Est. reading time: 4 mins

From asphalt plants and railroads in Chile to the new monorail line in Panama City, Mario Andres Salgado’s work as legal manager for the Latin America and Caribbean divisions of the Colas Group takes him places. That’s because meeting with engineers, contractors, plant managers and outside counsel is crucial to understanding the needs of the […]

Albert Nicholson – loanDepot

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Albert Nicholson never aspired to be an attorney, let alone practice law while earning his bachelor’s degree in mass and organizational communications studies from the University of California, Los Angeles. However, when he took a required course in the legal process, his interest in law was piqued. Then, when he was exposed to labor and […]

Tom Harris – Transdev

Est. reading time: 4 mins

If getting there is half the fun, it’s also true that it’s not always easy. That’s the case for many of Transdev North America’s customers—people of limited means and sometimes mobility who don’t own vehicles and aren’t able to walk for errands, medical appointments or family visits. Transdev operates transportation systems, including specialized paratransit services […]

Roland M. “Ron” Lowell – Western Express

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When it rains, it pours, but the strong endure. Such seemed the case at Western Express for much of 2020, the Nashville-based trucking and logistics operation faced with threefold adversity but keeping the big wheels rolling. First were tornados sweeping through parts of Tennessee and adjoining states in early March, damaging and destroying some parts […]

Stephanie Vadasz Randall – Milestone Equipment Holdings

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Making a good thing even better is easier when you’ve done it before. Just ask Stephanie Randall.  When she joined Milestone Equipment Holdings more than four years ago, it was already one of the nation’s largest transportation equipment leasing companies. On top of that, the Missouri-based business was looking to expand its national footprint through organic growth and acquisitions.  To facilitate […]

Jill Russell – IndyGo

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Indiana streets may carry only around 3 million of the nearly 300 million vehicles in the U.S., but with mostly single lane roads, time behind the wheel is rising. According to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau, 9.8 percent of workers in 2019 had commutes of over an hour, up from 7.9 percent in […]

Katie Helton – Jack Cooper Investments

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It’s a tradition nearly a century old. New vehicles roll off an assembly line with a sparkle and a new car smell, and Jack Cooper’s team hauls them to dealers or drop lots before they end up in someone’s driveway. Founded in 1928 to haul General Motors vehicles from an assembly plant in the Leeds […]

Marc Marling – CMA CGM North America

Est. reading time: 4 mins

There’s an old line that goes if you want something done, give it to a busy person. A busy person who might even consider sleep an essential waste of time, more than adequately getting by on a couple of hours a night. That, in a nutshell, describes Marc Marling who always seems to have projects […]

Joe Ferguson – DBi Services LLC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Whether it’s hurricane cleanup in Florida or repairs on a tough stretch of Texas highway, the work goes on. It’s an attitude that Joe Ferguson, general counsel for Pennsylvania-based DBi Services, has taken to heart. Only instead of clearing debris, he’s removing roadblocks to success. An asset management and infrastructure services company working with entities […]

Lisa Stephenson – CRST

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Hungry truckers. Civil unrest. Forest fires. Derechos, hurricanes and a pandemic. The only thing that might be missing in 2020 are the locusts, but Lisa Stephenson still maintains she’s the luckiest lawyer in Iowa with the best job in the world. As the vice president and general counsel at CRST International—one of the nation’s largest […]


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.

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.
