Charles Corbin – Hilton Grand Vacations

When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in early 2020, leisure travel came to a near stop. Essential travel continued, but vacations were canceled, and plans were postponed indefinitely. Charles Corbin had never seen anything like it, even during hurricane season. He watched—and helped—as Hilton Grand Vacations temporarily closed its timeshare properties for the safety of staff […]

Darryl Lewis – Universal Insurance Holdings Inc.

Mind-boggling as the statistic may sound—74 percent of the nation’s property and casualty litigation being in Florida—it’s not that hard to fathom.

Eric Banta – Voya

Eric Banta fell in love with Colorado as a young man, drawn to the mountains, the skiing and the climate as a backdrop to his studies.

Katie Helton – Jack Cooper Investments

It’s a tradition nearly a century old. New vehicles roll off an assembly line with a sparkle and a new car smell, and Jack Cooper’s team hauls them to dealers or drop lots before they end up in someone’s driveway. Founded in 1928 to haul General Motors vehicles from an assembly plant in the Leeds […]

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.
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.
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.
