Gordon Kushner – ECi Software Solutions

A product of the western Canadian province of Alberta, Gordon Kushner can’t help but think in hockey terms when discussing his role as general counsel, senior vice president and secretary at ECi Software Solutions in Fort Worth, Texas. “It’s like being the corporate world’s equivalent of the center iceman,” he says in reference to the […]

Charlotte Scaglione – DEPCOM Power

If your employer cracked the top five of “Inc.” magazine’s list of the 500 fastest-growing private companies in America, chances are your first thought would be to run straight for the “emergency” champagne bottle inside the break room refrigerator. Charlotte Scaglione’s mind went somewhere a bit different: We’re going to need more contract templates. “The […]

Carolyn Shellman – CPS Energy

Back in March, while attending the 2019 DFW Auto Show in Dallas, Carolyn Shellman kept noticing clusters of onlookers gathered around a few specific cars. Each time she wove her way through the crowd to see what all the fuss was about, the object of attention was the same. Not a souped-up Ferrari or the […]

Jason Nield – CECO Environmental Corporation

With his new employer bolstered by world-class engineers, there seemed no shortage of innovation potential when Jason “Jay” Nield came aboard in early 2018. But all that intellectual property at CECO Environmental Corp. sure needed to be duly tended, the British-born Nield recalls during a lively chat with Vanguard in February. He’d be just the […]

Stephen L. Polozola – Urban Air Adventure Park

Stephen L. Polozola’s wife used to tell him how happy he seemed upon changing careers, but he hasn’t heard that for quite a while. Maybe not since last year when he became the full-time general counsel and executive vice president at Urban Air Adventure Park’s headquarters in Bedford, Texas. A much distinguished construction and real […]

John Vardaman – Hypur

From the black swivel chairs to the gaggle of suits across the long wooden table, the conference room looks a lot like those John Vardaman frequented during his days as an assistant deputy chief at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Only this time, his audience isn’t fellow lawyers, but bank executives eager to learn […]

Andrew Chen – Vyopta

Specializing in enterprise solutions and business analytics, with a unified communications (UC) management platform that’s become a bona-fide best-in-class, Vyopta’s clientele is a who’s-who of Fortune companies: Astrazeneca, Comcast, UPS, the list goes on. And yet, with $6 million on the line—a drop in the bucket for any of these enterprises—Vyopta’s general counsel and co-founder, […]

David Rose – ProPath

It’s called PAMA, as in the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, but may entail unintended consequences. For while the 2014 law seeks to prevent cuts to the federal insurance program for senior citizens and some of the disabled, it means lower reimbursement rates for some of the most cost-efficient clinics so necessary in […]

Kathryn Holt Richardson – HR Legal Search

Could be mom tampered with that fortune cookie. Not that she’d ever so admit. But if she did, her daughter just might give her the biggest of hugs. For as Kathy Richardson explains, her initial inclination was to be a career counselor, something she was finding time to do even while majoring in international affairs […]

Ozer Teitelbaum – TnT IP

Like the literal universe, the cosmos of intellectual property is expanding, only there’s still plenty of room for collision as companies jockey to acquire, manage and protect intellectual property. So it pays to get guidance both on a legal and science front. That’s a rare two-fer, but for the past three years a slew of […]

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.
