Tony Petrello Helps People Get Closer To A Cure For Cancer

Posted on by

Many people who become great, often pick one path early in life and that is the path the commit to. This is not true with Tony Petrello. He was going down one path, took am immediate veer, and his life exploded with greatness and success.

Tony Petrello was originally going down the path of a mathematician, and in all honesty, he fit the part. Tony was tall, he was lanky, he was a know it all, he was a whiz kid, and in his spare time, he worked mathematics like most kids worked the latest video game.

When he attended Harvard, he was immediately noticed by Professor Serge Lang. Professor Lang had traveled the world and built a reputation as the world’s leading mathematician. In Tony Petrello, Lang saw somebody who could one day take his place and Lang began to mentor Petrello. Unfortunately, Petrello did not see himself as Lang’s mentee.

Out of nowhere, Petrello left the field of Mathematics and pursued a justice degree at his alma mater Harvard. He graduated in the late 70’s and immediately picked up a job at Baker and McKenzie in 1979. This would be the start of Tony’s career which would lead to him dominating the corporate world.

Petrello would work for Baker and McKenzie for nine years before being promoted to a Managing Partner. They would then fly him out to their New York office where he would work for five years.

Petrello would then receive a lucrative offer from Nabors Industries Ltd. His career here began in 1991 as he served them faithfully as the Chief Operating Officer. Though he expected to stay in this role for some time, the board saw great potential in him. Just one year after being hired as the COO he was promoted by the Board to the President of the company. Again, he assumed he would be in this role for quite a while. However, he performed so far above expectations that he was promoted to the CEO in 1993. As CEO he would lead the company to record profits as the shares increased by 180%. Such an increase in stocks earned Petrello a compensation package of $15 million.

Rather than keeping the wealth for himself, Petrello would donate most of this money to the Texas Children’s Hospital Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute so they could research leukemia.

Eric Lefkofsky Remains Focused

Posted on by

Cancer is a terrible disease which affects thousands of Americans annually. While some cancers can be contended with relatively easily, there are some in which there is currently no cure and very little hope. This is where Eric Lefkofsky and his innovative approach to medicine come into play.

Eric Lefkofsky started a company called Tempus. This company is at the head of their field when it comes to a data-driven approach to medicine. When Lefkosky’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, he was horrified to learn that even though a huge amount of information is collected about the disease and the patients it affects, there was not really an effective way to access and share this information, even with the use of Electronic Health Records.

What Tempus does is analyze the clinical and molecular data by using proprietary software. One of the hurdles that the company faced was capturing physician notes, which are generally typed into free-form fields and thus, hard to capture. Lefkosky helped to develop a natural language capturing software that solved this problem effectively.

Eric Lefkofsky has always strived to be at the top of his game, no matter what that game entailed. From his meager beginnings selling carpet while attending the University of Michigan to his current role as leading bio-medical technology researcher, Eric Lefkofsky focuses on one thing and gets that thing done. In his world, there is no room for error.

Eric Lefkofsky continues to inspire those around him by his charitable donations and philanthropic causes. He is proud to be a signatory member of The Giving Pledge, which both he and his wife have signed. This means that after the two pass, at least half of their immense wealth will be donated to various charities and philanthropic causes to which they find worthy.

Jose AuriemoNeto grows JHSF into national player

Posted on by

In the United States, the term Brazil is often used to describe all the horrible things that will eventually befall the United States should a given faction’s political goals not be achieved. The term Brazil itself is a metaphor for a descent into third-world chaos and a collapse of civilization.

However, people who use the term in this way should probably pick up a Brazilian newspaper and see all of the incredible things that are taking place in this dynamic country. While it’s true that, at one time, Brazil was a fairly backward, underdeveloped nation, today, the country is rapidly becoming every bit of sophisticated, cosmopolitan and developed as any of its first-world counterparts.

Today’s Brazil boasts some of the most thriving cities in all of Latin America. Places like Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo rank among the world’s top destinations for upscale resorts and international travel of the jet-setting elite. Over the last 20 years, cities from Manaus to Salvador have begun to be recognized for having five-star hotels, first-class shopping and world-class dining. Not only is it incorrect for Americans to refer to Brazil as a metaphor for everything that could possibly go wrong with a country but, increasingly, it is Brazilians who can point to America as a place in decline.

One company, JHSF Participacaoes, has perhaps done more to elevate Brazil’s status to that of a first-world, leading country than anyone else. Led by its talented and ambitious CEO, Jose AuriemoNeto, the company has undertaken some of the most ambitious real estate development projects in the history of the country, transforming entire areas of cities like Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro that were previously occupied by sprawling slums and squatter settlements. Click here to know more.

JHSF Participacaoes has been responsible for developing such projects as General Motors Brazilian Proving Grounds, an international center for automotive testing that has brought tens of thousands of jobs to the Sao Paulo area, as well as many other high profile and expansive real estate development projects.

Under AuriemoNeto’s leadership, JHSF Participacaoes is slated to continue its aggressive expansion of the high-end real estate market across the country.
