The Brazil market has been characterized by a massive presence of the government since the 20th century. However, since the 1980s this begun to change when the privatization process started. It is imperative to note that the external debt crisis triggered the privatization process was triggered.

A study conducted by the National Confederation of Industry indicated that the Brazilian private sector should be involved in the modernization of the infrastructure sector. This can only happen when the government requires the private sector firms during the privatization process.

This is because the privatization process tends to meet some of the capital investments which are needed for the infrastructure sector to operate efficiently and more. The government may not meet all the investments demands of the infrastructure sector, and therefore the private sector is needed to meet some of this investments demands.

According to Felipe Montoro Jens who advises the government on the privatization of the infrastructure sector, there are more opportunities in privatizing the sector infrastructure. On the other hand, a study by CNI indicated that the institutional modernization of the Brazilian started in the 1930s. The process continued for over fifty years without interruption.

The National Privatization Program was established in 1990 to oversee the economic reforms that the government proposed concerning the privatization of various sectors of the economy. To this end, companies operating in the aeronautical, steel, and petrochemicals industries were privatized.

The privatization process continued in the 1990s wherein 1995 the Concessions Law was enacted. At the time, the government prioritized privatizing such sectors as the transportation, electricity, sanitation, as well as telecommunications. During the same time, state banks were privatized.

In 2004, the government developed the Public Private Partnerships Act. The Act was important in the privatization of the telecommunications sector. The sector is now held by private companies and is one of the economic sectors which have been successfully privatized.’

Felipe opines that the government should responsibly regulate the telecommunications sector and other privatized sector. This will ensure that the private companies provide quality services and products to the citizens. Since privatization began in Brazil, the productivity of various companies has increased.

Felipe Montoro Jens currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the Energizer Captacao S.A. Felipe is a specialist in finance and investments. He graduated from Thunderbird School of Global Management where he graduated with a Masters in Business Administration specializing in Finance. He also attended Fundacao Getulio Vargas and graduated with an undergraduate degree.

Whitney Wolfe has confirmed one thing: she knows how to multi-task in a major way. She has been showing people that she could build a successful dating app with Bumble, but recently she is showing the same fans of Bumble that she has more up her sleeves.

Lately there has been a lot of talk about Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz. These are two additional entities to her Bumble company that are expected to change the social media world as it is known today.

Initially people assumed that Whitney Wolfe was simply taking on the dating app world and competing with big time rival Tinder. As time went on it became evident that Whitney Wolfe was also interested in building a new degree of social media hype with her friend and networking apps.

Now Whitney Wolfe is competing with other social media sites like Facebook and Snapchat. She is coming after the competition by creating a company that will be able to address all aspects of the social media platform. This is where she has been drive home the fact that Bumble is an all-in-one social media platform. She did not want to be pigeonholed into one particular spot with the dating app so she continued to work and build her app to do even more than what people would have expected it to do.

The thing that makes this very impressive is that it has not been done by anyone else before. When Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook he created a friend-finder social media platform, but he never made an intentional focus on Facebook as a dating app. LinkedIn was a networking platform, but it did not have any type of element that connected it with dating. Whitney Wolfe has taken on all of these areas under the Bumble umbrella.

Great things happen everyday within the world of business especially when higher learning is involved. Sometimes in the arena of commerce, a win-win conjunction happens. The relationship between James Dondero and SMU (Southern Methodist University) Cox School of Business is all about giving the best effort to receive the same from peers and colleagues. That is nature of most amicable relationships between institution of higher education and the pioneers who walk the halls. Founding Highlands Capital Management in 1993 is what makes James a pioneer in his own light. Staying on top of his business and establishing himself as President speaks for his staying presence. Giving consideration to the details and history of SMU and Highland Capital, few people are suited to fill the position. That fact is appreciated by both of these powerhouses within business circles.

 

The appointment is a long time coming and the result of a true winner’s attitude. What makes James Dondero a perfect match, if not the best, for this collaboration lies not within the man himself. It rests in the service and active care for SMU students by way of a program named Highlands Capital Management Tower Scholars. But that endeavor, which yields tremendously positive results year after year, is just one duty faithfully performed. There is also the continued support of the George Washington Bush Library and Museum. Dondero and his organization of professionals deserve a nod and word of recognition for that as well.

 

Quoted testimony from this SMU board member gives excellent insight as to how he feels regarding his promotion. It is concise to say that one Mr. James Dondero expresses feelings of honor to accept this official inclusion into the fold. Of course, his work habit, ethics and service have something to do with him being bestowed such a prestigious status. One’s perspective, position and responsibility in society really do not get much higher than the executive level. It is safe to say that Dondero has reached the top of the mountain when it comes to his professional growth and leadership.
