The Paramount Leadership Roles Wes Edens Played for Fortress Investment and Other Ventures

The growth of Fortress Investment Group LLC would be probably unimaginable and unrealized without the involvement of its principal and co-chairman Wes Edens. In an article from Business Wire, such relevance of Wes Edens in the growth, prosperity and expansion of Fortress since it was founded is being affirmed to be evident, too. It also adds the official statement of what Wes Edens thought of the recent acquisition decision of OneMain Financial by Springleaf. Wes Edens shared that being a shareholder of Springleaf, he believes that the recent transaction is a bold and compelling decision both financially and strategy-wise.

Such decision would combine the strengths of the two companies and bring forth the best set of products and services for their clients. With similar cultures and management teams that see things in a way that balances unique perspective and unity, this new decision would then be an exciting opportunity for growth. The article also added that Fortress has about 73 million shares already of Springleaf after Fortress purchased 80% stake for American General Finance, that reached to about $125 million. Edens also shared that the collaboration would create a premium consumer-centered company that would serve about 2.5 million customers.

About Wes Edens

Edens’ career in Fortress starts as being its co-chairman, co-founder and principal when the company was founded in 1998. Also, with Edens’ role in the company, Fortress is able to build a reputation of being a diversified global investment company with about $67.5 billion of assets under its management. Before his work at Fortress, he went to the Oregon State University in 1984 to get a B.S. degree. It is also in the public executive profile of Edens that he’s the co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, which is an NBA-licensed franchise from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The growth of the League of Legends game team FlyQuest is also possible because of Edens’ ownership role. There’s also a number of advisory boards today where Edens plays a solid role. Some of them include Springleaf Holdings where he’s a board member in 2010. He’s also the Chairman of Nationstar Mortgage Holdings, as well as the Chairman of the Board for New Senior Investment Group.

Entrepreneur Extraordinaire: Guilherme Paulus

Today Guilherme Paulus can be able to take his children to any destination or college they want thanks to the significant success he has achieved as an entrepreneur in the Brazilian tourism industry. Growing up, however, was very different as he did not come from a wealthy background. Guilherme Paulus was, in fact, unable to pursue his dream of pursuing medicine as his parents could not afford it. This would propel him to become an entrepreneur, and it is exactly what he has done more than forty years later.

Guilherme Paulus first joined the world of business when he established CVC. His was a vision of one day taking over the tour industry. He was determined to grow the company from an idea in his head to something tangible and of significant value. This dream was made possible by pure tenacity at times when there was not much going on in the said industry. After several years of struggling CVC would finally pick up and as today he gives the impressive numbers the group keeps posting you can’t help but feel envious.

During the Top Seller Event where he was a guest speaker, he was in a position to provide some numbers that included 9,086 travel agents some of these are located in the 1,164 stores run by the company. These are spread out in all the states having a presence in at least 456 cities. These levels of investment and expansion have been made possible by constantly plowing back profits and an aggressive growth strategy according to bloomberg.com. These travel agencies were able to bring CVC 3,978,018 passengers in 2016. This number was expected to grow the following year given the promising start they had and the expanding tourism sector, and as of October 2017, CVC had already recorded 3,681,624 passengers already catered to. \

The continued growth of CVC was further enabled by Carlyle, which bought a controlling stake in 2009. They came in with enough money and expertise to help grow the company to greater heights. Their entry into the organization could not have been better placed as at the time Guilherme Paulus was eyeing bigger growth given the scheduled world cup and summer Olympics that were slated to take place in Brazil in 2014 and 2016 respectively. This boost in the capital has been essential as CVC was recently able to acquire one of its smaller competitors Experimento for about 4.3 million dollars. This buy out was meant to cement its position as market leader.

OSI’s David McDonald Leads the Way for Spanish Plant Opening

President David McDonald has been in the food industry for over thirty years, starting with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Animal Science from Iowa State University.

Other countries like Spain have now even become the distribution hub of OSI’s Southern European operations. This distance between supply and demand is so great, actually, that OSI is building a new facility in Spain to keep up and grow its operations. The Spanish OSI building (located in Toledo) stands to produce for both Portuguese and Spanish markets as a way to generate double the output as prior. In the past there was 12,000 tons of meat produced per year; this number now becomes 24,000 or more tons per year.

The physical building itself is going to consist of 20,000 square footage: a cost of roughly €17,000,000. The factory will both generate twice the output and storage space, and will also house a new production unit, shipping unit, a break room , a climate controlled space for ample storage, and even a testing facility for inventing new food products. As of now, there are more than 160 workers at David’s new Iberian facility and 20 of those workers are new hires to match the enlarged demand. David McDonald additionally added a modern fire prevention system, on top of greater fence security and security cameras. (This all is in addition to the building achieving 20% fewer energy use than older plants).

OSI Group is located near Chicago and was founded in 1909. Right now, OSI makes a variety of products that include the likes of smoked meats, pizza toppings, hamburger patties, hot dogs, bacon, and more.

Talos Energy’s oil discovery In Mexico

A recent billion-dollar discovery of crude oil in Mexico might be the turnaround moment that Mexico needed in order to lure major big pins in the oil industry to invest. This comes at a time when drillers were cutting exploration funds due to little output but sing then drillers from Europe and Italy have increasingly drawn interest and become involved. Auctions in the past drew spotty interest but the discovery could potential driver higher bids and added interest in the future as the Mexican Government seeks to boost production levels which have fallen by a third over the past decade.

Recently three big shots; Talos Energy LLC, Premier Oil Plc and Sierra Oil & Gas announced a discovery done by foreign explorers after a span of 80 years. The three companies discovered an estimated 1.4 billion to 2 billion barrels of crude oil in a reservoir. Pablo Medina, an analyst from Wood Mackenzie Ltd cited that future bids were likely to be more aggressive as the discovery would rev up interest in Mexico’s energy industry.

In a statement by Sierra, the company said that the Mexican Government would receive 68.99 percent profit per barrel and up to 80 percent when considering taxes and fees for the whole project. President Enrique Pena ventures into reforming the energy sector in 2013 but the fruits were seen after Talos Energy’s oil prices dropped. This reforms involved amending the constitution in order to allow foreign oil investors into the country. Something that hadn’t been done its nationalization in 1938.

After the amendments, the first auctions were received in 2015 where Eni was the first major industry players to win several contracts. Since then world oil corporation such as Chevron Corp., BP Plc, and Exxon Mobile Corp won contracts. Since then Mexico has enabled bidding of shallow waters by explorers other the state-owned Pemex.

The field holding the discovery is located sixty kilometers offshore from the Mexican Port of Dos Bocas. This discovery comes after three companies jointly won an exploration license two years ago. This discovery has also de-risked a bit the shallow water opportunities as there is a potential to find assets overlooked by Pemex cited Jeremy Martin.
