Very few of us have had the ability to harness the power of both information technology which improves the way we communicate and biotechnology which enhances our health.
Arthur Becker, a former home-builder and operator of a macadamia orchard in Hawaii, morphed into a real estate wizard and a Biotech Mogul. According to Bloomberg.com, his journey to multi-million dollar fame could not have been planned. Becker made the right decisions at the right time because he knows how to solve problems.
Becker’s academic training was in Business Administration, graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration at Bennington College in 1972 and he attended Tuck School of Business between 1973 and 1974 which is based in Dartmouth. His business organization skills have served him well.
In 2002, Arthur Becker was appointed as the CEO of NaviSite, LLC. NaviSite provides hosting services for organizations looking to outsource their IT services, which helps lower their operational costs, and offers state-of-the-art data centers. Becker also served as a board member of NaviSite and worked at NaviSite for eight years.
According to Page Six, Becker’s wealth derived from the time he spent at NaviSite. It was at this point in Becker’s life that he gradually moved into the culture of tech companies and he also took advantage of investment opportunities.
In June of 2012, Becker was appointed the Chairman and CEO of Zinio LLC. Zinio is a digital publishing company. It delivers digitalized content which converts content to offer digital editions to magazine publishers for their readers on their smartphones, tablets, and desktops. In the same period, Becker served as the managing director of the Madison Technology group, served as a managing director of the Atlantis Investors company, and served as the chairman and CEO of the Zinio Company.
Becker left Zinio in 2015 and has continued his career in real estate investment. Through Arthur Becker’s Atlantic Investors LLC, he has invested $500 million into New York real estate. Becker is moving out of the shadows and is now developing his properties with his name on them.
Is Becker finally going to enjoy his life and settle down? No, I do not think so.
