Anthony Sharett – Meta Financial Group Inc.

Anthony Sharett says he always wanted to make a difference for those who needed it most, and that factored into him joining Meta Financial Group Inc. in the fall of 2019. For this is the Sioux Falls-headquartered holding company of MetaBank, a financial services support company with locations throughout the United States, as well as financial agent to the […]

Chris Weinstock – PennyMac Loan Services

The customer is always right and, for well over a year, that customer has been demanding a remote mortgage. Post-pandemic, that’s likely to be the new normal. So notes Chris Weinstock, who’s long taken the pulse of prospective home buyers. During the late 1990s, he aided their cause as a deputy general counsel at Countrywide […]

Eric Banta – Voya

Eric Banta fell in love with Colorado as a young man, drawn to the mountains, the skiing and the climate as a backdrop to his studies. By the time he joined the corporate legal department for ING U.S. in 1996, the state had become something else: home. So when the financial services company (rebranded as […]

Kate Mahan – United Federal Credit Union

Her employer having four focuses, Kate Mahan is immersed in all, with something called process excellence at the top of the list. It being a most general focus, process excellence can be anything and everything, but whatever it is on a given day, it’s likely to involve Mahan collaborating with other departments at United Federal […]

Greg Hoffman – Farm Credit Mid-America

Don’t confuse Farm Credit Mid-America with a bank, says Greg Hoffman. Farming, after all, is cyclical, and banks enter and leave the agricultural financing market when the economics make sense to them. But Farm Credit Mid-America is owned by farmers and has a mission to serve agriculture and rural communities through thick and thin. That, […]

Matthew C. Scott – CI Financial

The acquisitions keep on coming, among CI Financial’s most recent being Dowling & Yahnke Wealth Advisors. A San Diego-based registered investment advisor, it has $5.1 billion in assets and serves over 1,300 clients, primarily individuals, families and nonprofits. Its accolades include being named to the FT 300 Top Registered Investment Advisors list each year since […]

Julie Pine – Lead Bank

It can be difficult to get a credit card if you have bad credit or no credit at all. Many banks don’t trust young people or people with low credit and deny them loans or cards. Lead Bank gives customers the benefit of the doubt, though, and works with them to build their credit responsibly, […]

Anna Novoseletsky – Discover Financial Services

Having lived in multiple countries—and passing the bar exam in three—Ukraine native Anna Novoseletsky can’t help but look at the world through the lens of globalization. That international perspective drives Novoseletsky in her role as the legal head of global payments and senior counsel at Discover Financial Services in Illinois. For the veteran corporate attorney, […]

Lynde Selden – Plaza Home Mortgage

“Did you see this?” That was the question posed to Plaza Home Mortgage General Counsel Lynde Selden by the CEO’s assistant in early March. Both were puzzled by the printout of an “Equitable Remittance Coupon”—supposedly valued at $250,000. The person who’d sent the CEO this “voucher” was using it to pay a $150,000 home loan. […]

Regan Schmidt – CNG Holdings, Inc.

Imagine you’re a father of three. As the breadwinner, you work hard to pay the bills and provide for your family, but a few weeks into the COVID-19 pandemic, you lose your job. Like many, you wait for weeks to receive unemployment benefits. Then the refrigerator dies, and you have no choice but to pull […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
