Magnises functions as a high class social club for wealthy individuals between the ages of 12 and 34 years old. Membership at Magnises also comes with exclusive access to the clubs black card. This card not only racks up rewards points for being used at dozens of different locations, but can be linked to an individuals bank account for easy use.
For millennials with active socials lives, the black card is the perfect accessory to show them the finer things life has to offer. Not only does the card allow for many discounts, but also allows members to take part in exclusive events, rewards, and even vacations.
Billy got his inspiration for the black card by looking at similar companies that offered rewards for using their cards, such as American Express.

Not to mention it’s a way for individuals to show off their status and wealth.
According to Crunchbase, Billy McFarland founded Magnises back in 2013, and since then the company has managed to build partnerships with over 50 different businesses that offer exclusive perks to black card holders. With an annual fee of just $250 dollars, the black card pays for itself with all the rewards that come with it.
Today, Magnises resides in Manhattan in the Rivington Hotel, which was a move to appeal to the generations leading professionals. The penthouse for Magnises also functions as a social lounge and club for its members, giving them a place to organize private events, parties, and even meetings. In the near future, Magnises will continue to expand into new cities to bring the experience to more millennials of the generation.

Andy Wirth is a philanthropist and businessman who is the CEO and owner of Squaw Valley Resort. It’s located in the beautiful Olympic Valley Mountains where many people visit to enjoy the breath taking views and the beauty from every angle. The resort is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, especially during the winter months. Many skier’s take advantage of the resort and utilize it to its fullest, visiting every day and living their dream. Wirth has worked hard to ensure that maintenance on the resort continues to approve the overall experience along with the up-keep necessary to ensure the success of the resort.

The exciting part about the gondola is that it will allow visitors to travel from on end of the resort to the end quite quickly and successfully, allowing them to fully enjoy both resorts. Before, there was no way to get from one resort to other. It was just one or the other that you had to pick to use. Now you can use both of them, and it’s a luxury most people will not want to miss out on.
Andy Wirth grew up in Germany, and moved to the United States when he graduated from high school. He moved to Colorado where he attended Colorado State University and fell in love with the mountainous views of the state. After graduating from college, he moved to Steamboat, Colorado, where he went to work for a result. He worked his way up the ladder and became quite successful. That’s when he decided he was going to purchase the resort and is now the proud owner and CEO.
Wirth is an outdoor enthusiast himself, and grew up around family members that enjoyed the same things he still does today. He has a newfound outlook on life after a near fatal sky diving experience that landed him in the hospital for months. He started the “Wounded Warrior Support” organization that helps supports Navy Seals once they return home with their family.

A leader is someone that is unselfish, makes other people around him or her better, and is truly committed to it. When it comes to leadership, it is truly a job that requires the attention of someone 365/24/7 if they are going to do it right. John Goullet has long been a leader and it is something he takes a great deal of pride in when it comes to his job as Principal Executive at Diversant. In his mind, it is up to him to get these IT professionals ready to work for Fortune 500 companies. They might have the degree or the skills, but there is a lot more to it than that.
John looks at people and really examines everything there is to examine about them. He looks at their strengths, weaknesses, and everything in between. He has a sense and a feel for individuals. He can oftentimes see things in them that they haven’t even figured out themselves yet.

What the App Does
Some of the functions of the upcoming apps will involve the identification of real estate through a client’s mobile device and interactive chats that Davos agents will use to receive historical real estate reports. The application will make it facile for clients and their agents to keep in touch, thus, simplifying the investment process. According to David Osio, the company developed the application to offer financial guidance to clients when making their U.S real estate investments. The mobile application uses the latest technology to create an innovative tool that clarifies investment options for potential investors.
Clients will be able to use the Davos CAP Calculator “to estimate rent on the property that is most suitable for your projected income.” Another merit that the app comes with is the ability to calculate mortgage estimates by factoring in aspects such as funding period, the associated rate of interest and bank projections. It is essentially a Mortgage Calculator, a tool that has become a must-have when considering putting money in the property market. The Davos CAP Calculator is just one of the many changes that Davos REG is going through in an effort to take the company in a new direction as it seeks to expand internationally.
