The new Mercedes sales director appointment commences in mid-April when Adam takes up the post following the departure of Mike Whittington, who was promoted to managing director Mercedes-Benz Retail Group in January 2013.
Marcus Breitschwerdt, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz UK commented: ‘To be the Number One premium brand in the UK in February is a great achievement.
In addition to those two models, Mercedes launched its first compact performance model at the Geneva Motor Show, the A 45 AMG.
Fitted with a four-cylinder turbo engine, Mercedes says it’s the most powerful series production engine in the world, developing a heady 360 hp and a whopping 450Nm torque. With a new Mercedes sales director, new product – including our award to theMercedes E 300 Hybrid for SME Company Car of the Year – and new direction in its fleet sales both to SMEs and larger customers, Mercedes is truly gathering a head of steam. I am amazed in this modern world how sexist Mecedes Benz sales staff and senior management are .

DCX to sell Chinese cars in USAA DCX to sell Chinese cars in USAIn a bold move likely to set a historic precedent, DaimlerChrysler AG on Friday became the first major automaker to confirm plans to sell Chinese-built cars in the United States after striking a deal with China's Chery Automobile Co. Under the preliminary agreement, Chery is expected to produce small Dodge cars for DCX's Chrysler Group that will go on sale in North America in 2008.
On the 29th of December, at 12:00 noon Press Conference in Valencia,A Team owner Adriano Morini and the team manager Nadia Morini will present Alvaro Barba to the Spanish press. The late Brazilian champion finished ahead of recently retired seven time world champion Michael Schumacher in a survey of experts which included FIA president Max Mosley, Ferrari boss Jean Todt, former champion Keke Rosberg and former owner Eddie Jordan. The panel was asked to compare the driving statistics of each driver in relation to their teammates. Among the current crop of drivers, two-time world champion Fernando Alonso was judged to be the eighth fastest overall, outpacing his teammate 67 percent of the time.
Other drivers of note on the list include Juan Manuel Fangio, who finished 6th, ahead of two-time champion Mika Hakkinen. British villagers surrounding the facility near York last month won a ruling to restrict the running of noisy cars for so-called 'straight line' tests. Elvington staged sixteen days of aerodynamic testing in 2006 for British based F1 teams, who use the airfield's long runways.
At the original court hearing, McLaren's test team supposedly threatened to quit Britain if it was banned from using Elvington.
The venue's owner, Elvington Park Ltd, has now appealed against the judge's decision to York Crown Court, according to York's local newspaper The Press.
Event organizers rekindled an old tradition recently with a volunteer party in Detroit, the same kind that took place in advance of the Detroit Grand Prix a decade ago. The Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix will have 100 volunteers at the annual North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month. In a decision announced Tuesday, the FEC sent an a€?admonishment lettera€? to Kirk Shelmerdine Racing.

Taylor, 31, and Lamar, 26, met at a charity event in January 2006, according to her Web site. The tabloid Bild-Zeitung reports that Willi Weber, the retired Ferrari driver's long time manager, commissioned work on a luxury Tourbillon watch to mark Schumacher's title defeat of Fernando Alonso. According to the German newspaper Bild-Zeitung, seven time world champion Michael Schumacher - Ralf's brother - and his wife Corinna did not show up at the nightclub in Salzburg. After more than 100 grand prix starts and intense pressure from the British press, the 27-year-old Honda racer finally broke through in the damp Budapest race. But Button disagrees with his father, John, who thinks the Englishman became a "more aggressive and better" driver in 2006; an opinion backed by his run of points-scoring finishes in the latter half of the season.

The two-seater R8 will be available with an optional interior light package that includes LED cabin illumination and LED lights in the engine compartment. The idea comes from auto customizers, and now that it's being done on a production vehicle, expect the trend to filter down to more everyday vehicles. The R8 also features unusual headlights that were inspired by the Sydney Opera House, one of the most distinctive and recognizable buildings in the world.
The merging of art and autos will be one of the minor themes of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month.
The 21-year-old GP2 champion will drive potentially one of the best cars of the season during his rookie year, but he is quoted by the Spanish media as saying he expects succeeding in formula one to be "difficult". Hamilton admits that he will learn a lot during the 18 races of his maiden grand prix season. The Swiss newspaper 'Blick' quoted the BMW-Sauber racer, who according to speculation recently signed a four-year contract with the German squad, as lamenting his new image as a F1 star of the future.

Foreclosure rates in Sarasota-Manatee declined steadily through 2015, and that trend has continued in early 2016, according to data provider CoreLogic. FORT MYERS — First quarter sales at Chico’s FAS fell 8% over the first quarter last year, and the company announced an expansion of its ongoing cost-cutting plan.
The company, in the statement, says the cuts “are expected to reduce complexity and standardize processes across the organization,” so it can respond faster to what customers want.
First quarter revenues at Chico’s also fell short of Wall Street expectations, which were $667.86 million.
For Adam Hall, the founder of Naples-based education technology firm Nervanix, it was a chance meeting on an airplane.
At the time, Hall didn’t know who Stone was, but as they chatted he explained Nervanix had developed groundbreaking technology using neuroscience to measure how the brain is responding to curriculum. At the time, Hall had been in the middle of raising capital to fund the growth of Nervanix. But schools are slow to pick up on new technology and Hall shifted his attention to the corporate-learning arena.
Certainly, Hall had a track record of success in the education technology field for schools. But Hall says financial technology isn’t the only industry that might benefit from Nervanix’ technology.
Hall says SS&C’s investment is better than raising capital from investors because it provided a new revenue source for Nervanix.
As part of the deal, Hall is joining SS&C’s management team and the Connecticut firm has the right of first refusal to purchase the rest of Nervanix. One of Florida’s leading site selection executives — a former state official who oversaw the deal that brought the Hertz corporate headquarters to Lee County — has harsh words for Sarasota.
The executive, Rob Sitterley, specifically says county commissioners made “a big mistake” when it rejected a proposal to use $720,000 in public funds to help lure a national roofing company headquarters to town. Commissioners were partially swayed by a vocal group of builders, contractors and roofers who opposed the project. But Sitterley, who works out of the Orlando office of Gainesville, Texas-based Merit Advisors, which represents the company behind Project Mulligan, says opposition forces were misinformed about the project. Several county commissioners, in discussion before the vote, acknowledged that sentiment would likely come their way. On the national roofing company, Sitterley says it will continue to look for a new corporate headquarters, possibly in Georgia or North Carolina. It was 2008, and Al Carlson, then-CEO of Sarasota-based Sun Hydraulics, was explaining Sun’s experience with Enterprise Florida.
Carlson, whose DNA is engineering, said one of his business’ objectives was to figure out how to be more productive, how to do more with fewer resources, to do more with fewer people. So here is how that story relates to Obama’s new overtime regulations, which if left in place by Congress over the next 50 days, will require employers to pay overtime to any salaried employee earning up to $47,000.
Like Sun, every business strives to do more with the fewest, most productive people possible. Yet, the Department of Labor believes one of the results of its overtime changes will be an incentive for businesses to hire more people.
This is what Obama and his B-crats appear not to see: Every government-forced increase in wages is not automatically offset with an increase in sales to cover the higher wage costs. To the contrary, the higher overtime demands — and the new costs to administer the regulations — will make businesses less productive and less profitable.
Surely, many of you remember how, early in your careers you recognized that to get ahead, to earn more and create more opportunities for yourself, you were willing to work harder than many of your peers.
Indeed, that’s the way many Americans have realized the American dream: work harder and longer and be more productive than others. That arrangement should be no different than any peaceful, private exchange between a buyer and seller of goods and services.
Obama and his Labor Department progressives would argue the need for government to intervene to protect the worker.
Likewise, the statist interventionists refuse to accept that the extraordinary American standard of living did not come about because of union contracts, wage-and-hour laws or the reams of regulations from Congress and the Department of Labor.
Americans’ world-leading wages and working conditions are the result of entrepreneurial innovation and competition — the freedom of employer and employee to determine how best to collaborate to serve their customers. At what price an employer and employee agree to trade is none of the government’s business.
Two Republican-sponsored bills that would nullify the new overtime regulations are creeping through the U.S. While numerous House and Senate members have proclaimed opposition to the regulations, are they really committed? Like co-work space, Endeavor charges as little as $34 a month for a seat in a wide-open space. Although there’s a game room and a kitchen and the space is open 24 hours a day, Endeavor doesn’t have a dorm-room atmosphere. A new, more sophisticated co-work space has evolved in recent years to cater to professionals such as attorneys, marketing and sales executives who are independent but don’t want to work from home. Some co-work spaces such as the Naples Accelerator and The Rocket Lounge in Fort Myers are business incubators for startups. Although Rosinus recently opened Endeavor, he says customers have included restaurateurs from the nearby Gulf Coast Town Center who need office space. Commercial real estate services firm Franklin Street has debuted its sixth office, in Orlando. Franklin Street maintains offices in Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Jacksonville, along with its Tampa headquarters.
Keaton expects to add seven property managers and agents in June to the Orlando operation, and have 40 employees there by the end of 2018. Franklin Street also hopes to pick up management of a 1 million-square-foot office portfolio in Orlando, and eventually expand service lines to include tenant representation, office and retail leasing and multifamily management. Like it does every spring, Builder magazine recently ranked the top 100 builders and the next 100 up-and-comers nationwide by the number of closings in 2015. New on the list this year was Minto Communities Florida, making its first appearance at No.
Only one Florida builder cracked the top 10: Lennar, which repeated in second place with 24,292 closings last year. The Florida Venture Forum held its ninth annual Florida Early Stage Capital Conference May 17 at the Hilton Carillon Park in St. Each presenting company delivered a pitch to an audience of approximately 300 investors and a panel of judges. Second Place ($30,000): Symptify, a Sunny Isles Beach-based virtual doctor that helps users decipher causes for their symptoms, what to do about them and where to find help.
Third Place ($20,000): Streann Media, a Miami-based supplier of tools in the audio and visual streaming industry. The Florida Venture Forum also held its sixth annual statewide collegiate business plan competition during the conference. One of his first moves was to implement a new mentoring program where he hires young, inexperienced agents to team with senior brokers. The team’s public launch was May 19 — just before the International Council of Shopping Centers conference in Las Vegas. Drews’ plan is to help businesses with site selection and bring companies to areas that will help drive economic development, including downtown Sarasota, south Venice and University Parkway, among others.
The MS&C tenant representation team has so far reached agreements with six clients to help with their expansion, Drews says. The duo, the Taylor-Hitchcock Land Team, run out of Lakeland-based Coldwell Banker Commercial Saunders Real Estate, has closed nearly $20 million in land deals in each of the last three years. That philosophy led to a big deal last year, when the pair represented the buyer and seller in an $8.2 million deal for a 1,295-acre ranch on Lake Hatchineha in Polk County. Leadership change is always stressful, but it’s multiplied exponentially when it takes place at a family business.
Much has been written about how family business owners can best handle the changing of the guard to the next generation, but it’s just as important to focus on the successor’s attitude and perspective throughout the process. Numerous times as a family business consultant I have witnessed the frustration of a successor with the senior family member whose role he is slated to succeed. Are there other family members involved — and if so, what is their reaction to your new role? In addition, it’s important to ensure there is a target date set and steps in place to make the transition. Making a leadership change in a family business takes time — perhaps five to 10 years to gain the support and confidence of current clients and staff members. Even in the best of situations, when the successor has worked for years at the business and has gained the trust and respect of the current leader, the transition process can be filled with angst. Letting go of a company you have created and nurtured is tough in the best of circumstances.
Acknowledge that entrepreneurs are often successful because they don’t follow rules — so the current leader may not be resisting the transfer of power, but may not know how to transfer the knowledge in his head gained through years of experience. Create strategies for a “brain drain” so you can understand the business from the current leader’s perspective. The process of transitioning power from one generation to the next in a family business is complex. Settling in with a new firm and a new job, Erhardt came across officials from the predecessor of pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline, who were searching for a site for a new lab in Florida. Today, Erhardt is among a handful of real estate agents along the Gulf Coast considered a pre-eminent land broker by fellow agents, property owners and users alike. Since 1993, he has been named the Florida Gulfcoast Commercial Association of Realtors’ top producer for specialty land deals 11 times, placing second in another six years. In the Tampa area, he and competitor Bill Eshenbaugh have for decades dominated commercial land sales the way Michael Jordan once reigned over basketball courts.
From the lab deal, Erhardt branched out to handle office deals, tracts for retail strip centers, hotel properties, suburban apartment sites and residential subdivisions. And while he specialized in land deals, Erhardt soon learned he needed to have a working knowledge of every type of commercial real estate.
Erhardt’s career got a boost in the mid-1980s, when suburban business parks began to sprout and the National Association of Office and Industrial Parks took root for developers, brokers and other industry participants to provide best practices and standards for development. He also notes he was helped by the deregulation of the savings and loan industry, which led thrifts flush with cash to cut in some cases ambitious and poorly underwritten real estate loans.
But what has boosted Erhardt the most, he and others contend, is his integrity and an ability to genuinely connect with people. When Erhardt’s two daughters were born, Eshenbaugh sent them gifts as a testament of the two brokers’ enduring relationship — albeit often on opposite sides of a deal. While much has changed about the business since Erhardt first started brokering land deals, at least one critical component hasn’t.


In a world where data analytics often drives intelligence, Erhardt still does most of his own research.
Erhardt still maintains a passion for boats, too — decades after trading vessels for vassals. Hospitality numbers for the first three months of the year showed Gulf Coast hotels’ year-over-year occupancies declined, but average daily rates went up. While there is no doubt that a substantial number of new hotel rooms are now being built in several markets along the Gulf Coast, we aren’t overly concerned about the ability of those markets to absorb the new inventory. For the next few years, demand for rooms along the West Coast of Florida will exceed the supply that is being built.
The state’s tourism marketing arm, Visit Florida, just reported that the Sunshine State had over 105 million visitors in 2015.
Florida’s Gulf Coast would benefit greatly from the addition of new full-service or upscale hotels and resorts that could attract major corporate and association meetings seeking new event venues in walkable settings.
Interestingly, a fourth of those are on Clearwater Beach, which has eight new hotels opening in 2016 and 2017 — four of which will be flagged with Marriott brands.
Downtown Sarasota has four upscale hotels that have just opened or are under construction, and while it is a wonderful place to stay, there are no new substantial demand generators on the horizon. We have seen overall strong performance on the Gulf Coast over the past several years, and like all expansion phases, it’s extremely difficult to perfectly balance supply and demand. There have been a number of new projects either nearing completion, getting started and others out for financing, which means we will see some supply pressure in the future. We believe this is all positive for the Gulf Coast, as the economy benefits when there are more properties spending more overall marketing dollars attracting consumers to a destination.
Paul Van Buskirk and David Farmer have developed a population-growth forecasting model that has proven to be spot on, and now the two entrepreneurs have teamed up to form a company in Bonita Springs called Metro Forecasting Models to take the model to other fast-growing areas of the country.
The data is hugely valuable to commercial developers and municipalities because it can help them plan for future growth. Van Buskirk is a longtime forecaster in the region who developed a population-forecast model based on the mathematical formula of 19th Century Belgian mathematician Pierre-Francois Verhulst. While the mathematical formula is complex, Van Buskirk explains his forecast model this way: Imagine you have a jar with yeast growing inside it. Metro Forecasting breaks down each county into thousands of parcels so that it can estimate whether commercial space or residential development is appropriate for any parcel. While Metro Forecasting charges a custom price on its work, the owner of a parcel might pay $2,500 for an analysis.
For now, they’re building population-forecast models in Sarasota County for three areas: North Port, the city of Venice and the city of Sarasota. In addition, Metro Forecasting is starting to build models for other areas of the country, including North Carolina and Alabama as well as western states. Bob Johnston knows the importance of meeting millennial needs with a modern-feeling office. Through roundtable-style discussions with employees last January, Johnston, CEO of Tampa-based Front Burner, met with his employees to come up with some common themes of what they wanted in their new headquarters. The new office space, unveiled at a May 12 event, is the epicenter for the firm’s work with franchisees and other entities.
From the employee responses, Johnston compiled six core themes: fun, innovation, respect, excellence, integrity and teamwork. Johnston hopes the newly renovated space will give Front Burner an attractive workplace and help with recruiting and employee creativity.
One key of the renovated Front Burner office that stands out to Johnston: There are no private offices.
The cast iron stove logo has symbolic meaning as the company’s logo and metaphorical meaning for Johnston.
These two rooms, referred to by Johnston as the two central brainstorming rooms, have the least amount of technology in a tech-heavy workplace. Front Burner’s project wall is the place where upcoming tasks and challenges can be publicly posted. For the first time since the recession ended, hotel-room occupancies on the Gulf Coast dipped in the first three months of this year, according to hospitality analytics firm STR.
That said, Glover and other hotel industry executives remain sanguine about the hospitality’s fortunes this year. Hoteliers cited poor weather in January and tough comparisons to an exceptionally strong first quarter in 2015 as some reasons for the drop in occupancies. Industry watchers aren’t worried that new hotels will swamp the markets, even in areas such as Clearwater Beach where 1,200 new rooms are coming to the market.
The important Easter holiday fell in March this year, skewing comparisons because the holiday was in April in 2015.
Weather was the big factor keeping occupancies below last year in the first three months because of unusually heavy rains in Southwest Florida.
The rebound in the hotel business is spurring lodgings such as the Vinoy to begin renovations.
In the rest of the state, corporate travel has picked up since the recession, though Plasencia says it hasn’t returned to 2007 peak levels yet.
Hotel industry executives say the supply of new hotels won’t exceed demand by a significant amount.
Hotel industry executives who counsel hotel owners and buyers are not worried about oversupply of new rooms, either.
Hotels with more than 300 rooms each are in the planning stages for Tampa’s downtown and Westshore areas and in Naples, Plasencia says. Private investment groups have stepped in to buy hotels where real estate investment trusts have pulled back, Plasencia says. Meanwhile, hotels are spending millions to upgrade and renovate their properties to compete. Data from hospitality analytics firm STR show declines in occupancies but increases in average daily rates in every area of the Gulf Coast.
Edward Fox, 82, founder of Fox Electronics in Fort Myers, died May 14 after fighting Alzheimer’s disease for more than 26 years. The elder Fox, a Wyoming native, founded Fox Electronics in Fort Myers in 1979, according to his official obituary, posted by Fort Myers Memorial Gardens Funeral Home & Cemetery. Fox Electronics earned widespread recognition over the years as one of the leading manufacturing companies in Southwest Florida. Kelly Caldwell, president and CEO, posed two questions: What do we need to change to accommodate growth? The answers, in summary, were to invest heavily in technology and people to create and use the technology. That’s one of the first things WellCare executive Pamme Lyons-Taylor thought about after she scaled down the wall of Priatek Plaza in downtown St.
Lyons-Taylor, WellCare’s vice president of advocacy and community-based programming and a Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay board member, raised more than $1,250 for the event. As the Lee County industrial vacancy rate shrank to 6.5% in the first quarter of this year, brokers and users alike have lamented that new product hasn’t come online. Krise’s Kismet Industrial Park LLC intends to develop as much as 270,000 square feet of new flex and warehouse space on a 25-acre tract in Cape Coral, beginning early next year. That price works out to $2.61 per usable square foot on a development basis — a tenth of what market-rate space often requires to develop.
The property, on Littleton Road, was owned by Tri-State Development LLC prior to an Everbank foreclosure, records show. Small business owners, to a certain degree, are a happy lot these days, according to the spring American Express OPEN Small Business Monitor survey.
A majority of entrepreneurs, 61%, plan to take at least one full week off this summer — the highest tally since 2006, when 67% planned to bust loose from work for a week.
Overall, fewer small business owners are taking home a salary, from 57% in spring 2015 to 51% this spring. The percentage of business owners who plan to hire employees over the next six months, 39%, is up from 34% in 2015. The nationwide survey, of more than 700 business owners of companies with 100 employees or less, also asked small business owners what factors will influence their votes in the November presidential election.
Guatemalan entrepreneur and onetime politician Harold Caballeros learned one of his biggest lessons in commercial real estate in the late 1990s real estate boom in Miami: the art of the hyper-focus. In a few months, he and some business partners bought and flipped more than 40 units, apartments and condos, for a solid profit. Caballeros hopes another hyper-focus commercial real estate move, the acquisition of Burgundy Square, a 45,380-square-foot mixed-use property on Miami Avenue in downtown Venice, will also work out well. In addition to the complex itself, Caballeros, 59, seeks to grow interest in Miami Avenue — a shopping afterthought against its nearby destination street big brother, Venice Avenue.
Caballeros wants to buy more commercial complexes, in Venice and other parts of Sarasota County.
In looking at more potential deals, Caballeros says one surprise has been the slow pace of activity, particularly on renovations. The Burgundy Square purchase, says Caballeros, came together relatively quickly because his offer included a down payment of 50% cash.
In Guatemala, commercial real estate was mostly a side business for Caballeros, who is an attorney. Lester, managing partner of Tampa-based Florida Growth Partners, helps emerging growth businesses find access to capital across the Southeast. Lester and Bosl were co-presenters at a Tampa Bay Innovation Center Tech Talk titled “How do the money folks view your company?” The talk was held May 10 at the Microsoft Tampa headquarters. A proforma of the company’s financial projections should include reasons for projected costs and revenues, says Bosl. And a final key point with these documents, he says, is to recognize everyone has a competitor. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) fined two Raymond James companies a total of $17 million for “widespread failures related to the firms’ anti-money laundering (AML) programs,” a statement says. Lakeland Regional Health promoted Danielle Drummond to its newly created role of chief operating officer.
Drummond will oversee the medical center, physician group, Hollis Cancer Center and clinical joint ventures, a statement says. Since joining Lakeland Regional Health in 2013, Drummond has helped lead the Clark and Daughtrey Medical Group transition and the expansion of the Hollis Cancer Center.
Tervis Tumbler, one of the largest employers and manufacturers in the Sarasota-Manatee region, named Rogan Donelly president. Donelly, 31, has served in a variety of positions in his seven years with the drinkware company, a statement says. Donelly will assume the president’s role from Pat Redmond, who will assist with the transition and remain on the company’s board of directors. Neal Communities, the 45th ranked homebuilder nationwide on Builder Magazine’s list of the 100 top homebuilders, reported a steady sales pace in April.
The Lakewood Ranch-based homebuilder had 101 new home sales from Hillsborough County to Collier County for the month, a statement says.
Fort Myers-based SalusCare promoted Stacey Cook-Hawk to president and CEO, a statement says.
The Southeast Chapter of the American Association of Airport Executives named Robert Ball, executive director of the Lee County Port Authority, the 2016 airport professional of the year. Ball directs the administration, operations and development of Southwest Florida International Airport and Page Field in Fort Myers and is on the board for Airports Council International-North America. NAPLES — The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club was named one of the top three beachfront hotels nationwide in a Smart Meetings magazine reader survey. The magazine’s readers include meeting professionals and association executives, according to a statement. The Paradisus Punta Cana Resort in the Dominican Republic won the gold medal in the best beach category and The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach won the bronze.
SARASOTA — Despite still waiting on the Sarasota County Commission’s approval for redevelopment, U.S. Medallion Home bought 49 acres near South Tamiami Trail and Bispham Road for $3.9 million this month, according to Sarasota County filings. Hundreds of Gulf Gate residents had protested the plan’s density and privacy features with yard signs, postings on the Gulf Gate Community Association website and a sizable presence — all wearing red — at the May 5 meeting, according to the Sarasota Observer, sister paper of the Business Observer. But based on the county’s future land use map encouraging infill and the demand for golf course redevelopment statewide, the planning commission ultimately recommended the county commission approve the rezone at a meeting in July. Last month, Mercedes was the number one premium brand in the UK sales charts, with registrations up 13.5 per cent compared to the same month in 2012. My wife recently purchased a Mercedes car from Marshalls South Lakes, however although I have contacted them to explain the car was purchased by my wife, it belongs to my wife they still in insist on sending ALL information, surveys, etc.etc.
Five years, but you could argue that I was already consulting and convincing people on their new car purchases from the age of 5 on!
It's a great opportunity to promote a fun and exciting industry and encourage other enthusiasts.
The 2.54-mile, 12-turn facility located in Braselton, Georgia is receiving a fresh repavement and other capital improvements. A All three teams are expected to have their cars present at the third annual ALMS Winter Test at Sebring on January 22-24.A "Until we get to Sebring for the tests it will be hard to tell," said Flying Lizard's Darren Law. Kimi Raikkonen placed 13th on the list, Jarno Trulli ranked 42nd just ahead of Mark Webber while Jenson Button was 49th out of 50 drivers listed. Canadian Gilles Villeneuve was ranked 11th; Alain Prost finished 14th while Niki Lauda was 18th.
Carnegie, who is known as the voice of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, retired in May after calling 61 Indy 500 races.
Above all I am disappointed for Josep-Maria Servia, who will not be present this year,a€? Schlesser said. While the series utilizes well-known tracks for their German rounds, some rounds abroad have changed. For Round 10 of the American Le Mans Series, event organizers have received more than 400 online pledges to volunteer for the September race. With the American Le Mans Series partnering with the IRL for a three-day race weekend, community interest has been running rampant. SIRIUS NASCAR Radio will provide the most comprehensive, in-depth radio coverage of NASCAR, with live coverage of NASCAR races and a lineup of exclusive talk shows hosted by two-time Nextel Cup Champion Tony Stewart, Charlotte Observer beat reporter and columnist David Poole, broadcasters Marty Snider, Matt Yocum and John Kernan, and other current and former drivers. The wheel can be used to alter traction control settings, change gears, apply rev limiter, adjust fuel air mix, change brake pressure and call the radio.
Kirk Shelmerdine, a former pit boss for the late Dale Earnhardt, has been an unsuccessful, underfunded and undersponsored driver.
The couple married Wednesday before 60 guests at the Grande Colonial Hotel in the La Jolla area of San Diego, Taylor's manager, Lou Taylor, told Us Weekly magazine in a story posted on its Web site Thursday night. Felix Sabates wants to give his Bobcats stock, which he values at about $1.34 million, to the foundation that supports Carolinas HealthCare System. The car of tomorrow features JGRS's new graphic design palate which was designed by NASCAR Artist Sam Bass. The Dakar Rally, arguably the worlda€™s most demanding and grueling motorsports event, will start Jan. Many race moments and community achievements are listed in what was truly an exciting year of racing for the 2-mile oval. Castroneves passed the dominate Vitor Meira late in the race and held on, making him the speedwaya€™s 13th different race winner in as many events. Kahne won the race off of pit road against Carl Edwards and was awarded the victory after the red-flag came out on lap 129 for rain. The rising star of the IRL IndyCar Series has had two of the worst finishes of her career at the 2-mile oval, including a 17th place finish in the 2006 event. Stremme, piloting the #61 Hantz Group Dodge managed to lap the entire field and led a race-record 99 of 100 laps en route to his first career victory at MIS. After race-leader Burney Lamar suffered a mechanical problem with two laps remaining, new race leader T.J. In 2005, Sebastien was the lead mechanic for Graham Rahal's Star Mazda program, and also won the 2005 SCCA Atlantic national championship with Rahal as his driver.
For Series President and CEO Scott Atherton, the off-season hasn't left much time to review some of the remarkable accomplishments from 2006: record attendance at events, all-time marks in television and Internet viewership and unmatched manufacturer involvement. As most people who follow our sport know, that is how we feel and view the American Le Mans Series.
We have instructed our teams that this will be as much a media event as well as a mechanical shakedown for the teams. Goodya€™s has continued its relationship with the camp through donations and special events such as having five campers serve as grand marshals at last yeara€™s Goodya€™s 250 at Martinsville Speedway. Along with a huge celebration in April 2007 in Martinsville at the Goodya€™s Cool Orange 500, major events celebrating Goodya€™s 30 years in the sport are planned for fans throughout the year. The brand also has continued to sponsor the popular a€?Goodya€™s Headache of the Racea€? given to the NASCAR Cup and Busch driver that suffers the hardest luck in each weeka€™s race. Children under 2 are free while children 3 - 10 are $10 for the festival and $16 for the concert. The German automaker is lighting up the engine -- a component that rarely gets showcased in most vehicles.
It's a natural step, considering the R8 features a clear glass "bonnet" or hood in the rear, designed to show off the car's 420-horsepower 4.2-liter V8.
He’s held other executive positions in the insurance industry and has also worked in accounting and auditing, the statement says. Sharon Binnun, currently the executive vice president of finance, has been appointed to chief accounting Officer. Despite the near full percentage year-over-year decrease, Sarasota-Manatee’s foreclosure rate still sits above the national rate of 1.09%, the CoreLogic report says.
The moves include improving the supply chain and enhancing marketing efforts, the company adds.
Chico’s President and CEO Shelley Broader is confident the company can overcome its troubles.
On a flight from Fort Myers to New York City late in 2015, Hall by chance sat next to Bill Stone, the CEO of SS&C Technologies.
The three-hour flight led to a deal in which Hall sold one-third of his company to SS&C for an undisclosed sum in cash. The company uses sensors in a headset to measure brain activity and with the use of algorithms and software it has developed it can tailor learning programs so people pay attention. After all, schools and teachers could teach more effectively if they knew their students were paying attention. He sold his prior company, Impact Education, to publishing giant Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing in 2010 for an undisclosed sum and used the proceeds to start Nervanix. It plans to use Nervanix’ technology to help train fund administrators more efficiently by designing an attention-grabbing curriculum and alerting them when they’re losing focus.
For example, the company could use sensors in the headsets that airplane pilots wear when in a simulator to measure how well they’re paying attention to their training. The commission voted 4-1 May 24 to turn down the proposal, under the codename Project Mulligan.
That side’s position: Using public money to woo a business in an industry that already struggles to find employees would be a bigger mistake than missing a corporate headquarters opportunity. Singleton Roofing Contractors, for example, told commissioners that approving the incentives would be a slap in the face to him and his peers.
The jobs, he says, were for corporate office work, not in the field, so there wouldn’t be any poaching.
Moving expenses, he adds, even for a company with more than $100 million in annual sales, like this one, are too large to not seek out financial assistance. The Labor Department brainiacs believe that rather than pay time-and-a-half overtime to those salaried employees who previously worked more than 40 hours a week without overtime, employers will hire more people to do the salaried employees’ extra work and avoid paying overtime.
Some employers will cut the salaried employee’s base pay so that his or her new overtime pay ends up at the same level the salaried employee earns now. You put in extra hours with no additional pay on the bet this extra effort would be rewarded later.
Ever since the 1930s of Roosevelt’s New Deal, an insidious government increasingly has forced its way, like an ugly troll taking tolls at the bridge, between what should be a private compact between two people — employer and employee.


But they ignore the powerful, simple fact that in the agreement between employer and employee no one is forced.
Entrepreneurs Bjorn and Kristin Rosinus recently opened the office space off Alico Road in Fort Myers, traditionally a heavy industrial area where cement and dump trucks hog the east-west artery between Interstate 75 and U.S.
In Naples, for example, Venture X offers co-work space in the upscale Mercato shopping center staffed with people who handle mail and make sure the place is tidy. But Rosinus is quick to note that Alico Road is centrally located between Naples and Fort Myers and the Gulf Coast Town Center mall is a short drive away. There’s a white board in the lobby where members can alert each other where they’re going to lunch or happy hour. He noted that a notice on Craigslist has been the most effective form of advertising so far. And less than two months after he took over, he had conversations to launch a tenant representation team to help national businesses expand into the Gulf Coast. Moving through 2016, Drews doesn’t have a specific target client growth goal but expects that figure to grow as the team proves itself.
Hitchcock played defensive tackle for the Florida Gators, and was the co-captain and most valuable player of the 1973 team.
Each broker had information regarding the off-market property, with an 11,000-square-foot house on the lake, three other homes, a boathouse and stables. The deal fell through, but the pair eventually won the listing and quickly found another buyer, for a deal that did close.
The team, for example, has seen heavy interest in Secret Promise, a potential master-planned mixed-use community on an undeveloped 3,747-acre site in Leesburg. Hitchcock worked in the Florida agribusiness industry for 30 years before he got into real estate in 2005. In casual conversations about the industry, or their love for football, the brokers sometimes finish each other’s sentences. Issues of business continuity are certainly at play, but the unique dynamic of maintaining personal relationships is also at the forefront of this difficult transition. An “heir apparent” faces challenges that business school education can’t totally prepare them for, since they’re often dealing with fragile emotions as they seek to lead a smooth transition. Many successors suffer from a lack of trust, fearing they’ll never really hold the power while the current leader is alive; they’re afraid of being stuck in what I call the “Prince Charles effect,” having responsibility with limited power. The transfer of knowledge can be slow and painful, especially in businesses that lack formal governance. The bottom line is that it takes tremendous courage for a current leader to abdicate his or her role in a proactive, focused manner. The more aware a successor is about the issues impacting the leader’s reluctance to move on, the more likely the chances for a smooth transition. I’ve seen it end successfully for businesses and families, and I’ve seen it negatively affect businesses and rip families apart.
Hearin, Erhardt cast off from the boat business to focus on industrial deals — just months before brokerage Cushman & Wakefield bought the firm. Things just fell into place,” says Erhardt, 67, executive director of Cushman & Wakefield’s entire land practice group in North America. In all, he has sold more than 30,000 acres with a transactional volume exceeding $1 billion. These days he works every real estate sector save for golf courses and self-storage facilities. His quarterly “Land Market Overview” goes beyond numbers and data with context, common sense and educated opinion and is considered a must-read for commercial buyers and sellers alike. With several hot spots of hotel development occurring on the Gulf Coast, we asked four leaders in the industry: Is the region in danger of over-saturation?
With the amount of leisure and business travelers, we would argue that downtown Tampa, downtown St. I am more optimistic than many about how quickly these new hotels will be absorbed, because Clearwater Beach has become an exciting and vibrant leisure destination. With 125 existing hotels, there are more than a dozen in the pipeline, of which seven are scheduled to open in 2016 and 2017. As such, these new hotels will likely pull demand from the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport hotels.
Sarasota, in particular, has undergone a major transition since I began development of the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota downtown in the late 1990s. While doing research, Van Buskirk found Verhulst’s formula and discovered that the mathematician had accurately forecast the 1940 U.S.
He moved to Florida in the late 1970s and worked for General Development Corp., one of the state’s largest developers of communities such as North Port and Port Charlotte. Much like the volume of a jar limits the yeast’s growth, Metro Forecasting uses the availability and zoning of land to cap the growth.
For example, in 2002, he forecasted that the 2010 population of Cape Coral would hit 155,179 permanent residents.
Census published population figures in 2010, Van Buskirk had scored the equivalent of a demographic bull’s eye: Cape Coral’s population was 154,305 in 2010.
For example, the company estimates Lehigh Acres’ future population growth could absorb three times the amount of commercial development that’s available now, and Metro Forecasting can identify the right locations. Once they’ve established population models, Metro Forecasting can build more sub-models to identify where schools, parks, water and sewer plants should be located and how much stormwater runoff could result from new-home construction, for example.
Van Buskirk estimates the software represents a $500,000 investment over time and both he and Farmer said they might license it one day. Front Burner is the management firm behind the Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant franchise with 125 locations in 35 states and worldwide.
The office, on 7886 Woodland Center Blvd., near Waters Avenue, is home to 68 employees, including eight hired this year. Those are now the six company principles, and are represented in multiple locations officewide. He’s also implemented unique company policies, such as weekly Toto Tuesdays, where one employee can bring their dog into work.
The office, space the firm moved into, jumps on a millennial-office space theme that crosses industries: open floor plans. This was done on purpose, mostly to avoid an environment where people are over-concerned with the size or location of their office.
The front entrance features company logos and three TVs that rotate through photos of employees, their families and their recent travels.
The cafe-style feel of the lounge areas carry over to the kitchen, creating a space “where you can just huddle up and have these extemporaneous conversations that can result in amazing little sparks of an idea.” And there’s a specially segmented section of the office for when those ideas pop up. Fact is, hoteliers on the Gulf Coast are so confident that they boosted their average daily rates in the first quarter even as occupancies declined. Revenue per available room, a function of rates and occupancy, rose in every market in the region except for Naples. Both in-state and European traffic is likely to remain robust if the Zika virus threat remains under control. Most notably, the Marco Island Marriott Beach resort is spending $300 million, turning into the first luxury JW Marriott on the Gulf Coast.
Revenue per available room, an important metric in the hotel business, is a function of occupancy and rate.
It’s one of the largest manufacturers in the world of frequency control parts for electronic products, from cell phones to computers.
In 2007, the company earned the Horizon Council Industry Appreciation Award for manufacturing. And what must we not change to keep doing the things that made the firm successful in the first place?
That includes a shift from outsourcing many technology and IT functions to having internal people do the work. The economy took first place, at 32%, followed by tax policy and health care, with 16% each category, and then immigration, at 6%. He plans to hold street fairs for tenants and other events, even possibly dipping back to his homeland for a Guatemalan coffee festival. He would also like to work on real estate projects in the region with some of his four adult children, including Harold Caballeros Jr., a graduate of the London School of Economics. Caballeros says he and his family sold several homes and properties in Guatemala to come up with the $4 million for the down payment.
He founded a social ministry in 1983 in his native country, an organization that has since grown to 90 church locations worldwide. Here are five key pieces of advice from Lester and Bosl on how companies can obtain funding. It’s important to have numbers and key metrics that stand out in a format that’s easily digested and shared.
For investors to dedicate money and time, “They want to at least believe that you like what you’re doing and spend your free time doing it or thinking about it,” he says.
She previously worked as vice president of operations for Lankenau Medical Center in Philadelphia. Readers nominated and voted on a variety of hotel sectors, from best city to best airport hotel.
Senate candidate Carlos Beruff’s firm closed on the sale of the former Gulf Gate Golf Course.
The move comes after the Sarasota County Planning Commission’s May 5 endorsement of the homebuilder’s plans to develop a 108-home gated community on the course.
Room for 4 in total luxury and comfort, AWD traction 0-60 in under 4.5 seconds with a turbo Lamborghini V10 and room to haul more than enough cargo for weeks touring every major ski resort on any continent.
Ita€™s the first time we have a Spanish driver and I hope he will became the new Fernando Alonso, the World Champion in F1.
Series drivers and teams will compete on Saturday, September 1 on the 2-mile circuit at Belle Isle.
Later this year event volunteers will join with the Friends of Belle Isle for the annual Belle Isle Spring Clean-up. On New Year's Day, SIRIUS becomes the Official Satellite Radio Partner of NASCAR, making SIRIUS the exclusive satellite radio home of every Nextel Cup Series, Busch Series and Craftsman Truck Series race, carrying the live broadcasts of Motor Racing Network (MRN), Performance Racing Network (PRN) and the IMS Radio Network's broadcast from Indianapolis Motor Speedway. SPEED, which began broadcasting NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races live and exclusively in 2003, will continue as the home to the series for at least the next eight seasons. The Cuban-born Sabates, also a prominent NASCAR team owner, is a member of the system's board.
A #24 DuPont Impala SS COT-design built by JGRS will be part of DuPont's display in Daytona USA at Daytona International Speedway throughout the 2007 season. Earnhardt went on to win the race, causing Edwards to later purposely run into Jra€™s car and confronting the popular driver in Gatorade Victory Lane. Kahnea€™s car was being cheered on by Adam Sandler, the racea€™s grand marshal, whose movie a€?Clicka€? was sponsoring Kahnea€™s car in the race. Last July, she suffered a mechanical failure with two laps remaining, which caused a foot-stomping tirade down pit road.
Bell suffered an accident with Frank Kimmel, thus handing the lead over to Sherman, who got back on the lead lap 20 laps before.
In 2004, Sebastien won the "Mechanic of the Year" award in the Zetec Formula 2000 championship.A Sebastien hails from Brossard Quebec, which is a suburb of Montreal. The goal is to have as many cars as possible in proper livery and drivers and crews in proper suits with the proper embroidery and patches. Goodya€™s continues to reach fans at several races each season with its popular a€?Goodya€™s Fast Relief Zonea€?.
As you know, while these series are similar, theya€™re not the same, and if youa€™re a race team unaccustomed to the IRLa€™s equipment ita€™s very difficult to jump in and master it. In just over one year we have designed, developed and built a prototype car, undertaken over two thousand miles of successful testing, and then built ten production cars.
The marketing realignment and cuts, combined with a separate cost-reduction plan announced in April, is expected to bring $65 million to $85 million in annual savings, with $15 million of those savings coming in fiscal 2016, the company says. If approved, the company, unnamed in public documents, would have been eligible for more than $1.5 million in state and local subsidies in return for 180 jobs over six years. The company, adds Sitterley, agreed to submit to written clauses that would hold it to not hiring local people. The vote, according to two county commissioners, was based on flaws in the process, not against the idea of using incentives, in general, to lure a headquarters. If an employer exploits or the employee is unproductive, the two are free to terminate their agreement. That’s because there are 26 offices that you can rent by the month from $579 to $679, depending on the size, and cubicles from $439 a month. Co-work space was popularized in the tech world as freelance software developers collaborated with each other in cheap dilapidated warehouses. Minto has been building for decades on Florida’s east coast but has made a big push into Southwest Florida with developments from Naples to Sun City Center since the recession. Taylor was an assistant football coach at Lakeland High School for a decade, during an era when the team won six state championships and “mythical” national championship twice. The Realtors Land Institute recently awarded the team an Accredited Land Consultant Networking Award for the deal. The list price for the site, about 85 miles northeast of Tampa and 44 miles outside Orlando, is $95 million.
Taylor was with the Polk County School District for 23 years, where he taught math and later ran the in-school-suspension program. The mantra “that’s not how we have done always things here” can be deafening to the next generation who are trying to find a respectful way to get their voice heard. By being patient with the current leader and empathetic to his situation, successors can earn their first leadership “stripes” by making the transfer of power far more comfortable for everyone.
In fact, Sarasota and Clearwater are the only cities where full service hotels are currently under construction. In 1996, there were virtually no major hotels downtown except a Holiday Inn, where the Westin is now under construction. I think if anyone believes there is an abundance of hotels they are ignoring what should be obvious: For almost every new hotel, I can name one that’s gone. Petersburg recently unveiled plans for new amenities at its Snell Isle facilities, including a new grill, swimming pool with cabana lounges and new locker rooms. Integrated Device Technology, a California-based manufacturer, acquired Fox for $30 million in cash in early 2012.
The feat, a drop of 386 feet, was part of Over the Edge, an event hosted by the WellCare Community Foundation. The couple’s reward: a helmet, climbing gear and a one-way ticket down the side of a 28-story skyscraper. With opportunities all over, Caballeros zeroed in on a small strip of Brickell Avenue, in the financial hub of downtown Miami. He’s now getting ready to spend at least $500,000 on a major renovation project, starting with new roofs on several apartments, and other upgrades to the residential side of the property. If the gross margin is 50% from overpaying the sales team, that’s important to note, Bosl adds. Manufacturers and most dealerships understand the importance, loyalty, buying power and trend setting ability of the gay community.
Racing with Mercedes was fantastic, it made me more professional," Webber told Italian racing magazine Autosprint.
In addition to the live race broadcast, SIRIUS will take fans into the cars and pits by devoting up to 10 additional channels that will carry driver-to-crew communications during Nextel Cup Series races.
The wheel alone can cost about $40,000, and with carbon fiber construction, weighs in at 1.3 kilograms. All of these things will enable the domestic and international media to get a positive first glimpse of our Series for 2007 and start their reporting for the year. Racing icon Richard Petty and two-time NEXTEL Cup champion Tony Stewart both serve as spokespeople for Goodya€™s. Each ticket purchased for either the festival or concert will include a one-year subscription to Country Weekly Magazine. Unfortunately, if you dona€™t give a good account of yourself, it hurts your total program and the perception of people on the outside. The previous cuts, designed to decentralize its marketing and digital commerce units, “places the decision makers directly into the company’s three brands,” the company says. They were often messy places from late-night work fueled by pizza and super-caffeinated drinks. Minto ranked third behind Neal Communities and WCI Communities among regionally based builders for closings in 2015. He didn’t want to sell that plot, but he owned development land in Naples he was thinking about putting up for sale. With football, Taylor coached defensive backs for 21 years and was the defensive coordinator for 11 years. She has 27 years of experience working with key executives, business leaders and Fortune 500 companies as a behavioral psychologist, consultant, coach and trainer. Currently, there are only about three dozen new hotels in various stages of development from pre-planning to construction.
The market tends to overshoot, but the underlying fundamentals should be able to effectively absorb it all in the near- to medium-term. Company moved into newly renovated office geared toward motivating and retaining employees.
In total, it’s a long-term, high-six figure commitment to the company’s growth, a big step for any small business.
The charitable arm of WellCare, a Tampa-based managed health care firm with $13.9 billion in annual sales, donated $5,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay to support the event, held April 30. Caballeros ran an unsuccessful campaign for president in Guatemala in 2011, and was named minister of foreign affairs for the country for a one-year term, in 2012. Linda Busby, a former anti-money laundering compliance officer with Raymond James & Associates, was fined $25,000 and suspended for three months. SIRIUS will combine the race broadcast with the driver-to-crew chatter on these channels, allowing fans to hear the overall race call and the in-car audio of a driver on a single channel throughout the race.
The additions of race-ready Cars of Tomorrow to the JGRS fleet is part of a successful growth phase for the Jeff Gordon Racing School and Mario Andretti Racing School, which will combine for more than 350 dates in 2007 while adding authentic Nextel Cup team cars direct from on-track competition in 2005 and 2006 as well as new Toyota Camry's as they become available.
The Versus channel will provide more than 29 hours of Dakar Rally coverage throughout the month of January. This event will also give our teams the opportunity to accomplish their photographic work and really set the stage for the upcoming season.
Look what happened to Rahala€™s team the first time he tried to do Indy as a Champ Car team. All of these markets often turn down conventions and conferences due to lack of hotel rooms and meeting facilities. The market has shifted to downtowns, because for many hotel guests, the beach is not important. For example my dealership has had a booth at LA Pride the last 3 years, we have also donated the Saab 9-3 Convertibles in past years for the Pride Parade. 29 denying his request to transfer the shares, saying the NBA does not allow not-for-profit or charitable entities to own an interest in its franchises.
In addition to being a distraction from the Champ Car season (look at how it affected Bruno when he got hurt in the crash with A.J.
Unfortunately, I never got the chance and since I wasn't out yet I told my parents I was looking at the all new 03 Porsche Cayenne on the showroom floor of the Porsche dealership I happened to be driving by. 18 Daytona 500, his highly visible racing helmet will feature a unique green and black paint scheme with Monster Energy branding.
I think we’ll continue to see the trend of fewer hotels on keys in the future and more in Gulf Coast downtowns.
The #7 Nextel Cup Series pit crew also will wear Monster Energy branded helmets, and Monster Energy will be prominently featured as an associate sponsor on the NASCAR teama€™s equipment and vehicles including its track-side merchandise trailer.
