Highland Capital Knows How To Take Care Of Their Community

Dallas has some great locations for victims of domestic violence to go so that they can get away from the trauma while taking care of other family members who are also caught in the crossfire. One of those is The Family Place which worked hard recently to meet their capital goals. Thankfully, James Dondero has brought in his company Highland Capital Management to help them meet the goals outlined by awarding a cool $1 million towards that end.

 

As president James Dondero always holds such causes dear to his heart and looks to help out the surrounding city and community as much as possible. In fact, his company has a section called the Highland Dallas Foundation which is setup to work with philanthropic motives. The only thing which The Family Place has to do is raise a similar amount since Highland is going to be donating at a 50% match rate. That should not be much of a problem for the domestic violence soldiers since they have already raised so much towards their $16.5 million fundraising goal.

 

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Dallas Police Chief David Brown have recently sent out calls to action because of the myriad of life-threatening issues that their city is facing. They understand that it is going to take everyone making an effort in order to ease the bleeding, and thankfully there are a number of like-minded individuals in management positions which allow them to make charitable decisions like James Dondero did through this grant. At the same time, the business leaders of the future can leverage the firm’s Tower Scholars program.

 

H may have his hands full with a number of great things happening at the company as well. There are things like the new Korean health care fund which has Highland Capital Management’s fund managers in Asia looking for deals on the ground. There have already been so many commitments there, and South Korea’s National Pension Service (NPS) serves as the anchor investor which should have a lot of people interested. A lot has changed since the early 1990’s when Dondero co-founded his firm, and so many initiatives continue to benefit Dallas.

0

Posted by LLJ43 | Posted in Business Leader, Internet Expert | Posted on 22-05-2017

Increasingly, the Internet of Things is becoming a reality rather than something that is far off science fiction. Every day more and more everyday objects are wirelessly communicating with each other, and one leading technology research company says that by 2020 more than 25 billion devices will be able to do so.

Air travel is one of the areas where the Internet of Things is already being used in a number of different ways. The first improvement is safety. Virgin Atlantic uses Boeing 787s that have virtually every part of the plane connected via a wireless network. This network uses real-time tracking of all of the parts of the plane in order to detect problems so that they can be resolved as quickly as possible. Another way the Internet of Things is helping is improved customer service, with things such as easy check-in, personalized travel, and the Internet of Things tags being embedded in luggage tags in order to make it far easier to track.

Jason Hope is a futurist who made a fortune by being one of the first smartphone app developers. He now invests in startup technology companies that he sees are creating groundbreaking, disruptive new products and services. He lives in Scottsdale, Arizona and is a graduate of Arizona State University.

In addition to his passion for technology, Jason Hope is also passionate about giving back to the community. Jason Hope invests his time, skills, and effort in students who have promising ideas that could revolutionize the world.

Ken Goodrich Revives Goettl

Posted by LLJ43 | Posted in Air Conditioning Maintenance | Posted on 15-05-2017

Ken Goodrich is known for buying broken businesses and fixing them. This has been his specialty for several years. In the year 2013, the businessmen decided to purchase an air conditioning company known as Goettl. This was his sixteenth business. Goettl had operated in Phoenix area for several decades, but it was experiencing several problems.

 

Goettl was once a family business that was founded by two brothers, Adam and Gust Goettl. The company had changed its ownership several times too. When Ken Goodrich acquired it, nobody knew that he was going to make a successful business out of it. The previous owners had only operated it for five years.

 

In a recent interview, Ken Goodrich says that the moment he saw the company portfolio, he saw the common signs of a business that needs to be rescued. This is because there were no profits, and there was poor morale. The air conditioning company was also getting losses every time.

 

As the new owner of the business, the organization had to look for solutions to the problems the company was experiencing. The former owners were questioned because of their business practices, and something had to be done. First of all, the legal matter had to be settled in court, leaving public perception scars.

 

In the past, the businessman had never experienced the challenges he faced with Goettl. Consumer confidence was lacking, and the company had serious legal issues. This was a new territory, and he needed to concur it using a new approach. The businessman had to use a traditional technique to solve these problems. He first builds the morale within the company by emphasizing the unique needs of the employees and consumers. This simple strategy worked perfectly for him, and in a short duration, the company had gained the trust of the customers. The sales increased significantly.
