Sue-Lynn Noel – Purolator

By the age of 12, Sue-Lynn Noel knew she wanted to pursue a career in law. Turning that vision into reality was a different story. Not only were there no lawyers in her family; none of them had ever gone to college. It was during a work experience class in high school—an internship at a […]

Sumiko Kanazawa – Mizuho Trust & Banking Co.

She might have met with the IT department to talk about system consolidation first thing in the morning. After lunch, perhaps it was reviewing proposals and contracts with the business department. Later that evening a call with the bank’s headquarters in Tokyo, where the next day’s business had already begun. In the months it took […]

Sunjay Mathews – DAZN

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Don’t shy from changing on the fly. So sums up the modus operandi of Sunjay Mathews, the head of legal for the North American division of DAZN, a burgeoning sports-streaming network that threatens to disrupt the viewing status quo around the world. “Don’t be afraid to cut the cord,” he […]

Surveying and Mapping LLC

Modern construction relies more and more upon geospatial surveying, and that’s a concept best grasped by those with a technical background. People such as, say, Cookie Fay Munson, who since 2012 has been the savvy general counsel of the Austin, Texas-based and nationally recognized firm, Surveying And Mapping LLC (SAM) that assists a variety of […]

Susan Bridgman – Emerald Advisors, representing Teradata and Field Aerospace Inc.

It was an eleventh hour emergency, Susan Bridgman says, when she received a news flash from the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security this spring: Changes were being made to regulatory codes that would impact trade practices between her San Diego software client and its customers in China and Russia—not exactly what one wants to […]

Susan Fornaro – Klöckner Pentaplast

Klöckner Pentaplast’s products are found in refrigerators, medicine cabinets, wallets and even underfoot on a vinyl floor. Since 1965, and now in 31 plants in 18 countries, the company has supplied plastic packaging and product films, even as consumers may take that packaging for granted while opening a container holding what’s for dinner. What’s not […]

Susan Tanaka – Amorepacific US Inc.

Beauty may be only skin deep, as the saying goes, but preserving and protecting it is at the core of Susan Tanaka’s work. The head of legal for Amorepacific’s U.S. and Canadian operations, Tanaka says the South Korean maker of skin care products takes great care in its development and marketing approaches. Tanaka, who considered […]

Susie Fiore – Relevent Sports Group

Bend it like Beckham? Susie Fiore seems to be following the example of that former British “futboller” David Beckham who had a way of curling the ball past a wall of defenders. Got to be a game-changer, she says, whether it’s on the field or in the office. A serious soccer player during her youth […]

Suzanne Law Marisa – OVHcloud

“I was up working until 2 in the morning last night,” Suzanne Law Marisa confides, with surprising verve, during a recent interview with Vanguard magazine. “So, I apologize in advance if I sound a little off.” Last night, it should be noted, referred to Sunday, after a weekend packed with kids sporting events that included […]

Suzanne Spradley – NFP

Taking shortcuts and fudging the numbers will only get you so far. For a business to have stable and secure growth, it needs to be ethical from the start, Suzanne Spradley says. As chief compliance officer at NFP, she knows ethical leadership is good for business. And if someone has a concern about unethical behavior, […]

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.
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.
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.
