Adelaida Adames – Philip Morris International DO & Caribbean Markets

Times change for any industry, and Philip Morris International—the world’s most successful cigarette company—has long acknowledged the old axiom about smoking being hazardous to one’s health. It is aiming for a smoke-free future by promoting products such as e-cigarettes and technology that heats but doesn’t burn. That makes it an exciting time for Adelaida Adames, […]

Advanced Wealth Management Group

In the run-up to last Thanksgiving, the several hundred clients of Minneapolis-based Advanced Wealth Management Group (AWMG) got greeting cards from the firm they’ve long entrusted to guide their financial futures and plan their retirements. Only the cards were about more than just the usual good wishes. Recipients were given the choice of designating one […]

Aldo Escalante – Grupo Financiero BASE

Just a little over 30 years old as a financial institution—and only seven of those as a validated bank—Grupo Financiero BASE is downright young when it comes to the banking industry: Its competitors and contemporaries have many more decades, very often centuries, of experience behind them. But youth also means there is ample opportunity for […]

Alejandro Fernandez Ramirez-Buendia – Cotemar

He joined the legal department of Cotemar, Mexico’s dominant oilfields services provider, at a most challenging time in 2013, when petroleum prices were at a low. The situation wasn’t much better three years later, when Alejandro Fernandez Ramirez-Buendia was promoted to head of legal and general counsel, but much of the reason for his hiring […]

Alvaro Martinez – Sodexo (Latin America)

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve met a CEO or two. The same goes for general counsels. Even if you haven’t met any, you know about them. Seeing someone wear both hats at once? You might’ve just found a corporate unicorn. Only, you needn’t scour some ethereal forest to find Alvaro Martinez. He’s out […]

American Portfolios Financial Services Inc.

In 2011, at the height of the Occupy Wall Street protests, Lon Dolber took a walk down to Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan. Over the preceding days, thousands of demonstrators had gathered in and around the mostly concrete common to voice opposition to what they saw as a financial system run amok. Ever the conversationalist, […]

Bargmann Hendrie + Archetype Inc.

If there were any dissent from the rest of the legal world, it seemed muted in 2016, when the Boston Business Journal stated that the new Goodwin offices may be “the nicest law firm space in the country.” The case seemed closed indeed, for there was much about these offices at 100 Northern Avenue—designed by […]

Beirne Wealth Consulting Services

Beirne Wealth Consulting Services (BWC) very nearly has an A-to-Z list of the causes and organizations it supports—from the American Cancer Society to the Make a Wish Foundation to YMCA Strong Kids. These wide-ranging philanthropic endeavors seem a testament to the Connecticut-based firm’s core principle that corporate responsibility isn’t an obligation—it’s fundamental. “We believe that […]

Carlos Landazabal Angeli – General Electric

The trademark of a successful corporate lawyer? It’s not just legal and business savvy, answers Carlos Landazabal Angeli, who, since November 2012, has served as General Electric’s legal leader for South America’s Andean region, as well as Central America and the Caribbean. Anticipation is just as important, the soft-spoken general counsel tells Vanguard from his […]

Daniel Perez-Cirera – Samsung Mexico

Daniel Perez-Cirera rarely feels nervous anymore. Nervous was going to bed Sunday night ahead of another 80-hour workweek, or flying to Finland for that first meeting at Nokia headquarters. As he walks once again into the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) in Mexico City, Perez-Cirera isn’t gripped with doubts. But he’s aware of the […]
