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 […]

Stephanie Westermeier – Trinity Health

In these days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stephanie Westermeier doesn’t have to look far to see the devastating impact of coronavirus—both at work and at home. As the general counsel at the Boise, Idaho-based Saint Alphonsus Health System—a subsidiary of Michigan-based Trinity Health, the sixth largest healthcare system in the country and third largest non-profit—Westermeier […]

Nancy Ardell – Northwest Community Healthcare

As the calendar turned from 2019 to 2020, Nancy Ardell’s to-do list was growing quickly. The new executive vice president and chief legal officer at Northwest Community Healthcare, Ardell was guiding the system through a merger that would assure its role as a community care provider, near Chicago, would continue and even flourish. Piecing together […]

Hank Greenberg – Oscar Health

Hank Greenberg remembers his early days as the senior corporate counsel at Oscar Health in 2016, when he helped to develop a telemedicine platform for the company. He never realized how relevant that work would become during a pandemic four years later. Now, as general counsel for the New York City-based, technology-driven health insurance company, […]

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 […]

Vanessa Vilar – Unilever

Working for a company that’s been doing business in her country for almost 90 years, one might expect Vanessa Vilar, Unilever’s general counsel for Brazil, to help conduct business as usual. However, that’s hardly her style or intent as she directs contract management, protects brand names and intellectual property, and oversees M&A and litigation for […]

Caren Weakley – Radiology Partners

The importance of leadership development is a topic rarely covered in the standard law school curriculum. But for Caren Weakley, vice president and managing general counsel, risk, for Radiology Partners, the largest physician-owned radiology practice in the U.S., this development is intrinsic. Since joining the company in 2019, Weakley has overseen everything from litigation and […]

Christina Wahlig – Marathon Health

Christina Wahlig loves the feeling she gets after a run; the adrenaline flowing, the endorphins giving her that unmistakable “runner’s high.” She relishes her daily run, which not only offers inspiring views of Vermont’s scenic landscape, but also a valuable opportunity to recharge. As the general counsel for Marathon Health, Wahlig needs all the energy […]

Loretta Cecil – Change Healthcare Inc.

As she helps Change Healthcare inspire a better healthcare system, General Counsel Loretta Cecil is also guiding its new approach to addressing legal and compliance issues. Conventional models for public companies separate the legal and compliance teams. However, when Change Healthcare was created in 2017, Cecil insisted on following her vision of a single organization […]

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.
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.
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.
