Features Latin America

Alejandro Fernandez Ramirez-Buendia – Cotemar

He joined the legal department of Cotemar, Mexico’s dominant oilfields services provider, at a most challenging time in 2013, when petroleum prices were at a low. The situation wasn’t much better three years later, when Alejandro Fernandez Ramirez-Buendia was promoted to head of legal and general counsel, but much of the reason for his hiring […]

Alejandro Nino – Uber

At first glance, the last thing an Uber customer needed during a government stay-at-home order amid the COVID-19 pandemic was a ride. Literally, where could you go? But upon further reflection, Uber’s situation offered the multinational technology company an opportunity to innovate and positively contribute to communities during a crisis. Through development of new safety […]

Alvaro Gómez- Godoy – Grupo Rotoplas

It’s not something many Americans have to worry about, putting plastic containers on rooftops to ensure a reliable and constant supply of water. But to Alvaro Gómez-Godoy, and many people in Mexico City and throughout Latin America, its commonplace. That’s what makes his work as general counsel and compliance officer at Mexico City-based Grupo Rotoplas—a […]

Alvaro Gutierrez – RB

During an infectious disease pandemic, cleaning products are essential, and there are few household cleaners better known than Lysol. As the regional legal director for Mexico and Latin America at RB, maker of the iconic disinfectant spray, Alvaro Gutierrez is tasked with keeping product approvals moving, changing product labels to reflect the times, and streamlining […]

Alvaro Martinez – Sodexo (Latin America)

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve met a CEO or two. The same goes for general counsels. Even if you haven’t met any, you know about them. Seeing someone wear both hats at once? You might’ve just found a corporate unicorn. Only, you needn’t scour some ethereal forest to find Alvaro Martinez. He’s out […]

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 […]

Ana Cristina Flores Peña – Absormex CMPC Tissue

An in-house role, ideally a general counselship, had long been among Ana Cristina Flores Peña’s professional goals. Only she thought it could wait until later in her career, like perhaps when she was in her mid-30s. She wouldn’t have to wait that long, for in 2017 the opportunity presented itself at the Mexican division of […]

Ana Torreblanca – Cargill

Perhaps the last thing Ana Torreblanca expected during the COVID-19 pandemic was to find a renewed sense of spirituality, but that’s exactly what this Mexico City native discovered in those emerging quiet spaces that crept into her life amidst the chaos inflicted on society and business. Forced to work remotely during the pandemic as a […]

Anahi Llop – OLX Brazil

There it is: the wheels you’ve always wanted; a scarf that will make you look stylish while you drive; the handbag that brings the whole look together. And now, after endless online searches, you’ve finally found someone who’s selling them—not at retail, but as a gently used item that fits perfectly in your budget. For […]

Araceli Enriquez – Takeda

When the Doctor Vagón health train started rolling into marginalized villages across the Mexican countryside this year, the medical team aboard was delivering a message of hope and information to hundreds of people suffering from one of the country’s biggest killers: diabetes. The Vagón train and a cancer patient assistance program to help those who […]

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.
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.
