Marty Lorenzo – Petco

Like the Marine he is, Marty Lorenzo is on a mission to support Petco’s legal team by fostering committed troops. The goal? To serve “pet parents” throughout the country—and help them better care for their beloved animals. Lorenzo, an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps with 31 years of service, has served as Petco’s vice […]

Craig Levine – WASH Multifamily Laundry Systems

Doing laundry is one of life’s necessities. Carrying a handful of quarters around with you—not so much. Online mobile payment apps are helping to change the status quo by eliminating the need for credit and debit cards, in turn making handfuls of quarters (for laundry at least) a thing of the past. Craig Levine is […]

Brandee Winikoff – Rodan + Fields

Scrolling through the company’s website, the wares that make up Rodan + Fields’ product line—everything from serums and acne lines to anti-aging products and masks—look like any you might find at a high-end department store. The branding is straightforward, too: streamlined, simple, unabashedly confident. They certainly don’t seem like the kinds of products that would […]

Virginia MacSuibhne – Roche Molecular Solutions

Those who know Virginia MacSuibhne understand that she always finds a way—personally or professionally—to get something done. Despite suffering from endometriosis and Hashimoto’s Disease for years—undergoing seven abdominal surgeries in recent memory, missing a kidney and living with chronic pelvic pain—this high-powered attorney at Roche Molecular Solutions says she’s all about finding a solution—and the […]

Lauren Curtin – LifeVantage Corporation

She may have been the type of younger sister whose siblings came to appreciate her only belatedly. “I was always the rule follower,” Lauren Curtin tells Vanguard with a laugh. “When my brothers would get into trouble I’d tell them ‘You can’t do that! Rules exist for a reason!’ That was me: the enforcer.” She […]

Joe Moschella – Jukin Media Inc.

Sadder but wiser? Well Tori Locklear never seemed that devastated—just bemused—back in 2012 when the then-precocious 13-year-old attempted an online hair-care tutorial and accidentally burned off much of the right side of her locks with a curling wand. Seven years and more than 52 million views later, Locklear continues to take it in the best […]

Mark DeVitre – Entertainment Studios/Allen Media Group

While societal divisiveness is alive and well in cable television, there’s at least one notable exception—The Weather Channel. The Pentagon has a direct and very secure line with the network. Airports rely upon TWC, as do municipalities prone to anything from heat waves to floods to hurricanes to blizzards. National surveys show the network is […]

Dick Garlish – Peak Reliability

He’ll likely be the man who essentially turns out the lights when the energy company that’s employed him since April 2017 goes dark for good. His job is due to be extinguished in the process, making this one of the least pleasant tasks that Dick Garlish has had to execute as an in-house lawyer at […]

Edward Burns – Wheel Pros

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but the extent to which some people go to imitate someone else’s patented products can have Edward Burns shaking his head. Automotive wheels are not easy items to infringe upon, he remarks. Especially when they are big, molded and branded with recognized names, and usually sold four […]

Michael Kauffman – Tech DNA

Imagine this: After months of market analysis, your company has finally separated contenders from pretenders and found its acquisition target: a plucky Silicon Valley startup with a game-changing machine learning technology platform. Later that day, you see a story on CNN about one of your competitors being fined hundreds of millions of dollars for violating […]

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.
