Ricardo Sarmiento – Estrella International Energy Services

Est. reading time: 4 mins

One thing you learn to love about the land is how it never changes. Or anyway it won’t change much in the lifecycle of a drilling rig and its human operators. Here, in the energy industry, the land is as close to a constant as it gets. But people—whether individually or as part of a […]

David Edwards – Heron Wealth

Sixty-six million years ago, an asteroid the size of Manhattan struck Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The impact blasted open a crater 110 miles wide, triggered a tsunami with 500-foot waves and shrouded the planet in dense clouds of acid rain. Within just a few centuries, apex predators like T-Rex and Velociraptor died out. Meanwhile, species of […]

Jack Salzman – Kings Point Capital Management

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When it comes to the finer things in life—a brilliant diamond, a top-shelf glass of scotch—having an “old-school” approach is usually considered a good thing. The term implies a certain reverence for tradition, an air of expertise often lacking in today’s increasingly automated, derivative-driven world. Jack Salzman wonders why wealth management should be any different. […]

David Mayes – Bearing Point Wealth Partners

Est. reading time: 4 mins

It hits you the moment your eldest boards the bus for her first day of middle school. She’ll be off to college in seven years. By the time she’s your age, you and your wife will be eligible for social security. You’ve managed to scrimp and save here and there, but as that bus pulls […]

Dr. Morgan R. Olsen – Arizona State University

The big test for institutions of higher education just might be how to adapt to an era of less financial support from the government and increasing operating costs. Creativity and efficiency seem the campus approach from here, and under the leadership of Dr. Morgan R. Olsen, Arizona State University just might be setting an example […]

Bill Tremko – USI Consulting Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

You can’t call this a mere growth spurt. USI Consulting Group (USICG) has been on a steady—sometimes dramatic—track of expansion for going on 25 years now. And it’s showing no signs of easing up; in fact, quite the opposite. The Glastonbury, Connecticut, company can attribute much of this success to the niche it has carved […]

Beth M. Kotran – Ferrero North America

Est. reading time: 5 mins

As general counsel for the North American operations of the global confectionery heavyweight Ferrero, Beth M. Kotran has literally achieved—well almost—what she had so aspired to after leaving private practice in 2002. “I was focused on one piece of a bigger pie,” she tells Vanguard from her office in Parsippany, New Jersey. “I wanted to […]

Julie Kinch – Heineken USA

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Ten years ago, well into her tenure as chief legal counsel for Heineken USA, Julie Kinch helped launch a company-wide women’s leadership forum. What began with six people in a Chicago conference room has, in the decade since, grown to include more than 120 members from throughout Heineken’s ranks—male and female, millennials and boomers, executives […]

Erin Bagley – Coverys

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Amidst the cacophony of the national health insurance debate—over who pays what and how; and of when liability comes into play—one voice always seems drowned in the din: that of practitioners providing the care. It’s a conundrum Erin Bagley knows only too well. As general counsel for Coverys, a medical professional liability insurer headquartered in […]

Ron Palmese – Shake Shack

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Like many young lawyers in firms, Ron Palmese was mindful of his professional growth being limited by having to concentrate on a specific area of practice and thus not being exposed to the big picture for a client. Much as he enjoyed transactional law, Palmese didn’t feel satisfied enough with his level of involvement in […]
