Angela Petrucci – NBH Bank

In the four and a half years since Angela Petrucci joined Denver-based NBH Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Bank Holdings Corp., the organization has surpassed a quarry’s worth of milestones. It established itself as a publicly-traded company. It converted to a Colorado state-chartered bank in 2016. It acquired two banks in 2017. It refined […]

Nicole Macarchuk – Angel Island Capital

Bigger isn’t always better. Need proof? Look no further than Nicole Macarchuk and the team at Angel Island Capital (AIC) in San Francisco. Named for one of the Bay Area’s most treasured landmarks, the alternative investment firm doesn’t boast quite the assets of its more seasoned rivals. But that’s not stopping the firm from forging […]

Scott Shepherd – ScaleFactor

The clichés would have ScaleFactor Chief Legal Officer Scott Shepherd landing on his feet, his boots on the ground as the Austin, Texas, company embarks on a new round of growth. And indeed, the clichés are true, as Shepherd becomes the company’s first in-house attorney, bringing a combination of military and legal experience with him […]

George S. Springsteen – IFC Asset Management Company

The Middle East and Africa being under a torrid sun, it would seemingly make sense to tap renewable power from that gift from above, but such projects can carry a prohibitive price and limited financing options. Those obstacles notwithstanding, Dubai-based Yellow Door Energy raised $65 million early last year to proceed with deployment of lease-to-own […]

Gordon Repp – LaSalle Investment Management

Gordon Repp loves the sigh of relief that he hears when industry regulators conduct a routine audit at LaSalle Investment Management. He fully expects the firm will get a clean bill of health, given the attention his team devotes to improving operations. After 30 years in the industry, Repp, the general counsel at the Chicago-based […]

John G. Saia – WageWorks

He essentially worked his way out of a desirable position, even hastening his departure, by streamlining the process that resulted in WageWorks being absorbed last summer by HealthEquity Inc., which is headquartered in the Salt Lake City suburb of Draper, Utah. John G. Saia remains anchored in the Bay Area where many professional opportunities would […]

Claudia Cantarella – Broadway Technology

Broadway Technology had been making its mark by building intelligent trading systems for some of the world’s leading financial institutions, but was ringing up big outside legal costs as its business model and the industry itself were becoming more sophisticated. Finally in early 2013 the company committed to bringing its legal expertise in-house, welcoming Claudia […]

Lori Buchanan Goldman – Bryn Mawr Trust

With a couple of pending acquisitions and internal build-outs on her to-do list, the workload was heavy in 2017, causing Lori Buchanan Goldman to think creatively in her capacity as legal boss at Bryn Mawr Trust. Head of what was then just a three-member legal team for the regional bank in Greater Philadelphia, Goldman didn’t […]

Jason Reiser – eMoney Advisor

It’s not something people like to talk about, or even think about, especially when they are young. Yet a lack of financial and retirement planning can come back to haunt people as they get older. As reported in a recent GOBankingRates survey, 64 percent of people asked said they expect to retire with less than […]

Douglas Charton – GMO

Douglas Charton vividly remembers sitting in an internet café on the Greek island of Ios in the Summer of 2007, enjoying a much-deserved holiday following the bar exam. It was there he received an email notifying him he got a job in the Investment Management practice group of K&L Gates LLP, a prominent global law […]

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.
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.
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.
