Manaira Shopping Mall, Robert’s Biggest project:

Open in 1989, the Manaira Shopping Mall was built to become a center of gathering in the Brazilian city of Joao Pessoa. When Roberto Santiago bought the plot of land that the mall was built on in 1987, it is hard to tell whether or not he knew how big this mall would become. The Manaira Mall is the largest shopping mall in Joao Pessoa and it contains cinemas, a food court, game areas, gyms, concert halls and a school. On the roof of the mall is a concert hall known as the Domus Hall. Over two stories high, the hall seats 4000 and it has a maximum capacity of 10000 viewers. It is equipped with the latest sound technology, and the entire area is soundproof. the Domus Hall has hosted concerts, exhibits, conferences, and weddings, and performers come from all over the world to play in this concert hall because of its popularity. Since the mall was opened, it has seen five different expansions to make it the largest shopping center in the state of Paraiba, and it contains 280 vendors.

Beauty, Beauty Products, HEALTH

In just 9 years, Jeunesse Global has gone from a complete non-entity to being one of the most rapidly expanding and important players in the international health and beauty industry. This rapid rise is attributable to the expert guidance of its founders, industry veterans Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis.

Ray and Lewis had long been fixtures of the North American direct-marketing business. Their dozens of companies and products have become household names, and the couple enjoyed the respect and admiration of their peers. But after a long and successful career, Ray and Lewis decided that they finally wanted to hang it up and try the retired life. Unfortunately, they quickly discovered that they were not cut out for the endless boredom and lack of meaning that so often awaits those who retire from careers about which they are deeply passionate. Ray and Lewis quickly found other ways to fill their time.

One of those ways was through founding yet another company. Run out of the couple’s garage, Jeunesse Global quickly began growing from a hundred-dollar hobby business into a serious enterprise. By the end of its first year, the company had sold nearly $1 million in products. By the fifth year of operation, it was clear that Ray and Lewis had long since ceased being retired. Now, they were steering a multi-million-dollar company that counted thousands of distributors and tens of thousands of customers among its ranks.

The secret behind the company’s rapid ascent has been its innovative and effective products. One example of such a product is the firm’s foundation and bronzer. Known as NV, the foundation comes in nine different shades, allowing users to match it precisely to the skin tone that they desire. NV’s ability to match skin tones has also made it very popular throughout the East Asian markets where it is often used as a mild skin lightener.

But NV’s real selling point is its ability to erase years off of a user’s face. Containing the powerful APT-200 molecule, NV erases wrinkles, prevents new wrinkles from forming and restores elasticity and a youthful appearance to the face.

Business, OSI Group

The food industry is something that people like thinking they know about, but they only know about trending restaurants. The real food industry is a place run by large corporations; they own over 90 percent of the entire food market of the world.

Most of the food people see in grocery stores, particularly canned, bagged, and frozen, come from food corporations. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s unhealthy or processed; it just means someone in a lab came up with the idea. As people become more health conscious and aware of their food, it’s more important than ever that these corporations change their ways if they want to survive.

If these companies can find the right mix of innovation and imagination, they could easily solve world hunger and the food-safety issues plaguing a lot of nations around the world. Companies like OSI Group are trying to just that while also improving food options for their current consumers.

OSI Group is a premier food company that specializes in concept-to-table food solutions that are a delight to all types of taste palettes. Using their international infrastructure and financial resources, they’ve created some of the world’s most famous food solutions.

They also use those perks to help customers bring their food ideas to life, distributing them all over the world once they’re developed and produced. There are so many reasons food companies should work with OSI Group. The most impressive is their global flavor knowledge; they can bring any idea to life thanks to their culinary experts.

Another area the company excels in is winning awards. They haven’t won the most awards, but they come in second quite easily. That doesn’t mean they always win second place awards, they just haven’t won the most yet; they’ve skills more centuries in them.

In 2016, the British Safety Council awarded their United Kingdom branch with the Globe of Honor Award. This award is given to the company that displays excellence in environmental risk management strategies. The award was presented to OSI Group at Drapers’ Hall in London at a British Safety Council luncheon.

At the luncheon, many other companies won similar awards, but the British Safety Council wanted no one to take credit away from OSI. They’re an industry leader for a reason.

Entrepreneur, OSI Group

OSI Group is a privately owned American food supply company that supplies businesses in the retail and food service industries. OSI Group is headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, and they are known particularly for their exceptional meat processing facilities. The OSI Group has gained a sterling reputation for providing quality products and custom solutions for their business partners.

In 2016, OSI expanded by acquiring the Dutch food company Baho foods, which specializes in ‘convenience’ foods such as deli meats and assorted snacks. The acquisition was part of a broader initiative to help OSI group, which is an American company, to expand their presence in Europe. Prior to the move, OSI had five subsidiary companies with manufacturing plants in Germany or the Netherlands, which serve a total of 18 different European countries.

The Baho acquisition came on the heels of OSI’s purchase of a former Tyson Foods manufacturing plant in June of 2017. The plant, which is located on the South Side of Chicago, was purchased for 7.4 million USD, is close to many of OSI’s other Chicago facilities, which was a factor in the decision to purchase the 200,000 square foot facility. Before the plant closed, Tyson used it to manufacture prepared foods for the hospitality industry, especially meats such as chicken and meatballs. This made the plant a natural fit for the OSI Group, which has built its reputation largely on the processing of quality meat products.

2016 also saw the UK division of OSI awarded the Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council in recognition of their excellent management of environmental risks. OSI was one of only 18 companies worldwide awarded a Globe of Honour, and companies had to have already earned a 5-star rating from the Safety Council’s environmental management audit scheme to be eligible for the award. The OSI Group has always prided itself on managing environmental risks and minimizing impact while manufacturing quality foods, so winning one of the 18 Globe of Honour awards provided a meaningful recognition of the company’s efforts.

Business, Businessman, Entrepreneur, HEALTH, Surgeon

There are many doctors out there across the country, but few have the ambition that Dr. Mark McKenna has. Mark is a highly-skilled and board-certified medical doctor that has mixed his skill with his talent for business. Dr. Mark McKenna has gained a great deal of recognition from both industries thanks to his success and various contributions to both fields. Mark has said a great deal of his knowledge was built during his education at Tulane University as well as his hands-on experience working at his father’s private medical practice. Mark spent years working with his father building his knowledge of medicine and perfecting his techniques, which has made him a highly sought-after surgeon today. Mark knew medicine wasn’t his only interest at a young age, however, and he knew he could do more with his intellect.

This is why Dr. Mark McKenna started up his own real estate firm while working with his father known as McKenna Venture Investments in New Orleans. Mark’s talent was the real deal, as his first company was a tremendous success, despite the highly demanding careers he was juggling together. Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005 and Mark, unfortunately, lost much of his first business, but he was able to regain his assets in a relatively short period of time, especially through his contributions helping rebuild the community and investing in properties.

Dr. Mark McKenna is always thinking of new ideas to satisfy his desire to be an entrepreneur. After Mark moved to Atlanta in the wake of Katrina, he started up the aesthetic wellness company known as ShapeMed. This company was so successful that Mark managed to sell it for a bundle of Life Time Fitness. Lately, Mark is focused on OVME. So far OVME operates in Atlanta and Nashville, but Mark plans to expand in the near future. This innovative company is bringing treatments right to clients doors and saving them a trip to the dreaded doctor’s office by ordering products right through their app.
