Former Atlanta Hawks Owner Takes Insurance Company to Court over Ferry Settlement

Bruce Levenson may no longer be in control of the team, but his company, Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC, is headed back to court to hash out what may have been a breach in insurance coverage during the Ferry settlement. See, http://www.forbes.com/sites/mikeozanian/2015/04/23/bankers-for-levenson-oversold-atlanta-hawks-by-27/.

Danny Ferry, the team’s former General Manager, parted ways with Levenson’s company, leading to a settlement between the two parties. It took place in June of 2015, cutting Ferry’s six-year contract in half for an undisclosed sum of money. That settlement, the company claims, ought to have been covered by their insurance company, as workplace termination, separation and all related torts were part of their policy. As they did not pay out Ferry’s settlement, Levenson’s company has filed a lawsuit with the Supreme Court of Fulton County, seeking damages for insurance bad faith and breach of contract.

No word as to the total amount Levenson is seeking, but the lawyers representing them feel their case is pretty solid. Citing a clear breach in policy, Levenson’s representation argues that their insurance provider was liable in the case of Ferry’s separation from the Atlanta Hawks. No word yet as to whether the former General Manager may find himself back in court as this case moves forward.

About Bruce Levenson:

Having started his career in publishing, first as a writer for the Washington Star and later with Oliver Publishing, Bruce Levenson eventually started a career in business. Partnering with Ed Peskowitz, Levenson founded the United Communications Group which he’s led as Partner for over 20 years.

According to Time.com, Levenson has continued to keep his ventures diversified, like owning the Atlanta Hawks and rising to the position of Director of Tech Target. Outside of business, Levenson has dedicated a significant portion of his life to work in philanthropy with groups like the I Have a Dream Foundation where he served as President.

Doe Deere – Young, Bright, and Bold

“Makeup for Unicorns,” this is the tag line of Lime Crime Cosmetics. Indeed, the cosmetics are intense and bold, being more focused on creating an image or fantasy than on what looks natural. The CEO and founder of Lime Crime, Doe Deere, was born in Russia and raised in New York City. She launched Lime Crime in 2008, a company growing out of her love for fashion and a desire to create a unique look. Doe started small and achieved success through her own initiative. She is an avid supporter of fellow women entrepreneurs and gives talks regularly about finding your own voice and following your ambition. She can often be found speaking at events such as PHAMExpo and Vegas Nay’s Stardust Tour.


Doe is excited by the world of e-commerce and believes that there are many advantages to online businesses, such as being able to present an unlimited assortment of products and being able to market them in innovative ways. Thus, Lime Crime was one of the first cosmetic companies to focus heavily on e-commerce. One of the things which has made this a successful format for Lime Crime is the company’s pioneering of the “on-lip” lipstick swatch. This method allows Lime Crime to show the colors, not just as crushed or swiped on paper, but on actual lips. Other makeup companies soon followed, and today it is an industry standard. Doe’s company continues to strive for innovation in e-commerce, with the goal of creating the best interactive shopping experience for customers around the world.


When asked what is a strategy that has helped her grow her business, Doe explains that treating her employees, vendors and partners with love and respect has had the greatest impact.

She also regularly donates to an animal rescue organization known as Bide-A-Wee, a no-kill shelter in New York. In addition, she has three cats, two of which are rescues.


Doe has a passion about her business that is refreshing, new and bold. It is best summed up by her in her mission statement. “Always rebelling, never boring, Lime Crime’s here to shake things up. If we aren’t obsessed with it, we just won’t make it!”

The Business Career Of One Very Successful Russian Entrepreneur

From Government Doctor To Businessman

Alexei Beltyukov has an interesting background. You would never have guessed that this medical student and later internal medicine government doctor would end up being a highly successful and influential business leader in Russia. Yet, this is exactly the story of Mr. Beltyukov.

As you may have guessed, doctor’s on the government’s payroll are not paid very well in Russia or in the former USSR. Beltyukov had a family to provide for and he wanted more and better for himself. While working as a doctor, Mr. Beltyukov stumbled upon an advertisement for a business program that was accepting new students. It was an overseas college. The flyer said scholarships would be offered to those who demonstrated need, talent and drive.

Alexei Beltyukov took a chance and applied to INSEAD college, which is a French college located just outside of Paris. He impressed the admissions staff so much, and they were so humbled by his character that they gave him a full scholarship. Alexei went on to study business administration. He received a bachelor’s and later a master in business administration from INSEAD College of France.

Alexei described what he learned about business, economics, finance, trade and commerce as being life changing. He had never been exposed to such things in Russia. Beltyukov admits that he was starting from zero when it came to business.

Taking the business knowledge from INSEAD back to Russia, Alexei launched a series of businesses. They included companies like A-Ventures Ltd., a company that took poorly run businesses that were struggling to make a profit and turned them around. A-Ventures Ltd, managed to greatly increase the profitability and cut down on the waste of many companies. This venture was later sold by Alexei, who later decided to focus on becoming an angel investor.

According to Angel.co, Right now Alexei Beltyukov’s primary focus is on Endemic Capital. This is an investment company that focuses on pumping money into and getting a return from Russian startups. It may seem like a stretch, but Russia has great entrepreneurial potential that can be tapped into says Alexei.

Shiny hair everyday is possible with WEN BY CHAZ

One of the first things I notice about other people is their hair. As someone who bleaches/dyes her hair, I’m envious of those with healthy and shiny strands. I’ve used coconut oil, deep conditioners, leave-in products in an attempt to get my hair back to that virgin hair health. After reading an article on Bustle, I found myself eager to try a new product – Wen Cleansing Conditioner By Chaz.

WEN Cleansing Conditioner is a 5 in 1 formula. Say good-bye to your other products; including your detangler, deep conditioner, and even your leave-in conditioner! With ingredients like Chamomile Extract and Panthenol, your hair is left feeling and appearing stronger, healthier, and shinier.

Wen By Chaz is a revolutionary hair product line created by Hollywood hair stylist Chaz Dean (http://chazdean.com/). He began developing his ideas while tending to his high scale clients and fashion shows. He continues to develop new products in hopes to help people achieve their dream hair.

After reading Amazon consumer reviews and the detailed instructions, I’ve decided this product to be one to try if you’re looking for healthy and shiny hair. For best results, Wen suggests you cleanse, rinse and repeat, using half the recommended pumps for the first cleanse, and the remaining half for the second cleanse. Doing it that way, will help prevent it from falling flat.

The article first featured on Bustle, summarizes a week long trial on the Wen Cleansing Conditioner. You can read about her firsthand experience here http://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened. Again, I would suggest using the usage tip above to avoid your hair from falling flat, or feeling greasy too quickly like hers. One minor tweak so you can maintain the dream hair results all day.
