Chris Figel – AirBoss of America Corp.

A young lawyer who had just achieved partnership in his second go-around with a prestigious Toronto firm, Chris Figel began to feel like the de facto general counsel of AirBoss of America Corp. during the late 2010s. The Canadian-based company supplies compounded and engineered rubber products to heavy industries and North America’s armed forces. It had […]

Valeria Plastino – Lumen Technologies

For nearly as long she can remember, Valeria Plastino has wanted to connect the world though business and communications. Coming of age in Argentina, she was fascinated with globalization and the development of the internet. And she was just as interested in how legal traditions would be applied to global business changes. Now vice president, […]

Anuj Gupta – eko

Anuj Gupta has always been interested in film, but when he switched from studying political science to attending film school, he learned more than the craft. There were “no people that looked like me in film school,” he recalls, which reflected what he saw in movies and on television. South Asian characters were few, especially […]

James Casey – Akamai Technologies

Mr. Rogers, Mr. Ed and Mr. Magoo are household names, but what about Mr. Framework? While he’s not a lovable children’s TV host, a talking horse or a bumbling cartoon character, James Casey’s role is just as important to the continued success of Akamai Technologies. As the company’s chief privacy officer, Casey believes strong compliance […]

Danielle Sheer – Bottomline Technologies

More than 10 years ago, Danielle Sheer took a contemplative walk from her midtown Manhattan office back to her Upper West Side apartment. As an attorney at a big-city firm, she’d just finished helping a company through an acquisition and realized she had no practical reason to stay in touch with her clients. “I had […]

Lee Schneider – Block.one

Many people assume their personal documents and data are safe online, especially if they’re protected by a hospital or bank. Anyone can be hacked, though, and most documents can be duplicated and forged or sold online. Anything from medical records, marriage licenses and diplomas to bank accounts and frequent flyer miles can be copied, ruining […]

Ron Zollman – Boomi

In both his career and personal life, Ron Zollman has found that small things can have a big impact. For instance, as a lawyer and as a nonprofit volunteer, he’s discovered that lots can be accomplished by small teams dedicated to whom they’re serving. Whether growing a company or supporting his community, he relies on […]

Oscar Ortiz – Brightstar Mexico

Growing up in Mexico City, Oscar Ortiz says his life could’ve taken many unexpected turns, but a close-knit family helped—especially his grandfather Antonio, who stepped in as a father figure. Ortiz remembers learning life lessons as he handed wrenches to his grandad, an auto mechanic. Sadly, however, he also remembers his grandfather saying that in […]

Orisia K. Gammell – SAP America

She’s focused her career on trade compliance, and what an evolving subject that’s been. Evolving enough when it just involved movement of physical goods, as it mostly did when Orisia K. Gammell started as an associate at a high-powered law firm in Washington, D.C. How much higher the stakes can be as the global economy […]

Leandro Campos – Synnex Westcon/Comstor

Even when he’s dealing with the smallest of legal details, Leandro Campos always tries to take the long view. In more than 15 years of practicing law in-house, Campos has sought to be a business partner as much as a legal resource for the multinational firms he’s worked for in his native Brazil. Now, as […]

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.
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.
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.
