Features Companies to Watch

Douglas DiSanti – Neon Bloom Inc.

Douglas DiSanti has seen firsthand the dramatic impacts of medicinal marijuana. When his grandfather was struggling with a life-threatening disease, the only time he felt relief—and could carry on a substantive conversation—was when he was given cannabis in oil and pill form. Likewise, DiSanti’s mentor and partner Yuri Sernande suffers from chronic Lyme disease, which […]

James Schenck – PenFed Credit Union

He’s long felt an affinity for Puerto Rico, the island’s residents so often volunteering for the armed services just as a younger James Schenck did as an Army aviation officer. Serve those who serve you, he emphasizes in his capacity as president and CEO of the PenFed Credit Union in McLean, Virginia. And how Puerto […]

John Quattrocchi – Verona, N.J., Board of Education

Much had to go through John Quattrocchi’s mind this past winter when he stepped down from the Verona, New Jersey, Board of Education after 15 years, serving several of those three-year terms as president, including the last hurrah. Not that he was feeling old and tired; this affable man seems to bustle with an understated […]

Ron Ahlensdorf Jr. – Summit Valuation Solutions

President, with a capital “P.” It’s a role that countless professionals, and more than a few politicians, spend a lifetime trying to achieve, often at the expense of their health and happiness. Now that he’s earned the badge himself, Ron Ahlensdorf Jr., head of the Toledo-based Summit Valuation Solutions (SVS), has a dark secret to […]

Brenda Schmidt – Solera Health

Call it the match.com for health care—a platform that connects people to a curated and managed network of digital apps and in-person community providers in order to help them maintain and improve their well-being. The technology offering presents a cost-saving approach to ensure that care continues beyond the four walls of a clinical setting and […]

Christopher G. McDaniel – RiskBlock Alliance

The sharing of information being essential among insurance companies, Christopher G. McDaniel says it shouldn’t take too much doing for more and more carriers to see the value in becoming members of an industry-owned blockchain consortium that he’s fronted since late 2017. “The insurance industry is very unique,” he tells Vision from London, where he’s […]

Damon Schramm – Bite Squad

Merrill Lynch is bullish on America. So is Bite Squad, but primarily on Middle America—the large towns and smaller cities that don’t so often appear on the radar screens of its bigger competitors. Hence a land of opportunity for a still-young company that’s filling the niche of delivering freshly cooked restaurant meals to customers who […]

Hector Garcia – Bayer (Andean)

Say you’re a general counsel for a major corporation. A modest acquisition—something in the seven-to-nine-figure range—might take up a few months of bandwidth, not including the integration process that can stretch on for years. If the company’s really in growth mode, maybe you handle more than one. And Bayer’s recent $62.5 billion acquisition of agribusiness […]

Todd McTavish

It was a game-changer, for sure. Last May’s Murphy vs. NCAA case in which the Supreme Court by a 6-3 vote left it up to the states to decide whether they would join Nevada, Delaware, Oregon and Montana in legalizing sports betting and dealing with its ramifications. Could be a sizable pot of money with […]

Unified Ag Solutions

Roger Nesbitt tried, really tried, to retire, but he just couldn’t do it. “I was bored to death,” he recalls. It was only a few weeks before the stir-craziness got to be too much and he just had to get back to work. Simply put, “I was looking for a new venture to get into, […]
