Jennifer Rote – TGI Fridays

Est. reading time: 5 mins

There’s been a change in the leadership at TGI Fridays, the casual dining chain transforming the brand and wanting its franchisees to share a common vision with headquarters. While most have been comfortable with the new approach, a few have opted to depart the chain and, at last count, the mothership has bought back five. […]

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It seemed like an ordinary assignment for crews at Oncor Electric Delivery Co. LLC. Trees outside a customer’s home were growing into the path of the wires and they needed to be trimmed back. Then, the crew discovered the homeowner perched in the tree to prevent trimming. She wasn’t budging. So, Vice President for Litigation […]

Jaimes Sher – IP Excellence

Est. reading time: 5 mins

A 2019 report by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute concluded the average commuter wastes 54 hours per year in traffic delays—more than a weekend, if you count the hours spent sleeping. Jaimes Sher knows all about this. For decades, he had the same routine. His alarm would go off, he’d shower, get dressed, and rush […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

They aren’t looking over their shoulders, but construction crews at the various operating companies under Centuri Group Inc. are getting accustomed to seeing Jason Wilcock checking out the jobsite conditions, getting to know people and troubleshooting, if need be. As the company’s executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, Wilcock could easily stay put […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Raised by a single mother in a blue-collar family in South Philadelphia, Joe Fox recalls having numerous close relatives who were active with labor unions, including the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the International Garment Workers Union. He jokes that, “In one way, it was sort of like a family business.” And he shares this […]

Jim Potts – RateGenius

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It would be an overstatement to say this year has been the best and worst of times for the nation’s leading refinancer of auto loans. Suffice it to say there are opportunities and obstacles facing RateGenius, as COVID-19 puts twists and turns in what had been a fairly smooth road. The number of consumers interested […]

James M. Fisher II and Kevin E. Broyles – FisherBroyles

Est. reading time: 6 mins

Quite the jump the FisherBroyles law firm had on the competition as far as remote operations are concerned. Its widely distributed 265-plus lawyers and support staff haven’t reported to an office since 2002, when founders and managing partners James M. Fisher II and Kevin E. Broyles deemed a physical facility dispensable. No need for lavish […]

Jared Sine — Match Group

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Imagine, after months of enduring COVID-19-induced cabin fever, the restrictions are lifted. It’s time to get back out and socialize. After scrolling through a few profiles, you and a match make plans to connect for a fresh-squeezed juice. When you finally meet him, however, the vibe is all wrong. Something about him seems off, and […]

Jeffrey Simmons – GlobalTranz

Est. reading time: 5 mins

A pandemic notwithstanding, consumer goods must still be delivered by the big rigs and railroads, and some entity has got to manage the logistics for around 25,000 corporate customers throughout North America. Scottsdale, Arizona-based GlobalTranz remains open for business as a cloud-based enabler of the national supply chain. Kind of an Expedia for freight, it […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
