Following Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on social media, it would be fair to wonder if he is operating with more hours in a day than everyone else. Whether working out at midnight, filming a movie, supporting his Teremana tequila brand or ZOA Energy drink business, popping up on WWE TV to electrify the WWE Universe […]

Novak. Rafa. Roger. Serena. To tennis fans, these names will instantly evoke climactic clashes and extraordinary displays of skill. They’ll also recall gripping tales of professional rivalries and sacrifices made for the game. Enabling the Tennis Channel to broadcast those stories is Peter Steckelman, the channel’s senior vice president of business and legal affairs. An […]

The 13 days between the NFL’s conference championship games and the Super Bowl are filled with many things. There are practices, video sessions, meetings and media obligations for players and coaches. There are also parties and other events for fans in the host city. There’s also a common feeling among everyone involved: anticipation. And not […]

Sean P. Murphy – The St. James

Est. reading time: 5 mins

An exercise in futility? It might have initially felt that way for Sean P. Murphy during the spring of 2020. As the new general counsel of a comprehensive sports, wellness and entertainment business in Springfield, Virginia, he submitted two applications to the federal government for Paycheck Protection Program relief. COVID-19 having forced The St. James […]

As a child, Joe Pinter created memories with his father at the old Chicago Stadium, watching Chicago Blackhawks skate up and down the ice. “It was a magical experience. It was Broadway on ice,” he recalls. Though his dreams of playing pro hockey never materialized, Pinter is doing the next best thing as a certified […]

Alan T. Micallef – NASCAR

It seemed a match made in racing heaven, NASCAR absorbing the International Speedway Corporation in a $2 billion transaction in October 2019. “A historic moment for our sport,” Chairman and CEO Jim France proclaimed, one that delisted ISC from Nasdaq and put it and its 13 tracks under NASCAR’s private ownership. Likely, the transaction paved […]

Giles Kibbe – Houston Astros

For anyone involved in professional baseball, winning the World Series is the goal. Do that, and you’ve reached the pinnacle, the apex and the top of the mountain. But for Giles Kibbe, the general counsel for the Houston Astros, it was the rebuild of the organization before the team’s first world championship that was most […]

Betsy Philpott – Washington Nationals

Est. reading time: 4 mins

“Next year” has arrived, and while it’s had ups and downs for the Washington Nationals, at least baseball is returning to normal with a 162-game schedule, turnstiles opening to capacity and no more cardboard cutouts as placeholders for fans. An afternoon at Nationals Park is again an event to relish for the team’s passionate general […]

Diego Di Giacomo – Puma Group

Originally hailing from Bahía Blanca, a port city in southwest Argentina’s Buenos Aires province, Diego Di Giacomo grew up in a social and political environment that was constantly changing. Di Giacomo credits his upbringing for instilling in him a steadfast drive to find solutions. “During the last 40 years in Argentina, every 10 years we’ve […]

Mandy Petrillo – Boston Red Sox

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Wait ‘til next year. For decades, those words marked a rite of autumn at Fenway Park, though recent times—except for last year—have been kinder to the Boston Red Sox or, as they’re so affectionally known, the Olde Towne Team. Still, it would have been understandable if those words crossed Mandy Petrillo’s lips in 2020 as, […]

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.
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.
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.
