John Daly – Southern Illinois Healthcare

When new Vice President and Chief Information Officer David Hakanson started at Southern Illinois Healthcare recently, General Counsel John Daly breathed a sigh of relief. It was great news. Having a new CIO who understood the benefits of—and was familiar with—the latest contract tracking database system was a boost to the legal department at the […]

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 […]

Greg Bassi – Lumere

It was a process building up for weeks—and like the Tom Petty tune, the waiting was the hardest part. But for Chicago-based Lumere—a provider of evidence-based data and analytics solutions—being acquired in January by Colorado-based Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX)—a healthcare business and data automation company—was worth it. As Lumere’s General Counsel Greg Bassi tells it, […]

Rebecca Zimmer – GE Healthcare

It can be a stressful ordeal for any woman, anticipating the annual mammogram that the American Cancer Society advises for those 40 and older. Which is something that more than half of American women haven’t been undergoing. That’s according to a 2014 survey conducted by the nonprofit Society for Women’s Health Research. Some experts say […]

Karen S. Kim – CenCal Health

Even under the best of conditions, it seemed a challenging responsibility: taking over as general counsel for a large healthcare public entity. Turns out, the conditions would be anything but. While there was some insight in late 2019 about a pending pandemic, nobody could really anticipate the extent of what would be COVID-19. Certainly not […]

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 […]

Jennifer Crawford – Medici

When Jennifer Crawford became the general counsel at Medici in early 2019, she knew there’d be a lot of moving pieces—both inside the company and within the wider healthcare industry. Since then, those pieces have only multiplied. A pandemic can have that effect on a telehealth startup, after all. But with the challenge of COVID-19 […]

Todd Johnson – Previvo

If nothing else, Todd Johnson lives for checklists and challenges. He checked off all the boxes when given a list of what he needed to do to get into West Point. As a cadet, he checked off all the items needed to get into flight school. In civilian life, he’s checked off all the things […]

Alizah Diamond – Regional Cancer Care Associates

As Regional Cancer Care Associates, one of the nation’s largest cancer care networks, began celebrating its fifth year of success in 2016, an ambitious agenda was being readied. At the time, RCCA’s only in-house attorney, Terrill Jordan, was promoted to president and CEO and a search commenced for his legal successor. The ideal candidate would […]

Steven Tam – Vancouver Coastal Health Authority

A patient with a sepsis infection lies in a hospital bed in British Columbia. Needing more information to determine the best course of action, the doctor reaches out to peers in the U.S., who offer to share their observations—and offer some potential treatment options. But they can’t have a look at the patient’s medical records […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
