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 […]

Brock Cooper – Veterans United Home Loans

Scrolling through the social media postings on the Veterans United Home Loans page makes Brock Cooper feel good. There, this former member of the Missouri National Guard sees photos of fellow veterans who have become first-time homeowners, including a Navy veteran who finished cancer treatment, a woman in the Air Force and an Army veteran […]

Buren Jones – Indiana Farmers Mutual Insurance Company

It turns out that being a musician and successfully practicing corporate law are not as diametrically opposed as they may seem. When well executed, both require innovation and collaboration, particularly if the companies (or musicians) are looking to grow. So while the career of Buren Jones, vice president and general counsel of Indiana Farmers Mutual […]

Brandie Ekren – Lansing Board of Water & Light

They were once a sight as familiar as a milkman or mail carrier. Someone would pull up in a truck or van outside a building once a month, check the dials and numbers on the electric meter and drive off to their next stop. And while meter readers have yet to go the way of […]

Brian Kirk – ExteNet Systems Inc.

Walk into any large office building in Chicago and it’s easy to assume the space’s signal strength and wireless network will be robust and reliable. That’s why companies pay AT&T and Verizon the big bucks, after all. But with thousands of cellphones gobbling bandwidth, dropped calls and slow connections are far more common than one […]

Brandon James – Gold Medal Products Co.

For nearly 90 years, Gold Medal Products Co. has put the pop into the corn and the hot into the dogs as a manufacturer and vendor of the cookers, poppers, warmers and chillers that prepare the snacks and drinks sold at movie theaters, ballparks and arenas all over the country. Founded and still owned by […]

Brad Riley – 3D Corporate Solutions

Brad Riley has pets—two cats and a dog—and he considers them to be family. These days, we all do. As Riley stresses, once that distinction is made, how we treat and feed our pets becomes a huge consideration. It’s such a consideration for the nearly 70 percent of American pet owners, in fact, that 3D […]

Bob Robinson – RMG Networks

Bob Robinson’s first appointment to a legal role was unceremonious. While an officer in the United States Navy, he once mentioned a passing interest in attending law school. When his commanding officer heard this, he simply handed Robinson the role of legal officer. As he was already an anti-submarine warfare and nuclear weapons officer, the […]

Bella Sanevich – NISA Investment Advisors LLC

Sometimes the old model stops working. Case in point: the retirement savings model Americans relied on for decades. Traditionally, companies provided their employees with defined-benefit pension plans that, if the employee served for a predetermined number of years, would pay the individual some set amount of money for the rest of his or her life. […]

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.
