Jason Hale – Lee Company

When Tennessee Governor Bill Lee was elected in 2018, it marked a time of transition for Franklin-based Lee Company. The family-owned construction firm with deep community roots was poised for change, given this milestone. Stepping in as Lee Company’s first general counsel in 2017, on the eve of the election, was Jason Hale. Growing up […]

Dionne Tunstall Jenkins – Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools

Dionne Tunstall Jenkins has never been far from a classroom. Not in her role as general counsel for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. Not when she used to visit her father’s classrooms during summer breaks, and certainly not when she established her own classroom at home with old textbooks and a blackboard and taught her stuffed animals. […]

Loretta Cecil – Change Healthcare Inc.

As she helps Change Healthcare inspire a better healthcare system, General Counsel Loretta Cecil is also guiding its new approach to addressing legal and compliance issues. Conventional models for public companies separate the legal and compliance teams. However, when Change Healthcare was created in 2017, Cecil insisted on following her vision of a single organization […]

Ed Phillips – Mon Health

Nothing fills the heart of Ed Phillips like seeing a mother cradle her newborn or watching a patient successfully work a new set of crutches after a hospital stay. Both instances, he says, show elements of renewal and healing, what Mon Health is all about. His introduction to hospitals traces back to his rough ‘n’ […]

Matt DePasquale – Nationwide Title Clearing

It was “Mrs. Doubtfire” that did it. Not in the best of moods one afternoon, young Matt DePasquale got home from school, plopped on the couch and switched on the TV. The 1993 comedy classic happened to be on, and when DePasquale saw Robin Williams hamming it up as the eponymous nanny in disguise, his […]

Steve Heinrichs – Mueller Water Products

When we turn on the faucet, we expect water to come out. It’s something that we—in much of North America, at least—don’t even think about; in fact, we take it for granted. And when that water does come out, there’s a good chance that it was delivered somewhere along the way by a Mueller Water Products valve, hydrant or other essential piece of infrastructure, notes Steve Heinrichs. Dating to […]

Nate Mark – RedSail Technologies LLC

It could have been a cruel twist of fate when Nate Mark’s desire to pursue something different in his legal career left him with nothing to pursue at all. Looking to bring his expertise to the tech field and having multiple opportunities in the works, Mark accepted a severance package as his former employer restructured […]

Angie Soety – American Management Services

It was Angie Soety’s plan when she stepped in as general counsel: get American Management Services as digitized and automated as possible to meet the demands—and expectations—of the 21st century. And then, COVID-19 hit. “It put everything on fast forward,” she says. The pandemic forced the Orlando business management consulting firm to not only implement, but fully embrace, […]

Matt Cameron – Akumin Inc.

No one looks forward to getting an MRI. But Matt Cameron wants people to know that this stress-inducing procedure is not only easier than ever; it’s also becoming more and more convenient to schedule and undergo. That’s the premise behind Akumin Inc., where Cameron serves as the general counsel and senior vice president, leading the […]

Robert W. “Robbie” Kamerschen – Aaron’s Inc.

After weeks of near-incessant racket, that clunking noise in the refrigerator finally stopped. Unfortunately, so did the refrigerator. On a hot summer day, there’s little time to find a replacement, and with a pandemic hitting everyone’s wallet, there’s no cash to buy a new one. For many people, it’s a squeeze that’s all too familiar, […]

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.
