Greg Hoffman – Farm Credit Mid-America

Don’t confuse Farm Credit Mid-America with a bank, says Greg Hoffman. Farming, after all, is cyclical, and banks enter and leave the agricultural financing market when the economics make sense to them. But Farm Credit Mid-America is owned by farmers and has a mission to serve agriculture and rural communities through thick and thin. That, […]

Greg Kerr – Wolseley Canada

It never hurts to retain an outsider’s perspective, even when one is an in-house lawyer. Maybe especially so. So says Greg Kerr who’s held in-house positions with Wolseley Canada since 2013, his most recent promotion being to general counsel and vice president of legal, risk and compliance in July 2019. That’s put him in charge […]

Greg McLaughlin – IBM

It promised to be an exciting promotion in March 2019, one that would have veteran IBM lawyer Greg McLaughlin working with an expanding clientele in a public sector that can lag behind the tech curve. Now general counsel of IBM’s state, local and public education market, and based in Armonk, New York, McLaughlin works to […]

Greg Moss – Kadmon Holdings Inc.

Whether used in treating multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma or leukemia, more than 50,000 stem cell transplants are performed worldwide each year, according to the World Health Organization. Stem cell transplants can help extend life spans for five years or more. But on some occasions, a transplant can actually attack a recipient’s body. It’s […]

Greg Pate – PRA Health Sciences

We’ve all known someone suffering from a rare condition or disease—if not a friend or family member, then someone a mere degree away. For most, such awareness brings with it a sense of helplessness; the sinking feeling there’s nothing you can personally do to improve their lives. Greg Pate can sleep a little easier. As the […]

Gregory Orleski – Pharmascience

Within the pharmaceutical industry, one might say that Gregory Orleski has seen it all in a career spanning more than 20 years. But his fascination for business keeps him coming back for more. That was certainly the case with Montreal-based Pharmascience Inc. Initially joining as a business development advisor, a role he held from 2011-2015, […]

Gregory Smith – Alliance Industries

Despite the uncertainty in business across almost all industries due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gregory Smith saw an opportunity. As vice president and general counsel of Alliance Industries in Ohio, Smith was hired to lead the company’s global expansion. Though he spent more than a decade working with fast growing companies in China, Hong Kong, […]

GSE Systems

When pilots are learning to fly, they often use a flight simulator. It is, after all, much safer and less costly to crash a computer than an airplane. In a similar vein, GSE Systems constructs highly accurate computer simulators for nuclear and fossil fuel power plants, the petroleum industry and other industrial processors. These simulators […]

Gustavo Cruz – Avon (Andean Cluster)

Even at 16 years old, while most of his peers were simply trying to survive the trials of teenage-hood, Gustavo Cruz was setting his sights on grander things. Like starting a democratic turnaround in his native Colombia. Well, sort of. During his final year at Gimnasio de los Cerros in Bogotá, the city’s school board—which […]

Guy Billauer – American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee

Guy Billauer isn’t the only attorney who gets calls at all hours of the day and night. It’s just that he gets them from more time zones, and that’s only part of his job as general counsel and chief compliance officer for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, which is better known by its JDC […]

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.
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.
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.
