Features Corporate Counsel

Stephen Berry – Builders Insurance Group

A tactical and practical approach has taken Stephen Berry far, even if it is not along a path he imagined as a younger man. Now a senior vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary for Builders Insurance Group, Berry once aspired to be a historian. Instead of academia, he has mastered the complex and perhaps […]

Steve Huang – Silgan Containers LLC

It’s taken some adjustment, Steve Huang says with a chuckle, having gone from 15 years in solar energy to food cans. But with his most recent employer also committed to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices, Huang can find similarities even if he has to think in different terms. “In solar energy, when you talk volume […]

Skip Hulett – NatureSweet

Behind every small, sweet, perfect cherry tomato on a plate is a human story. A person supporting a family played a role in that plant’s development—whether it was carefully planting a seed, watering a vine or handpicking the perfected fruit. At least that’s how Skip Hulett, the first vice president and general counsel of NatureSweet, […]

Steve Forsythe – RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corporation

No doubt, the mortgage industry has undergone dramatic changes since the onset of the Great Recession in 2008. And while there has been significant roll up, consolidation and closure of many companies, RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corporation has grown rapidly and, as Steve Forsythe puts it, “in the right way.” That is: The company is emphasizing […]

Scott Boylan – MorphoTrust USA

The nation still reeling from the Sept. 11 attacks of the year before, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security came into being in late 2002, and among the early advisers to Secretary Tom Ridge was a lawyer in his early 40s who had built up credentials as impressive as they were esoteric. Scott Boylan was […]

Sean Hughes — Tabcorp

In Australia, the first Tuesday of every November is the Melbourne Cup, the most prestigious thoroughbred horse race in the country and a nationwide tradition since 1861. In 2017, it was also the day that Vanguard spoke with attorney Sean Hughes of Tabcorp, a major sponsor of the Melbourne Cup carnival and one of the […]

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 […]

Sbarro

The owner of a casual, family-style Italian restaurant in North Canton, Ohio, Mark Inzetta knows the recipe for success in the risky endeavor of serving food to customers and hoping they’ll make a habit out of coming back often. His restaurant—Mama Guzzardi’s—is noted for its mouth-watering lasagna, but that alone won’t keep the place viable. […]

Sabine Oil & Gas Corporation

The oil and gas business is risky. Very risky. There’s geological and mechanical risk associated with locating and extracting hydrocarbons from thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface. And then there’s price risk. Global economies, OPEC decisions, geopolitical events—particularly those in already unstable areas like the Middle East—and even the weather, can all dramatically impact […]

Seeing clearly in vertical markets

Some insights can only come from weathering 17 years in the legal hot seat. That, says Suzanne Niemeyer, just about sums up her role as general counsel and managing director at Actua Corporation, a Radnor, Pennsylvania-based public company that owns and operates private businesses offering cloud-based software to customers in vertical markets, or markets that […]
