Jason Hope, Integrating Philanthropy And Technology

Arizona entrepreneur, Jason Hope is going into unchartered territory with his financial donations and support of anti-aging research. Uncharted, because Jason’s aim is to make aging a thing of the past or at the very least halt the progression of its most devastating effects. In 2010, Jason made headlines with his gift contribution of $500,000 to the SENS Research Foundation. The Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to groundbreaking anti-aging research. Located in Mountainview, California, SENS is opening genetic pathways in rejuvenation biotechnology. That’s the field of scientific based research that examines the potential benefits of regenerative medicine.

SENS research is specifically targeted towards identifying the underlying cellular markers that are the root cause of aging. And not only as remedy, but to prevent the queue of accelerated aging seen as result. SENS uses biotechnology to not only help the general population, but also as a combined approach to stop degenerative diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cancer. The initial donation by Jason Hope enabled ongoing research into the medicinal properties of sugar molecules. These molecules are involved in a cellular process called, glycation. Glycation (glucose production) causes us to age faster, research is needed to reduce the end product accumulation in humans. Jason said that he felt compelled to help with research efforts, because a breakthrough could prevent these disease states from occurring in the first place.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi – The Man At Bradesco

A living legend in his own right, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is the current president and chief executive officer of Bradesco. He holds two positions at Bradesco bank for the time being because the former CEO, Lazaro de Mello Brandao resigned. Although Brandao has turned in his resignation he still manages some financial holding of Bradesco to date.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was born in Mirilia in 1951. He finished his studies at the University of Sao Paulo where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sciences. His career at the Bradesco bank started in 1969, where he climbed up the corporate ladder through the ranks until he reached his current position. He also holds various high ranking positions in other companies namely: CEO of the Bradesco Organization, Member of Board of Directors and Managing Director of the Foundation Institute for Digestive System and Nutrition Diseases or better known as FIMADEN, among others.

When Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi became Bradesco’s president in 2009, the bank lost some of its market share due to the merging of Unibanco and Banco Itau. To be able to recapture the downturn status of Bradesco – Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi with the blessings and approval of Lazaro Brandao, bought HSBC Brasil. This is considered by some as one of the most expensive company acquisition in Brazil at that time.

Proving his acumen as a leader, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi not only looked out for the banks physical asset growth but also took time to instill team work within the bank executives, which encourage everyone to work as a unit. This form of management style made it better to supervise and achieve the goals and objectives they set out to do. He likewise left branch executive heads to manage their respective branches on their own, letting them to make decisions with minimal intrusions from the head office. In this way the branch executive heads felt like they really are part owners of Bradesco, motivating them to work harder and strive higher.

The said acquisition of HSBC Brasil gave Bradesco the advantage and it was able to regain its status as one of the leading banks in Brazil. The banks market share multiplied and has since then grown not only within Brazil but also overseas.

With the position of Brandao left opened, it is assumed that high ranking executives within Bradesco bank will soon fill up the position by the time shareholders come for a meeting and vote in March 2018. The grapevine has it that the vice president for market and technology in the person of Mauricio Minas is the best contender for the position as CEO.

As Bradesco bank continuously grows, it pioneered the ATM biometric reading system, where customers are able to make transactions by using the vascular palm prints of their hand as a password. It also had R2D2 bots that entices potential customers to come into the bank premises and explore the area within. This is very high tech and intuitive way to capture more bank clients and introduce their wide array of financial services.

Currently, Bradesco has a branch in New York City and two branches in the Grand Cayman. It also has financial subsidiaries in Mexico, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Buenos Aires and London.

Although the economy has taken a downward spiral for the past years, Bradesco is positive that it will be able to increase its credit undertakings by five percent in 2018. To make this possible, the bank’s main focus now is to enhance the dissemination of their credit services and boost income fees for various financial services provided. Indeed, the future looks bright for Bradesco.

Mike Baur And Creating New Jobs In Tech Startups

For many years, Switzerland’s economy was rooted in banking and if you wanted the best paying job in that nation, you sought to become successful in investment banking. But that’s not really the case anymore as one former banker can attest to, and he’s now feeding a new entrepreneurial spirit that’s taken hold of Switzerland. That former banker is Mike Baur, the former head of commercial banking at UBS and Clariden Leu and the current President of the Swiss Startup Factory. Instead of managing financial capital for the nation’s wealthiest investors, he’s now managing human capital and helping these new entrepreneurs take their wildest ideas and put them into a real business plan that can become reality in a very short time. Baur is very picky on who he chooses to invest in, but the SSUF has already seen thousands of brand new companies take off from its portfolio.

 

Banking was said to be the beginning and final destination of Mike Baur’s life since entering into it as a teenager. He was accepted to the apprenticeship program at UBS Bank and he was told by an older manager that if he accomplished certain goals and got his education within a time frame, he would get promoted at points in that road map and reach his retirement goal at the right age. Baur loved what he heard and worked hard at his career, and even while he was only in his 20s he started seeing how that road map was working out. However, he started having a change of heart about staying at UBS sometime later, and it wasn’t long after leaving it for Clariden Leu that the bank went under. Baur worked for Clariden Leu until it was bought out by Credit Suisse, and then quit the banking career for good upon clashing with upper management.

 

Mike Baur looked for new business opportunities upon quitting banking, and upon noticing how many entrepreneurs were coming out of college with the knowledge to succeed but lacking the capital to do so, he decided to start the accelerator so they could get that capital quickly. In 2014, he and Max Meister teamed up with Oliver Walzer and some other investment firms to make it happen. From training conferences to live coaching and instructing its entrants on how to make investment pitches, the SSUF puts ideas to the test to see if they’re truly actionable plans. Fintech Fusion and CTI Group have also made this accelerator possible.

 

Lori Senecal: Leadership Excellence

As Lori Senecal’s time with CP+B comes to an end, a lot of people realize how big of an impact she’s had on the company. In March 2015, she joined the company as Global CEO, a position the founder created just for her. She also served as President and CEO for another company while leading CP+B.

Though her retirement announced shocked the company, she announced it early enough that the company is able to prepare for her departure. Chuck Porter, founder and Chairman of CP+B, loved working with her over these past few years. He considers her more than a partner; she’s a friend.

In a recent statement, he talked about the impact she’s made. Senecal’s an expert at developing mildly successful companies and turning them into international successes. Thanks to her leadership, CP+B is more flexible with the nimbleness of an energetic startup. That’s just some of the brilliance she’s brought the company.

In a report by GC Report, overall, her performance exceeds fantastic. To some, her achievements at CP+B might be the greatest of her entire career. Although she’s only been with the company a few years, she made quite the name for herself. She even landed American Airlines as a client.

For 25 years, the American Airlines account always went to TM Advertising. In her first year with the company, Lori Senecal snagged the account, adding another big-name client to CP+B. She also brought the company the Hershey’s account. It’s still unclear what made Senecal decide to retire at the end of the year.

Nevertheless, she and Porter are developing the next generation of company leaders. They’re at all the offices’ greatest leaders, trying to decide who to promote to which position. It’s clear that no one will ever fully replace Lori Senecal, but they’re still being thoughtful and careful about each decision. For more details visit Adweek.

Even though Senecal’s got a few more months, the new leadership team is already coming together. In particular, Danielle Aldrich already got a promotion. She’s the new President of CP+B West.

Richard Mishaan Design: Consistently One of the Best Interior Design Firms in New York for More Than Two Decades

Home décor magazines are quite popular in New York. Considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, people are eager to brighten up their living spaces with ideas from New York’s best interior designers. A name that has featured numerous times in such magazines is Richard Mishaan. The founder and manager of Richard Mishaan Design is considered interior design royalty in New York, and for a good reason.

Background

Brought up in Colombia, Richard Mishaan moved to the United States in his adulthood and studied at the University of New York. He began his career working for the famed architect, Phillip Johnson. The brief experience with Mr. Johnson laid sparked his interest in design and led him on a path to become one of the most skilled and unique in New York’s interior design industry. As opposed to holding him back, his educational background in architecture gave him an edge over his peers by enabling him to see perspectives others did not. Soon after graduating with his postgraduate degree, Mishaan decided that it was time he created his artistic designs. Therefore, about two-and-a-half decades ago, he founded the firm, Richard Mishaan Design

Inspiration

Richard Mishaan is what many would call an interior design purist. He does not believe in boundaries when working on his projects. Consequently, a look through Richard Mishaan Design’s portfolio reveals spaces that combine modernity and antiquity in a peculiar but aesthetic and functional manner. His secret life is that he draws much of the inspiration for these designs from his own experiences. Growing up in Colombia exposed him to color and historical art. Equally, his move to New York exposed him to symmetry and modern art. Consequently, the designs he creates are merely representations of the various experiences he has had in life. Since these experiences cannot be bought or copied, Richard Mishaan Design has consistently remained at the top for the last 26 years.

The Resurgence of George Soros and His Support for Social Activist Groups

George Soros has once again taken back his mantle as a major donor to the Democratic Party. He previously funded campaigns for previous candidates, and this year he comes back to raise money to put Hillary into office. Soros backed Obama in both his campaigns, and he now seeks to help give America its first female president. George Soros has an estimated net worth of $24.9 billion acquired through trading. People expect him to give money as the election date edges closer.People close to Soros say he is more politically engaged and motivated than he has been in recent years. He is a consistent donor to Democratic causes, and he considers this to be a critical point as GOP candidate is particularly unflattering. Soros has supported key issues that the GOP candidate is hostile to, which is why he is keen for a Democratic win.

Some of the issues that Soros holds dear include immigration reform, religious tolerance, and criminal justice. Soros’ willingness to donate significant amounts for Clinton’s campaign has been seen as a good sign as he is seen as having the potential to catalyze donations by other wealthy activists. San Francisco environmentalist Tom Steyer has donated $31 million. Don Sussman, the New York hedge fund man, has donated $13.2 million while media moguls Haim Saban and Fred Eychaner have donated $11.1 million each. This rallying of the lefts richest donors has aided Clinton’s campaign to build a massive financial advantage over Trump who is regarded with a lot of suspicion by the GOP donors.Soros was also heavily involved in the Ferguson protests. He funded the protest movement and mobilizing groups across the country and kept the protests alive for years. George donated $33million in a single year to support established groups that gave a voice to the grassroots activists.

As a firm believer in the participation of people in their government, he truly proved he puts his money where his opinion is. Although through his Open Society Foundation the funds were allocated to these groups involved in the protests, they were not in any way to protest on behalf of OSF. The protests were spontaneous all over the country, raising awareness of the social injustices that were taking place.Other groups used the funds to keep the story alive long enough for the world to see what was happening. The multiple organizations that benefited from the donations were able to come together from time to time come together and work as one. They shared content and buzzwords across the Official Websites. Twitter hashtags dominated the mainstream media. Bus loads full of activists from all over the country all funded by Mr. Soros descended on Ferguson and organized protests and gatherings all across the city. The aim was to keep the media’s attention to widen the scope of the incident. They needed to bring to light interrelated causes not just over policing and racism points of view. Mr. Soros helped shed light on a lot of issues, and as American people, people thank him for his generosity and concern.
