Nancy Bishai – APP Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Growing up, Nancy Bishai spent Sunday nights glued to Fashion Television. The Canadian TV program featured runway shows and interviews with fashion designers, exposing Bishai to “the glamour and the artistry of haute couture.” When she was 15, she received a subscription to Vogue magazine from her aunt, further solidifying her love of fashion. Still, […]

David Gonzales – Supermercado El Rancho

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Jason Pollack – Christie’s

Est. reading time: 5 mins

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 […]

Kindel Nuno – Mattress Firm

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Kindel Nuno vividly remembers the day she interviewed for the general counsel role at Mattress Firm in 2012. Despite her extensive legal background, former CEO Steve Stagner worried that she lacked the needed business experience. Still, as Nuno walked out the door of his office, Stagner told her, “We’ll take a chance on you.” By […]

Imagine you’ve just settled into your seat. The flight attendants finish their safety briefing as the jumbo jet pushes back from the gate. You take out some headphones and an iPad or a magazine and prepare for the 3,000-mile cross-country journey. Then you hear those dreaded words from the person sitting next to you: “So, […]

Kimberly Eberwine – Procter & Gamble

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For Kimberly Eberwine, serving as general counsel, Canada for global consumer goods giant Procter & Gamble, requires a lot of translating—more so culture than languages. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Eberwine met her Canadian husband while working at Club Med in Mexico. He popped the question when they were living on Grand Cayman a year […]

Peter Mastrostefano – PUMA Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When his parents bought him his first pair of white and blue PUMA suede sneakers with the trademark leaping cat logo on the tongue and heel of the shoes, Peter Mastrostefano was just eight years old. He never imagined that he’d one day become the senior vice president and general counsel for the North American […]

Robert W. “Robbie” Kamerschen – Aaron’s Inc.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

After weeks of near-incessant racket, that clunking noise in the refrigerator finally stopped. Unfortunately, so did the refrigerator. On a hot summer day, there’s little time to find a replacement, and with a pandemic hitting everyone’s wallet, there’s no cash to buy a new one. For many people, it’s a squeeze that’s all too familiar, […]

Jonathan Truppman – Casper

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Perhaps it’s a business investment proposition everyone can bank on—because every person requires sleep. Armed with the premise of a no-fail argument, award-winning products and an attorney who made the list of “up-and-coming lawyers to watch in 2018,” New York-based Casper went public in February. After six years of work, it became the first publicly-owned […]

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 […]

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.
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.
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.
