Logan Maley – Procore

She relishes the role of an in-house lawyer for reasons that include the flexibility to work from home, if need be. Not that the to-do list is any shorter there for Logan Maley. On the contrary as she juggles new motherhood with her fast-paced job. “I still put in just as many hours as I […]

Peter Steckelman – Tennis Channel

The first time Peter Steckelman walked into a crowded broadcast booth only to find tennis greats Martina Navratilova and Jim Courier, he broke out in an instant sweat and was at a loss for words. “I could only think ‘Oh my God, don’t screw this up … and don’t stutter and don’t look stupid!’” says Steckelman, a self-proclaimed tennis junkie who […]

Holmes Lilley – Chartwell Staffing Solutions

When Holmes Lilley became executive vice president and general counsel at Chartwell Staffing Solutions in 2016, after “the longest job interview of my life,” he inherited a department that was spending well into seven figures on legal expenses. Even for a $350 million company, Lilley knew such outlays were unsustainable. Through a combination of tech […]

Lisa Gazley – 20th Century Fox

She’s not a lawyer, but Lisa Gazley just might have a resume and professional responsibilities that would be the envy of many who have that juris doctorate on their wall—in addition to law school debt that they’ll be paying off for a long time. Meanwhile the personable Gazley continues to have a front-row seat as […]

Jenny Wang – MerchSource/ThreeSixty Group

For generations of kids and kids-at-heart, the name conjures up instant memories of giant plush bears and light-up keyboards played with dancing feet—Tom Hanks’ iconic scene in “Big” foremost among them. So, when iconic toymaker FAO Schwarz launched a new flagship retail space in Rockefeller Plaza this past November, three years after closing its original […]

Jason Romrell – LeadsMarket.com

It’s a disturbing fact of economic life that approximately 40 percent of adults can’t cover a $400 emergency without selling property or taking out a loan, 30 percent have poor or bad credit, and millions more are credit invisible, making it difficult to secure financing. Not impossible, that is. Subprime lenders abound, especially online, willing […]

Brett Tarr – Caesars Entertainment Corporation

Employing 70,000 people and operating 55 casinos around the world, along with dozens of accompanying hotels and restaurants, the name of this behemoth is synonymous with nightlife and weekend getaways, as well as a growing presence in interactive virtual reality. Taken together, the legal landscape of Caesars Entertainment Corporation (CEC)—a $4.5 billon enterprise so dynamic […]

Richard Patti – Live Nation Entertainment

He figures that a million lawyers would gladly step into his position, and if Richard Patti weren’t the senior vice president and associate general counsel of Live Nation Entertainment, he, too, would be most envious of whoever held that plum. After all, opportunities do arise for him to mingle with A-List celebs, the progressive corporate […]

Kamili Moreland – AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah

Flat tire? Dead battery? Overheated engine? Need a tow? Been in an accident? Just call the number on the card and within an hour’s time, one of AAA’s providers will likely be beside your troubled vehicle. Or maybe your house, if it’s been damaged by fire or falling limbs, and you had the foresight to […]

Jared Hunsaker – Entrata

When he first arrived at Entrata’s cramped corporate headquarters, then located on the dimly lit second floor of a credit union in Salt Lake City’s outskirts, Jared Hunsaker—the company’s sixtieth hire—had to share his cubicle with another coworker. Today, the seasoned general counsel is one of more than 1,600 employees. Meanwhile, the company’s revenue has […]

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.
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.
