Francine Breckenridge – U.S. Money Reserve

In the retirement business, trust is key. For U.S. Money Reserve, a precious metals distributor headquartered in Austin, Texas, building trust is as valuable a commodity as the gold on which the company built its business. Having served more than 550,000 customers since its founding, and with millions of baby boomers poised to retire, USMR […]

Ana Beatriz Guillén Vindas – Grupo Financiero ACOBO

Like many employees at financial institutions worldwide, the team at Grupo Financiero ACOBO wasn’t sure what to expect during a government shutdown two months into the COVID-19 pandemic. With financial markets in a state of flux and ACOBO’s customers confined to their homes—not to mention a still-deepening economic crisis—Legal Director Ana Beatriz Guillén Vindas says […]

Anna Paglia – Invesco US

Prior to COVID-19, the thought of her son interrupting a business video mortified Anna Paglia. But now, like other parents and professionals working remotely and juggling responsibilities, she knows it’s understandable if a child accidentally “shares” some screen time. While many companies are preparing to move back on-site after the pandemic, Invesco US, her employer, […]

Phyllis J. Zanghi – American Equity Investment Life Insurance Company

A self-professed “nerd through and through,” and at ease among alternative assets, annuities and actuaries, Phyllis J. Zanghi couldn’t help but be intrigued at a new opportunity in 2020. Though a valued member of the Brighthouse Financial legal team in Charlotte, North Carolina, for over three years, the opportunity arose to take part in the […]

Lisa A. Gok – Cetera Financial Group

  She calls it SEC speech—and there are no Rosetta Stone classes to learn it. Lisa A. Gok picked it up during her 11 years as an assistant regional director for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in Los Angeles and it has served her well in subsequent jobs. Maybe especially so at Cetera Financial […]

Owen Taylor – LCH

If he were explaining his niche financial specialty—clearing—to his parents, Owen Taylor would do it like this: “Think of a clearing house like a buffer for the financial markets,” he says. “Banks, rather than interacting with each other, use a clearing house so that if one of them fails, there isn’t a domino rally that […]

Ashley Good – Acorns

As a young child, Ashley Good stored bits of change and odd job money in a bright pink cash box. She’s still watching every dollar today, albeit for much higher stakes at Acorns, a California-based fintech company specializing in micro-investing. The California native joined Acorns in March 2020 as chief legal officer, bringing sales and […]

Andrea Andre – Axcess Financial

Consumers beware: COVID-19 has unleashed scam artists preying upon the most economically vulnerable. A couple of federal stimulus checks notwithstanding, many people of modest means remain hard-pressed to scrape together their next rent, car payment, credit card bill or whatever. It’s all the more reason why Andrea Andre is so committed to uphold trust in […]

Angela Borreggine – Allianz Global Investors

Angela Borreggine knows how to make herself heard—it’s hard not to, considering one of her passions is singing with the Cecilia Chorus of New York as well as the Brooklyn Oratory Choir at St. Boniface. But the notes Borreggine hits as chief legal officer at Allianz Global Investors are equally high—and complex. As of November, […]

Stuart Lurie – Certified Collectibles Group

A Marvel and Star Wars aficionado since boyhood, Stuart Lurie hopes that the new year brings a return of the real live comic book convention. Those so-called comic-cons often attract tens of thousands of fans to major venues nationwide but last year mostly went virtual, if at all, what with COVID-19 being beyond the saving […]

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.
