Wes Edens is among the world’s leading financial minds and one of the three co-founders of the prestigious investment management organization Fortress Investment Group. He started the firm in 1998 alongside Rob Kauffman and Randal Nardone and continues to be a major player in the firm’s development in the wake of its acquisition by Japan’s SoftBank. Over his highly successful career, Wes Edens has developed an impeccable reputation for being able to cash in on situations that seem like they would be a loss. While many were reeling from the financial crisis that exploded in 2008, Wes Edens found ways to make a good thing out of a bad situation. 2010 saw Wes find success in the subprime lending industry only two years removed from 2008’s financial crash. Since that time he has also become a major player in the realm of professional sports ownership. Wes Edens is currently a co-owner of the Bucks of the NBA and also English soccer club Aston Villa.
In addition to his massive commitment to Fortress Investment Group and his pro sports franchises that he owns, Wes Edens has also been spending a lot of time lately in helping to develop and grow his newest business venture. He has recently gotten into the public transportation business and his new Brightline train service is making a massive difference in the lives of many commuters in South Florida who have long suffered dealing with congested road conditions during their morning and evening commutes.
It has long been a nightmare for commuters to get between the South Florida municipalities of Fort Lauderdale and Miami as a drive that should take under an hour can often extend to multiple ones when conditions are bad. The Brightline train has been making the lives of many of these commuters much easier and it has been such a success that there are now many other U.S. city combos that are trying to get this service brought to them as well. Soon there could be similar services running in places such as St. Louis to Chicago and Charlotte to Atlanta.
