Features Investment

Jonathan Socolow – Silverpeak

Soon that mothballed refinery in Newfoundland will be fully back in business. Only it’ll be a different and much greener business for the rebranded Braya Renewable Fuels facility on the southeast corner of Maritime Canada’s fabled “The Rock.”  The newly reorganized terminal will again accept deliveries from ocean-going tankers and distribute the refined product to […]

Sarah Kreisman – Independent Financial Group, LLC

During her more than two decades in the financial services sector, Sarah Kreisman has encountered her fair share of obstacles, many of them related to being a woman in a traditionally male-dominated field. She’s also learned a valuable lesson: More than anything, earning respect is about who you are and how you treat others. “I’ve […]

James J. Killerlane III – BNY Mellon

Last summer, a genuine Wall Street heavyweight, BNY Mellon, was characterized for something seemingly unrelated to its fiscal performance. According to an internal review comparing proxy statements of Fortune 200 companies, BNY Mellon was tied first in metrics for gender and ethnic diversity relating to the composition of its board of directors. Only it is […]

Michael Phillips – Alumni Ventures

Say you’re a dentist in a small town in Iowa. You’ve built a successful practice, and now you’re ready to invest some of your earnings. In the past, certain private investments were essentially unavailable to you. But thanks to some forward-thinking venture capital firms, that playing field is growing more level by the year. While […]

Joshua Sidney Hyman – Integrated Financial Holdings

Joshua Sidney Hyman never liked being office-bound as an attorney, but visiting a hemp farm in Kentucky was unusual even for him. Hemp, which is of the same species as cannabis but has a THC level of 0.3 percent or less, was a staple crop from the earliest colonization of the U.S., grown at Mount […]

Byron Hittle – Janus Henderson Investors

When Byron Hittle decided not to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a trial lawyer, it wasn’t because he didn’t want to be like him. Hittle just wanted a different experience than arguing cases and being at the whim of court schedules and judges, so he went the corporate route. “I wanted to be […]

Brodie Swartz – OMERS

His 20-year legal career almost evenly divided between the first half in private practice and the rest with OMERS, the pension plan for Ontario municipal employees, Brodie Swartz describes why he finds the latter responsibility more compelling. “It may sound trite to say, but each day you get up to work for over 500,000 people […]

Shalomi Abraham – Invesco Canada

On an overcast day in the Spring of 2009, Shalomi Abraham woke up early, packed his lunch, put on a crisp suit and showed up for his first day on the job with a large coffee in hand. While being trotted around the company for the requisite introductions, the last thing he expected was hearing […]

Tiffany Kenyon – National Storage Affiliates Trust

Tiffany Kenyon admits she knew little about the self-storage industry when she was contacted by Arlen Nordhagen of National Storage Affiliates Trust in 2018 about building and leading the company’s legal department. Nonetheless, she was intrigued and joined the company. Since then, it’s been baptism by fire for Kenyon at the fast-growing company. In addition […]

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 […]

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.
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.
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.
