Merritt McGowan – Lyniate

They had moved to New York City from Mississippi in the ‘80s when her father began working on Wall Street. Just as she was becoming accustomed to life in the Big Apple, her dad was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an incurable disease where someone’s immune system damages the central nervous system. He was unable to […]

Mike Jones – Cape Cod Healthcare

By July 4, summer visitors will be streaming over the Bourne and Sagamore bridges to Cape Cod. Finding a patch of open sand to spread a blanket at Craigville Beach might be difficult, and clam shacks will bustle with diners. But the return of tourists will likely not dim the memories of working through the […]

Matt Nolan – Safeguard Medical

Matt Nolan’s life likely was spared by first responders using equipment available through a new company he now works for. It’s called Safeguard Medical, and he can vouch for its necessity. For it was in June 2019 when Nolan, then a young lawyer, was struck by a car while jogging near his home in Chicago. […]

Marisol González Ortega – L’Oréal

It was an opportunity to help people from Mexico to Argentina as COVID-19 struck in Latin and South America, Marisol González Ortega recalls. As general counsel for L’Oréal’s Latin American operations, she’d already worked to keep production plants open during the pandemic. Now, plants that made shampoo and other personal care products could convert, in […]

Mike Watters – Essentia Health

As a student at the University of Michigan and before beginning a professional baseball career, Mike Watters remembers learning to manage stress as a second baseman. That ability to keep a cool head when runners were circling the bases and be a team member served Watters in life—well beyond his accolades as a player who […]

Max Lafer – Home Health Care Services of New York

It was an interesting start for Home Health Care Services of New York. Husband and wife founders Jeff and Agnes Shemia conceived the idea for their Brooklyn-based business while talking on a park bench in 2004 and started building their healthcare dynasty from there. They’d leave all the legal details on how to make it […]

Megan Croce – Banfield Pet Hospital

Recently, Megan Croce took her rescue dog Sadie, an Australian shepherd and beagle mix, to a local Banfield Pet Hospital for routine dental work. Later that night, after the hospital had closed, Croce received a call from a veterinarian who wanted to discuss Sadie’s health. Little did the vet know that Croce was the general […]

Michelle Carter Pierce – Centria Healthcare

Like most companies, Centria Healthcare’s operations were turned upside down in more ways than one by the emergence of COVID-19—especially when it came to new pandemic-related rules and regulations, which seem to change by the day. Michelle Carter Pierce was right in the thick of it. As general counsel for Michigan-based Centria Healthcare, she’s been […]

Matt Cameron – Akumin Inc.

No one looks forward to getting an MRI. But Matt Cameron wants people to know that this stress-inducing procedure is not only easier than ever; it’s also becoming more and more convenient to schedule and undergo. That’s the premise behind Akumin Inc., where Cameron serves as the general counsel and senior vice president, leading the […]

M.A. Joaquim Ballès – Trudell Medical Limited

His long-time role as general counsel might have seemed consuming enough. But, as part of a Trudell Medical Limited executive team whose members are expected to handle multiple responsibilities, Joaquim Ballès’ position was expanded a couple of years ago to include a stronger hand in business development. It’s something this leader has relished at this […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
