Promoted in January to lead the legal and policy team for GE Healthcare Pharmaceutical Diagnostics in the Americas, he supports the company’s position in precision diagnostic pharmaceuticals, one of the fastest growing businesses in GE’s portfolio. After 10 […]

Candice Ciresi – Sezzle

It’s a situation all too familiar to many, especially in these times of record unemployment and economic uncertainty: You need to make purchases but can’t afford to. For millions of Americans, coming up short has become a harsh reality. Credit cards have long been an option for increased spending power, but that’s changing with the […]

Cordell Jung – NCS Pearson Inc.

Got to ensure the legitimacy of professional certifications. Someone’s safety might depend on it. So reminds Cordell Jung, senior vice president and general counsel of Assessments, a division of Minnesota-based Pearson. Catching and prosecuting those who cheat on exams or steal intellectual property is among the many roles of his legal team that manages globally […]

Chuki Obiyo – Chuki Law

In 2008, on the precipice of the Great Recession, law schools could be pretty scary places to be. Law firms were laying off associates; law students were piling up debt and facing dubious job prospects; and corporate legal departments were being stretched thin, affecting performance for attorneys just about everywhere. For Chuki Obiyo, being a […]

Corey Perman – R1 RCM

Rules aren’t always to be railed against. Adhering to them can give a company a competitive edge, especially when it stays ahead of the curve. Which is no small feat for a company that manages revenue cycles and provides physician advisory services for some of the nation’s most prominent health care companies. From patient admissions […]

Chad E. Walker – Morton Salt

Even salt, the rudimentary staple, can become stale. That goes not just for the condiment—but the company that sells it, too, says Chad Walker. Brands, like anything else, must be nurtured, says the general counsel and chief compliance officer for the iconic Morton Salt company—you know, the one in the round blue container emblazoned with […]

Charlotte Tart – Intelligent Medical Objects Inc.

As a hobbyist photographer, Charlotte Tart has a keen eye for knowing when things are out of focus—and a knack for bringing them back. In other words: an ideal skill for any modern general counsel, one that quickly came in handy when she joined Chicago area-based health care IT company Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO) in […]

Chris Clancy – Panduit

By all accounts, the acquisition was a perfect fit; a way for Panduit to augment its network infrastructure business with an established audio-visual presence, in the form of AV luminary Atlona. Even the deal itself—a handover completed in 2018, and Panduit’s largest to date—was quick and seamless for the company and its general counsel, Chris […]

Christa Johnson – DHL Global Business Services

Christa Johnson vividly remembers her first human resources class at Cornell University. Taught by her passionate professor Florence Berger, it completely drew her in. Five years after graduation and inspired by an internship at the University of Denver Career Center as part of her masters program, Johnson found herself working in human resources at a […]

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.
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.
