Liz Bartlett – Independent Care Health Plan

If you are a Wisconsin resident who’s fallen on hard times due to health issues, your whole world might fall apart. If you’re late with the rent, you could even face eviction—which could hurt your health even further. But through Milwaukee-based Independent Care Health Plan “iCare”—now a wholly owned subsidiary of Humana Inc.—innovative programs are […]

David A. Hitchens – JLL

David A. Hitchens has been through industry downturns before, having joined the legal staff of JLL in the midst of the Great Recession. By revenue, the Chicago-based JLL is the world’s second largest commercial real estate company, and its properties endured higher vacancies and lower leases as so many industries cut back between 2007 and […]

Brandon Fairless – CHS Therapy & Rehab

Brandon Fairless remembers a teambuilding exercise in his first two weeks at CHS Therapy & Rehab. The CEO asked her executive team: “What do you rebel against?” For Fairless, the answer was easy. It was complacency. Since his arrival five months ago at the post-acute therapy organization, he has gotten to work as its first […]

Krishna Walker – CareVet

They’re among the last bastion of independent businesses in the U.S., providing care for four-legged, furry family members in cities, towns and regions large and small. The American Veterinary Medical Association estimated in a 2017 report that of the 28,000 to 32,000 veterinary practices in the U.S., about 3,500 are owned by larger companies. However, […]

John Kahle – Kimball Electronics

In normal times, a manufacturer that made electronic medical assemblies for respiratory care products would go about its business as usual. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, these aren’t normal times. Along with the rest of the world, Kimball Electronics—a global company which makes everything from respiratory care devices and vehicle navigation systems to semiconductor power […]

Lisa Gasbarre Black – Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland

Being evicted, unemployed, or left hungry are what some Ohio residents faced in the wake of COVID-19. Here to combat the plight of the downtrodden, however, is Catholic Charities Diocese of Cleveland. Founded in 1912, the nonprofit charitable organization in recent times delivered more than 150 services at 60 locations to more than 400,000 individuals […]

Erica Powell Bell – Mobex Global

While growing up in Alabama and learning in her elementary class about the state’s troubled history related to slavery, segregation and civil rights, Erica Powell Bell figured it out. She knew what she wanted to do. “I told myself I wanted to do something that ensured that those types of atrocities, like slavery and Jim […]

Steven Tourek – The Marvin Companies Inc.

At first glance, Warroad, which sits on the shore of Lake of the Woods in the northernmost reaches of Minnesota, appears to be more a haven for hunting, fishing and boating than the site of large-scale manufacturing. The city, population 1,781, is minutes from Canada and miles from anything resembling a metropolis. Yet among the […]

Andrea Andre – Axcess Financial

Consumers beware: COVID-19 has unleashed scam artists preying upon the most economically vulnerable. A couple of federal stimulus checks notwithstanding, many people of modest means remain hard-pressed to scrape together their next rent, car payment, credit card bill or whatever. It’s all the more reason why Andrea Andre is so committed to uphold trust in […]

Jasmine Kingsley – Hudl

How do you find the next international soccer superstar—like a Messi—and then share your find with scouts around the world? These days, the answer may lie with the video and data analytics products developed by Lincoln, Nebraska-based Hudl, says Senior Vice President of Legal and People and General Counsel Jasmine Kingsley. Whether an undiscovered athlete […]

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.
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.
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.
