Robin Ricketts – Lockheed Martin Space

For Robin Ricketts, there’s nothing quite like sitting at the console of mission control during a space launch. There’s the countdown, then the call for the ignition, and finally the sonic rumble in her bones as the engines erupt and the rocket flies into the stratosphere, leaving a billowing contrail of water vapor in its […]

Regina McGregor – Cannistraro

In 1963, John Cannistraro had $1,500 in his pocket and his wife Rita’s support. He needed both to open a small plumbing shop in Boston, Massachusetts. More than a half a century later, his family-owned business has become one of the state’s largest providers of industrial mechanical construction solutions, from plumbing and construction to 3D […]

Rachel Clancy – Lobar Inc.

As spring comes to northwestern Pennsylvania, a walk in the woods at Sinnemahoning State Park in Cameron County is an invigorating way to celebrate the change of seasons. Then, visitors can pop into the Wildlife Center to learn more about the eagles, bears and elk inhabiting the park. As one of many public sector construction […]

Ross Epstein – NFP

From the time he could barely see over the counter at his father’s hardware store in New Jersey, Ross Epstein remembers working with customers, learning the joys and pains of running a small business. Years later, Epstein is still taking these lessons to heart, channeling his father Allan’s approach at New York City-based NFP—a national […]

Richard Trumka Jr. – U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Economic and Consumer Policy Subcommittee

While it can be an uphill endeavor, at least there’s job security when one opts for a career in consumer protection, Richard Trumka Jr. tells Vanguard with what sounds like a battle-scarred chuckle. The work goes on and on … and on. “There’s always some company taking advantage of the consumer,” says the 36-year-old general […]

Rishi Nangia – Sparkfund

After he graduated with degrees in biology and psychology from George Washington University—and with a master’s in public health focusing on epidemiology from Emory University—Rishi Nangia took the next logical step: he applied to medical schools. Except something happened before one of his medical school interviews. “I didn’t think I fit in with everyone else […]

Rachel Bays – Honeywell Aerospace Licensing and Working Capital

From the legal arguments that led to successful appeals of death penalty cases in Missouri, to the export and licensing of aerospace technology, Rachel Bays has researched a lot of laws. But while she’s great at hitting the books, Bays, an assistant general counsel for Honeywell Aerospace’s Licensing and Working Capital unit, likes to see […]

Rich Kent – Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies

From classroom tech to top-secret aviation projects, there are few industries that global engineering giant Honeywell doesn’t touch. If you’re an in-house counsel there, you can spend half a lifetime working your way through the business divisions. While Rich Kent may not have expected to make that journey, he’s on the path after 15 years […]

Rich Suminski – TE Connectivity

When your company goes from being part of a global conglomerate to a spin-off, it’s not always a great story. That might’ve seemed the case with the collapse of Tyco—at the time, one of the world’s biggest corporations, with 240,000 employees—shocking shareholders and the US economy. The CEO, CFO and board resigned, the stock plummeted and […]

Rebecca Stump – SEI Private Trust Company

While working as an attorney, Rebecca Stump and her husband decided to enter the real estate business on the side by purchasing a multi-unit building. After becoming a mom she and her husband decided to expand the business. It proved to be a bit of a three-ring circus, she says, juggling and responding to the […]

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.
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.
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.
