Travis Boghetich – Centurion American Development Group

The Collin Creek Mall had seen better days, though its demise in 2019 was hardly unique. Across the United States and Canada, once-thriving shopping centers gasp for economic breath as anchor tenants plunge into Chapter 11 and online shoppers bypass brick and mortar. So, deep in the heart of Plano, Texas, the once hustling and […]

Tiffany Sams – IHI E&C International

The energy industry being cyclical, demand has been down for liquid natural gas, but the brass at Kinder Morgan Inc. figures it will rebound. When it does, the Houston energy infrastructure company is positioned to take advantage with the newly completed retrofit of its LNG import facility near Savannah, Georgia. It’s called the Elba Liquefaction […]

Tyler Grim – Pantheon Global Holdings

They’re in it for the long haul, knowing full well this will be a slow and likely frustrating process with claims, counterclaims and then some. But it’s this principled approach as well as sound business practice, the general counsel of Pantheon Global Holdings emphasizes during a lively interview with Vanguard this past September. A precedent […]

Ted Prouty – Air Liquide

You wouldn’t know it, but if you’re sitting down with a glass of wine while chatting or texting on a cell phone, Ted Prouty’s work is helping make that possible. As Air Liquide’s Associate General Counsel–U.S., Prouty helps manage the risk and oversee the transactions that procure the Air Liquide gases that are components in […]

Travis Cutright – City of Mesa

It’s not Tokyo or New York, but for Chief Information Officer Travis Cutright, the IT amenities currently being rolled out in Mesa, Arizona—the 35th largest city in the U.S.—are as cutting-edge as they come. There’s a mobile app that allows users to access and pay their utility bills from anywhere, high-speed networks in neighborhoods where […]

Tonya Johannsen – The Beck Group

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and the 490,000-square-foot Dickie’s Arena in Fort Worth is a towering testament to that refrain. Inspired by the multi-use fieldhouses popular in the early- to mid-20th century, the brick-bound building appears at once well-worn and cutting-edge—fitting for a region that represents both. And yet, the 14,000-seat arena somehow feels […]

Tracy Preston – Neiman Marcus Group Inc.

With much credit due to its thriving online operation, Neiman Marcus seems to be tackling challenges in retail by pioneering new frontiers into the digital world. Recently achieving back-to-back profitable quarters has set the luxury retailer on a course for positive growth it hasn’t seen since 2015. In her office at the Dallas headquarters, General […]

Tony Trevino – Lewis Energy Group L.P.

When representatives of Lewis Energy Group visit landowners of potential gas extraction sites, they often give the following reassurance: “We’re not going anywhere.” In an industry filled with fly-by-night operations trying to make a quick buck, those words make a difference. Tony Trevino, general counsel for LEG, knows this. He’s been in the Texas energy […]

Tina R. Patel – Irving Independent School District

Ask Tina R. Patel who her clients are and she’ll tell you “the kids,” all 35,000 of them. Then, she’ll pause, take a breath, and list all her other clients: the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Jose L. Parra; the board of trustees, the campus principals, the teachers and the executive cabinet. Patel is the chief […]

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.
