Most corporate executives have been known to work all their careers in just one or two companies, rising through the ranks to become a CFO or COO and then retire without the rest of the industry benefiting from their expertise. Not so with Peter Bauert. He has been confident enough with his academic roots and leadership style to go from one company to another, enriching their businesses along the way.
Peter Bauert is currently the CFO of a young aggressive upstart company called Parallels, Inc which specialized in providing virtualization technology solutions that bring PC Windows, Mac OS and Linux operating under virtual partitions in just one computer machine – a technology that is more relevant in optimizing resources of companies in the hosting business. Since 2008 when he took the position, he has grown the business to its current unviable financial muscle to be among the leaders in the virtualization business.
Prior to this, Peter Bauert also played a key role in bringing a Norwegian company FAST (Fast Search and Transfer ASA) to a leadership position in data search technology used by search engines. It was during his watch as the EVP for Strategy and Operations that the company acquired Convera Corp, a cutting edge company in the data retrieval ware business with clients in the US and European governments. This was his last key position before joining Parallels and just as the company was acquired by Microsoft who has been eying a foothold in the search engine market. Clearly, just about every company he touches turns into a gold mine.
The business world contains the up points and down points. Your business goes up when you are in big demand and your market needs you the most, more than they need your competitor. This condition says that you are the winner of the battle. But in business too, unexpected things may occur. If you are somehow unable to increase or simply maintain your condition, the company goes down. Most of the time, this situation can be handled with marketing strategy.
But, what if someday your business continues to go down without having the ability to restore its previous position? This must come to your mind as well-experience businessman. Before it really happens to you, you can always have protection as early as you can. By using the economic method, besides covering and protecting your business from an unwanted situation, you also invest the capital stock that can enhance the expansion plan.
Private Equity comes as the solution when you are ready for this. Merger and acquisition usually come as the company’s service. Platinum Equity for example, is the biggest private company in the US and considered as the most important company for many business sectors, including your company. By trusting your non-core assets to private equity, you can rest assured that there is no end for your company that you built years ago.
Not too long ago, there seemed to be a sharp increase for searches on Google that involved the keywords “Primerica scams”. Primerica scams have gained increasing popularity, leaving everyone to ask “So what’s the deal with all these Primerica scams?” If you are having doubts about Primerica, you are not alone. Such a vast amount of Primerica scams usually indicates that a company is not to be trusted. But before you close the book on Primerica, perhaps you should do some research. Did you know that Primerica scams have appeared to influence Primerica’s rating of Better Business Bureau?
If Primerica scams were really warranted, surely they would significantly influence a company’s reputation on the Better Business Bureau’s rating system. This has not happened, and Primerica has had a good review since 1980! If you have been persuaded by the sheer amount of business reports indicating that Primerica scams are widespread and commonplace, perhaps you should check out the Better Business Bureau’s website.
