Wes Edens Adds a Soccer Team to His Collection

Wes Edens has added to the sporting teams he has an interest in. Edens is already the co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA, and now he is the 55% majority co-owner of the English soccer team Aston Villa. Wes Edens made his name as the founder of Fortress Investment Group. It is an asset management company that has a wide portfolio of assets that includes healthcare and media interests.

Wes Edens has partnered with Egyptian billionaire Nassef Sawiris to take control of Aston Villa. The club has a long history in English soccer, and it had great success in the 1970s and 1980s. Up until recently it was a member of the Premier league, but for two years it has been in the league below that one. It is called the championship. The top teams at the end of each season go back to the Premier league and that is where Edens sees the club in the near future. Aston Villa was one game away from a return last year.

The club was only bought in 2016 by Tony Xia, but he has now sold the majority share to Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris for 30 million pounds ($39 million). Xia will retain a position on the board of the club. It is a move not uncommon to English soccer clubs, and teams like Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been bought by foreign billionaire investors in the last few years.

Edens not only brings his knowledge of pro sports to the deal, but he also has his long and successful career in business to help. He knows that the money that the Premier league brings means that it is the rightful place for a club like Aston Villa to occupy. Wes Edens knows that this will take a substantial financial contribution, but he hopes it will happen as early as next year.

Carlos Alberto de Oliveira- The Founder of CAOA

Carlos Alberto de Oliveira launched CAOA in 1979. This was after he made an order for a Ford Landau via a Ford Dealership that was based in Campina Grande. Things took a different turn as the dealership got bankrupt even before they had delivered his vehicle. On seeing this, Carlos Alberto decided to take advantage of this situation and suggested for the ownership of the company transfer to him to compensate for his payment for the vehicle. This is the root origin of CAOA. Dr. Carlos earned great recognition as an entrepreneur right after the founding of CAOA. He took over the management of this business.

The company grew and started to import Renault cars in 1992. It experienced immense growth and development and became the absolute and official importer of Renault vehicle in Brazil. CAOA was featured in position five in the automotive industry and position one in imported vehicles. CAOA diversified to the importation of Subaru vehicles (Japanese brand) in 1998 via Dr. Carlos effort. The cars had multiplied thrice within one year of sale of Subaru cars. The representation of Hyundai South Korean Vehicles didn’t succeed. This made Dr. Carlos come up with a strategy when CAOA took over cars importation. His approach helped to make Hyundai the leading brand in the market.

The first Hyundai factory was inaugurated in 2007. It was Dr. Carlos lifetime dream to own an automobile manufacture factory. Carlos utilized his resources to create the firm which drove him towards winning an award as the best entrepreneur of the year. Besides, the fir inaugurated both its energy and Research Center. The primary objective of the center was research on engines and vehicles inclusive of fuels for the new models. CAOA has managed to win many other wards such as the Most Admired and the best distributor of the Year. Dr. Carlos recently signed an agreement with Chinese Chery. The partnership will help to make both companies combine their efforts. Advanced Technologies is among the most critical factors of CAOA as it will help the firm to attain high standards for sales and improve their sales experience.

Shervin Pishevar points to large competitive advantage of China

Shervin Pishevar has become one of the most renowned venture capitalists of the last two decades. His firm, Investment company, has been behind the formation of some of the top names in the tech industry, including Virgin Hyperloop, Uber and Airbnb.

When Shervin Pishevar is not busy building and financing the most successful companies in the tech industry, he runs one of the most heavily followed Twitter feeds of any figure in Silicon Valley. His more than 100,000 followers look forward to his opinions on a wide range of topics.

In a recent tweet storm that lasted nearly 21 hours, Shervin Pishevar broached the topic of America’s failing relative competitiveness relative to other great powers like China. He said that some of the frictions that exist within the U.S. systems simply don’t exist at all in the Chinese economy. And this, he says, is likely to lead to the eventual permanent loss of global hegemony of the United States. In fact, argues Shervin Pishevar, it may eventually lead to the total ruination of the country and its descent into Third World status.

Shervin Pishevar says that the monocultural China, which is dominated almost exclusively by the highly intelligent and capable Han people, has none of the huge problems of diversity that the United States is currently grappling with. He says that this is evident in everything from manufacturing to the navies of both countries. Shervin Pishevar points to recent severe embarrassments caused by U.S. Navy capital ships running into other vessels and otherwise demonstrating shockingly incompetent seamanship. Pishevar says that these incidents were probably attributable largely to diversity among sailors and the ever-lowering standards for entrance into critical positions within the U.S. Armed Forces.

He says that global rivals like China and Russia are quietly belly laughing at these flubs, preparing for the day when U.S. carrier groups are simply unable to defend against the serious and highly competent militaries of the East, which still have enormously high and rigorous standards for their officer classes.

Pishevar says that the United States is increasingly becoming a vast global joke.
