Fortress Investment Group has been recognized as both an industry leader and trendsetter in the investment management industry seemingly since its launch in 1998. This was never more evident than in 2007 when the firm became the first private equity firm that is traded on a large scale to be provided with a listing on the New York Stock Exchange.
Fortress operates globally as an investment management firm and is in control of more than $50 billion worth of assets for more than 1700 clients and maintains investments in private equity, hedge funds, and long-term capital vehicles. The company is headquartered in New York City and employs more than 900 people.
Wes Edens is one of the company’s three principals along with Randal Nardone and Pete Briger.
Fortress Investment Group made headlines again in 2017 when it executed a sale to the Japanese based SoftBank Corporation for $3.3 billion. The company continues to enjoy the ability to operate as an independent company from its New York headquarters and Edens, and the other principals are still in place.
The company is expected to maintain its current position as a leader in the alternative investment fields and in a recent in-house memo to employees the company pointed out that at its inception just 20 years ago there were 28 employees and $400 million in assets to be managed. The memo went on to explain that the acquisition of the company by SoftBank is not a cash out for the company but in effect a ‘cash-in’ that has the company poised for further growth.
Fortress Principal Wes Edens, who is also the part owner of the Milwaukee Bucks of the National Basketball Association, also made news recently when he took part in the purchase of Champion’s League soccer team Aston Villa. The purchase of the soccer club by Wes Edens was made along with Nassef Sawiris, an Egyptian billionaire, and the two men now jointly own a controlling stake in the club. This came as a relief to the Aston Villa club that can now concentrate on soccer now that their financial woes have been solved, Wes Edens.

Three years ago Nick Hughes left the United States Navy and had no idea what type of career he would pursue. For him, becoming a civilian was a scary new beginning. However, now he is about to graduate from a two year applied science program that has taught him the ins and outs of air conditioning technology. His future success after graduating from the College of Southern Nevada has been aided by his receipt of the Post 9/11 Veterans Tools Award proudly sponsored by Goettl Air Conditioning owner Ken Goodrich.
The award is very distinct from traditional scholarships because it is designed to help graduates pursue work in their chosen career after graduation. The award gives recipients, and in this case Hughes, the ability to purchase $1,000 worth of tools he will need as he advances his career. I cannot imagine how helpful this is going to be, but I am sure Hughes is overwhelmed as I would be.
This is the second endowment provided by Goodrich who is one busy man. Not only does he run the highly successful Goettle Air Conditioning company, but he also awards students from multiple generation families in air conditioning the ‘Son of a Gun’ scholarship and sponsors the J. Duncan Goodrich Air Conditioning Technology Lab at CSN.
Goodrich stated that he created the award because he has learned over the course of working at his company that military men and women make great employees and he wants to help them get a positive start in the HVAC industry. The award is available to graduating students annually.
Goettle Air Conditioning was started in 1939 and moved to Las Vegas in 1968. In 2013 Ken Goodrich purchased the company when it moved to Arizona and reopened a branch office in Las Vegas where he first remembers loving the product. Today there are field offices in Las Vegas, Tucson, and Phoenix.
Serving these areas and those that surround them, Goettle Air Conditioning offers a complete list of repair, maintenance, and replacement services for HVAC systems with a special concentration on improving energy efficiency and indoor air quality. The company also works with commercial HVAC systems as well.
