Features Manufacturing

Jonathan Truppman – Casper

Jonathan Truppman has never slept so well since becoming legal boss of global sleep company Casper, but he couldn’t have predicted that in early 2015, when joining the Big Apple startup seemed the lesser of two career paths. The most appealing—at least for most young lawyers—would have led back to Miami, where the then 29-year-old […]

Jordan Goodman – Mark Andy Inc.

Sometimes the circumstances are just right. Not long after Jordan Goodman relocated from Chicago to St. Louis, the investment group in which he was involved was looking to acquire the world’s leading manufacturer of narrow-web printing and finishing equipment. Following the acquisition, Goodman became the general counsel and vice president of human resources for the […]

Joseph Tristine – Precision Resource

We all try to balance work life and home life, and there are those who achieve that balance by bringing family values into the workplace. That’s the approach taken by Joe Tristine, general counsel and chief HR officer for Precision Resource, a privately-owned global manufacturer of metal component parts. “Everything I do is for my […]

Joshua Johnson – Primetals Technologies

There’s a reality that Joshua Johnson can’t help but note. Business leaders in numerous industries, whether they advocated or opposed the steel and aluminum tariffs that went into effect this past summer, now have an additional task. They must stay up to date with the latest trade developments in order to successfully navigate a changing […]

Kevin Colby – GOWell International

While earning his Masters in theater at New York’s Hunter College, where he won the school’s esteemed Playwright’s Award, Kevin Colby developed a knack for syntactic detail: finding the perfect noun or verb, discovering how even a seemingly innocuous word can forever alter a character’s fate and—most important of all—understanding how every element must be […]

Kristen Hughes – Elevate Textiles Inc.

When Kristen Hughes joined thread manufacturer American & Efird LLC as a corporate counsel in 2014, she didn’t have a five-year plan. Then again, if you told her she would be shepherding five acquisitions and would see an eventual promotion to full-on general counsel for the global company, she would honestly say she didn’t see […]

Luke E. Alverson – CSW Industrials

There they were, six companies spun off by Capital Southwest Corp., in the fall of 2015 and coming together under a new standalone called CSW Industrials (CSWI). Though all industrially focused, they had operated independently with little, if any, interaction among their leadership teams. Now they were to comprise the main pillars of a new, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Paul C. Nightingale – HP Hood

With the holiday season in full swing when Paul C. Nightingale spoke to Vanguard, cartons of Southern Comfort’s nonalcoholic eggnog were hitting the checkout counters at grocery stores everywhere. But what consumers might not have known was that their favorite spicy beverage only bears the brand name of the famous Dixie whiskey distiller. It’s actually […]

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.
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.
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.
