Joe Ferguson – DBi Services LLC

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

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 […]

Karen Wilkinson – Loram Maintenance of Way, Inc.

It was such a promising beginning, being a young, newly married woman with a baby on the way and being accepted into Mitchell Hamline School of Law back in 1998, Karen Wilkinson remembers. But then life took a dramatic turn—for the worse. Having delayed her enrollment in law school for two years to take care […]

Alejandro Nino – Uber

At first glance, the last thing an Uber customer needed during a government stay-at-home order amid the COVID-19 pandemic was a ride. Literally, where could you go? But upon further reflection, Uber’s situation offered the multinational technology company an opportunity to innovate and positively contribute to communities during a crisis. Through development of new safety […]

Jeffrey Simmons – GlobalTranz

A pandemic notwithstanding, consumer goods must still be delivered by the big rigs and railroads, and some entity has got to manage the logistics for around 25,000 corporate customers throughout North America. Scottsdale, Arizona-based GlobalTranz remains open for business as a cloud-based enabler of the national supply chain. Kind of an Expedia for freight, it […]

Vanessa Allen Sutherland – Norfolk Southern Corp.

“It always seems impossible until it is done.” This Nelson Mandela quote has always been a favorite of Vanessa Allen Sutherland. And now is the time for inspiration, she said, speaking to Vanguard as COVID-19 infections were likely starting to peak nationwide in early April. As executive vice president and chief legal officer at Atlanta-based […]

Gareth Carline – Heli-One

When he was in private practice, Gareth Carline regularly wondered why so many corporate clients waited so long to seek professional advice. “I was often thinking, ‘if you had talked to me earlier, we could have avoided this problem,’” he tells Vanguard in March. The past seven years, Carline hasn’t had to be so reactive, […]

Rob McCulloch – WestJet

Nobody likes flight disruptions, but they’re inevitable. And the people who may hate disruptions the most are those in charge of the airlines, explains Rob McCulloch, a member of the Calgary-based WestJet legal staff since 2013 and, since last year, director of legal in support of nine business units at Canada’s second-largest carrier. One delay […]

Antoinette Currie – Global Contact Services

It’s a simple, almost quaint, notion in an age of email barrages, obsessive phone checking and video and teleconferencing: face to face interaction. Yet Antoinette Currie makes a point to do this every day with her staff—and the general counsel and vice president of human resources for Global Contact Services, in turn, has the opportunity […]

Michael Sauer – MERRILL Technologies Group

Mike Sauer has never strayed far from home, yet a small move has made a huge difference in his professional life. “I have one client, and instead of being just a lawyer, I play a role in the execution of the business of the company,” he says about serving as executive vice president and chief […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
