Sarah Mack – Everett Public Schools

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Sarah Mack comes from a family of educators who believe in the purpose and potential of public schools. So, it’s only natural that she would end up working for a public school district—albeit in a different capacity. As general counsel for Everett Public Schools in Washington’s Snohomish County, Mack supports the teachers, administrators and staffers […]

Becky Broadbent – Utah Tech University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

While email makes sharing information more efficient, it doesn’t always keep it well organized. Becky Broadbent noticed this when she joined Utah Tech University as general counsel in January 2020. The university had been managing contracts via email, and she wanted to implement a contract management system. “I wanted something that would allow us to […]

F. Willis (Bill) Caruso Jr. – DeVry University

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There are times when Bill Caruso might sigh at the regulations a private, for-profit college must adhere to. Case in point: No more than 90 percent of its revenue can come from federal financial aid. The underlying theory is that a private, for-profit school should be of sufficient quality to garner more than 10 percent […]

Valencia Gallon-Stubbs – Bethune-Cookman University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Hurricane Ian hit Florida in September, Bethune-Cookman University was the first college in the state to evacuate students. Located in Daytona Beach, along Florida’s eastern coast, the campus was damaged by flooding and severe winds. Trees fell across much of campus and awnings were ripped from buildings. Students left on Sept. 26, two days […]

Karen Petrulakis – Wellesley College

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When leaders at Wellesley College started creating the school’s first strategic plan in 2019, they knew inclusion and a global mindset would be part of it. However, the COVID-19 pandemic made the need more apparent and important. “The goal of inclusive excellence runs through all of our strategic plan,” says Karen Petrulakis, Wellesley’s general counsel. […]

Hal Denton – AFS Intercultural Programs

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The first day at a new job is always chaotic, with onboarding, paperwork, desk organization—or in Hal Denton’s case, the U.S. invasion of Panama. On December 20, 1989, the day Denton became general counsel for AFS Intercultural Programs, U.S. troops landed in Panama. The international youth exchange organization had 40 students en route to a […]

Erika Robinson – Trinity University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Most strategy retreats end with specific goals and actions planned. But a retreat for leaders at Trinity University in June finished with an opposite approach. Rather than ending with specific steps to make Trinity a top liberal arts university, it culminated with ideas that were adaptable. The executive leadership team wanted to leave room for […]

Suzanne Telsey – McGraw Hill LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Students looking to save a little money on textbooks often search online for deals or used copies. What they might not realize, though, is that some of the books they’re buying are counterfeit. “People buy them because they appear legitimate and are cheaper,” Suzanne Telsey says. “But these unauthorized books are being sold and distributed […]

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.
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.
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.
