Tim Bradburn – IAMGOLD

There was a time when Tim Bradburn tried to punch his weight as an amateur boxer. “That didn’t turn out so well,” he admits. “But I then discovered I liked the fight in law, and I also wanted to help build things.” That combination has helped Bradburn strike gold as the general counsel for IAMGOLD […]

Kath Hammond – Greater Toronto Airports Authority

In June 2019, the Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship as significant underdogs against the Golden State Warriors, winners of three of the previous five titles. How’d they do it? Having a superstar like Kawhi Leonard didn’t hurt, but Kath Hammond says it was the team’s strong supporting cast that pushed it over the top. […]

Katie Jamieson – Herschel Supply Co.

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

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.

Sue-Lynn Noel – Purolator

By the age of 12, Sue-Lynn Noel knew she wanted to pursue a career in law. Turning that vision into reality was a different story. Not only were there no lawyers in her family; none of them had ever gone to college. It was during a work experience class in high school—an internship at a […]

Melissa Reiter – G Adventures

During this daunting time of a world-wide pandemic, the idea of traveling to Japan to sleep in a Buddhist temple, surfing in Cosa Rica or taking a river tour in France to snack on wine and cheese may feel like a hallucination of the pre-COVID-19 days. But while travel is still possible—albeit restricted in certain […]

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.
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.
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.
