Ty Patton – McCurdy Auction LLC

If you were to bet on how many attorneys double as auctioneers, what would be the number? A few dozen? Is it in the hundreds? As both general counsel and auctioneer for McCurdy Auction LLC of Wichita, Kansas, Ty Patton thinks he may be the only one—at least for a little longer. As he chatted […]

Tod Reichert – OFS Capital Management LLC

Once an actor, stuntman and theatrical producer, Tod Reichert traded the grind of auditions and eight performances a week for a legal career that’s brought him to OFS Capital Management LLC as its managing director, chief administrative officer and general counsel. And yet, as a legal and operations leader for a fast-paced, high-growth asset management firm, much of Reichert’s work continues […]

Thomas Lynch – Fortive

He’s always looking for broader responsibilities—and to learn new things. Not necessarily with a larger company; just one involved in healthcare, an industry to which Thomas Lynch feels the most personal connection. One of eight children born to a doctor father and a nurse mother, he and the others all pursued careers with some connection […]

Trey Humphrey – Lockton Inc.

It’s quite the rarity, Trey Humphrey says, for a large insurance brokerage to still be family owned, particularly one with an expanding global footprint at such an uncertain time for the industry. Just how much more of a risk, he is asked, will climate change, wildfires, catastrophic weather and rising oceans become to Kansas City-based […]

Tajanae Mallett – Arjo Inc.

Tajanae Mallett remembers the moment when her life and career collided. As she stood inside a rehabilitation center where her mother was recovering from hip-replacement surgery, Mallett looked around the room and all of its contents—spacious, comfortable, replete with bells and whistles—and noticed something that landed like a revelation: there were products manufactured by her […]

Tracy Jacobson – Elite Dental Partners

Dentists nearing retirement—or those who don’t want to handle the headaches associated with owning a small business—have something to smile about. Business at Chicago-based Elite Dental Partners, a five-year-old dental service organization, is on the rise, according to its Chief Legal Officer Tracy Jacobson. Buying more than 90 dental practices nationwide in the past two […]

Trisha Cole – Medtelligent

In late 2017, just as health care tech company Medtelligent was preparing to implement a new sales model—one that emphasized cold calling potential customers, most of them in the assisted living space—Trisha Cole launched a crusade. Well, in a manner of speaking. Convinced such an approach would hinder the company in the long run, Cole […]

Thomas Ting – Starkey Hearing Technologies

In 1983, Ronald Regan became the first president to wear a hearing aid on TV. Less historic perhaps than authorizing a moon landing or ending a war, his decision nevertheless removed much of the stigma around hearing aids as being unsightly and a sign of frailty. Shortly after, hearing aid sales shot up, and Starkey […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
