Catherine F. Lamson – MEMIC

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Tending to personnel matters for 10 years at a Maine bank had its moments, but Catherine F. Lamson had an epiphany of sorts during the 1980s. Health care seemed a wilder ride, “where rubber meets the road,” she recalls thinking. So she took her HR skillset from banking to a hospital, then to a diagnostics […]

Everyone at Panola Medical Center wished CEO Quentin Whitwell a safe and speedy recovery when he contracted COVID-19 in September 2021. And, when he returned to work at the Batesville, Mississippi, hospital, they got a big surprise. In the 10 days Whitwell recuperated at home, he decided it was time to reopen Quitman Community Hospital […]

Chris Tyler – GE Power

It may seem to the benefit of consumers, but the depressed price of natural gas presents issues to a multinational company’s division whose responsibilities include creating around a third of the world’s electricity from multiple sources—and is also in the midst of a realignment. So it’s a big-picture view that Chris Tyler must take to […]

Community Farm Store

Est. reading time: 5 mins

At the heart of Duncan, British Columbia, nestled in a small shopping complex barely a mile from the city’s vibrant downtown, sits The Community Farm Store (CFS). Combining farm-fresh produce, eco-friendly products and a litany of educational resources, the depot epitomizes the region’s back-to-the-earth ethos. You might say it’s all in the name. “The store […]

The sharing of information being essential among insurance companies, Christopher G. McDaniel says it shouldn’t take too much doing for more and more carriers to see the value in becoming members of an industry-owned blockchain consortium that he’s fronted since late 2017. “The insurance industry is very unique,” he tells Vision from London, where he’s […]

Chief Anthony Rivera – U.S. Navy

As a young man, Anthony Rivera didn’t know about the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), but was aware of the U.S. Navy and the opportunities it offered for direction, discipline and personal growth. He needed such guidance, Rivera being the Southern California-born son of an El Salvadoran refugee father and a 15-year-old American mother […]

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 […]

Champa Bhushan – Reston Consulting Group

In 1987, the idea of a cyberattack—that someone might gain control of your computer system and steal your organization’s dollars or data—sounded like science fiction. Back then, the primary threats were of the physical sort: keeping cash in safes and making sure that buildings were properly locked. Thirty-one years later, the security landscape hasn’t simply […]

Claudio Petti – Drainstar Contracting

Without them, we wouldn’t have clean drinking water at the turn of a tap. Prior to their widespread adoption in the mid-19th century, the most sanitary way of diverting waste involved hauling buckets to a nearby cesspool. And yet, we walk and drive over them every day, taking their existence—indeed, their engineering brilliance—almost completely for […]

Chris Laxdal – Kitchen Craft

Est. reading time: 3 mins

If you’ve ever hosted a dinner party, you know the phenomenon: Rather than mingle on the porch or in the living room—where you’ve spent hours getting the music and ambiance just right—guests always seem to congregate in the kitchen. There’s a reason they call it the heart of the home, after all, and for the […]
