Capital Group Selects A New Leader With A Record Of Success

Published / by StevenLHarris / 1 Comment on Capital Group Selects A New Leader With A Record Of Success

In the world of business it can be more difficult than one might initially think to find executives that have strong leadership skills and a deep understanding of the inner workings of the businesses they lead. It can be even harder to find leaders who have a strong grasp on the technical disciplines that make the services they provide to their clients possible.

Fortunately for the financial services company Capital Group, the organization was able to find all three in its recently appointed Chairman Timothy Armour. In 2015 Armour was appointed to the mission-critical position of the chairmanship of Capital Group by the company’s Board of Directors. Armour’s appointment saw him joining other leaders of the corporation like Robert Lovelace and Phil Toledo, who both serve as Presidents of divisions within the company to make important decisions about how the organization will operate in the future and how it will fine-tune its general business strategy. Armour was proceeded in his new position by the late Jim Rothenberg. James Rothenberg’s passing prompted the company to appoint a new chairman to build upon the legacy that Rothenberg had begun at Capital Group. Upon the announcement of his appointment Armour shared a statement that noted that Rothenberg’s legacy at the firm had been one of “purposeful” leadership that consistently endeavored to prioritize what was best for the company’s employees, clients and investors.

Arguably Armour was uniquely qualified to lead Capital Group. Armour had been in the field of investment management and financial services for 32 years in the time proceeding his appointment to his new position. His decades of experience very likely precipitated a depth of expertise that was necessary for the next leader of Capital Group to have. It also demonstrated a profound appreciation for the financial services industry. What also set Tim Armour apart as a candidate for a senior leadership position at the firm was the fact that he had spent the entirety of his career with the company.

Armour set an example for any aspiring investment management professional by starting out as an associate and rising through the ranks of Capital Group to a role that would allow him to make important decisions for the company’s future. During his long career with Capital Group Armour spent time working as an equity investment analyst.

Transit Experts Meet To Discuss Williamson County’s Traffic Problems

Published / by StevenLHarris / 1 Comment on Transit Experts Meet To Discuss Williamson County’s Traffic Problems

Recently, Williamson County Growth Summit held a meeting to discuss and come up with innovative solutions to the county’s traffic problem. In the past, such meetings have been organized by the City of Austin. However, this new shift hopes to solve the problem within the city by first addressing the transport challenges experienced in the suburban communities such as in Williamson County.

The summit invited transit experts from county and outside the same. Some of the key participants were Jared Ficklin of ArgoDesign, Leandre Johns of Texas External Affairs, Joseph Kosper of Uber Technologies Inc., and Mike Heiligenstein, the executive director of Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA). The summit was held at the Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center. It focused on how technology can be used in response to the changing face of transportation both in Austin and across the globe.

The experts proposed many solutions for the county such as aerial gondola systems. This system will be used to improve mobility in Central Austin. The experts also encouraged the region to adopt new technologies such as ridesharing apps and driverless vehicles. These innovations have the potential to revolutionize the transit sector. This information was originally published on bizjournal.com as explicated in this link http://www.bizjournals.com/austin/news/2016/12/15/transit-experts-offer-solutions-for-williamson.html

There is need for Austin to invest in its transportation sector and expand its capacity to match the demands of its growing population. These investments should mainly focus on building smarter roads.

Heiligenstein praised Williamson County for its effort in structuring its infrastructure. However, he noted that the work done in the last 15 years was not adequate. Mike believes that new roads help in decongesting traffic in the region.

According to Ficklin, there is need to create flexible building and land-use codes. Such flexibility will allow for new roads and modern parking garages. He noted that the current laws do not permit the creation of optimized parking garages. Ficklin was responding to a question raised by the panel moderator, Alan McGraw, who is the Round Rock Mayor.

About Mike Heligenstein

Mike Heiligenstein is a transit expert. He is based in Texas. Mike is the executive director of CTRMA, an organization charged with the duty of improving mobility in Austin. The agency was created in 2002. Mike is also the president of International Bridge, Tunnel, and Turnpike association. He serves on the board of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute. Before Joining CTRMA, Mike worked as a public official for two decades.

 

How Fabletics Is Using Reverse Showrooming To Challenge Amazon Model?

Published / by StevenLHarris / 1 Comment on How Fabletics Is Using Reverse Showrooming To Challenge Amazon Model?

Traditionally, it was common for retail stores to use their showrooms as a source of inspiration to visitors. While visitors are attracted to the design, showrooms are also a place for companies to generate awareness of the brand. In these showrooms, benefits of quality are explained in detail to convince customers to buy a product on the spot.

 

However, the advent of the Internet proved a challenge for brick-and-mortar stores. These physical stores found it hard to attract customers because their potential clients were doing comparison shopping on the Internet. It also meant that customers already made up their mind in matter of minutes before anyone in the showroom could explain the quality of the product.

 

Still, there are companies that have found innovative methods to deal with the issue. Actually, they have integrated online and offline channels to offer a seamless experience. Fabletics, is one of the premier companies that perfected the model of reverse showroom technique to convince their loyal online customers to visit physical storefronts.

 

Before using the reverse showrooming to their advantage, Fabletics marketed fashionable cloths at a great price through subscription based catalog offers. The model ensured that subscribers get access to popular designs at almost half the price of competition. The value proposition proved effective as Fabletics grew its customer base rapidly. In fact, revenues generated in the first three years exceeded $250 Million, which is impressive for a new brand.

 

Following on the success, Fabletics management decided to open numerous physical store fronts across America that will allow customers to try their favorite outfits before buying the clothing. It did not mean that customers did not trust the online store; however, physical stores complement online offerings by providing a value-added service to loyal clients. The idea of physical stores is also an instant hit because Fabletics management is ready to roll out 75 to 100 new stores in prime locations across the United States. Locations such as Mall of America offer locals a chance to access Fabletics stores easily whenever they are in a mood for shopping.

 

Besides the success of online subscription model and physical stores, the reverse showroom technique is also an instant hit because data indicates that nearly 25 to 50 percent of store visitors are subscribers. It means that subscribers are actively using physical stores to their advantage. In addition, the management also revealed that nearly one-fourth of walk-in customers are converted to members before they walk out of the store. To create a large impact, the company ensures that products bought by the customers also show in online portals of customers, which helps Fabletics to display similar products on online portals.

 

Since 2012, Fabletics has grown to a multi-million brand. Initially, it sold women sportswear and accessories. In 2015, Kate’s brother and actor, Oliver Hudson decided to become brand ambassador by adapting FL2 men’s activewear.
