The Most Intriguing People in Business

What distinguishes them from their peers is their pure domination of their respective spaces.

Success is not easily defined by those who continually evolve past the expectations of their posts. These individuals regularly wrestle with the status quo and manage challenges through a uniquely creative prism. Not only do they do great work but their ability enhances, encourages, transforms, and reinvigorates the playing field. In music, sports, publishing, politics, and finance, these eight inspire confidence and good faith, win races and elections, as well as protect and entertain. But what distinguishes them from their peers is their pure domination of their respective spaces.

The Money Maker
Larry Felix, Director of U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing

As stock market prices remain unstable and the economy sits precariously in the balance, cash is king. And Felix is the man overseeing the design and manufacturing of it in the U.S. He’s charged with overseeing the operations of the Bureau in the production of U.S. currency and other government securities and documents. He’s also responsible for the printing of 38 million notes a day with a face value of approximately $750 million. In the two years since attaining the directorship, the new $10 and $5 bills have been redesigned maintaining the integrity of U.S. paper currency. Under Felix, work continues on the redesign of the $100 bill and the development of special security details to thwart counterfeiters. Felix also manages the government office devoted to refunding damaged money—$38 million was refunded in the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. The Bureau, an agency of the Department of the Treasury with facilities in Washington, D.C. and Fort Worth, Texas, employs 2,000 people. Originally from Port of Spain, Trinidad, Felix was raised in Brooklyn, New York, and came to the Bureau from the United States Savings Bond Division in 1992. He has held a variety of positions in the Bureau since, including manager of marketing, chief of external relations, associate director for technology, and deputy director. During his service as deputy director he increased the frequency at which currency is redesigned and instituted training pro-grams to enable staff to respond more quickly to marketplace threats against the nation’s currency. Today, the Bureau employees managed by Felix include scientists, engineers, and specialty printers.

The Enforcer
Ronald K. Noble, Secretary General of INTERPOL

Noble is the first American to serve as Secretary General for INTERPOL, the world’s largest international police organization serving 187 countries. Since being unanimously reelected to a second five-year term in 2005, Noble directed INTERPOL’s launch of the world’s first global database of stolen and lost travel credentials. The database contains more than 15 million travel documents from more than 120 countries. This past summer, INTERPOL assisted the Chinese government with security preparations for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing by supplying a support team. INTERPOL’s passport and visa application screening process was used to identify stolen, lost, and fraudulent travel documents, as well as suspected terrorists and dangerous criminals during the games.

Between 2000 and 2007, Noble has presided over a 50% budget increase,

    Mr. Vadim Danilov was invited by Mr. Naohiro Baba to strike up an acquaintance with Mr. Harry Fujimaki to work for Toshiba Corporation (?????? Kabushiki-gaisha T?shiba) as a general logistics manager in the Russian Federation. The event occurred in 2004. In the course of two years Mr. Danilov had been “employed” in other spheres such as, a certification specialist, customs broker, trader, promoter, etc. Mr. Danilov worked effectively and honestly thinking that he was a team player contributing to Toshiba’s benefits.

    To his disappointment, Mr. Koichiro Natsume, an executive manager of Toshiba Corporation in the CIS, declared him a Toshiba Official Trader at the Conference at the Imperial Park Hotel, Moscow, 2006. In addition, Mr. Koichiro Natsume declared that Mr. Danilov Vadim was officially registered by Toshiba Corporation as Toshiba’s Official Trader named “the Ninth Wave” (‘Deviatiy Val’). To conclude the announced procedures, Mr. Natsume Koichiro issued to “Deviatiy Val” a Toshiba invoice PI 20060800059 dated August 24, 2006. The invoice was paid to a TCMS official account at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, Singapore Branch.

    Moreover, there were other financial transactions during 2006-2007-2008 years, executed by Mr. Vadim Danilov between clients and Toshiba Consumer Marketing Singapore, SMBC Singapore branch account.

    After all the payments were completed, Mr. Koichiro Natsume vanished somewhere in Japan. Toshiba Corporation managers in Russia, Japan and Singapore refused to explain to Mr. Vadim Danilov how those payments had been used.
    Toshiba Corporation & TCMS, insist that Mr. Vadim Danilov has no evidences that Toshiba Invoice PI 20060800059 had been paid, as well as all the other payments.
    Moreover: Toshiba Corporation declares now that Mr. Vadim Danilov had never had any relations with Toshiba Group Companies.

    Nowadays, the Toshiba staff is running away from Mr. Danilov Vadim and his lawyers. The Metropolitan Police Department refused to investigate the accident and explained to Mr. Vadim Danilov that he has no right to bring in an action against a Japanese citizen; nevertheless, Mr. Koichiro Natsume is probably hiding in Japan.

    Summary of the case:

    Toshiba Corporation managers are too afraid of Mr. Vadim Danilov’s knowledge of Toshiba management precisely elaborated scheme for “personal financial transactions” via third parties as a ‘private financial network’ Russia-Estonia-Finland-Singapore.

      “Debts and lies are generally mixed together”

      Luxury World

      “For the greater part of the trade we did much more than practice a large-scale deception through double-traders; by means of the double-trader system we actively ran and control the Russian business markets system…”
      Norio Sasaki, [ The Double-Trader System in the Business; Yal University Press; 2009, New Haven and London]

      Once upon a time, in 2008 a Holy Man entered JETRO – Japan External Trading Organization.
      He had a lot of great plans and was sure that the nice future was waiting for him among Japanese Trading Houses and Shadowed Elite Businessmen Society.

      But there was a question – How to become as popular as ‘to be or not to be’ expression?
      It was easy only from the first glance.
      In real life no one was interested in one more manufacturer of luxury bags and precious testicles.
      At the same time Holy Man needed glory and fate not less then Salvador Dali.

      So, he decided to do the same: popularity becomes through some scandal. It is always better if intentional scandal is growing bigger and running huger worldwide…

      The Holy Man founded another Man with help of JETRO. While searching the internet he noticed Tiny Man- some simple human being who was fighting with Toshiba Corporation and Mitsubishi Group. That was the man he ever wanted.

      The internet and Newspapers were full of different stories about Tiny Man. He was struggling in Tokyo and Singapore, Washington and Brussels, Moscow and Tashkent, Sankt-Petersburg and Odessa, in Google and Yahoo, through newspapers, Singapore Police and other respectable resources.
      “That man could be compared only with Brother Che”, – decided Holy Man and issued to Tiny Struggler small message. Holy Man was not sure that Tiny Struggler would notice him, so he decided to send his message not as short SMS through some mobile luxury phone, but as a invitation through JETRO official.

      The Holy Man needed sales. As soon as it could be possible. So, he requested Mr. Tiny Struggler to check the local Russian market.

      He promised a lot, which was not necessary to be really executed in the future. The main target was to get contact: that is how the Tiny Struggler was captured. The Holy Man found interesting detail – Tiny Struggler was fond of Salvador Dali Arts in his poor childhood.
      The best representation for him was ‘to hint’ on some contact with Salvador Dali.

      Tiny Struggler explained to Holy Man that it could better to begin invasion into Russia after official registration oh Holy Man’s brand, trademark, organization, etc.

      Stupid Tiny Struggler could not understand with his empty attic, that these official aspects of life were not the real target of the Holy Man.
      He just wanted to sell his precious bags, elite socks, velvet handkerchiefs, necklaces (as new and brand).
      Holy Man promised to sign some contract with Tiny Struggler and even sent one sample of the contract to him. No one knows now why that contract sample was for Poland, but anyway – it was better then nothing.

      The way of God Father’s business seemed colored with diamond stars in Russia:
      No need to Trade Mark registration;
      No need to have Certificates of Compliances;
      No need to register company;
      No need to invest anything officially;
      No need to pay taxes;
      No need to have License;
      No need to have Sanitary inspection of products made from unknown skin;
      No need to converse foreign currency into rubles and vice versa;
      And a lot of other “No Needs” which must be executed in ‘normal’ countries with ‘normal business’.

      The best executer of above mentioned ‘moves’ was Tiny Struggler. The fame of Tiny Struggler became even more day after day: he was already fighting with Media Markt Saturn, Auchan and SONY !

      What else was needed? – Nothing!
      Fool rushes in where angels fear to tread.
      Just some promises of future happiness and full pockets of money for the fool of circumstances.

      But even a Fools bolt may sometimes hit the mark – Russian Customs did not allowed Holy Man to import luxury purses into Russian territory… A light purse makes a heavy heart – Holy Man ‘forgot’ that Russian Customs officers are thinking very slowly without heavy purses… So, while they were requesting various documents: certificate of origing, of compliance, of conformity, of sanitary inspection, etc… (waiting for some bribes) – some Italy gangstaz have stolen purses nevertheless they contained no money at all.

      The Holy Man disappeared from the horizons of Tiny Struggler. The reason was cheap: Holy Man could not pay for job, because his real intentions were to find some slaves in Russia who will work for some sly of dry Italian pizza from backyards of famous Italian canteens.

      BUT: the Story just began…
