Don Ressler Created Strategies to Make TechStyle Better

TechStyle has been a very successful company since they first started and that is due mostly to the fact that Don Ressler worked so hard at making different strategies for the brand. Because of the options that Don Ressler had for his company, he was able to make it better than what many of the other companies that were similar were able to do in the same time. It was something that set Don Ressler apart from other people and made things much better for people who needed to get everything that they could out of the brands that were related to TechStyle.

 

Don Ressler knew that starting a brand would be hard and it could be difficult to make brand recognition a possibility. He also knew that he would have to do something to make the brand better than what other people had going for them. There were many times when Don Ressler felt like he would need to make changes to the brand but the recognition aspect came when he found that there were celebrity endorsers who would be able to make the brand better and do more for the things that were going on in the business.

 

By positioning his company in an area like Silicon Valley, he was able to make sure that he would always have access to the newest technology. He wanted to be able to do this because it was such a big part of the company and because without new tech, the TechStyle companies would be pointless. Silicon Valley is a community and he knew that when he chose to go into the valley. By doing this, he gave himself a great chance at being able to try new things and get more out of the options that he had for technology within the brand.

 

The TechStyle brands have mostly been so successful because they provide people with something that they need: convenience. Don Ressler knew that most women and people in general needed to have convenient options that they could use when they were doing shopping for different needs that they had. By making the clothes shopping process as convenient as possible, Don Ressler did what he could to promote better branding and make things better for women around the country who wanted to be able to shop while they were doing new things. All of this added up and made the TechStyle brands extremely successful. https://www.linkedin.com/in/don-ressler-328b4618

Andrew Rolfe Saves Lives In Africa

As Chairman of the Ubuntu Fund, it was Andrew Rolfe’s responsibility to make sure the 10th Annual Ubuntu Fund Gala went smoothly. No surprise to anyone in attendance, everything went as planned and they even exceeded their funding goal and were able to raise over $900,000. This money is going to be used in the school system Ubuntu Fund created in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. This is an area ravished by poverty and crime, and the children there are often not provided with healthcare or given the opportunity to attend school. The Ubuntu Fund gives them hope and seeks to provide them with a safe space to learn and grow into successful adults. The organization intends to build a pediatric clinic right on the campus for any of their students to use. They are also going to increase in size so they are able to support more students who need help.

There were over 300 people that attended the gala dinner and every one of them was eager to do whatever they could to help these children in need. There were several people invited to speak at the event, and these people shared their stories about how the fund helped them and led them toward a brighter future. Sinesipho Rabidyani was one of these people, and she spoke about how she grew up in a poor family with an alcoholic father. She was awarded a scholarship by the Ubuntu Fund and was just recently accepted into law school. She attributes her success to the organization.

When Andrew Rolfe is not organizing galas and helping children through the Ubuntu Fund, he serves are the Senior Managing Director at Towerbrook Capital Partners.

How Securus Technologies Helps Locate Drugs in Jail

I am part of a team of corrections officers in a very crowded jail who have to do everything possible to keep the inmates from getting their hands on drugs. A normally calm inmate can do heroin or crack cocaine and turn into an animal. Under the influence of drugs, these inmates become extremely violent, often needing several officers to contain one inmate. Multiply that by a large amount of drugs and several inmates, and we could have a deadly situation on our hands.

 

To keep the drugs from ever getting into the hands of the inmates, we have to start our efforts at the inmate and visitor center. Each visitor is warned not to bring anything inside the jail for risk of imprisonment, and we check everyone thoroughly. Despite using electronic scanners and doing full-body searches, drugs still find their way into the jail. What we did have available to us was a newly updated inmate call monitoring system that would give us the ability to make more progress than ever before.

 

Securus Technologies installed the new monitoring system, and currently it is working in over 2,600 jails around the country. The CEO of this company, Richard Smith, talks about how all of his employees are committed to the objective of making this world safe for us all. Once my team learned how to use the LBS software, we were amazed at how fast we could collect information on illegal contraband in the jail.

 

Call after call, we started hearing chatter about inmates talking about selling drugs to other inmates, how drugs were brought into the jail, and who was on the outside helping inmates get their hands on contraband. Each day we are able to tighten up our facility and rid the system of drugs that used to infest this location.

 

He Plays. He Scores.

Meet Finance Manager Casio Audi, or should I say Rock Legend Drummer Cassio Audi? This new investment advisor was not always a finance expert. In fact, he was once a drummer for the popular band known around the world as none other than Viper – a band of teenage hooligans on a mission to change society with their music and lyrics. In fact, they were quite successful at one point. This heavy metal rock band is no longer around but they were once remembered for beating Nirvana off the charts. Popular songs included a Cry From the Edge, Be Hurt, Car Alarm, Come on Come on, Critical Overture, 30 White Boy, Do It All Again, Dreamer, HR, Illusions, Killera, Princes of Hell, Law of the Sword, Love is All, Miles Away, Moonlight, Nightmares, Prelude to Oblivion, Rising Sun, Sons of the Night, Soldier Boy, Soldiers of Sunrise, Theater of Fate, This is Real Hard-core, To Live Again, Violet the Whipper, At Least a Chance, Wings of the Evil and more.

Many demo albums were released as well, primarily from 1985 to 1987. Even though Audi left music in 1989 once and for all, he’s still considered an unforgettable musician. Many from past generations, and even today’s current music fans, know about him. Audi and his band have traveled Europe, Asia and the U.S. with their music. Viper played heavy-metal, thrash metal, alternative rock and power metal.

Audi would play the drums, “and he certainly played” as they say: He played, and he “scored” every single time. Viper originally got its name and inspired taste in rock through Iron Maiden, a British rock band of the ’80s. Audi is also fluent in both English and Spanish and speaks Portuguese well. He has acquired both his BS and his MBA in finances.
