Features Private Sector

Alex Liberman – Medline Industries Inc.

It’s hard to imagine that Medline, a company that earns almost $9 billion in annual revenue and is the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies in the U.S., could have an underdog mentality. But Medline has held on to the conservative, detail-oriented ethos that helped it grow from a small manufacturer of […]

Eric Reicin – MorganFranklin Inc. and MorganFranklin Consulting LLC

Eric Reicin believes there are four levels of in-house counsel: the scribe, the legal practitioner, the trusted advisor and the business partner. “The leading in-house counsels are focusing most of the time on the trusted advisor and the business partner roles,” says Reicin, who is vice president, corporate counsel and general counsel at MorganFranklin Consulting. […]

Steve Gaer – R&R Realty Group

Steve Gaer keeps his general counsel card in his back pocket, literally. Most of the time, when he goes into business meetings with R&R Realty Group, he passes out his chief operative officer (COO) business card. Gaer joined R&R Realty Group—a 30-year-old family-owned full service commercial real estate company based in West Des Moines, Iowa—in […]

Matthew Esber – Interactive Life Forms LLC

Matt Esber’s job isn’t sexy, at least not for the industry he’s in. Esber is general counsel of Interactive Life Forms LLC, a company that manufactures sex toys, occasionally called “sexual health aids” or “marital aids” depending on who you talk to. The company is best known for one of its several products: the Fleshlight. […]

Thomas G. Siciliano – Municipal Credit Union

Thomas G. Siciliano never expected to see his name in the index of a textbook, and when he joined Municipal Credit Union (MCU) as general counsel at the age of 27, he never expected he’d stay there for 35 years. When he interviewed for the job as general counsel, just a couple years out of […]

David Peitsch – Keller Foundations LLC

After almost 18 years with Keller Foundations LLC, David Peitsch is still one of the new people. Keller Foundations LLC is the North American division of global ground engineering and foundation services company Keller Group PLC. In the 18 years since Peitsch, chief legal officer and ethics & compliance officer, has been with the company, […]

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. […]

Hoyt Webb – Legrand North America LLC

To say that Hoyt Webb has international experience would be something of an understatement. His role as vice president and general counsel for Legrand North America, a global provider of products and systems for electrical installations and information networks, requires a good deal of travel, including to the parent company, Legrand S.A., in Limoges, France. […]

Carrie Hightman – NiSource Inc.

Throughout her career, Carrie Hightman has often been one of the only women at the table. Now, as chief legal officer for NiSource Inc., one of the largest gas and electric utility companies in the U.S., Hightman is working to bring not just women, but people from all backgrounds to the table through leading a […]

GSE Systems

When pilots are learning to fly, they often use a flight simulator. It is, after all, much safer and less costly to crash a computer than an airplane. In a similar vein, GSE Systems constructs highly accurate computer simulators for nuclear and fossil fuel power plants, the petroleum industry and other industrial processors. These simulators […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
