Adam Bean – Community Reach Center

Running a 600-employee nonprofit healthcare across 17 locations is a daunting task. It’s especially tough if the responsibility for tracking documentation falls to one person without the aid of a fully-staffed legal department. Having the leadership skills required is the main reason Chief Legal Officer Adam Bean says he was brought into Community Reach Center […]

James Napoli – Medliminal

It’s been a fast and furious few months for James Napoli, but with any luck he’ll have a chance to sit down at a Washington Redskins game with his sons and check out the fruits of his labors sometime soon. This general counsel-turned-CEO came to work for Virginia-based Medliminal 3 years ago as a consultant […]

Shannon Dwyer – Providence St. Joseph Health

In the midst of national uncertainty about access to healthcare, and growing concern regarding cuts to government programs, Providence St. Joseph Health—one of the country’s largest not-for-profit health care organizations—is taking action to transform the delivery of its services. During this time, Shannon Dwyer steps into a new role as special adviser to the organization’s […]

Thomas Huyck – Appalachian Regional Healthcare System

In sheer verdant beauty, few places in America can hold a flame to western North Carolina. Though its days as a frontier outpost are now centuries gone, there endures—in the sparsely settled bluffs and valleys strung along its outer reaches—a pioneering sense of community. The flip side you likely know: the dwindling economic opportunity and […]

Alejandra Castro – Bayer Corporation

When discussing what inspired them to choose their profession or specialty, most lawyers will cite a famous TV or film attorney, or perhaps a parent or relative who practiced law. For Alejandra Castro, it was a poet, and that poet was her. “When I was writing poetry, I became interested in the rights of creation, […]

Driving change in workers’ compensation

“Get in the trunk,” Steve Sibner told his client after bailing him out of jail in the early morning hours of an especially memorable day back in 1986. It was one of the first pieces of legal advice that the young attorney gave to anyone, as he had only recently graduated from American University’s Washington […]

Jason Groves – Medifast

Jason Groves has been an attorney for more than 20 years, but it wasn’t until 2011 that he was personally thanked by clients for changing their lives. That was the year that Groves joined Medifast, a Maryland-based nutrition and weight loss company that had just nabbed the top spot on Forbes magazine’s list of America’s […]

Mauricio Joffily Pinheiro – Shire

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 […]

Career moves down to a science

Compared to what his father did decades ago, Bradford J. Shafer’s career change in the prime of his working life may not seem quite so remarkable. But it still represented a leap of faith that’s vindicated itself in the form of Shafer helming the legal department of a growing biopharmaceutical company in South San Francisco. […]

Best behavior is treating mental illness

It may be an exaggeration, but not much of one, to say that the nation’s largest behavioral health pharmacy and telepsychiatry provider is growing by the day. Maybe every other day. Or two of three. The day before its energetic general counsel, executive vice president and secretary, Alexander “Aly” M. Kayne, spoke with Vanguard in […]
