Arthur Becker Pursues Boutique Condo Project

Arthur Becker is a tech mogul who successfully maneuvered into the real estate world by setting up roots in New York. Becker has been one of the primary investors behind guys like Michael Stern, Kevin Maloney and of course Robert Gladstone. Over the years Becker has led his success straight to his newest gig: becoming the name on the side of the building. Becker is looking to transition into the frontline of real estate development as he focuses on his own condo project.

According to Angel.co, back in 2012 Becker went ahead and purchased the building at 465 Washington for a rounded figure of $6.2 million. Becker had purchased the building at a discount from a former architect who was looking at potential foreclosure. Becker swooped in and also bought neighboring properties in order to prepare himself, years in advance, for what he is calling a ‘primer project’. This primer project, of course, is the eight unit condo that Becker has been putting his passion and focus into for the past couple of years.

The boutique condo is aiming for a sellout of $53 million when it is all complete. Right now the building sits at five stories but after development is finished the building should see an additional five stories added Inside of the building you will see a boutique, artisinal vibe that has been designed by Paris Forino. Becker is focused on developing what should be an in-demand piece of property that he called, “A size I can manage.” Becker has always been in love with this section of Tribeca so the purchase and corresponding development makes total sense.

Becker has been a force for a long time in the New York development area. Estimates from analytic firms put Becker’s contributions to the city development scene at nearly $500 million. This level of contribution is unheard of from someone that most people wouldn’t be able to pick out of a line up. Still, Arthur Becker has a laudable resume with offices around the globe thanks to his work with Navisite — a tech company quoted on the NASDAQ that profited under his leadership.

The Innovation Of EOS Lip Balm

EOS, Evolution of Smooth emerged into store shelves seven years ago and changes the lip balm industry. Selling at big chain stores like Walgreens, Well, Target and Walmart, EOS reaches everyday shoppers as well as reaching celebrities such as Christina Aguilera and Kim Kardashian. EOS now sells over one million lip balms a week becoming the second leading lip balm in the United States. Sanjiv Mehra joined forces with Jonathan Teller and Craig Dubitsky to change the making and distribution of lip balm.

Tailored toward women, Mehra, Teller and Dubitsky worked with clay artists to redesign the long slender shape of traditional lip balm. Repackaging lip balm into a soft circular shape with a variety of different colors, it appeals to all five senses of consumers. EOS lip balm also provides beauty shoppers with different smells and flavors (https://www.amazon.com/Organic-Smooth-Strawberry-Passion-Honeydew/dp/B009QTDYYA) while still using organic ingredients. Competing with larger lip balm companies like Chapstick and Burt’s Bees, the startup company created a production facility to meet growing product demand.

To target millennial women between 25 and 35, EOS creators went beyond conventional marketing of magazine and television ads. EOS reached out to beauty bloggers to review the lip balm on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. To further drive product sales EOS placed endorsements in millennial celebrity music video’s and concert tours. In seven years EOS lip balm became a household name that’s partnered with Keds shoes and created limited edition lip balm collections with Rachael Roy. Continuing to revolutionize the beauty aisle EOS created shaving creams and hand lotions.

Dick DeVos; the Compassionate Businessman

Compassion and selflessness are both virtues hard to exercise in a business setting. Any business’ primary aim is to maximize profits for its owner(s). Therefore, it takes uniqueness and compassion to be both a businessperson and a philanthropist simultaneously. However, Dick DeVos has defied all odds and practiced both of these arts excellently without failure in either.

Dick DeVos was born in 1955 and is the son of Richard DeVos co-founder of Amway. DeVos has served as CEO of consumer supplying company for roughly nine years. In 2006, he ran for Michigan Governorship but unfortunately lost. Backtracking to 2012, he was named as the 67th richest person in America with an approximate net worth of 5.1 billion dollars. DeVos is a family man whose wife, Betsy DeVos, is the current United States Secretary of Education.

Dick DeVos with his wife’s support has been a major financier of the international art competition and festivals for the last eight years. The event has caught the eye of the globe and has hence attracted many visitors. They provided the financial muscle of 1.7 million dollars to launch the competition through their family foundation. Moreover, they have provided an extra 450,000 dollars to cater for the contest’s prizes and rewards.

Dick’s family charitable acts mainly revolve around the education sector. Having noted the huge cracks in the system, the family could not just sit and fold hands as if all was well. The system was in shambles, and they had to act swiftly. In 2015, they made allotment of over 3 million dollars to the education system in the country, which was tantamount to only 26 percent of their giving in that lone year. Besides, their family foundation extended a total of 357,000 dollars towards education reform groups.

In that very same year, the family made generous offers that amounted to 11.6 million dollars while their extended family handed out well over 104 million dollars in charity donations. In Forbes scale, the family ranked 24th among America’s Top Givers. The family’s lifetime giving to date has led the way amounting to 1.33 billion dollars which amount to 25% of their whole family fortune.

In 2013, the DeVos made huge donations totaling to 90.9 million dollars. The money was given towards the development of education, churches, community services, health and in support of art& culture. In 2014, they made a subsequent back-to-back hand out of 94 million dollars which were allotted to the same sectors. Dick DeVos and his entire family believe in giving, and they insist that it is not about the material possession one would acquire with their vast wealth but by how much one gives with the aim of helping others.
