Steve Ritchie Develops Diversity Programs for Papa Johns

Papa Johns recently announced that it believes that they can be a much better company in terms of cultural sensitivity. The company has said that its customers expect a more respectful company that embraces people from all walks of life. This is after the company has dealt with a major blow to its reputation back in July. At that time, founder John Schnatter made remarks that were offensive and this led to the company’s reputation going in steep decline. Schnatter was removed as executive chairman in July but has spent a lot of time looking to regain control of the company. Founder John Schnatter believes that the company is his life’s work and is looking to help restore its reputation in the near future.

After a recent campaign where customers expressed their dissatisfaction with the company, chief executive officer Steve Ritchie provided a letter to all customers, employees and franchisees. This letter was drafted in an effort to assure theme that the company is looking to resolve its issue of cultural and racial insensitivity. The letter has been made to also help contain the losses the company has suffered since July. Sales for the company have been down in recent months as they have dropped as much as 10% over this period of time. Due to the recent dropoff in sales, Steve Ritchie has predicted the company to have revenues decline by up to 10% within the next year.

Steve Ritchie has looked to put in more effort to help revive the reputation of Papa Johns. One of the programs that he has introduced is unconscious bias training which will be done to help encourage diversity and inclusion. It will also investigate the company’s practices in terms of how it treats people of all racial and cultural backgrounds. This will be done to find out more about its practices pertaining to diversity and inclusion. To help get more feedback and advice on how to best resolve this issue, Steve Ritchie visited a number of cities in the United States to get information from franchisees and employees. Ritchie is looking to help bring communities together and make Papa Johns a highly reputable pizza restaurant again in the near future.

Ex-Sherpa Capital CEO Shervin Pishevar Caught The Trump Tweeting Illness In February

Donald Trump is the tweeting champion of the world, according to the people who follow him on Twitter. Trump likes to go around government systems and let people know what he’s thinking. But according to some financial investors, what he’s thinking doesn’t make much sense unless you think like Trump. Some people are saying the same thing about Shervin Pishevar. Shervin Pishevar is the former managing director of Menlo Ventures. Menlo Ventures is a venture capital firm that spotted Uber when it was a floundering startup. Pishevar is the guy who thought Uber was going to be big, so he invested $26 million in Uber. That investment is worth $5 billion today.

Shervin Pishevar’s investment resume is impressive. He’s been on the ground floor of startups like Warby Parker and Airbnb. He started Sherpa Capital in 2013 so he could do his own thing in the investment world, but he resigned at the end of 2017. Pishevar was silent at the beginning of 2018, but in February, Shervin Pishevar came out tweeting. Investors who know how he can spot startup winners sooner than other investors are taking Shervin’s tweet advice. Investors are leaving the stock market because of one tweet in Shervin Pishevar’s 21-hour tweetstorm reminded them the stock market is prime for another crash. A 6000-point crash, according to Pishevar.

Another Pishevar tweet claims the national debt, interest rates, and inflation are forming a perfect financial storm. And Trump’s trade agenda is fueling that storm even though Shervin didn’t name Trump in any of the 50 plus tweets he put out there on Twitter.

Some investors aren’t sure why Shervin Pishevar spent the time tweeting about issues he can’t control. But other investors know Pishevar doesn’t get on Twitter to make a name for himself. His reputation as a venture capitalist puts him in a club of venture capitalists who know how to make money even when financial markets start to go south. That’s why his tweetstorm is so interesting. Pishevar is letting the world know he’s back. He wants to show investors how to be flexible during turbulent economic times, and his tweetstorm shows them what he’s thinking.

Sahm Adrangi

Having a true sense of the business environment is extremely important to any investment firm. Many firms will go out of their way to get the best researchers that are able to spot the trends that nobody else can. Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC was lucky enough to have one of the most gifted researchers of the decade, Sahm Adrangi, fall right into their laps upon their founding.

Sahm Adrangi started his career in 2003, shortly after graduating Yale University with his BA in Economics. Interested in the business world and how companies create leverage, he became a credit analyst first at Duestche Bank and then at Chanin Partners. Ever in search of a more interesting career path, Sahm joined the multi-billion dollar portfolios of Longacre Fund Management as an analyst. There he learned exactly what it meant to be an investment banker. With a $300,000 loan from his parents, Sahm Adrangi created a new company called Kerrisdale Capital Management.

Kerrisdale started with a portfolio of just $1 million and has quickly grown to having over $150 million in managed funds. This growth was due, in large part, to the research and investment strategies put out by Adrangi on a daily basis. Much of this research has to do with finding those trends that nobody else has thought of, such as finding shorts that have been overhyped by other investors, or those longs that are not being purchased at the rate they should be. He will also use his research to challenge how the market is looking at a specific sector, or to change the understanding of certain business strategies that a large firm is taking. Adrangi has even used his research to spark investigations into certain companies that has uncovered fraud.

Now Sahm Adrangi has taken a new step in developing an expertise in telecommunications, biotechnologies, and mining. With this new knowledge and body of research, he is hoping that he can help to create a larger portfolio of managed funds for Kerrisdale and bring a larger bottom line to the companies that he advises. Sahm Adrangi is definitely a banker to watch in the future.
