Anthony Wilson – Design.ME Hair

Anthony Wilson didn’t go on a shopping trip for healthy and beauty products in Paraguay because he has exotic tastes.  Wilson ventured south, instead, in search of fake products as general counsel for Moroccanoil. He’s also helped set up sting operations in those regions to protect the company’s brands from infringement and counterfeiting. It was […]

Brad Feuer – Barnes & Noble

The chapters that tell the history of Barnes & Noble cover almost 150 years, from the company’s humble roots as the home business of Charles M. Barnes to its emergence as a global retailer under the ownership and leadership of Len Riggio. For the last 20 years, Brad Feuer has been part of that unfolding […]

Christian Roy – Groupe Dynamite

You may already know what you want from a Groupe Dynamite store after looking online, but do you know what else may be on sale to complement your fashion style? You’ll find out from texts or emails alerts, but they only show up as you park at the mall to shop at one of the […]

Craig Levine – WASH Multifamily Laundry Systems

Doing laundry is one of life’s necessities. Carrying a handful of quarters around with you—not so much. Online mobile payment apps are helping to change the status quo by eliminating the need for credit and debit cards, in turn making handfuls of quarters (for laundry at least) a thing of the past. Craig Levine is […]

David Gonzales – Supermercado El Rancho

There’s a special feeling when you walk into a Supermercado El Rancho, the rapidly expanding Mexican supermarket chain with a growing presence in Texas and likely soon elsewhere. Call it a vibe that transcends the festive décor and eclectic product lines. Clearly, this isn’t your parents’ standard Kroger or Publix, says Chief Legal Counsel and […]

Ellen Sheedy – KEEN

While working as an attorney at Perkins Coie in Portland, Oregon, Ellen Sheedy would often take quick breaks to walk around the neighborhood. During these jaunts, she says she probably passed the global headquarters of footwear company KEEN 1,000 times. Sheedy knew that the company had a long-standing connection to making the outdoors accessible, a passion […]

Greg Kerr – Wolseley Canada

It never hurts to retain an outsider’s perspective, even when one is an in-house lawyer. Maybe especially so. So says Greg Kerr who’s held in-house positions with Wolseley Canada since 2013, his most recent promotion being to general counsel and vice president of legal, risk and compliance in July 2019. That’s put him in charge […]

Jason Pollack – Christie’s

Evening sales at Christie’s in New York City are not to be missed, a highlight of the social calendar where billionaires are ready to raise their paddles and bid on rare and obscure objects—art by DaVinci or Picasso, jewelry, and recently, an artifact from the Jurassic period. But all that changed in 2020 when the […]

Jeff Benjamin – Avon Products Inc.

He’s earned his second retirement, having come out of his first in 2012,  after a brief respite that followed 37 eventful years in a variety of general counseling, ethics and compliance roles to the U.S. operations of Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis. So in early 2017, Jeff Benjamin informed his employer of the preceding five years, […]

Jessica Mastrogiovanni – New York & Company

In the apparel industry, ideas are a company’s lifeblood. Fresh designs, new fashion lines, trendsetting concepts—businesses have entire teams dedicated to brainstorming the next big thing. With a multitude of ideas, one can imagine the legal touch points are as many and close together as pencil stripes on a blouse. Among them, corporate governance, employment, […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
