If you want your company to succeed, then it is paramount that you find the proper fit for who should be in charge of the organization. Thankfully, this is something that the gas giant Gulf Coast Western did a great job of when finding Matthew Fleeger, who currently steers the company in new directions as its CEO, although he also works as the president as well as the director. It is doubtful that the company would have reached the same level of success without him.
There is nothing like experience when it comes to preparing someone for a future role, and Matthew Fleeger was well-prepared to be in a leadership role at Gulf Coast Western due to his background. After graduating at Southern Methodist University with his bachelor’s degree, it was MedSolutions, Inc. that became the backbone of his leadership experience. This is a company that he both founded and led as CEO for quite some time.
There are few individuals who can make something as complex as changing the direction of a company look easy to onlookers, and Matthew Fleeger is one of them. The structure of a business, as well as the culture within the company, are quite important, and improving them can make an organization more successful. Palm Beach Tan, Inc. would not have grown its tanning salon chain nearly as much without the directorial efforts of Mr. Fleeger.
If a company such as Gulf Coast Western is under the influence of someone with as brilliant of a leadership history as Matthew Fleeger, then it seems like new heights are more or less a certainty for the gas and oil business. Its CEO has sent his companies to the highest highs of their industries before, so there is truly nothing stopping him from doing exactly that in his current project.
Doe Deere is the CEO and founder of Lime Crime, a vegan based makeup company in Los Angeles and a Russian born immigrant from the city of Izhevsk, Russia. As a young girl Deere dreamt of a life in the United States after obsessing over American Culture. In her spare time Deere emerged herself in American music, movies, magazines, and pop-culture and soon came to realize that the American life was the life she wanted.
At the impressionable age of 17 Deere moved to New York along with her mother and younger sister in search of a better life and that elusive American dream. Once arriving in New York Deere and her family soon realized that the iconic images they had seen of New York while in Russia were all magnified a million times over in real life.
The trio worked as hard as they could cleaning other peoples’ homes or taking care of other peoples’ pets. Deere’s mother was a successful accountant back in Russia but struggled to make ends meet initially in New York. Deere admits that those were difficult times as they were forced to live in a homeless shelter for six months and often had to rely on church handouts to eat. During this time Deere would often escape the hardships of her life by daydreaming of being a fashion designer and creating sketches of clothing that temporarily provided her with moments of solace.
One day their lives began to change for the better after being introduced to a non-profit legal organization named Sanctuary for Families lead by attorney Dorchen Leidholdt who believed in Deere’s family and soon was able to get them back on their feet. Leidholdt helped provide the family with a home of their own in Harlem, was able to help Deere’s mother land a job in accounting, and was able to get Deere into the Fashion Institute of Technology based on Deere’s drawings that she used to create while in the homeless shelter.
In time Doe Deere was able to start her company Lime Crime which has become a great success and has employed over 35 people. Deere believes faithfully that people can begin to thrive even while at their most vulnerable and can achieve their own American dream with the help and faith of others, a philosophy which Deere embraces full heartedly.

Adam Milstein started working in the real estate field when he was young. He enjoyed working for his father, but he wanted to develop his own identity. After moving to the United States, he worked with successful business owners in California.
He now manages the finances of one of the largest real estate companies in the country. Adam Milstein has a unique set of skills that make him perfect for the job. Not only has he won awards for his work, but he has also been recognized for his contributions to the community.

In 1998 Deignan co-founded Fanlink and worked for that company until 2001. At this point, he became the Executive Vice President at iS3 and served in that position from 2002 until 2011. In 2011, Robert Deignan took on his most recent entrepreneurial venture and co-founded Advanced Tech Support (ATS) Digital Services; he is also the CEO of the company.
Hundreds of thousands of people depend on ATS for technical support. The company’s technicians are highly trained and knowledgeable to ensure that the support they provide is successful. Sometimes the tech support can be achieved by a conversation over the phone; and, other times, the support is more complicated so remote screen sharing needs to take place to ensure that the problem is fixed. No matter the case, customer service is top priority.
Robert Deignan and his team at ATS Digital Services are proud of the service they’ve provided as it has allowed them the opportunity to become AppEsteem certified. This certification says that the company is qualified to provide the best support to consumer software applications. This is a huge opportunity for Advanced Tech Support because it will be the first call center to achieve the AppEsteem certification.
There are thirty-nine detailed parameters that have to be met before a company can receive this certification. However, the choice to get the certification was simple for ATS Digital Services two reasons; first, because, upon review, it was determined that ATS Digital Services was already complying with most of the standards set by AppEsteem; second, Robert Deignan and his entire team strive to have the best consumer-focused compliance, which is something most call centers cannot say about themselves.
Robert Deignan graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in 1992. He then continued his education at Purdue University pursuing a degree in business management. He graduated from Purdue in 1995.

Let’s not beat around the bush here. Everyone wants to have a great credit score but not everyone is disciplined financially. Many people abuse credit cards, racking up consumer debt on clothes, fast food, luxury items, and really just things that they don’t need. What happens is that these same people can’t pay off the debt when the payment is due. So, they make the minimum payment month after month. Credit card companies take notice of these transactions and give them a horrible credit score. Because they got themselves into a hole, banks and credit unions won’t give them loans for things more important like auto loans or even mortgages. The good news is this doesn’t have to be you. If you use a credit card the right way, it can actually be very beneficial. In this article, I am going to be breaking down the top way on how you can improve your credit score using a very simple method.
- Pay off all debt
In order for your credit score to get better, you must show credit card companies that you can pay off the debt. When you finally get above water and make regular payments like you are supposed to, you will most likely notice that your credit score has improved. If you are dealing with larger debts, I would highly recommend using the debt avalanche method. This is where you pay off the debt with the highest interest rate first. This saves you money over the long run.
- No cash, no credit.
If you can’t afford to buy something with cash, don’t buy it. For beginners, I would recommend using credit cards for minor expenses like gas and groceries, things you know for sure you will be able to pay off when the payment is due.
Out of all the credit companies out there, I would recommend going with GreenSky Credit. At GreenSky Credit, they are very credible. GreenSky Credit has a staff that is committed to giving you the best loans possible. GreenSky Credit also has funded over one billions dollars worth of loans over the years. In the end, choosing to do business with GreenSky Credit is a wise choice.
Food is something that no one can live without. These products come in various forms and flavors, but did you know that many of your favorite food products come from the same food provider? This means that the exact same products that come from two different stores can have two distinct tastes. There are plenty of foodservice providers in the world, but the United States is home to one of the best. Have you ever heard of OSI Industries? Well, if you haven’t heard, then you’re not alone. This is one of the absolute best custom-food companies, and it provides a large range of custom-foods. On the other hand, the company produces a ton of standard foods such as:
• Fresh Dough
• Beef Patties
• Hot Dogs
• Chicken Wings
• Chicken Fried Steak
• And numerous others
OSI Industries is the master when it comes to this subject because of its wide range of capabilities. Processing, development, distribution and management services are all being offered here. You can’t say that about most of the field. The company dates back to 1909 and during this time, it was a tiny meat market. This meat market sold some of the freshest of meats in Illinois as well as the Midwest. As of today, the once tiny meat market has manifested into a huge corporation that has facilities across the globe. Germany, Austria, Brazil, Japan, China, Hungary and many more countries play host to these state-of-the-art facilities.
Here in the United States, OSI Industries has numerous innovative facilities in the states of Illinois, Utah, California and Iowa. Since the company specializes in custom-foods, it can develop foods to match the clients’ ideas. Test kitchens and R&D centers are the weapons of choice. What more could you ever ask for? OSI Industries has simply set the benchmark, and it will continue to do so for many more years to come.

OSI Industries, Aurora, Illinois, is one of the leading providers of processed food in the world. It was founded in 1909 and for many years it was known as Otto & Sons. It really came to prominence in 1955 when it was chosen by the then new company McDonald’s as one of their regional supplier of beef patties. The company was renamed as OSI Industries in the middle of the 1970s. It is a privately held company which is owned by its chief executive officer, Sheldon Lavin.
Many of the employees who work for OSI Industries have spent their entire working life at the company. They have food processing plants and regional offices in cities around the world. They have a large variety of jobs they offer and the ones available in the United States can be found at ZipRecruiter.com. Among the positions that are currently available, they are hiring for an operations internship, cash accountant, 2nd shift production supervisor, sales finance director, and plant cost accountant among many others.
OSI Industries is a firm that takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously, limiting the effect doing business has on the environment. This commitment was reflected in 2016 when the firm was one of just 18 organizations in the world to have the British Safety Council bestow upon it their coveted Globe of Honour Award. In order to win this award, an organization has to show that their environmental management has been exceptional over the previous 12 months. Everything is documented that the company does whether it’s in the production facility or the boardroom of the firm. The criteria that are involved are judged by an independent panel of experts.
At OSI Industries they made a couple of big acquisitions over the course of 2016. The first acquisition took place early in the year when they completed a deal to buy a Dutch food processor, Baho Foods. Along with the wide range of processed food they bought they also acquired food processing plants in both the Netherlands and Germany. This was followed up in December when they bought a United Kingdom food processor, Flagship Europe. Both companies fit very well with OSI Industries in the types of food they offer their customers.

Scientists have found a way to grow crops in greenhouses and use the power of the sun simultaneously. There is new technology that has the potential to lower greenhouse gas emissions by using special pink glass that controls the temperatures inside. The pink glass panels are called Wavelength Selective Photovoltaic Systems and are used on the roof of the greenhouse and are embedded with magenta luminescent dye. Using these panels generates solar electricity to control the temperature in the greenhouse, making it possible to use less energy. Greenhouses use a lot of energy because it is expensive to not only keep them lit but to also control the temperature. Using this new discovery, pink-paneled greenhouses could help with sustainability an offer a food system that requires far less energy.
