Craig Anderson, New CFO of Compass
Craig Anderson the current CFO and COO of Flywheel Sports has just been appointed CFO of Compass. Compass, a real estate company, has booted David Snider and brought in Anderson after rumors of conflicting views between Snider and Gavet, the Chief Operating Officer. Flywheel Sports does not even make a dent in the laundry list of executive titles Anderson has held over the years. Anderson was the Vice President of Blackstone Group before being the President and COO of Opt-Intelligence.
Anderson received his MBA from the University of Pennsylvania and a J.D. from Harvard Law. His previous titles required him to handle mergers, acquisitions, product design and a myriad of other responsibilities. Anderson was most notably responsible for Flywheel’s growth of 40 more locations. Compass is a technology-driven company that hopes to expand with the help of their new CFO.
Schlemiel of the Week:
Our favorite Schlemiel is back, I guess he hasn’t learned much since the last time. In our last article, Trump was still successfully denying any ties to Felix Sater, but the cat is out of the bag. Cringing emails of Sater explicitly saying he will “get Donald elected” are circling like wildfire. It is truly unbelievable that no one is incarcerated yet.
In one email Sater wrote,
Sater’s plan to get Trump elected stems from a real estate deal in Moscow. The plan was crafted back in 2015 when Sater proposed the building of a Moscow Trump Tower. A Trump Tower was intended to be seen as an advantage to Trump’s campaign. By building in Moscow, Sater believed Trump would look like he had negotiating leverage. VTB Bank, a Russian bank, was intended to finance the project. The project, however, did not hold due to lack of government permits and financing.
Michael Cohen, Trump’s attorney is doing everything possible to take the spotlight off of Sater’s antics. Cohen went so far as to say Sater’s language is colorful and reminiscent of a salesman, but not to be taken too seriously. Lets wait and see if Sater makes it onto this blog one last time.
