Jonathan Bush – Modivcare

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For broken bones, heart attacks or severe allergic reactions, most people know of only one mode of transportation to receive urgent medical attention: ambulances. However, non-emergency transportation for preventative care, life-sustaining dialysis, chemotherapy or post-operative follow-ups isn’t quite so simple, particularly for people who don’t have access to reliable transportation. That’s where Modivcare’s non-emergency medical […]

Mauri Aven – Kyocera AVX Components Corp.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

What capacitors do is pretty complex, especially given the components’ dimensions are often less than half a millimeter. Suffice it to say, they store electrical energy in an electric field in a microchip—which means they’re found in a lot of devices. “Anything with a chip in it will have a capacitor,” Mauri Aven says. As […]

Rebecca Fayed – R1 RCM

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Rebecca Fayed was an early expert on healthcare data privacy. As she was writing her master’s thesis on genetic privacy in 1998, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act—which generally prohibits healthcare organizations from using or disclosing patient information without the patient’s authorization—had recently become law, but its regulations had not yet been enacted. “I […]

Maureen Frangopoulos – Uber

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When Maureen Frangopoulos graduated law school and moved to Chicago, it was mid-2009 and America had plunged into a recession. Legal jobs had dried up, so she was working at the River North hotspot Hub 51, carrying sushi rolls and blue-cheese burgers across the dimly lit wood-paneled restaurant.  Still, Frangopoulos had a plan, albeit one […]

Kristina Dinerman-Cooper – Twitch

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Charging into battle against sword-wielding orcs or racing down the Autobahn in a nitrous-boosted luxury vehicle—these are just some of the possibilities for livestreaming available to content creators on Twitch, a service primarily used by video gamers wanting to promote their skills and get paid. While not all Twitch subscribers are content creators, they all […]

Robert Lev – IMC

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Robert Lev says he works in a lesser known—but exciting—area where financial trading and technology intersect. He’s the U.S. general counsel for IMC—a “market maker”—which means the company can buy or sell financial products at any time, facilitating the transfer of risk for market participants. “What we do is just a sliver of the fairly […]

Victoria Mangiapane – University of Phoenix

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Over the course of her career, Vicki Mangiapane has worked with farmworkers to secure good working conditions and access to reliable medical care. She’s served in Kenya for two years with the United Nations and spent a decade with the Arizona attorney general’s office. Now, as vice president and deputy general counsel at University of […]

Janet Nash – American Century Investments

Est. reading time: 5 mins

She’s winding down her career of a quarter-century-plus on the legal staff of American Century Investments. Only the rocking chair doesn’t await Janet Nash—this energetic and adventurous 54-year-old has years, if not decades, left to make an impact in other areas. While she can’t say what will follow her Feb. 28 retirement party, Nash will […]

Regan D. Fad – Teneo

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Perhaps her unconventional educational background has benefited Regan D. Fad in ways even she couldn’t have envisioned as an undergrad at The College of William & Mary during the 1990s. Not many students major in English and minor in chemistry, but Fad has never perceived these areas as exclusive. “Chemistry is problem-solving, just like law,” […]

Jolene Wall – REI

Est. reading time: 5 mins

While flame retardant tents may protect campers from the risk of fire, they can expose them to invisible, yet dangerous, toxins. The chemicals in flame retardants have been known to cause health problems, such as cancer and neurological disorders, while also being bad for the environment. Realizing these dangers, researchers at REI and other tent […]


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.
