Madison Street Capital Working with United Ways

When it comes to investment banking firms, clients do more than just an online search. These are the kinds of companies that handle millions or billions of dollars in funds. It wouldn’t be wise to go with a firm that doesn’t really know what it’s supposed to be doing.

Madison Street Capital is not one of those companies. For decades, Madison Street Capital has built an outstanding reputation for itself, backed by an unwavering and endless list of clients. Madison Street Capital professionals are some of the most experienced advisors on matters of mergers and acquisitions, financial opinions, and evaluating publicly and privately held companies.

Madison Street Capital’s experience is being put to the test these days. After partnering with United Ways, Madison Street Capital is helping rebuild America after a number of natural disasters left many communities in ruin. Over the last few months, hurricanes, landslides, and other natural disasters left more than 12 states in shambles.

The first organizations on the scene were philanthropic groups providing much-needed aid to survivors. United Ways was one of those organizations. The first aid provided including things like food and shelter. Now, many of these organizations are focusing on long-term recovery efforts.

Many people don’t realize the extent of the damage yet. The news has only shown the visible damage caused by the disasters. It hasn’t really sunk in how much damage has been done to the local economies and communities independence. That’s what companies like Madison Street Capital are fixing.

Through its partnership with United Ways, Madison Street Capital hopes to restore these communities’ sense of economic independence. This is the kind of goal United Ways has been focused on the last the ten years. United Ways was already trying to improve education and financial stability for these communities before the disasters struck.

Even during times of great tragedy, people need to have some fun. Every year for the last 16 years, the M&A Advisors have held a Gala honoring the best in the business. At the Metropolitan Club in New York, the M&A Advisors Awards were handed out.

Madison Street Capital won the Debt Financing Deal of the Year for handling the WLR Automotives transaction. It’s not the first time they’ve won an award for their excellence, but this was an honor worth mentioning on everyone’s resume. Even Charles Botchway, CEO of Madison Street Capital, spoke at the Gala.

Securus Technologies Combating the Menace of Drones in the Correctional Sphere

One company in the correctional firm that has been achieving great heights of success in the past few years is Securus Technologies. The company has over the years invested millions into developing new criminal justice and correctional technologies that would contribute to building safer communities. Even though there are many other correctional firms, Securus Technologies has been leading from the front because of its dedication towards its customers. Securus Technologies has received A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau, which showcases the high standards that are being maintained by the company to serve its customers.

It has also helped in increasing the trust of the customers and investors in the company. In the year 2018, Securus Technologies won three prestigious Gold Stevie Awards for the best customer service, which further consolidated the position of the company in the correctional sphere. The customer service category is always a highly crowded category in which hundreds of companies from across the globe participate. Winning three awards for the best customer service is a huge achievement, which has helped the company to build a solid reputation in the industry.

Apart from providing excellent customer service, Securus Technologies also builds highly advanced and futuristic correctional technologies. It is a well-known fact that the correctional agencies are trying to fight the problem of drones entering the prison airspace and dropping contraband packages. It is a problem that needs to be addressed seriously as many of the dropped packets that have been caught also contains weapons, which can put lives of many inmates as well as the correctional personnel in danger. Securus Technologies understands the gravity of the situation and thus, has been trying for many months to develop a technology that would put an end to this problem once and for all. It is for this reason; Securus Technologies introduced the drone detection technology recently.

The drone detection technology is known to help with detecting the presence of drones in the airspace over the prison. It would help the correctional officers to catch the drones before it can drop any contraband packages that reach the hand of the inmates. Supply of contraband needs to be stopped as it contains many illegal materials, which can impact the safety of other prisoners as well as corrupt the correctional ecosystem. Securus Technologies is currently running the pilot program of drone detection technology and is confident that this technology would continue to evolve into the future and eliminate the use of drones. The drone detection technology is highly needed these days to ensure that the criminals do not use the drones to supply contraband inside the prison. The drone detection technology is the only such technology present today that can combat the menace of drones successfully.

Dick Devos – article recap

Dick Devos may not be lesser known than his wife, but it wasn’t always that way. Before becoming the husband of the Secretary of Education, Devos was the CEO of his family’s Amway Company, a giant in personal selling. Before that, he got involved in his local community to try and protect it from urban sprawl and potential degradation. Devos dedicated himself early on to ensuring that Grand Rapids did not suffer the same fate as Detroit, which saw its downtown area struggle for multiple decades. With this focus in mind, he became known for taking a stand when others would not.

 

It started prior to Devos taking that job as the CEO of his family’s company. He was well on his way, and he was busy enough that he could have declined to get involved in local politics. He cared deeply about Grand Rapids, though, so when certain individuals proposed building an athletic complex north of downtown, he called to launch a complaint.

 

Devos was smart enough to diagnose what had happened in Detroit a few years prior. The Palace at Auburn Hills, where the Pistons played, and the Pontiac Superdome, where the Lions flailed, were proposed in Detroit as a means of providing fans with a better experience. In reality, they pulled people out of the downtown area and made it impossible for Detroit to see any productive growth. This led to squatters buying up all of the land in downtown and just waiting for an opportunity to sell for a profit. Empty lots festered, leaving Detroit with a reputation problem, a crime problem and a lack of economic growth. Seeing all of those results, Devos knew that a new facility north of Grand Rapids would lead to similar problems there.

 

With this new focus on Grand Rapids came the formation of a group called Grand Action. Devos and other business leaders led the charge to ensure that the Grand Rapids skyline was full of great attractions. The medical university for Michigan State was built there. A new arena came about. A convention center is named after Devos. Overall, the revitalization helped to ensure that Grand Rapids would have one of the most attractive downtown areas for businesses and residents alike. This has been important for preventing population loss, too. All of a sudden, breweries began popping up. Young people saw Grand Rapids as a hip place to call home.

 

The heirs to two different fortunes, Devos and his wife have been given the opportunity to make great change. Betsy has made her mark in educational fundraising, using her position to advocate on behalf of people who have no better options for their children. Dick has made his community his focus, pouring his time, effort and skill into developing a downtown area that is now a model for other smaller cities around the country. The two have become known for their good works and also their vision. They’ve seized on issues that matter, using privilege to leave their mark.

End Citizens United Endorsements Make A Polling Difference

In the state of Texas, Republicans have been at the heart of much of the political landscape of the history of the state and Senator Ted Cruz has been a major force on the U.S. political stage in recent years. The arrival of the End Citizens United PAC could signal a change in the political order in Texas as the Political Action Committee is seeking to help elect Democrat Beto O’Rourke who has signed a pledge to ensure he does not accept funding from special interest groups or corporate PACs who try to manipulate politicians to achieve specific political ends.

End Citizens United has seen significant results from its decision to make a major point of the campaign funding issue for the 2018 Midterms and in earlier elections including the special election in Alabama where Doug Jones was elected over the overwhelming favorite for a victory was Republican Roy Moore. A number of politicians are now making the choice to turn their back on funding from corporate PACs and special interest groups as the stigma appears to be growing about the political influence of many of these groups moving forward; a good sign of this change in attitude is the 49 percent disapproval rating of Ted Cruz among the people of Texas.

The polls conducted by End Citizens United have proven the most important message put across by President Tiffany Muller is that of campaign financing reform with many candidates seeing a significant rise in their polling numbers when the support of the PAC is revealed to members of the public. Formed in 2015, the campaign strategy of End Citizens United has been evolving as the group has been working on different elections for various candidates with the message of financial reform proven through testing to be more effective than a traditional Democrat message of left-leaning values.

One of the most successful aspects of the latest campaigning policies introduced by End Citizens United has been the introduction of a candidate pledge stating an endorsement from the PAC will be accompanied by a refusal to accept funding from corporate PACs and wealthy donors according to ballotpedia.org. The pledge is open to Democrats and has been signed by new candidates and experienced politicians with more than 70 Democrats standing for election already rejecting the backing of special interest groups; New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is just one of the well-known names from the left to reject special interest funds with End Citizens United endorsing her campaign and looking to back Democrats with the more than $30 million in funds expected to be raised by the PAC over the course of the coming year as the 2018 Midterms draw ever closer.
