A graduate of Oregon State University, Wes Edens is an influential business person in finance. He is one of the founders and principals of Fortress, a market leader in the alternative investment arena. His involvement with the company has seen it go from a small startup to one of the most respected alternative investment companies in the world. He has contributed significantly to its success by leading it to significant investments such as the new railroad in Florida.
Apart from Fortress, Wes also has a deep interest in sports. Seeing as he cannot practically play, Wes Edens combines his business know-how with his love for sports by investing in specific teams. For instance, in 2014, Mr. Edens bought significant stakes in the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks.
Back then, The Bucks were nothing close to what they are today, but through his exemplary leadership and business skills turned it into one of the best teams there is in the NBA. However, the Bucks aren’t the only team that will benefit from the man’s exceptional leadership abilities as he recently bought shares in Aston Villa. While to most people this may not seem like a wise move, Wes Edens has done this before, and as such has what it takes to help Aston Villa reclaim its place in the premier league.
What’s in it for him?
If he manages to turn the fortunes of the team around and enable it to regain its place in the premier league, Wes Edens will not only become one of the most respected team owners but will also reap a lot of benefits. This is because the premier league is the highest and also most illustrious sports leagues not only in England but in the world. Every year, the league generates hundreds of millions in profits through its widely watched matches, the sale of merchandise, endorsements, partnerships, and player deals. The league has also brought forth some of the most talented soccer players in the world such as Christiano Ronaldo.
Therefore, if all goes as planned, Wes Edens will enjoy high profits and make a name for himself in the halls of sports.
