As one of the world’s largest and most successful alternative asset management firms, Fortress Investment Group has developed a reputation in financial industry that could accurately be described as legendary. The firm was founded back in 1998. Its three co-founders are Wes Edens, Rob Kauffman and Randal Nardone. Today, Fortress Investment Group has offices located across the globe in critical financial markets and has been a publically traded company since the 2007 calendar year. Fortress Investment Group has had many seminal moments throughout its existence and there have been many significant accomplishments and milestones, but perhaps the biggest one came recently when the company was acquired by the Japanese company SoftBank.
When SoftBank and Fortress Investment Group announced the massive news that the Japanese firm would be taking over the investment management giant, the financial world was excited to see what would happen next. One thing is certain, the public face of Fortress will remain the core of Wes Edens, Randal Nardone and Peter Briger as the company’s heads will continue to run their world renowned financial operation in an as usual manner. There will be certain regulations in place that prevent SoftBank from taking a more hands-on approach, but at the end of the day, the business arrangement suits officials from both companies quite well.
The reasons that SoftBank wanted to acquire a firm with the financial industry clout that Fortress Investment Group has are numerous. One reason that particularly stands out is the fact that SoftBank had wanted to enter into the investment management sector for some time. Being able to acquire Fortress was huge for SoftBank in this regard because it is such an easy way for SoftBank to get into this business by acquiring a firm that already has the entire package accounted for. Fortress gains the benefit of having the Japanese giant behind them. It is a win, win for everyone involved.

“A Glimpse into What Drives Atlanta Entrepreneur Dr. Mark McKenna” is a way for people to understand some of the motives that drive this talented entrepreneur and physician. From an early age, he knew that he wanted to find a way to integrate everything that he loved about business in medicine. He found that he had a very strong desire to work in real estate. Real estate seems to be a good fit for him for a few years, but his business was based in New Orleans and it was hit by Hurricane Katrina. After helping with the relief efforts in the area, Dr. Mark McKenna believed that it was time for him to relocate his family to Atlanta. In Atlanta, he began to focus more heavily on his medical practice. This is when he came up with the idea to integrate his love of real estate, business, and medicine into one beautiful organization called OVME aesthetics.
OVME aesthetics is pronounced “of me” for reason. The eventual goal of the elective surgery practiceis to allow patients to be more assertive in their medical goals. One way to do this is by offering patients the opportunity to visit with their physicians in their private homes and offices. This will allow them to have the best of both worlds. They will not have to deal with the cumbersome nature of an in-office visit and they don’t have to cancel important meetings or family time. The use of aesthetic servicesis growing but people are wanting it on their individual terms.
Dr. Mark McKenna believes that he can develop something through app technology to help with that goal. He hopes to even help people obtain consultations through this software so that they can make decisions about their medical care. This would allow them to schedule visits without ever coming into the office for any type of pre-workup. What motivates Dr. Mark McKenna to do well in his industry is the exciting potential available for his patients. He wants them to receive the procedures and consultations that they are looking for in a way that it is convenient for them.
