Steven Garcia – CAI International Inc.

So, what’s in the container? For Steven Garcia, it’s a fulfilling in-house legal role that’s touched on everything from M&A and maritime law to corporate finance and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission compliance. Now the chief legal officer and corporate secretary for CAI International Inc., Garcia manages legal affairs for one of the three publicly […]

Mark Vane – GEODIS

Even before COVID-19, e-commerce was giving retail shopping a run for its money. It has since become exponentially more popular, increasing on a 15-year scale since the pandemic’s outbreak in the first quarter of 2020. So says an in-house lawyer well-versed in the details. As Mark Vane told Vanguard in February, many people have been […]

Catherine Ann Muldoon – BDP International

For more than 200 years, Philadelphia has been nicknamed the City of Brotherly Love, derived from the Ancient Greek words philos and adelphós. At BDP International, a privately owned global logistics provider and supply chain management company, Catherine Ann Muldoon has spent the last 18 years ensuring there’s plenty of love for her sisters in […]

Sue-Lynn Noel – Purolator

By the age of 12, Sue-Lynn Noel knew she wanted to pursue a career in law. Turning that vision into reality was a different story. Not only were there no lawyers in her family; none of them had ever gone to college. It was during a work experience class in high school—an internship at a […]

Jeffrey Simmons – GlobalTranz

A pandemic notwithstanding, consumer goods must still be delivered by the big rigs and railroads, and some entity has got to manage the logistics for around 25,000 corporate customers throughout North America. Scottsdale, Arizona-based GlobalTranz remains open for business as a cloud-based enabler of the national supply chain. Kind of an Expedia for freight, it […]

Ashianna Esmail – Flexport

It’s an industry ripe for disruption, the age-old process of moving goods from one locale to another. Yet despite the technological revolutions happening around it,  international shipping and logistics haven’t changed as much as one might expect, says Ashianna Esmail, who is in a position to effect some long-overdue modernization at Flexport. A fast-growing global […]

Tamara Lesh – LTK Engineering Services

There may have been some latecomers to this station, but it now appears to be all aboard for expanded rail transit. Especially, it would seem, in major metropolitan areas where bumper-to-bumper vehicular traffic and its noxious emissions necessitate a change in what’s long been commuting as usual. All of which puts LTK Engineering Services on […]

Joshua Frank – STG Logistics

What was your LSAT score? Where did you earn your degree? What was your graduation percentile? What judges have you clerked for? It’s a fallacy, says Joshua Frank, to take the above factors, combine them with an IQ score, mix it all up and— voila!—out comes the best lawyer. An essential component that’s often left […]

Sarah Fisher – The Parking Spot

For Sarah Fisher, the law was a calling she heard from an early age. In the second grade, she dressed in a suit and carried a briefcase to Career Day. By the fifth grade, she was passing out handmade business cards for the “law firm” she had started. Sure, her aspirations had a lot to […]

Paul Kleppetsch – ITS Technologies and Logistics LLC

When Paul Kleppetsch was a kid, his idea of an exciting day off was visiting federal court. His aunt worked in the human resources department for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Whenever he could, he would go with his grandmother to sit in on the day’s various trials and […]

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.
