Bill Tomaszewski – Wine.com

When Bill Tomaszewski says he’s the luckiest man in the world, he can make a case using his own metrics. He may be far from the richest Bill around—the one with the Gates surname would claim that honor by light years—but he is set financially. The 20 years he spent as a New Jersey cop […]

Brandon Mazer – Shipyard Brewing Co.

When the Matador Network, the social media gathering spot for tourists, crowned Portland, Maine, the world’s best city for craft beer in 2016—well ahead of such hoppy hot spots as Munich, Prague and Melbourne, Australia—the folks at Shipyard Brewing Co. had reason to raise a pint. Shipyard is, after all, the biggest craft brewer not […]

Best behavior is treating mental illness

It may be an exaggeration, but not much of one, to say that the nation’s largest behavioral health pharmacy and telepsychiatry provider is growing by the day. Maybe every other day. Or two of three. The day before its energetic general counsel, executive vice president and secretary, Alexander “Aly” M. Kayne, spoke with Vanguard in […]

Brookfield Property Partners

The cliché perpetuated throughout popular culture—think of the handful of “Law and Order” iterations or many a John Grisham book—is that lawyers are lone wolves who keep the lights burning in their offices deep into the night, pursuing their cases no matter the expense to their personal lives, health or relationships. While the law profession […]

Building a legal career in construction and engineering

Ask a lawyer, especially a young one, what’s the biggest headache to working at a firm, and the answer may well be the pressure from above to rack up 2,000 billable hours in the course of a year. The overhead at the professional associations tends to be huge, and so the high-handed ideals that might […]

Brian Burke – Calgary Flames

When Brian Burke was a senior at Providence College and captain of the hockey team during the 1976-1977 season, his coach, Lou Lamoriello, called the driven, hard-nosed young man into his office and told him he had to take the upcoming Law School Admission Test. Though an excellent student who would be a Rhodes Scholar […]

Bob Temple – NuScale Power LLC

For almost 10 years, NuScale Power LLC has been developing safer, smaller, scalable nuclear power technology. But the company, which has more than 450 employees and receives hundreds of millions of dollars in funding each year, has only a trickle of revenue. The technology NuScale is developing grew out of a Department of Energy (DOE) funded […]

Bella Sanevich – NISA Investment Advisors LLC

Sometimes the old model stops working. Case in point: the retirement savings model Americans relied on for decades. Traditionally, companies provided their employees with defined-benefit pension plans that, if the employee served for a predetermined number of years, would pay the individual some set amount of money for the rest of his or her life. […]
