From Chairman of the Board to the Company Administrator

Unitel, the leading telecommunications company in Angola, replaced the firm’s chairman of the board held by Isabel dos Santos. She lost the leadership of the board at the company after allegations concerning financial management while in the position. However, the businesswoman remains in the company’s executive team but will be under restrictions. According to her statement, she praised the committee members from their work and dedication for furthering the company goals hence improving on growth and profits.

The move to lower her position from the company president to an administrator comes after several changes were made at Unitel. The proposal recommended by PT Ventures (Oi) and supported by Sonangol witnessed significant changes and replacement. Some of them include the appointment of the new director general, Miguel Geraldes replacing Englishman Anthony and a new finance supervisor, Joao Boa Quipipa. The events come after a Paris court ruled out that some Unitel shareholders are required to pay about six hundred million euros to Brazilians as compensation on dividend payments.

In a statement released by an anonymous source, Isabel dos Santos will seize from making company decisions unless authorized by the PTV and Sonangol. She is also banned from making statements on behalf of Unitel as well as determining the company destiny. Unitel comprises of four shareholders each with an equal share of twenty-five percent of the total assets. They include Sonangol; PT Ventures; Vidatel, a company owned by Isabel dos Santos; and Geni, owned by Leopoldino Nascimento who is also the chairman of the board of vice president meetings.

Article Title: Ted Bauman And Opportunities

Article Text:

Ted Bauman knows that opportunities lie all around, as a seeker of value, Ted Bauman goes in search of opportunities wherever he his. Ted Bauman asks questions, he meets new people, he learns and grows. Ted Bauman knows that one can find value if only they keep an open mind and make certain to keep their ears open to listen and to learn.

As such, they may encounter new opportunities like that of what is present in We Work.

Where We Work Stands Right Now

To understand WeWork’s success, you would need to look at how the company has grown over its years of operation.

Founded in 2010, WeWork has opened 425 offices in 36 countries in the past 9 years. That is not a mean feat at all. But that’s not even the best part of We Work’s story.

In 2018, WeWork recorded an increase in its revenue, with the annual revenue raising by 106% and clocking in around $1.8 billion. But the company’s net loss also showed an increase in a figure of $1.9 billion.

For any other real estate company, this would have painted a very concerning image. But that concern is not for WeWork, which has continued operating with the same fervor as before. In fact, it may be going for an IPO soon.

How WeWork Sold Its Vision

WeWork has been focused on forming its brand image more as a community than a real estate provider. That is why, its company image has been working in its favor even when it has gone into a loss despite doubling its profits.

All of this has been possible due to the “cultish” approach that WeWork has formed for itself.

Founded in 2010, WeWork has been on the path of immense growth in the past few years. Its co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Adam Newmann recently sat down in an interview with Bloomberg, where it was revealed just how WeWork has been able to set itself apart despite its high cash-burn phase.

It’s all in the message.

Neumann, who focuses on “energy and spirituality”, has focused on making every tenant of the WeWork co-working space as a member of its community.
