Features Manufacturing

Susan Fornaro – Klöckner Pentaplast

Klöckner Pentaplast’s products are found in refrigerators, medicine cabinets, wallets and even underfoot on a vinyl floor. Since 1965, and now in 31 plants in 18 countries, the company has supplied plastic packaging and product films, even as consumers may take that packaging for granted while opening a container holding what’s for dinner. What’s not […]

Tim Schade – Lifetime Products

Remember when a woman sued Coca-Cola after being hit in the eye with a Sprite bottle cap after she dropped the drink on the ground? Tim Schade certainly does. Specifically, he remembers thinking it wasn’t the company’s fault—that the bottled dropped and became pressurized, or that the cap shot off and struck the woman when […]

Rafael Espinosa – Cummins de Mexico

As the first legal manager for Cummins de Mexico, Rafael Espinosa built its legal department and oversaw legal affairs for its vast operations there. It’s a task he relished because it merged his interests in international business and the law, he says. However, even in building the legal department, the way the company interacted with […]

Ashton Valente – Basin Holdings

When this global holding company brings a new entity into the fold, it’s likely to be for the long term. Such was the case in late 2014 when Basin Holdings acquired FHE, a Colorado-based company providing innovative equipment to the energy industry. Ashton Valente, having become Basin’s first general counsel one year earlier, finalized the […]

Pedro J. Lopez-Baldrich – SharkNinja

Consumers—those of us needing to keep a clean house and functional, simplified kitchen—may associate the SharkNinja brand with everyday chores made easier, everything from robotics and cordless vacuums to preparing food with devices like blenders and multi-cooker appliances. Pedro J. Lopez-Baldrich, the company’s chief legal officer and executive vice president, doesn’t merely see the utility […]

David Onuscheck

After spending 30 years as an integral member of the legal staff at ABB, a Swiss-based provider of power, robotics and automation, David Onuscheck says there won’t be a 31st. But that doesn’t mean his journey is over. In 2020, nearly a decade into his role as general counsel and head of integrity for ABB’s […]

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 […]

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.
