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 […]

Barkman Concrete

When sales reps for Barkman Concrete go to tradeshows, they run into a problem not uncommon in sales: people don’t believe them, but it’s not for the usual reasons. Barkman’s recent line of wood replica products so closely imitate the real thing it’s hard to tell they’re actually made from concrete. “People are down on […]

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 […]

Benjamin E. Allen – Parnassus Investments

The company was ahead of its time, Benjamin E. Allen remarks with a chuckle. Maybe so far ahead of its time—like 20 years—that prosperity came much later. For it seems that even in progressive San Francisco, the concept of socially responsible investing was a very acquired market trend when Parnassus Investments opened its doors in […]

Beth M. Kotran – Ferrero North America

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 […]

Bill Tremko – USI Consulting Group

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 […]

Brenna Berman – City of Chicago

Every day, on her short eight-block commute, Brenna Berman sees the impact of her work. Berman joined the City of Chicago in 2011 as deputy budget director, and in 2012 she was made chief information officer. Today, when a bicycle rides by as she walks to work, Berman knows that data accessible through the city […]

Brian Ball – Lyndon Furniture

Vermont giving rise to such bucolic imagery, it’s no wonder why businesses well outside of it try to capitalize on the Green Mountain State’s charms. It’s even been suggested that packaging decorated by drawings of farmhouses, covered bridges and snowy peaks enables a markup in price, consumers rarely reading the fine print about where the […]

Brian Saulnier – Sea Crest Fisheries Ltd

What a difference just a few years makes, muses Brian Saulnier, president of a southwest Nova Scotia operation that, not too long ago,  was thriving in its support of the province’s then-booming mink farms. For as recently as 2014, those pelts comprised one of Nova Scotia’s top agricultural exports, a $140 million industry, with China, […]

Brodie Cobb – Presidio Capital Advisors

Brodie Cobb opines that mergers are like marriages—not all are built to last. That said, all seems blissful with the 2016 coming together of Tiedemann Advisors and Presidio Capital Advisors, a subsidiary of The Presidio Group that Cobb founded in 1997. While remaining as chief executive officer of The Presidio Group, Cobb is a board […]
