Features Manufacturing

Jimmie Strong – Rosmar USA Inc.

Though the timing is ideal, there’s not an hour—much less a day—to waste. So emphasizes Jimmie Strong in January while speeding from his Memphis home to Nashville. It’s in Music City where he’s grooming the U.S. affiliate to a Mexican manufacturer of industrial and personal sanitizing solutions and wipes. The need for such wares has […]

Mark Rosebrock – Jadex Inc.

Quite the interesting scenario that Mark Rosebrock chose in the summer of 2019. Much had happened at Jarden Corp. since he served as associate general counsel from 2007 to 2011, as well as at other affiliated companies through 2017, and returned, in a way, last year. First, Jarden, a consumer products company, was no more, […]

T.J. Mattimore – Vaisala

For a Finnish company that literally sees the sky as its limit, there’s some irony in Vaisala doing so much unseen. Though that doesn’t seem to weigh too heavily on the mind of its president for the U.S. subsidiary and legal boss for the United States, Canada and Mexico. At the very least, T.J. Mattimore […]

Erica Powell Bell – Mobex Global

While growing up in Alabama and learning in her elementary class about the state’s troubled history related to slavery, segregation and civil rights, Erica Powell Bell figured it out. She knew what she wanted to do. “I told myself I wanted to do something that ensured that those types of atrocities, like slavery and Jim […]

Philly Shipyard – Dean Grabelle

In the spring of 2019 operations at the Philly Shipyard were looking bleak. A lack of contracts had idled production and the workforce had been slashed from 1,200 down to around 80, says Dean Grabelle. But Grabelle had hope. After laboring over proposals for months as Philly Shipyard’s senior vice president and general counsel, word […]

Josh Johnson – Primetals Technologies

As if those tariffs hadn’t been complicated enough on their own. So muses the good-natured Josh Johnson four years after he became general counsel for the U.S.-based operations of Primetals Technologies. An international engineering and plant construction company serving the metals industry, it relies on Johnson’s insight on all matters tariff-related—and COVID-19 related. The high […]

Paola Monzon-Cheng – Nitto Americas

So, who expected that in January 2020, buying milk or bread would mean being separated from a cashier by sheets of clear protective film? Or that pizza you ordered would be dropped off outside your door as you waved at the delivery driver? Not Paola Monzon-Cheng, though as head of legal for Nitto Americas, she […]

Jon Howell – Hyperice

OK, he would have preferred cheering on his favorite team, the now curiously named Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim instead of the Los Angeles Dodgers. But Jon Howell still relished being in the select crowd that could witness the World Series in person. A fall classic it was, the Dodgers defeating the Tampa Bay Rays […]

Gonzalo Aguirrebengoa – Komatsu

During his legal career, Gonzalo Aguirrebengoa may not have been to the ends of the earth, but don’t count him out on trying. Born in Argentina, he lived in Chile, Peru and Venezuela before coming to the Chicago area as a legal manager for Komatsu, the Japanese manufacturer of heavy industrial equipment used in construction, […]

Matt Boisen – Highspot

Sometimes on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram some corporate executive, celebrity, athlete or journalist posts a picture of their phone that shows a truly unwieldly number of unread emails. Who are these people, and why are they so busy they can’t read or delete these thousands of messages? Matt Boisen knows how to help them, just […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
