The Mike Baur Effect On Startups

Being a successful entrepreneur and businessman comes with its own set of responsibilities. Mike Baur understood this even when he started his banking career at 16 years old, becoming one of the youngest apprentices at Union Bank of Switzerland. Working at this particular bank was a big deal, and often apprentices were given an entire timeline of expected promotions up until the day they retired. UBS was a career for most, yet for Baur it was a stepping stone. He worked for UBS from 1991 until 2008, breaking the expected timeline and looking to explore more compatible opportunities. The next stop in his life would bring him to Clariden Leu, where he worked for six years in a high ranking position. Like many of the visionaries in his field, Baur saw the changes that were taking place in the banking world and left in 2014. It was around this time that he became interested in giving back to the growing tech industry. He co-founded the Swiss Startup Factory with Max Meister in 2014, turning the ‘Incubator’ program into a promising tool for young Swiss entrepreneurs. It was the most successful program of its kind, and one that targeted a very important part of the industry.

With Baur’s guidance, the Swiss Startup Factory provides training, funding, mentoring and even office space to some of the brightest local minds. The assistance is generous, lasting up to three months with training. And in a climate where marketing can make or break a company, the educational process provided by Baur’s program is essential in guiding young minds in the right direction. In short, he found a way to raise the percentage of long term success in an area where many are expected to fail.

Baur didn’t shy away from hard work, and continued to improve the reach of the company. He was the juror on several contests that looked for potential upstarts. These pitching contests, many of them related to the START Summiteer, turned into the perfect platform for Baur. With his persistence, the Swiss Startup Factory gained even more recognition and credibility among the industry. Baur’s influence during this same time period is what led to him becoming the deputy managing director of CTI Invest. It was a familiar position with a completely different career trajectory, one that was put into motion by Baur himself. SSUF is diversified, modernized and independent, just like its co-founder Mike Bauer.

 

 

How Lori Senecal Became A Powerful Business Woman

When one looks at a business woman like Lori Senecal, they are going to see a lot of irony compared to what they are used to. One thing that people have become conditioned to look for in a leader is someone who is outspoken and is always very energetic. In other words, a leader, especially in the advertising industry, is going to command the attention of the audience. He is also going to be very eloquent and speak with a lot of power behind his words. With Lori Senecal, things are a little different. While she is still a powerful business woman, she is still someone who is a little unlike the stereotype of a leader.

This begs the question as to how this soft spoken leader managed to land her position in not only the latest job, CP+B. In order for one to look at how she has managed to hold her own as a leader, one must look no further than her work ethic. Lori Senecal is someone who has decided that she rather lead by example than just by words. She is very works oriented and will not put up with any nonsense. This is one of the reasons that the companies that she has taken over have gone through a lot of changes.

Lori is also someone who is very global minded. She thinks about advertising companies with not only how they can affect the community, but also how they can affect the world. She has always wanted to have a global reach with her advertising. This is one of the reasons that she has taken over the training of the workers so that they can be more efficient in what they are doing for their clients.Lori Senecal has always been someone who was more comfortable behind the scenes. At the same time, she has learned that being comfortable is not the best way to grow. She has spoken at various events and talked about her career and her companies while she was being interviewed. She has become very secure in who she is as a person.

  • Tax Status Report

 

The process Nationwide uses to obtain their data utilizes multiple sources, including the counties, and is verified by humans and automation, which assures compliance with the now stringently audited regulations in the United states. This process assures accurate results a client and lender can trust.

WhiteShark Media Customer Complaint FAQ

For the numerous years that White Shark Media has been around, we have received countless favorable reviews. However, we haven’t been without our share of negative criticism either. Only years of experience can allow a company to start from scratch that will produce little to no complaints from customers.

Through mistakes that come through trial-and-error, we have been able to learn from some of the feedback that would allow us to improve. We have paid for some errors in the past, but have managed to come back as a better service each time.

Here are some of our common complaints that customers have:

“I’ve lost touched with my AdWords campaign”

This one hurt us a lot. White Shark Media realized that we were setting up small business owners to fail due to not setting up proper reporting procedures. Now we prevent this by letting each individual client know every detail about what is going on. When you know your campaign before it takes off, you’ll be more likely to have an idea of where you want to take it.

“I don’t feel like the communication is good enough.”
Our most vital task is communicating. This task is as equally as important as delivering adequate results to our customers. In our early days, getting in contact with clients was more difficult, and was often done through a receptionist.  Learn more about White Shark Media Complaints:

https://disqus.com/home/channel/whitesharkmediacomplaints/discussion/channel-whitesharkmediacomplaints/white_shark_media_complaints/
We can now prevent this with a new communications procedure. One time each month, or at the client’s discretion, they may review statistics from the past month. We allow this by using GoToMeeting, a web conference tool. This was highly received by customers who had been working with us before we enacted this new policy.

“I would love it if you offered SEO services”
We don’t have any plans for search engine optimization services at this time. his doesn’t mean that we are unable to differentiate between a good SEO company and a bad one. If you want to prevent financial loss at the hands of SEO vendors, we would love to take a look at any SEO suggestions that you had in mind. You can contact the SEM Strategist, and they will ask a member of our senior staff to approve it.

Stephen Murray: A Succesful CEO of CCMP & Human Being in Life

Life is full of choices, which is something that Stephen P. Murray understood. He made the right choices to further his career. He passed away on March 12, 2015, but he will be remembered for many things. One thing that he may be remembered for is being the president of CCMP Capital, but he was much more than that. Learn more about Stephen Murray CCMP Capital: http://fortune.com/2015/03/13/ex-ccmp-capital-ceo-steve-murray-passes-away/
Who Was Stephen P. Murray?

Being the president of CCMP Capital was one of Murray’s great accomplishments in life. After all, CCMP Capital is a very successful private equity firm that focuses on buyout and growth equity transactions.

But Stephen Murray had to walk down a very long road to get where he wanted to go. For one, he graduated from Boston College in 1984 as an eager student. He earned his degree in economics. Murray took his passion even further because in 1989 he got his master’s in business administration at the Columbia Business School.

Not a moment passed after Murray got his first degree that he participated in the credit analyst training program at Manufacturers Hanover Corporation. Murray definitely garnered a lot of experience here, which he continued to use and develop. Learn more about Stephen Murray CCMP Capital: http://patch.com/connecticut/stamford/stephen-p-murray-52-financial-executive-stamford-resident-vice-chair-boston-college-board-trustees

In 1989–when Murray got his second degree–the MH Equity Corporation welcomed him with arms wide open. The MH Equity Corporation combined Manufacturers Hanover’s private equity group with its own leverage finance team.

This turned out to be a lesson in business transactions and monumental changes, since Manufacturers Hanovers was purchased by Chemical Bank in 1991 while MH Equity got absorbed by Chemical Venture Partners. Remember that this was just a few years after Murray joined these companies. And, as if that was not enough change, Chemical Bank joined Chase Manhattan Corporation back in 1996. This was the point when Chemical Venture Partners morphed into Chase Capital Partners.

Stephen Murray was there to witness all those changes, and he flourished under pressure, becoming the head of a buyout business at JP Morgan Partners. In 2006, Murray formed the company he is known for as an extension of JP Morgan Partners, and one year after that, he became the CEO.

Stephen was also known for having a big heart, since he vigorously supported the Make-a-Wish foundation. But, perhaps, he will be remembered mostly as being a wonderful husband to his wife Tami and an excellent father to four great kids. The point is Stephen left a legacy and will be remembered for it.

Who Is White Shark Media?

White Shark Media is a top of the line marketing company who has catapulted the marketing industry because of their approach to business and advertising. The best thing about this company is their versatile approach that helps deliver results, but they weren’t always this successful.

It took them time in order to see change develop within their brand. Having dealt with angry customers at some point, it took them time to learn from their mistakes and see what it is that they struggled with. White Shark Media is by far one of the best marketing agencies because they have learned from their mistakes from scratch.

White Shark Media is ultimately more than ready to start getting your brand and company up and running in the right direction. They truly know and understand what they are doing and what they are capable of.

Glass Door authoritatively gathered that the company was once at a very struggling position because they didn’t know how to best work with clientele. The truth is that White Shark Media works very closely nowadays with their talent and professionals. In fact, they work closely with them in a way that their consultants can help give weekly, monthly, or even daily updates if they are needed to the client to better help assess their needs.

The Youtube video says that working mainly in Pay Per click advertising, they know how to get a brand seen by all the right people via the search engines and in other marketing platforms. The best thing to think about with this company is that they know and understand how to reach out and get your brand seen by your target audience.

Their understanding in the world of marketing expands farther than you think. White Shark Media is definitely a very successful brand that can work with a company from the ground up to build a professional presence that delivers results.

If you need more opt-ins, more customers, more viewers, or even just more chances of being seen by a more targeted audience daily, they can help you out no matter what kind of budget you may have. Their understanding of different marketing strategies means they can help get you on the right path and help you grow in the right place.

With CEO Shaygan Kheradpir Coriant Upgrades Key Systems

Coriant has operations and customers throughout the world across 100 countries. The company builds custom networks and other computing infrastructures that client companies build their information processing services upon. These days Coriant has a new CEO and a new direction in upgrades. The man moving the action forward is new CEO Shaygan Kheradpir. The goal is to provide their clients with new technologies that make business processing speed significantly faster while also making it less interruptible by systems down time.

Kheradpir will address issues with clients lagging behind with older, slower, and less reliable systems technology. These clients include government agencies, industrial manufacturers, and all sorts of commerce. His plan is to upgrade all of their networks and computing services to cloud technology and Packet-Optical Transport Systems (POTS). Not only does POTS provide much higher speeds of data transfer, they are also very fault-tolerant. So, recovery from failures can be effected while normal operations are still maintained. To get things going he has laid out goals with measurable milestones.

Coriant has supplied systems integration with products from major suppliers for over 35 years. Some of the suppliers they use include Tellabs, Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), and Sycamore Networks corporation. Their clients include clouds, data centers, fixed-line providers, and content producers. Many of the leading Communications Service Providers (CSPs) rely on Coriant services. Not only will these new upgrades bring solutions with less headaches, they will also reduce operating costs.

As well as CEO, Shaygan Kheradpir is also Coriant’s board Chairman. The company benefits from his 28 years in the industry, where he has gained valuable insight into networking, telecoms, and finance. His executive position while managing the $20 million FiOS nation-wide implementation of fiber for Verizon is one of his major accomplishments. At GTE he was also in an executive role.

Kheradpir has a Ph.D from Cornell University, where he also earned his Masters. He has a BS in engineering and at that time was part of the advisory board at Cornell’s Engineering Council.
