The majority of people in this world aren’t too familiar with Anthony Petrello or “Tony.” They may not even be familiar with him at all. People may vaguely associate him with the enormous corporate universe in the United States, nothing more and nothing less. Petrello isn’t in the media too often. He doesn’t give speeches like the most widely known politicians do. That doesn’t mean, however, that he’s not an integral part of life in the United States. He’s in many ways a symbol of a nation that’s all about dedication and devoted work practices.

Petrello in the past was the Chief Executive Officer who had the highest salary in the country. He’s the person at the top at Nabors Industries. This is a major drilling company that specializes in natural gasoline and oil. People who get this far in life often make others feel jealous and upset. Individuals who have ever had the pleasure of encountering Petrello, however, realize that he’s someone who is 100 percent modest. He’s not a person who ever takes more than his share.

Petrello’s background wasn’t the easiest, either. This man didn’t start off with all of the riches in the world. His story couldn’t be further from that. His parents weren’t rich or famous in any way. They didn’t give him access to endless funds. Petrello was reared in a Newark, New Jersey community that consisted mostly of Italian-Americans. Newark isn’t exactly a luxurious place. People in this city undoubtedly are aware of the strength of earning their keep. They know better than anyone else that money doesn’t simply grow on trees. Petrello obviously learned a lot from his time in Newark as a youth. That’s the reason that he’s no stranger to giving 100 percent to every work opportunity that enters his life.

This proud executive worked tirelessly to get to his current status. He went to Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. This Ivy League institution is among the most well-known in the United States. People all around the planet know about Yale University, too. The young Petrello regularly impressed the people around him with his unrivaled mathematical abilities. People couldn’t ignore his strong mathematical powers. Petrello didn’t stop studying after he completed his time at Yale University. He pushed forward and made the decision to enroll at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He became a tried and tested legal wizard there.

Maricopa County is a county in southern Arizona near the border of Mexico—ground zero for the arrival of illegal immigrants. Being in and near deserts, its temperatures soar up to deadly heights. The harsh climate creates a huge obstacle for those who attempt to cross the border. Some people never make it across alive. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey and http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/

There are local organizations that work with each other to put out water and other life-saving resources for people who cross the border. There is an organization called the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund that generously donates to organizations like this.

The Fund is owned by two men who are very sympathetic to the cause of immigrants who cross the border—Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. These two men have written for The Phoenix New Times—a left-winged publication—ever since the early 1970s. Since the 1990s, they have been closely following the actions of Sheriff Arpaio. As a result, Arpaio took an interest in persecuting them. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

In 2007, Lacey and Larkin experienced the shock of being manhandled by cops in plain clothes, thrown into vans and taken to separate jails. This happened because they kept poking at Sheriff Arpaio, constantly exposing his wrongdoings on their online publication.

They pursued their case in court and worked out a deal with Maricopa County to be handed over $3.7 million dollars. Upon receiving this money, Lacey and Larkin did not just fade into the woodwork or spend the money on unneeded material items—they founded the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund!

What would Sheriff Arpaio think of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund? Well, judging by what kind of ideology he goes by, he would probably not agree with the existence of the Fund. He would probably consider it as the abetment of criminals.

Arpaio kept racially profiling people after he got into trouble for it. As a result, he was held in criminal contempt. Trump pardoned him in 2017, letting Arpaio get off Scott-free. Some people believe that Arpaio was completely correct in his policy to spot and detain potential illegal aliens. Other people, like Lacey and Larkin, opine otherwise.

All over the website for the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, you can find story after story about Sheriff Arpaio. For years, they have been on his butt like glue, digging up every little piece of negative information about him that they can find.

There are also some negative stories about Trump because, of course, Trump is classified as being a total “bigot” in the same way that Arpaio is.

Dick DeVos may not be known by the general public, but his name is synonymous with progress in Michigan.

 

DeVos, the son of Amway co-founder Rich DeVos, was appointed in 2017 to the civilian Management Advisory Council. The 13-member board is the adviser to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)on issues like spending, policy, regulations and long-range planning.

 

DeVos’ wife is more familiar to the American public. He is married to Betsy DeVos, the newly appointed Secretary of the Department of Education.

 

Even though Dick DeVos hasn’t served as an elected official, he has done much work in the political arena of his home state. He organized a downtown action group in Grand Rapids, Mich., in 1991 called Grand Action. It’s purpose was to build a multi-purpose sports arena and convention center downtown.

 

DeVos started the effort after he learned of plans to build a complex north of downtown, which he felt would pull people and money away from downtown and cause the urban area to fall into blight.

 

The group ended up with multi-buildings that completely revitalized the area including the DeVos Place Convention Center, the DeVos Performance Hall, the Van Andel Arena, and the Grand Rapids City Market. They even built the medical school at Michigan State University.

 

DeVos, a licensed pilot, also worked to improve aviation in western Michigan when he wooed AirTran Airways to run non-stop flights out of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport. Continuing the flights faced a challenge when Southwest bought the air carrier, but DeVos saved the airport from being cut from Southwest routes by convincing them service to and from the area was worthwhile.

 

Both Dick and Betsy DeVos have made improving education a priority and have worked to expand charter schools in Michigan. While the issue became a heartfelt passion for his wife, DeVos also worked in the effort and even combined the charter school idea with aviation to establish the West Michigan Aviation Academy in 2010.

 

The school, which started in old office space at the airport, quickly grew from 80 students to 600. The school now has its own building and buses in students from seven counties. Tuition is free.

 

The DeVoses also contribute their own money toward the charter school and other educational causes. While the West Michigan Aviation Academy receives around $7,500 in a per student allowance from the state, the DeVoses have given more than $7 million to the fund the school as of 2014, according to records. Their gifts include a $3 million loan, given at no-interest, to expand and equip the school’s building.

 

The couple has donated approximately $139 million dollars to charitable causes over their lifetimes. Learn more: http://www.celebfamily.com/business/richard-devos-family.html

Clay B. Siegall, Ph.D is the President, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Seattle Genetics. He co-founded the company in 1998. Dr. Siegall is a scientist by training, with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the University of Maryland and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Genetics from The George Washington University. Clay Siegall received the Alumnus of the Year for Computer, Math and Natural Sciences at the University of Maryland.

As CEO of Seattle Genetics, Dr. Siegall has led the company to a leadership position in the marketplace by creating antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for cancer treatment. Dr. Siegall’s expertise and the innovative work of Seattle Genetics is well recognized. The company has formed a number of strategic licensing arrangements for its ADC technology with companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and Genentech (Roche). Dr. Siegall has also excelled as the leader of Seattle Genetics in capital raising activities. To date, the company has secured more than $675 million by way of private and public financings. Seattle Genetics executed an initial public offering in 2001.

Mr. Clay Siegall and Seattle Genetics are at the forefront of research into cancer treatments. One example is the work being done to have a new therapy brought to market for the treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma. In the summer of 2017, Seattle Genetics came forth with positive data resulting from their Phase III study of a new drug “cocktail” which drops the toxic bleomycin from the standard chemotherapy used to treat Hodgkin lymphoma.

Staying at the forefront of cancer research, and maintaining the effort to be a market leader, Dr. Siegall and Seattle Genetics recently negotiated the $614 million acquisition of the biotechnology company Cascadian Therapeutics. Just prior to the acquisition, Cascadian Therapeutics was in the midst of the decisive Phase II trials of a new breast cancer therapy known as “tucatinib.” Dr. Siegall states: “Tucatinib would complement our existing pipeline of targeted cancer therapies, provide a third late-stage opportunity for a commercial product in solid tumors and expand our global efforts in breast cancer.” (Endpoint News, January 31, 2018 https://endpts.com/restless-seattle-genetics-snaps-up-a-pivotal-stage-cancer-drug-with-614m-cascadian-buyout-pact/ )

The Reputation Of A Winner Of An M&A Advisor Award

Reputation is everything to the Madison Street Capital firm. The agency is an investment bank that works with international clients and the emerging markets that we’re witnessing abroad.

The world economy is expanding faster than any other economy we know of, and it took the brilliance of this agency to lead the work in foreign markets. Learn more about Madison Street Capital: https://pitchengine.com/madison_street_capital/2017/01/04/madison-street-capital-acts-as-advisor-in-the/002519188290269682183 and http://www.abfjournal.com/dailynews/madison-street-capital-arranges-credit-facility-for-renegade-industrial/

The reputation of the agency stands on a concept that we can uncover in its name. The idea of moving Wall Street is likely something we’ll never see in this lifetime.

Still, the mentality of a new financial street became a momentous idea that continues to propel Madison Street Capital into greater business and with more satisfied clients around the entire globe.

Walking A Long Road To Success

The reputation of Madison Street Capital is built from a long road that was paved by success. The agency’s reputation means a great deal to its staff but not because of pride and arrogance.

The development of a real reputation on Wall Street takes into account performance. You would be rich if given a nickel for everyone who bragged about what they could do.

Bragging takes you nowhere in this industry, so the name of Madison Street Capital had to be built on performance alone. What we now witness is the result of many years of success that’s added to the overall prestige known through the MSC brand. Read

The firm will continue to outshine the financial markets and to win financial awards as the economic seasons end.

The Reputation Ultimately Built

We now see Madison Capital operate on a level as if it has relocated the work of Wall Street to its own backyard.

Every professional and in every field strives to turn what they work at daily into a game and into a larger future than they can possibly imagine. The imagination of Madison Capital also plays a huge part to the reputation it has.

The agency entered the financial platform like every agency has to. This was with a past history of success that it then wanted to extend to others.

The focus Madison Street took was in the international markets and the expanding business potentials found there. The end result is a legacy that moves with the force of Wall Street but located in Chicago, Illinois.

As Switzerland started seeing things change in 2008 with the financial crisis reaching even the halls of their fortified banks, the call started echoing to start moving away from just safe business investments and to take a risk on the new and the unknown coming in part from President Johann Schneider-Ammann, and being followed by businessman Mike Baur. Baur believes there are many ideas for brand new tech businesses circulating in Switzerland’s universities and other colleges around Europe, but it’s just a matter of being willing to believe in them and take the risks. But he’s working to get these businesses off the ground and to do so rapidly through an accelerator known as the Swiss Startup Factory. This accelerator has not only a lot of pitch and demonstration sessions, but also ongoing coaching and giving entrepreneurs a better understanding of selling their business.

 

Mike Baur originally saw his path to lifetime success going through banking as it was the most popular way to get rich at the time. He was good with numbers and started out learning the aspects of bank management as an apprentice at UBS while only 16 years old. He was already involved in advising clients in his 20s and came to know some of Switzerland’s wealthiest investors. Baur was promoted several times at UBS until he was almost an executive, but in 2008 things changed as the financial crisis hit UBS. Baur left for another big bank, Clariden Leu where he once again became a prominent manager. But in 2014 he stepped down permanently and decided it was time to enter the unknown.

 

Other people had also left their previous positions in banking when Baur did including Max Meister and Oliver Walzer who also saw a big opportunity to invest in young people and start bringing about completely new companies to Switzerland. What Baur understood was that many ideas and beginning businesses just needed to develop sustainable plans and be able to connect with capital suppliers, so that’s when he, Meister and Walzer decided to build this kind of network at the Swiss Startup Factory through a partnership with Goldback Group and Fintech Fusion. While many people apply to get to the SSUF’s 3-month accelerator program, not too many are admitted and out of those admitted there are few finalists who make it to the SSUF portfolio. But those who do are also given free office space and resources to launch their companies.
