Luis-Xavier Hernandez – Unilever

When standing on the tee box before launching golf balls hundreds of yards down the fairway, Luis-Xavier Hernandez stops. He blocks everything out. He concentrates only on his body. Controlling one’s emotions, he explains, can be the difference between the average Saturday hacker and routinely scoring near par, and he sees parallels between his weekends […]

Luisa Suarez – Grupo Vitalmex

Luisa Suarez makes it clear at the beginning of the lively interview: “I’m a lawyer who happens to be a woman. Not the other way around.” And she’s appreciative to be recognized in that manner by her employer and peers. Of course, she’s earned the faith and goodwill of the executive team at Vitalmex, having […]

Luiz Klecz – InterCement

From unexpected sightseeing in Alexandria, Egypt, to spending several years in Argentina when he thought he was going to be there for just a couple of weeks, Luiz Klecz has been around the world with some interesting career turns. The general counsel for InterCement, he’s helped the Brazilian company grow globally for more than 18 […]

Luke E. Alverson – CSW Industrials

There they were, six companies spun off by Capital Southwest Corp., in the fall of 2015 and coming together under a new standalone called CSW Industrials (CSWI). Though all industrially focused, they had operated independently with little, if any, interaction among their leadership teams. Now they were to comprise the main pillars of a new, […]

Lynda Godkin – WEX Health

While working for Holyoke-Chicopee Home Care Services in Chicopee, Massachusetts, Lynda Godkin conducted entire conversations with one of her clients—an elderly woman who’d been removed from her home by the local department of public health—by kneeling on the doorstep and talking to her through the front door mail slot. After much gentle coaxing, the woman […]

Lynde Selden – Plaza Home Mortgage

“Did you see this?” That was the question posed to Plaza Home Mortgage General Counsel Lynde Selden by the CEO’s assistant in early March. Both were puzzled by the printout of an “Equitable Remittance Coupon”—supposedly valued at $250,000. The person who’d sent the CEO this “voucher” was using it to pay a $150,000 home loan. […]

Lynden Renwick – BrightKey

Indispensability is what Lynden Renwick craves. In a world where IT capabilities are constantly in flux and rules differ considerably from country to country, figuring out how to navigate the legal waters can be a constant struggle—particularly for companies on the cutting edge. But where others see a multijurisdictional miasma of compliance, Renwick sees something […]

Lynn Haaland – PepsiCo

Tired, hungry and soaking wet. Lynn Haaland felt it all, tromping in the mud for days along the Appalachian Trail, often in a driving rain. All she could think about was a hot meal, a shower and some dry clothes. For her it was just another challenging day on vacation. For thousands of homeless women […]

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.
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.
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.
