. “He was always there to listen […]

Rhonda Porter – Akron Public Schools

Whether it was as an educator herself at the American International School in Vienna, Austria, or as an orchestral trumpet player touring throughout Europe, she found herself always in a role as a musician and an educator.

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.
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.
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.
