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, […]

Anza Electric Cooperative

In the high desert of Southern California, utility companies face plenty of challenges: mountainous terrain, high winds, extreme temperatures, the occasional snowstorm, beating sun and 4,000-foot altitude. Often, just getting a service truck to a utility pole is a challenge. Given these challenges, those locales aren’t exactly a draw for private utility companies. That’s where […]

Aurora Importing & Distributing Limited

Today’s consumers are more informed in their shopping choices, making product authenticity a major factor in buying decisions. Based in Toronto, Aurora Importing & Distributing Limited has been on a quest to deliver the highest level of product quality and authenticity in traditional Italian imports and fine foods from around the world more than 61 […]

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 […]
