Michael MacDougall – EMD Serono

There are nearly one million people living with multiple sclerosis in the U.S. That’s about the same as the number of people living in Austin, Texas, the 11th largest city in the country. It is an unpredictable disease that strikes women two or three times more often than men. The progress, severity and symptoms affect […]

Matthew Gilbert – SGS North America Inc.

From a bird’s eye view, the body of water below not only looks safe; it looks inviting. Winging south on a migratory path from the wilds of western Canada, the waterfowl is ready to land on a pond when it flies past a sensor that sets off an air cannon. Startled, the bird flees. Whatever […]

Melissa Bert – U.S. Coast Guard

Melissa Bert’s new role requires leadership and perseverance through stormy seas—two values that have been fine-tuned throughout her career. As a U.S. Coast Guard rear admiral whose past posts include southeast Alaska, Miami and Washington, D.C., Bert has earned her sea legs. Even so, upon assuming her duties as judge advocate general and chief counsel, […]

Melissa Sellers – The Hershey Company

“Gimme a break, gimme a break. Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar! It’s an iconic jingle for an iconic American candy, and almost everyone knows that chocolate covered wafer—just like they know Hershey’s Kisses, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Twizzlers candy. What they don’t know: how to market those products, manufacture […]

Marc Battle – DC Water

Water is life and make no mistake: Neither the COVID-19 pandemic nor massive protests for racial and social justice will interrupt its flow to Washington, D.C. People from all walks of life will have what they need to drink and bathe, says DC Water’s Marc Battle, the chief legal officer and executive vice president, government […]

Malik Majeed — PRWT Services Inc. and U.S. Facilities Inc.

One of the things Malik Majeed loves hearing from employees, both past and present, is that PRWT Services Inc. “feels like family.” For Majeed, the president, CEO and general counsel for two Philadelphia-based companies—PRWT Services Inc. (PRWT) and its wholly owned subsidiary, U.S. Facilities Inc. (USF)—it’s a sentiment that’s both heartwarming and validating. One of […]

Mitch Bompey – Addepar

In the world of investment, tracking the performance of a portfolio can be one of the biggest challenges to managing it. Markets fluctuate, interest rates change, earnings reports ebb and flow and information abounds. Aggregation tools are essential for independent wealth advisers, but the data filling those graphs and pie charts, such as share prices […]

Moses Vargas – Connecticut Children’s Medical Center

It’s been a long journey for Moses Vargas, from doing missionary work in Guatemalan villages where paved roads were rare to living and working in one of New England’s largest cities. Along the way, he endured more than his fair share of challenges, before finding a new career calling—one that  gave him the chance to […]

Michael Fralin — Somera Road Inc.

It’s a strategy that involves far more than one-note purchases, you could say about the business plan of New York-based Somera Road Inc. and it’s making some sweet music for its investors. It was an approach that began with Somera Road focusing on distressed commercial building loans and properties from the 2008 recession, then expanded […]

Michael Sanocki – Volant Trading

When overseeing compliance for a tech-centric financial firm—one with technology forward processes that have yet to be specifically addressed in the rulebooks—understanding the regulatory landscape is paramount. Luckily, Michael Sanocki has scaled that terrain many times before, having served in the Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations Chief Counsel’s Office at the U.S. Securities and […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
