How Sheldon Lavin Got into Business Industry

Sheldon Lavin is the CEO, Chief Executive Officer of OSI Group. This company used to have a poor reputation in Europe and North America. However, Lavin has managed to improve the performance of OSI Group which has, in turn, earned it a good name. He has done this by investing some of the company’s earnings into environmental sustainability projects. This has resulted in the tremendous success of the OSI Group. Sheldon Lavin has won various awards following his leadership and the OSI Group Performance in the market. Lavin is also a famous philanthropist. He usually donates huge amounts of money to the Ronald McDonald House Foundation which is a charity organisation offering housing accommodations and amenities to families that are struggling with critical illnesses. He has great love and passion towards helping families all across the world.

Inspirery recently contacted Sheldon Lavin for a conversation regarding his service and success in OSI Group. Lavin is an outspoken person who never minds sharing his information and ideas to the world. He disclosed some of his secrets to success. First and foremost, Lavin was explained how he started his business and his inspiration towards starting it. Lavin noted that the idea began while he was still in school. He developed an interest to make some changes in the world after he attained various finance tricks in school. He was interested in companies that could provide food to the people and the essential products that are necessary on a daily basis. He decided to become a financial consultant since this was the only way that he could achieve his goal and turn his ideas into reality. Most companies needed consistent fund donations to maneuver and manage the stiff competition in the markets.

Sheldon Lavin knew that he was capable of helping these companies achieve their goals and objectives. However, he was not confident with himself, and he despised his potential during his initial stages in the market. He soon stabilised and gained confidence due to his success. He felt so good when he managed to get a contract with Otto & Sons. Otto & Sons was a small company that needed some capital to grow and expand its business. Lavin trusted in their potential towards success, and he later realised that he was right about it. One year down the line, Otto & Sons managed to expand across the United States of America. The early success was a great motivation that proved to Lavin that he had a talent and the potential to build and develop businesses.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: Going to Prison for American Rights

Journalists Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were trying to make Maricopa County, Arizona’s sheriff Joe Arpaio a national figure. They wanted to shame him in the eyes of the nation for his anti-Latino, anti-immigrant policing policies. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/ and https://frontpageconfidential.com/fbi-arrest-michael-lacey-jim-larkin/

Arpaio was harassing anyone who looked Latino and engaging in racial profiling, unlawful search and seizure, illegal detention, negligence and even brutality against inmates, resulting in injury or death, and many other racially-motivated misdeeds. A devout Republican and anti-Latino immigration figure, Arpaio was following the orders of FOXNews and other right-wing outlets.

Larkin and Lacey were both living in Arizona, using their position as co-owners of media outlet Village Voice as a tool to try and expose Arpaio and his departments’ activities. They were not getting the attention they wanted, but were becoming a thorn in Arpaio’s side.

Arpaio formed a secret Grand Jury to investigate Larkin and Lacey, even though he had no cause to suspect them of any actual crimes. When Larkin and Lacey learned of the Grand Jury’s existence, but not of its purpose, they published a story about it. Arpaio called this “interfering with a Grand Jury investigation” and ordered the two arrested on October 18th, 2007.

It was this arrest of Larkin and Lacey that finally got the national attention they had been seeking. The country began paying attention to what was happening in Arizona’s largest county, and Arpaio became an infamous celebrity. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

After 24 days in prison, Larkin and Lacey were finally released after a judge dismissed Arpaio’s charges against them and disbanded the Grand Jury on the grounds it had no reason to exist.

Arpaio lost his 2016 reelection campaign for sheriff, and afterwords was charged with crimes himself. He was found guilty, but before he could be sentenced, President Donald Trump pardoned him, making him a free man. Arpaio has since launched a Senate campaign, vying for the seat most recently held by John McCain. His campaign is not making much progress in Arizona, though Arpaio continues seeking the seat.

Larkin and Lacey used settlement money they received from Maricopa County to begin Frontera Fund, a non-profit first amendment advocacy group. Frontera especially spends time and resources defending the rights of journalists and Latinos, two groups that were specifically targeted by Arpaio and his department.

The two journalists also continue to be journalists, and report on current events including Arpaio’s campaign and fact-checking the Senate candidate.

Randal Nardone In a Time of Need…

In the unsteady world of business it is important to have belief in the company you choose to invest in. when things go wrong or investigations pop up this can shake the confidence in investors and even the workers of a company. Fortress Investment Group has faced such times with its chief executive officer Dan Mudd being sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission. This has paved the way for someone to step up and right the ship. The man for the job selected is Randal Nardone.

Randal Nardone at age 55 is a seasoned individual in the world of investing. He has had many titles in a few companies throughout his career including Director of Springleaf REIT Inc, Non Executive Director for Alea Group Holding Corp, and other positions including UBS and Blackrock. In Fortress Investment Group he has held the positions of Co-Founder as well as Principal and Director. Randal is also affiliated with over 20 other business and groups. He has received his Bachelors Degree from the University of Connecticut as well as has Junior Doctorate at Boston University School of Law.

Randal Nardone’s big claim came in 2007 when he graced the Worlds Billionaires list of Forbes Magazine. His ranking at number 557 was earned after Fortress Investment Group Initial Public Offering was released in 2007 giving him a net worth of 1.8 billion. The investment group now works upward of $43.6 billion and still making earnings to boost its worth.

In late 2017 Softbank purchased the outstanding shares of Fortress Investment Group for $3.3 billion in cash. After the transaction was completed Softbank decided it was best to keep the existing management team in place. This kept Randal Nardone in his place running the investment group as it will operate as in independent company. When ask on his thoughts of the purchase, Nardone was very optimistic about the deal. He believes it will help the company grow and strengthen them faster for the future. It would also allow them to gather greater credit sources. After the Softbank transaction Randal now operates with $69.6 billion in assets under his management between fixed income and private equity as well as permanent capital and credit hedge funds.

Randal Nardone has set himself as a leader in a time when Fortress Investment Group was indeed of one. We look forward to watching his continued success.
