The success and growth of a company is not only dictated by the team that works for the company but also the leadership of the company. Proper administration lays the foundation as to how each department is to carry out their duties regardless of the workforce. An example of a company that runs like a well-oiled machine thanks to its leadership is InnovaCare Health. Apart from setting itself apart from a competitive health service sector in North America, InnovaCare Health has also received recognition for its professionalism and adequate provision of healthcare services to its members.
The vision of Innovacare is to offer its clients cost-effective and reliable plans and models when it comes to health care. These plans and models are designed with the perspective that Innovacare always upholds quality when providing health care services. These plans and models also help to enforce their objectives as a company when it comes to building long-lasting relationships with clients. The man behind these ideals and principles is Dr. Richard Shinto. He is the President, Chairperson, and Chief Executive Officer of Innovacare. He has worked at NAMM California as the Chief Medical Officer. He has also worked at Aveta Inc. as the Chief Executive Officer, and he held this position until 2012.
The beginning of his career in the Medicine world began at California University where he graduated, and he later moved to the State University of New York and then graduated with a medical degree. His vast knowledge about Medicine and his remarkable leadership has earned him plenty of awards. Some of them he has earned include the Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare Award. He also received the Access to Caring Award.
Another leader we cannot lack to mention when talking about Innovacare is Penelope Kokkinides. She is the Chief Administrative Officer. She previously worked as the Chief Operating Officer before rejoining InnovaCare Health in June 2015 and receiving her current position. When it comes to running health care programs, she has invaluable experience, and this has made it possible for her to contribute to the success of InnovaCare. She also has an enormous amount of knowledge in the management and development of health care operations. Her knowledge makes it possible for her to run and contribute the organization appropriately.

Sunday Riley is releasing the perfect present just in time for the holidays! The Early Access kit will be launched on Monday, November 19 and only 1000 happy-few will be able to purchase it. It contains three products, none of which are available in the United States yet.
First, you will be able to try the newly reformulated version of Good Genes, a liquid exfoliator and “all-in-one glycolic acid treatment” which has already made a splash across the pond. It promises to repair damaged skin to offer a “visibly radiant, healthier looking complexion”. The second of the product has yet to be released to the general public (that is scheduled for January 2019). It is called A+ and is described as a “high dose retinoid serum” which will help your skin achieve a more youthful look by improving the signs of premature aging. Finally, you will be able to test the newest member of the C.E.O. family, C.E.O. Glow, a “vitamin C and turmeric facial oil” to “brighten, hydrate and glow” which will be released in March 2019. Sunday Riley Early Access Kit will retail for $185, so it is a nice Christmas present, but given that the total value of the full-size products is estimated at $230, it is not a bad deal after all.
Sunday Riley is a Houston, Texas based skin care brand which was launched in 2009 by (you guessed it) Sunday Riley. She has made her mission to create formulas only including the highest quality actives in order to offer extremely effective products (hence the price). She has a devoted following which includes some of the best-known influencers. Like the rest of her products, the Early Access Kit is sure to sell out fast.

Once considered the don of the badminton game, Gareth Henry has enjoyed his prime years as a big superstar in the court. Jamaicans are known to be patriotic, always celebrating successes that place the country on the front page. This changes when you hold a different opinion on contentious matters such as homosexuality. Living in a cocoon of sexual captivity, Gareth Henry always wanted to experience freedom. This came to be when he turned 16 years. With the help of his uncle, Gareth escaped home to a new town where nobody knew him. This specific moment defined the man he is today. During this time he attended Titchfield High School where he graduated.
Afterwards, he relocated to Kingston where he enrolled for a bachelor’s degree in social work at Excelsior community college. Upon completion, he took an advanced degree in communications for behavioral change from the university of the West Indies. In 1997 after graduating, he began volunteering for the JASL- a rights advocate for individuals who are suffering from HIV/AIDS. While working for JASL, he came across colleagues who were never threatened by the society’s definition of a “batty man”. Later, Gareth Henry and other individuals created the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All-sexuals and Gays (J-FLAG). This was the first organization that advocated for the rights of the LGBTQ community.
After its inception in 1998, Gareth began volunteering with the idea that he could change the perception created by other individuals who despised the idea of homosexuality. On June 9 2004, seven years after its inception, their leader Brian Williamson was stabbed in what was primarily viewed as a homophobic attack. With fear grappling them that they could be next, Gareth Henry decided to give an interview on some of the troubles they go through as members of the LGBTQ community. By December 2004, Gareth had assumed office as the director of J-FLAG. To him, this was the beginning of his troubles. At one occasion, he remembers he and other members were peacefully matching to create awareness to their issues when a mob met them. With fear, they ran to a local pharmacy where they hid for some minutes before police came. Instead of offering to help, the police began brutalizing them for being “batty men.”

Additionally, one should invest after having identified a reliable and competent partner to manage their investments. Fortress Investment Group is one such institution that offers operations controlling, investments based on assets and capital markets as well as profitmaking mergers and procurements. In that case, clients seeking any of these services can approach the group for guidance as it has a remarkable reputation.

Most businesses don’t survive incubation and the few that do often fail a few years after take-off. However, OSI Industries has for the past 100 years overcome numerous growth-impeding challenges as well as competition to emerge top among the world’s top meat producers and distributors.
Having started as a migrant-run butchery in Chicago, the meat distributor currently boasts of an established presence in 17 countries across the world where the company employees over 20,000 employees to run its 65 facilities. But how did the company survive for a century in this highly competitive market?
OSI Industries attributes most of its success to continued innovation in all its spheres of operation. To a large extent, this involves the adoption of cutting-edge technology in the processing and distribution of company products. The food processor first embraced used advanced technology as a method of cutting down on operating costs but sustained the idea of constantly evolving, technologically, as it impacted the company’s overall efficiency.
The food processor has faced numerous challenges that threatened the existence and sustainability of the OSI brand. These ranged from financial crisis to loss of critical markets, but its management has always found a way to overcome either. For instance, the company once lost a key meat supply deal with McDonalds. The company’s leadership under Otto’s Sons and its current CEO Sheldon Lavin found a way of recapturing and expanding this market tenfold.
Diversification and expansion
Surviving the competitive market and making to the list of top ten meat processors and distributors in the world also demanded that the company diversifies and expands operations. At first, OSI Industries would settle on a key market and lay down plans on how to establish new facilities and groundwork for market capture. However, competition would soon force the company to reconsider this expansionary technique and instead bank on acquiring already established brands in the new markets.
Apart from internal challenges like capital and technology, OSI Industries has also faced numerous other challenges inherent to the global meat market. However, it has withered them all and lived to celebrate a century since its start of operations as a corner butcher shop in downtown Chicago.
JHSF Participacoes SA is one of the companies that has been in the real estate industry in Brazil for about four decades now. It started as a construction company before growing into a top company that shaped the direction of the real estate developments in the country. Currently, the company has large projects which are changing the real estate landscape in the country. For instance, in the city of Sao Paulo, the company is behind some of the biggest real estate projects. JHSF has been building the largest real estate projects for the past one decade. It deals with high-end projects that can only be afforded by high-income earners. They have been in commercial as well as residential building platforms.
JHSF is currently under the management of Jose Auriemo Neto, one of the brilliant minds in this industry. The fact the JHSF is considered one of the biggest companies in Brazil has all to do with the impact of Jose Auriemo Neto. For the last two decades, there have been key real estate projects that have been created. These projects can be seen in Sao Paulo, Salvador, and Manus. There are high-end shopping complexes in these cities that have been built by JHSF. Under the leadership of Jose Auriemo Neto, the company has also invested in the international real estate market. They have investments in the United States and Uruguay. According to José Auriemo who is the Chairman and CEO of the company, the plan is to reach every global city in the world.

No one can ever predict a natural disaster, and the United States has had their share of them. The people of Puerto Rico, for example, are still dealing with the aftermath left behind by the hurricane that ravaged the island. Families are still without power and some without water, but the people of this island are fighting together. This is something the people of Houston are also dealing with because they are fighting against the aftermath left behind by Hurricane Harvey. This Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in 2017, and it left a lot of devastation. Many people in the state lost their homes and livelihoods.
It is strange but also heartwarming to see how people naturally help each other when tragedy strikes. The city was full of people who helped others during this time of need. It was heartwarming to see people offer each other shelter and monetary assistance. Humanity shined when churches lived up to the teachings they believe in, and it was beautiful to see organizations like the Houston Food Bank really make a difference when it was needed. Houston even saw businesses step up to the plate and help, such as Nabors Industries. The CEO of this company, Tony Petrello, made sure their company helped Houston out.
Of course, Tony Petrello knew that his company was not going to solve every problem, but that did not stop him or his company from helping in whatever way they could. One thing the people of Houston truly appreciated was the company’s large kitchen. In this kitchen large meals were prepared every day to feed people who needed food. The people were able to eat three meals a day, which definitely gave people one less thing to worry about. This gave people enough energy to continue helping others and neighborhoods to rebuild their lives.
Tony Petrello has helped the communities in many ways before. The company has been instrumental in several community projects and has also donated money to ensure Houston’s prosperity. What the company was providing in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey was just an extension of the kinds of acts the company already did for Houston. It is pretty obvious that people care about good corporate citizens now more than ever before. Some could say that the actions taken by this company were just done to promote the company, but those who know Petrello and those working with him will say these individuals are just naturally good-hearted.
Petrello sponsored his employees by providing paid leave to help at the Gulf Coast and to help feed people. Some employees tended to their families and their friends as they were affected by the hurricane. These employees were given the freedom to do what was in their heart without worrying about paychecks, thanks to Tony Petrello.
