Marc Beer was pretty happy that the investors included a mix of old and new investors in his company. They could see the value of his company’s commercial and clinical vision which is all about supporting women who suffer from pelvic floor disorders. These types of disorders result from their organs pushing down on their vagina and results in a lack of bladder control and fecal incontinence.

The lack of bladder control due to pelvic floor disorder is pretty common across the globe Mark Beer says. His company, which is based in Boston, MA, has a product called Leva on the market that helps women with this disorder. They learn how to correctly perform pelvic floor muscle exercises. About 33 percent of women do these exercises incorrectly which can cause further problems if anything.

It’s estimated that over 60 percent of women age 60 and older have bladder control issues. However, their pelvic muscles can be strengthened just like any other muscle which reduces and even eliminates this problem. There are interconnected muscles in the pelvic area that, when strengthened, lead to much better bladder control.

Marc Beer is a member of the 1987 graduating class of Miami University. He entered the pharmaceutical industry in 1988 when he became the director of sales training and development at Abbott. Six years later he was a vice president at Biostar, Inc., and in May 2000 he first became a chief executive officer at ViaCell.

He has been the chairman of the board for three pharmaceutical firms which are Myolex, Good Start Genetics, and Minerva Technologies. He co-founded Renovia in August 2016. More recently, he co-founded another firm which is LumeNXT. This company creates surgical devices and is a leader in the non-tethered LED illumination field. Their product is the only device of its kind that is battery powered and offers safe and effective lighting to be used during surgical procedures.

 

CEO Sheldon Lavin Is World Recognized Leader In Developing Corporate Sustainability Practices

More than 40 years ago Sheldon Lavin was a banker. He was keen on a certain, aggressive meat-processing company known as Otto & Sons. This Chicago-area operation was partnered with none other than McDonald’s. The iconic fast food restaurant was poised to become one of the largest corporations in America. Otto & sons were along for the ride as its primary supplier of fresh beef.

Sheldon Lavin liked what he saw as an investment expert. He was eager to provide the financing Otto & Sons needed for an ambitious growth strategy. They even asked Mr. Lavin to come on board with an ownership stake in the early 1970s. He initially declined, but finally relented in 1975 when he became an official managing partner.

The year 1975 was the same year that Otto & Sons became OSI Industries — a company that has since become one of the largest food processing enterprises in the world. It was Sheldon Lavin who masterminded an investment strategy that would fuel OSI’s overseas expansion plan. Lavin became chairman and CEO of OSI a few years later. He still holds that position today.

OSI Industries is presently listed by Forbes to be #58 on its tally of largest privately-owned American companies. OSI reports annual revenues north of $6 billion. It now has 65 facilities operating in 17 countries around the world.

Especially during the past decade, Sheldon Lavin has made sustainability an extreme focus as he shepherds OSI into an ever-expanding future of growth. He realizes that — in a world that needs to feed more than 7 billion hungry people — finding ways to preserves the food-production environment through wise use of resources is critical.

The process is raising animals for meat production grows more challenging every year. The amount of agricultural land is being stressed by increased demand from urban expansion, a changing climate and other factors. A huge part of the equation is the world’s fresh water supply and availability. It needs to be used wisely and kept clean. World governments are also pressuring companies to lower their carbon footprint and use not only less energy, but more green energy.

Sheldon Lavin may be one of the oldest and longest lasting CEOs in America, but he is leading the way in showing how an energy-intensive company like OSI can actually be among the most environmentally efficient operations on the planet.

Talos Energy Continues Momentous Push Off Of Gulf Coast.

While it is undeniably true that the gas and oil energy industry is struggling right now, there are a few companies that seem to be taking the issues in stride. Among the leaders in the industry, a private company out of Houston, TX known as Talos Energy LLC has continued to build momentum. Just over the past year, Talos Energy was able to push into the Gulf of Mexico in order to become the first private investor in an offshore well that came from outside of Mexico’s own borders. This momentous occasion, which gave real clout to the upstart energy company, seems to have marked a real push into the future for the team lead by President and CEO, Tim Duncan.

Tim Duncan was on hand at the recent WoodMac annual exploration awards this past June in order to receive the latest honor heading to Talos Energy. Talos Energy scored the ‘Discovery Of The Year Award’ for 2017 in honor of their work on the Zama-1 Well. The Zama-1 Well stole headlines throughout the industry, all over the world, when Mexico announced that a trio of companies would be leading the investment and that one of those companies was from America. Talos Energy holds a 35% stake in the Zama-1 Well and expectations are that the well should be able to produce nearly 2 billion total barrels of oil, an eye-popping number.

Tim Duncan is one of three co-founders at the Houston-based energy company. Joined by Steve Heitzman and John Parker, Tim aimed Talos directly at the offshore oil drilling industry when they first decided upon the idea. Their goal was to expand not only throughout American-controlled rigs, but also into the waters of other countries, thus leading to their bid on the Zama-1 Well.

Despite the negative downturn in the oil and gas industry, Duncan and his team at Talos have managed to weather it well. Duncan explains that their continued success in the rocky industry is due to the fact that they are always hedging their portfolio, thus insulating the company from some of the major risks that are intrinsic to the industry.

How GreenSky is Embracing Technology

If you’re not already familiar with GreenSky , it is one of the ten biggest Fintech companies in the United States, according to Forbes.com. The company is also ranked number 17 on CNBC’s disruptor 50 lists in recognition of their contributions to the financial industry. As far as their financial standing, GreenSky , at last check, has a valuation in the neighborhood of $3.6 billion, and given their growth in recent years, this number is expected to continue to climb.

In addition to their impressive valuation figures, GreenSky  operates through a network of 17,000 merchant retailers and is also backed by Fifth Third Bank, the principal subsidiary of Fifth Third Bancorp, which is one of the largest banks in the U.S.

Co-founded by Larry Smith and David Zalik, GreenSky  has positioned themselves to be a mobile-first company. This commitment has enabled the consumer finance company to allow customers the option of initiating a loan through the convenience of a smartphone. To say this is groundbreaking would be an understatement; however, this progressive move to further embrace technology is what differentiates GreenSky from other consumer finance companies.

Cognizant of the conveniences that come with “smartphone lending,” Co-founder David Zalik admits that there was a time when initiating a loan without being in the presence of the lender would have been unfathomable; however, he also states that times are changing, and GreenSky is a company that is committed to keeping pace with new industry trends, provided they align with the company’s goals.

Now that we have some background information on GreenSky , let’s take a closer look at what it means to initiate a loan from a smartphone. According to company information, this process streamlines the loan process while placing the consumer in the proverbial driver’s seat.

To submit a loan application, a consumer would need to download the GreenSky app to their smartphone, and from there, they will scan their driver’s license and provide their date of birth and social security number. Once the necessary data has been submitted, GreenSky  will conduct a loan evaluation. Provided the loan is approved, customers will receive their loan details, which include an APR and the complete terms of their loan.

Now, Terpins is focused on expanding his entrepreneurial empire with a foray into environmentally friendly wood production.

 

Rodrigo Terpins has always believed that the key to success is working hard, moving fast and staying ahead of your competition. It is perfectly reasonable that Rodrigo ended up working in the rally car racing sport alongside his older brother Michel. After ascending to the top of the sport with his big win in the Sertoes Rally, Terpins is once again pushing his focus and that of his fans onto the work that he is doing as a businessman. Right now, Rodrigo is being very attentive to cultivating his company Floresvale.

 

Floresvale is an environmentally friendly wood production company that specializes in certified wood that is harvested and grown through sustainable means. Rodrigo believes that the Brazilian wood industry is in desperate need of some level of reformation and his big problem is that many production companies are not harvesting with sustainability in mind.

Rodrigo is paying attention to many different industries, as all entrepreneurs should, and he is focused on the concepts that continue to rise toward the top.
