Travel on a Budget

Sergey Petrossov Targets Commercial Flying

SERGEY PETROSSOV

Sergey Petrossov is the founder and CEO of a company called JetSmarter. There are many people who have to fly on commercial plans on a regular basis. This experience can be frustrating and downright stressful. There are too many flights that are canceled and delayed due to weather issues, staffing problems, and mechanical issues. Furthermore, the security lines at the airport can delay people to the point that they might even miss their flight. Finally, the food at the airport and on the plane, itself is not appetizing. There are many people who are looking for an alternative to flying on a commercial plane. Sergey Petrossov and JetSmarter might offer a suitable alternative.

This young CEO created an app that people can use to book a private plane. Yes, private jet travel does sound like something that is reserved for people who only have a large sums of money. At the same time, his company has already grown by leaps and bounds. It is worth more than $1 billion. As a result, more people than ever before are using private planes. This has led to the cost of a seat on one of these private planes to drop to lower levels than They ever have before. In some cases, a tiok it on a private plane might only cost the same as a seat on a flight in business class.

SERGEY PETROSSOV

Sergey Petrossov is already one of the most successful CEOs; however, he has not done yet. He has big plans for his company. As the price continues to drop, he wants to push the envelope in the commercial travel industry as well. This may change the way that the commercial travel industry is structured. For the people who have to fly on a regular basis and deal with the frustrations, this would probably come as a welcome change. It will be interesting to watch this company continue to develop over the coming years.

OSI Group and McDonalds Explore Meatless Burgers

Meatless or plant-based burgers are becoming popular among fast-food restaurants and retailers in North America, Israel and Germany. Burger King, for an example, introduced its grilled meatless burger in the United States in August 2019. McDonald’s Restaurants in Germany and Israel are marketing its veggie burger by Awesome Burger. CNBC reported last month the restaurant chain began testing P.L.T. plant-based patties on September 30th in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. OSI Group, one of the largest international meat processors signed a contract with Impossible Foods to co-manufacture its meatless burgers. McDonalds and OSI Group has history dating back to 1955 when the company became the restaurant’s first supplier.

The Canadian testing of the McDonald’s P.L.T. burger will end December 23, which is 12 weeks after the start date. The results of the test will determine the impact of demand and operations in serving Beyond Burger, a plant-base patty made with pea protein. Sources are assuming the restaurant chain in Canada is using the brand because of its ties to McDonald’s Corporation. The former CEO of the restaurant chain, Don Thompson invested into the brand and continues to sit on its Board of Directors. Analysts are questioning whether the P.L.T. meatless burger will make the permanent item list at Canadian McDonalds restaurants. An analyst with Morningstar believes the test means nothing without testing in the United States which is coming in 2020.

With differences in opinions, it is up to the consumers’ demand for the plant-based burgers in North America. In Canada, 28 restaurants are participating in the promotional & testing of the Beyond Burger brand. OSI Group started processing the Impossible burgers in August of this year at multiple plants in the US. Papa John’s, Subway, Starbucks, and Burger King rely on the meat processor as a supplier for its meats and food items. The long-term relationship between McDonald’s and OSI extends over 60 years. Burger King introduced its Impossible meatless burgers shortly after OSI announced its co-manufacturing contract with Impossible Foods. The question most food industry analysts are asking is when will McDonald’s restaurants in the US launch its plant-based burgers.

Win Win!

It’s another win win day for all as Highland Capital’s James Dondero has made another outstanding contribution to the Dallas Zoo, not his first and certainly not his last as he proudly noted. This successful equity philanthropist has proudly contributed to many causes when and where he found fit, and his very first made to the Dallas Zoo was back in 2001. Then, he began with $1 million and slowly increased his giving over time. This time, his hand and his heart did not hold back as he gave $14 million to the zoo in efforts to reconstruct a much-needed hippo sanctuary from within.

Dondero’s donated covered all aspects of the design and building, as well as continual maintenance, of the hippo sanctuary overall. Zoo staff and executives could not be happier. Neither could the zoo guests, who continue to share the good news of this recent addition on Facebook, Instagram, Google Plus, YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, Pinterest, Snapchat, Tumblr and more.

The best part is this: James Dondero knows how to recognize a need when there is one. In this case, it was no different. The zoo had a continual longing for a hippo presence, one which had not been met for 15 years. The last hippo to have lived and died in the zoo was one well-known and highly-missed; his death was not taken lightly.

Thanks to Dondero, the hippos now have more than 120,000 gallons of fresh water to swim or sleep around in – as well as a whopping 2 acres of uninterrupted space above water. That’s a deal and a half, and if the hippos could, they would each give Mr. Dondero a warm hug as thanks. Dondero notes that he has been informed that the new hippos moved into their habitat with much ease and fit right in.

The zoo customers, of course, are the truly happy ones as they now get to behold a beautiful sight that they have not beheld in almost two decades – hippos in Dallas. All are happy. It’s a win win situation of the grandest proportions; thanks, Mr. Dondero!

The Luxury Secot of Jose Auriemo Neto of JHSF

Jose Auriemo Neto, the current CEO of JHSF, is an exceedingly busy man, but in his rare spare time, he enjoys playing golf. He says on average he has this rare opportunity about two times a month. JHSF was first founded in 1972 by the brothers Fabio and Jose Roberto Auriemo. At that time it was known as JHS. In 1990 a family disagreement resulted in the brothers dividing the company into two completely separate companies, with each of the brothers taking full control of one of the control of one of them.

The one in control of Jose was called JHSI and continued to concentrate on construction. The other was led by Fabio and was called JHSF which focused on real estate. In 2001 Fabio’s son, Jose Auriemo Neto, helped take the company into the retail sector for the first time. One of their first great retail successes was Shopping Metro Santa Cruz in Sao Paulo. In 2006, Jose helped lead JHSF to build its first luxury retail complex called Cidade Jardim. Among many other stores, it boasts partnership agreements with top names like Hermes, Pucci, Valentino, Red Valentino, and Jimmy Choo.

In 2007, he heavily invested in the Fasano Group. Just a few years later Jose replaced his retiring father as company CEO. He has since led JHSF to build luxury condominiums, schools, and more luxury shopping centers. Today, JHSF has basically cornered the Brazilian luxury sector. In addition, every major city in Brazil possesses a luxury shopping mall thanks to JHSF. It also continues its long tradition of building and maintaining both private and public airports. It has also expanded its operations into Uruguay and the U.S. A few years ago, Jose temporarily moved his family to New York while he supervised their first construction project there.

Jose Auriemo Neto of JHSF Works All Week

The Brazilian brothers Fabio and Jose Auriemo founded the construction company JHS in 1972. In the 1990s the two began a strong disagreement about the future of the company, resulting in the two splitting the company into two separate companies in 1995. The brothers have long since made up but have maintained separate companies. The real estate development company now known as JHSF was led by Fabio Auriemo. He would become the father of three children: A son and two daughters. His son, Jose Auriemo Neto had started working at the company in 1993, two years before the split.

Prior to this time, he had already led active teenage years, spending time at youth conferences in Tokyo, amateur football in Norway, and learning horseback riding in Belgium. When he was only 17 he had founded his first company, a small parking chain. Today he is the CEO of JHSF. He and his wife Mariana Landmann Auriemo have two children, a son and a daughter. During the average week, he works all seven days nearly all day. He hardly ever takes a vacation. The most recent one he took he took mainly to arrange partnerships with business owners interested in forming such partnerships with JHSF.

Sheldon Lavin Reminds Us Why He Is One Of The World’s Most Successful CEOs

Sheldon Lavin is the man who is responsible for a lot of the success of OSI Group. He started working with the company during the 1970s when it was in need of financing. His hard work led to a deal that enabled the company to build a plant in the United States that was dedicated to providing McDonald’s with meat products. After doing so, OSI was so impressed that Lavin was asked if he would like to serve with the company. At first, he turned the opportunity down, but he later agreed to work with OSI if the company would continue to focus on growth and expansion.

Today, Sheldon Lavin serves OSI Group as its chairman and chief executive officer. He has worked hard to keep the company on track with its sustainability and has also helped it to become more environmentally friendly. Lavin has continued to find success because he understands a business concept that many other CEOs have a hard time with. This is the concept of delegating work to the right people so his time is freed up to work on the most important matters facing the company.

Sheldon Lavin was recently asked during an interview to reveal a single marketing strategy he uses that works to bring in new business. He responded by commenting that he has always embraced new technologies and that this has become more helpful in recent years as digital techniques have become more prominent. He has found that social media marketing and digital marketing work very well and has a team that stays on top of all of the latest trends in the industry.

Sheldon Lavin has always had the ability to look into the future and make plans for what he sees coming. He feels this has been a huge part of his success and knows that many business leaders overlook the need to make plans for the future. Lavin understands this is how successful companies are created that are able to hang around for many years. It is hard to argue with him as OSI Group has been able to continue its march towards success one year after another.
