Hans J. Hutterer – FINSA

It’s pretty simple. One violation of FINSA’s new anti-corruption policy and you are out. Forever. Bribery. Robbery. Drug trafficking. There is no shortage of crime in the countries where FINSA operates, and technology is allowing people to become more creative in their methods of deception. But as political instability rises and democracies crumble, countries and […]

Luis Gerardo Ramirez Villela – Müggenburg, Gorches y Peñalosa S.C.

Say a law firm is asked by a client to pursue an intellectual property (IP) case, despite having no IP staff to speak of. In the past, the firm would have to devote extensive crash-course resources to researching the issue internally—or more costly still, use outside counsel. Now, with just a few key words—“intellectual property […]

Javier Oroz Coppel – AXA México

“A System of Lessons Learned” is how Javier Oroz Coppel refers to the repository that he and his in-house team are compiling of the judicial rulings and case law that AXA México has dealt with in recent years. Whatever the outcome is in a case, there’s always something to be learned, he reminds from the […]

Alejandro Fernandez Ramirez-Buendia – Cotemar

He joined the legal department of Cotemar, Mexico’s dominant oilfields services provider, at a most challenging time in 2013, when petroleum prices were at a low. The situation wasn’t much better three years later, when Alejandro Fernandez Ramirez-Buendia was promoted to head of legal and general counsel, but much of the reason for his hiring […]

Daniel Perez-Cirera – Samsung Mexico

Daniel Perez-Cirera rarely feels nervous anymore. Nervous was going to bed Sunday night ahead of another 80-hour workweek, or flying to Finland for that first meeting at Nokia headquarters. As he walks once again into the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) in Mexico City, Perez-Cirera isn’t gripped with doubts. But he’s aware of the […]

Aldo Escalante – Grupo Financiero BASE

Just a little over 30 years old as a financial institution—and only seven of those as a validated bank—Grupo Financiero BASE is downright young when it comes to the banking industry: Its competitors and contemporaries have many more decades, very often centuries, of experience behind them. But youth also means there is ample opportunity for […]

Jose Eduardo Salgado Villegas – Capgemini

Jose Eduardo Salgado knows the deadline. It’s been marked on his mental calendar for months, circled in red so many times he could stretch the line out and measure the height of his ceiling. December 1, 2018: the day his debut novel—800-plus pages and more than a decade in the making—will finally be finished. Blending […]

Hector Izzo – SUEZ Mexico

Once completed, it will pump out more than a hundred million gallons of clean, potable water a day. The largest of its kind in the Americas, the planned water desalination plant in Playas de Rosarito, Mexico, has widespread implications for the community, the country, the continent—and the world at large. And Hector Izzo is right […]

Nicolás Villarreal – Grupo Proeza

You can learn a lot about someone from their LinkedIn page. Not just their core strengths and various alma maters, but how their career path foreshadows where they might be headed next. When one scans Nicolás Villarreal’s page, two things are immediately clear: He sees no need for a profile picture, and the three logos […]

Jaime Orvañanos – WeWork

Whenever Jaime Orvañanos visits one of his company’s far-flung offices, he always takes time to look around. Throughout the space, he sees architects and graphic designers, writers and engineers. Some work collaboratively; others on their own. The verve seems contagious; the air alive with ideas. Then it’s off to the next city, to Buenos Aires […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
