Thor Halvorssen a Man Opposed to all Tyrants

Home | Human Rights Leaders | Thor Halvorssen a Man Opposed to all Tyrants

Thor Halvorssen is the founder of the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) and is an avowed and dedicated human rights activist. He has come out in opposition to the socialist governments in Venezuela and Cuba and as such became an advocate for the right-leaning Weekly Standard and Fox News. But Halvorssen has an individualistic mindset concerning whoever is committing human rights violations. Recently interviewed by a Fox News commentator who wanted to do a hatchet job on Bernie Sanders because of his socialistic leanings, Fox News was shocked when Halvorssen not only was in agreement with Sanders’ socialist value system but was an avid supporter of the candidate having given Sanders the largest donation allowable by law.
The Weekly Standard wanted to know more about this unique advocate for human rights and sent a writer to do an in-depth study.
The writer discovered that Thor Halvorssen began life surrounded by extreme wealth. His home in Venezuela came equipped with a sauna, pool, library, billiard room and a servant’s wing for a staff that included a driver, bodyguard, gardener, butler, cook, and governess. His parents instilled in him a sense of extending family status to the staff. Thor was always to treat them with great respect.
Halvorssen rejects the conservative label applied to him by many and claims to be a classic liberal in the John Stuart Mill mold. He is an equal opportunity activist attacking target on both sides of the political spectrum.
He was sent to an English boarding school where he first encountered and then overcame bullying. He continued his education at the University of Pennsylvania where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa.
After beginning his foundation, Halvorssen appointed Vaclav Havel as the chairman of HRF, who served until his death in 2011 at which time Halvorssen selected the Russian chess grandmaster and political activist strongly opposed to Vladimir Putin, Garry Kasparov as foundation chairman. Kasparov protested the imprisonment of the band, Pussy Riot, and was carried off and assaulted by the Russian police. Pussy Riot was convicted of the crime of singing an anti-Putin song, and the band was sentenced to serve two years behind bars.
Thor Halvorssen is a unique humanitarian who serves to advance the human condition against any repressive political system anywhere in the world.

The Rise of JustFab

Home | CEO Profiles | The Rise of JustFab

JustFab is an online subscription fashion store that contains a range of jewelry, handbags, shoes and denim. JustFab was founded in 2010 by two entrepreneurs, Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler. Adam Goldenberg was an entrepreneur at an early age. At the age of 15 he founded his own company Gamers Alliance which he sold to Intermix Media in 1999. Goldenberg then dropped out of high school and joined Intermix Media as the Vice president of Strategic Planning. Adam Goldenberg became the youngest Chief Operating Officer of the company at the age of 20.

It was while at Intermix Media that Adam Goldenberg met Don Ressler. Don was a specialist in brand building and in 2001 sold his own company FitnessHeaven.com to Intermix Media. The two became friends and teamed up to start their own company Intelligent Beauty when News Corporation acquired Intermix Media in 2005. Mr. Adam Goldenberg served as its Chief Executive officer. He has been the president of Brentwood Cosmetics and Alena LLC since 2004. He was also the head of Performance Marketing Group at Intermix. His experience of more than five years in product development and internet marketing has made him one of the leaders in the field.

Half a decade after its founding, JustFab is the leading e-commerce subscription company and boasts of approximately 35 million members all over the world. The company has spread to various countries such as France, Spain, Germany, UK and Canada. Three years after it was founded JustFab’s total funding was $300 million, making it a ‘unicorn’ the name given to companies which have valuations of over a billion dollars.

The subscription fee is $39.95(VIP membership) monthly and when members register they are required to complete a survey where they state their fashion tastes. At the start of each month the member can choose items based on their tastes, seek new options or skip the month at no cost. Goldenberg is convinced that in the next 20 years half of the world’s population will be shopping online so JustFab is focusing on building a great brand. The success of the company so far lies in the seriousness they give on customer feedback. Employees analyze the feedback and adjust accordingly to make the customers happy.
