Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s been a long journey for Moses Vargas, from doing missionary work in Guatemalan villages where paved roads were rare to living and working in one of New England’s largest cities. Along the way, he endured more than his fair share of challenges, before finding a new career calling—one that  gave him the chance to […]

Monica Akin – Viaero Wireless

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Northeastern Colorado serves as home to the corporate offices of Viaero Wireless, a rural wireless and broadband internet service provider. Rural areas with sparse populations are often not sought out by the telecommunications giants, leaving the residents with limited service provider options, and often without the ability to connect to high-speed internet. It hampers everything […]

Matt Bell – FTI Consulting

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Matt Bell’s interests have always been oriented toward building businesses. As a student of modest means at Oklahoma Christian University, he ran a gutter cleaning operation and a snow cone stand on the side. Never one to shy away from a challenge, as a freshman he cajoled a fifth-year senior to go out with him […]

Matthew P. Zinn – 8×8 Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In retrospect, it seems to have worked out just fine that Matthew P. Zinn missed out on a summer associate position at a firm in Washington, D.C. after his first year at George Washington University Law School. A recession had lessened the demand for budding lawyers. But the time Zinn would spend painting houses in […]

Marty Collins – QuinStreet

Est. reading time: 5 mins

He says it like someone who’s spoken these words over and over again: “Who wants unwanted phone calls? No one. But sometimes they’ll happen, even with the best, most compliant network, like QuinStreet’s,” says Marty Collins. Collins, QuinStreet’s senior vice president for legal, compliance and corporate development, says he’s not a fan of unwanted sales […]

Mauricio Joffily Pinheiro – Shire

Est. reading time: 5 mins

On paper, his employer remains the same, but for all practical purposes Mauricio Joffily Pinheiro no longer works for the same company he joined in early 2015 as the only in-house lawyer for Latin America. That’s because the Irish-headquartered Shire has grown exponentially, becoming one of the most acquisitive companies on the global biopharm and biotech […]

Match Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Few people may realize it, but the dating websites Match.com, OkCupid, Tinder and PlentyOfFish are all owned by the same parent company, Match Group. In all, Match Group owns some 45 online dating brands, each catering to a slightly different market. “They all focus on something unique, even though they’re in the same space,” says […]

Martin Felli – JDA Software Group Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Rumors of the demise of brick-and-mortar shopping centers may be exaggerated, but perhaps not greatly. Many trusted old names are going to the ultimate clearance sale of no return. Those left standing tend to be those staying ahead of a hi-tech commerce curve which they may need expertise in navigating. Such expertise can be found […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
