Features Manufacturing

Doug Balyeat – Pratt Industries Inc.

Asked to elaborate on what it means for a company to have an “entrepreneurial spirit”—a term he frequently uses to describe his current employer’s overall philosophy and approach—Doug Balyeat could’ve leaned on any number of tired clichés: thinking outside the box or dreaming the impossible. You know the lines. Instead, he takes a moment to […]

Erin Wiggins – TS Tech Americas Inc.

It’s the world’s seventh largest automaker by volume, the Japanese-owned Honda Motor Co., which churns out around 5 million vehicles annually. Wherever it’s doing so, there’s likely to be a TS Tech installation nearby, producing the specialized seats and door liners as well as other interior necessities and accessories. Partially owned by Honda, there are […]

Golin Kosowitz – Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions (SPS)

When Golin Kosowitz joined Honeywell in January 2019, one of her first orders of business was to don a safety hat and glasses and venture out on one of the company’s plant floors. But the general counsel for procurement for the multinational company didn’t just want a cursory tour—her intent was to solicit input from […]

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, […]

Hugo Teufel III – Raytheon

As if helping the company navigate the challenges of social distancing and a freefalling economy weren’t enough, Hugo Teufel III has addressed privacy issues associated with one of the largest mergers in American history: that of the Raytheon Company and United Technologies Corporation. Completed in April, the $135 billion deal created the world’s second-largest aerospace […]

Jason Goldman – GKN Powder Metallurgy

When his alarm goes off in the early hours of the morning, Jason Goldman has to remember what time zone he’s in. Then he spends the rest of the day sweeping through the meridians to keep pace with the business needs of the day. It’s been an exciting—and long-awaited—job opportunity for the entrepreneurial-minded lawyer from […]

Joe Bonassar – Dymax Corporation

Whenever Joe Bonassar finds himself wondering what to work on next, he doesn’t use a fancy project-management platform or iPhone app. Instead, he makes the four-step trek from his desk to the whiteboard at the front of his office. There, neatly drawn in black marker, is a square sectioned into four boxes, each with its […]

John Wright – Triumph Group Inc.

While clerking for U.S. District Judge Louis Bechtle in Philadelphia during the early 1980s, John Wright learned lessons from the distinguished jurist that might not have been covered a few years earlier at Villanova School of Law. “He was quite the pragmatist,” remembers Wright, who since 2004 has served as a vice president, general counsel […]

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 […]

Jonathan Gulsvig – Professional Plastics

It was not something Jonathan Gulsvig’s parents ever printed on the T-shirts they made, but it might have been a nice fit. “We don’t need more attorneys, but every family should have one,” he recalls his mother telling him. As he watched his parents operate the family-owned apparel business started by his grandfather, his mother’s […]

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.
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.
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.
