Having been in the field and extensive experience in both corporate and sole dentistry, Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva, founded his company on his knowledge of the industry which named MB2 Dental. As a result of his commitment and passion for what he likes doing his company has spread its wings to serve clients and practitioners in more than 6 States across the US. The company has currently 533 employees who are closely knitted with the leadership of the company thus making the excellence of the company possible. The drive behind Chris Villanueva starting his company is the realization that the dental practitioners required some specialized and advanced assistance which was not linked to some paybacks or other attached strings. The basic factor that has made MB2 Dental transform the dental industry, the lives of practitioners and patients is the corporation.
MB2 Dental was not founded with an aim of making huge profits as some companies do; it was founded to bring transformations in this industry. Dr. Chris Villanueva had a guiding principle in his mind that various dentists will come together, blend with each other and accomplish more compared to when they work solely. The fresh perspective that this company has brought has made many change their mind about dentistry while many dentists and patients are enjoying the presence of this company in their locality. The reason why the company stands higher than its equals is the way it is focused on support, autonomy, personal growth and having some fun together as doctors with their patients. It is no longer like the traditional dental routines that are uninspired and very drab. The innovations employed basically improve the operating standards in the company that lead to happier dentists and patients.
Some notable things that Dr. Chris Villanueva and the entire MB2 Dental takes pride in are their swiftness in knowing what is happening around them in terms of the emerging trends and standards in dentistry. They are well backed with tangible success and youthful culture where every practitioner can learn from their colleagues and develop each other. They have an expert team that ensures dentists sail through some storms that may come in form of legal, payroll, marketing, HR or maybe compliance to some standards. Their swift response to the need of the market is also a thing that they take pride in. Unlike the reserved traditional dentists, this group of dentists usually refreshes their minds by having a retreat once a year where they meet and intermingle with other dentists who believe in their philosophy. It is really fun for Dr. Chris Villanueva and his colleagues.

In a huge financial move, Houston, Texas’s Talos Energy has joined the ranks of publically traded company’s upon its merger with the Louisiana based company Stone Energy. The end result of the huge merger is that the company created out of it is significantly more powerful in its influence. Talos Energy now has major Gulf drilling operations offshore on the Mexican and United States sides. Tim Duncan, Talos Energy Chief Executive Officer, has expressed that he is ecstatic about this huge deal that is transforming his company.
At this point it is clear that Talos Energy has put itself in a perfect position to take advantage of the impressive portfolio of assets that it already enjoys. It is even more impressive considering that only six years ago, Talos was a new company. The Stone Energy merger and the subsequent public listing is the second big bit of news for Talos Energy in the last year or so as the company was part of a coalition of drilling firms that were part of the Zama discovery that was revealed off the shores of Mexico. This discovery was huge as it was the first to occur after massive reforms in Mexico’ energy laws.
Timothy Duncan Founded Talos Energy in 2012 as an energy firm that would focus its efforts on exploratory drilling development. The Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast have always been at the heart of Talos Energy’s focus as far as its explorations. Through steadfast determination and willingness to take risks, Talos Energy has become a major playing in the area of exploration. The merger with Stone Energy is a perfect fit as the company was also an exploratory operation focussing on the Gulf. Adding the significant Stone Energy resources to the resources of Talos Energy is a massive move that greatly increases the company’s footprint. The other benefit from the merger is that it was a creative way for Talos to gain a public listing, being able to simply absorb Stone Energy’s public listing that the company already had. This development along with the Zama discover has the future looking bright for Talos.

When David graduated from Iowa State in 1987 he embarked on his long business career with OSI Group that has seen him rise through the ranks to the top. David came into his career with OSI Group as a project manager who was given the project of expanding OSI Group’s operations in Asia. David is fully committed to OSI Group’s global expansion drive that was initiated by Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Sheldon Lavin beginning in the 1970s. David takes particular pride in the company’s achievements in China as the Asian market has been close to his heart since his earliest times with the company. He was recently thrilled with the opening of the tenth OSI Group facility in China. David also works hard at maintaining OSI Group’s long term sustainability by continuing to foster the company’s tradition of being a family-values oriented workplace that treats both customer and employee as valued family members. This environment is a major contributor to the fact that OSI Group has very low employee turnover and very high retention of long-term customers.
David has also been working hard on OSI Group’s footprint in Europe recently. The company has acquired Baho Food and Flagship Europe. These acquisitions have been described by David McDonald as a huge boost to the company’s portfolio. He expects that the additions of Baho and Flagship to the OSI family will bring in many new, high profile accounts. OSI has also recently announced that Flagship Europe will be rebranded as Creative Foods Europe. These acquisitions coincided with the massive upgrades made to OSI Group’s facility in Toledo, Spain. Improvements to the production line at that facility have led to a much-needed increase in chicken production. The facility is now producing in excess of 24,000 tons of chicken per year in its drive to give its Spanish and Portuguese customers the very best in customer service.
OSI also announced big news on the homefront with the recent purchase of the former Tyson food facility located in Chicago, Illinois. The location is now the newest OSI Group food processing facility and the second operated by the company in the Chicago region. The expectation is that this will lead to a massive increase in production for the company in this critical market.
Excellence is more than a single act; it is a habit. OSI industries has excelled profoundly in the food production industries. The company has been ranked highly among America’s top companies. Their success can be attributed to the company’s keenness on ensuring consumer satisfaction. Their production is mainly inclined towards meeting the consumers’ immediate desires and needs.

Consumer satisfaction being its strength, expansion of manufacturing units has become the way to go for OSI industries. This is with the sole aim of satisfying the evolving demand. In North America, the company bought the Tyson Food facility in Chicago which was on the verge of closure after laying off a better part of its stuff. The move not only broadened its production network but also indicated business growth.

Taking note of the high amount of energy consumed in meat production, the unit employs energy efficient systems which utilize waste energy from refrigeration units.

Fortress Investment Group consistently has been working different markets and has capitalized on numerous different assets that yielded substantial profits. One of the notable assets was a skiing site that Fortress controls which the 2010 Winter Olympic Games was heavily vested in. Fortress Investment Group was chosen because “of a sense that this was a solid partner”. This was stated by Mr. Robertson who was a provincial politician. With this specific deal Fortress Investment Group expertly renegotiated $1.68 billion worth of debt and reached a beneficial agreement that allowed fortress to manipulate current market so that premium numbers could be reached.
This ideal of the company was reached because it has a dominant presence on social media compared to any other competitor in its field managing the level of assets that Fortress Investment Group has. Fortress knows that social media is a foundation of understanding with the current society of how a company presents itself and relates to its customer base. This is portrayed prevalently by Fortress Investment Group with its consistent display of professionalism and non-bias when communicating topics and ideals with its customer base.
