Paul Saltzman – EagleBank

Advising any financial institution from a legal perspective calls for in-depth knowledge and a cool head, which is why Paul Saltzman got a call from EagleBank in January 2020. An attorney noted for straightening out some of the most sensitive banking issues, he could help his new employer stay on its productive path. And as […]

Peter Betaneli – ETS

Most people have memories of taking a standardized test. While hours used to be spent filling in bubbles with No. 2 pencils, tests are now taken on computers. Regardless of how they’re administered, though, the tests are known for being a challenging yet necessary step forward in one’s education or career. ETS, which has been […]

Pedro J. Lopez-Baldrich – SharkNinja

Consumers—those of us needing to keep a clean house and functional, simplified kitchen—may associate the SharkNinja brand with everyday chores made easier, everything from robotics and cordless vacuums to preparing food with devices like blenders and multi-cooker appliances. Pedro J. Lopez-Baldrich, the company’s chief legal officer and executive vice president, doesn’t merely see the utility […]

Paul Uhrig – Bassett Healthcare Network

Compared to working at a startup, being part of a new leadership team at a 100-year-old institution may seem breezy. But there’s a lot to consider—the history and reputation, the staff (some of whom have been there for decades) and the long-standing practices and procedures. But there’s also a benefit to new ways of thinking, […]

Philly Shipyard – Dean Grabelle

In the spring of 2019 operations at the Philly Shipyard were looking bleak. A lack of contracts had idled production and the workforce had been slashed from 1,200 down to around 80, says Dean Grabelle. But Grabelle had hope. After laboring over proposals for months as Philly Shipyard’s senior vice president and general counsel, word […]

Pierre-Etienne Boin – Inari

Drive across parts of the U.S. heartland—in the open spaces between the cities and towns—and you’ll be met with oceans of corn, soybeans and other commoditized food crops stretching in every direction. It’s a big money business—one of the biggest, in fact. Agriculture contributed $1.09 trillion to the U.S. GDP in 2019—more than five percent […]

Peter Mastrostefano – PUMA Group

When his parents bought him his first pair of white and blue PUMA suede sneakers with the trademark leaping cat logo on the tongue and heel of the shoes, Peter Mastrostefano was just eight years old. He never imagined that he’d one day become the senior vice president and general counsel for the North American […]

Philippe Claude – Mars Wrigley Confectionery

As the checkout conveyor lurches forward, bringing your groceries along for the ride, you decide to treat yourself to a Snickers bar from the aisle’s candy display. It’s always been your favorite, after all. “No need to throw it in a bag,” you tell the cashier. “This’ll be gone by the time I pull in […]

Peggy Barber – IACCM

They’ve existed since at least 2,300 BCE, with records from ancient Mesopotamia highlighting everything from marriage and mortgages to adoptions and bankruptcy. Without them, there would be no civilization, let alone markets or governments. And yet, these documents have become so fundamental to the human experience (and the daily lives of lawyers) that their importance […]

Philipp Kaeferle – NEST

It’s a billion-dollar-plus industry, facilities maintenance and management, and NEST has been garnering an incrementally bigger piece of the turf since the company’s 1994 founding in Gloucester City, New Jersey, just across the Walt Whitman Bridge from Philadelphia. “No marquee projects like a big bridge,” Philipp Kaeferle, NEST’s congenial general counsel, tells Vanguard in late […]

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.
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.
