Christy O’Connor – Ibex

A winning team on the verge of stepping into the big leagues. That’s what Christy O’Connor was promised when her reputation in the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry garnered an offer to take over the legal department at Ibex. At the time, the Washington D.C.-based company was focused on going public, and O’Connor had aided […]

Malik Majeed — PRWT Services Inc. and U.S. Facilities Inc.

One of the things Malik Majeed loves hearing from employees, both past and present, is that PRWT Services Inc. “feels like family.” For Majeed, the president, CEO and general counsel for two Philadelphia-based companies—PRWT Services Inc. (PRWT) and its wholly owned subsidiary, U.S. Facilities Inc. (USF)—it’s a sentiment that’s both heartwarming and validating. One of […]

Hannah Lim-Johnson – Kelly Services

Once upon a time, the “Kelly Girl” was a ubiquitous image—a woman filling in for a day or a week in a company typing pool or another clerical job. The better part of a century later, Kelly Services has evolved to be a go-to resource for labor in a wide array of industries with assignments […]

Paul Marcela – Governance Partners Group LLC

To some, the work of a corporate secretary is drudgery, but there’s a certain romance to it for the right person. “The role is broader than taking minutes, with a variety of board activities, governance processes and procedures, authorization of transactions and delegations of authority—there are plenty of balls to keep in the air,” Paul […]

That’s according to Kevin Rakowski, who has been deeply involved in both the sport and the industries for some time. As he has learned, they […]

Jason Romrell – LeadsMarket.com

It’s a disturbing fact of economic life that approximately 40 percent of adults can’t cover a $400 emergency without selling property or taking out a loan, 30 percent have poor or bad credit, and millions more are credit invisible, making it difficult to secure financing. Not impossible, that is. Subprime lenders abound, especially online, willing […]

Philipp Kaeferle – NEST

It’s a billion-dollar-plus industry, facilities maintenance and management, and NEST has been garnering an incrementally bigger piece of the turf since the company’s 1994 founding in Gloucester City, New Jersey, just across the Walt Whitman Bridge from Philadelphia. “No marquee projects like a big bridge,” Philipp Kaeferle, NEST’s congenial general counsel, tells Vanguard in late […]

H. Daniel Alvarez – Bureau Veritas

For H. Daniel Alvarez, there’s something special about being on a tennis court. Singles or doubles, on hardcourt or clay, the effect is always the same: how it loosens the lungs and works the blood; and the clarity that comes after an hour or two of non-stop movement. But for all the game’s many benefits, […]
