Arthur Becker has managed to make a name for himself in the corporate world due to his top-notch leadership or executive skills. For this reason, he has led top companies such as Zinio. This reputation recently scored him an interview with Ideamensch whereby he opened up about his career and experiences.
The idea for starting Madison Partners stemmed from Becker’s high involvement in real estate and technology while he was working for Zinio and NaviSite. After the sale of NaviSite in 2011, Becker got an opportunity to expand his interests and engagements in real estate by investing his resources and time in condominium development in Miami and New York City.
Becker is most effective when he works with those individuals that he respects whether in technology or real estate. He is fascinated with the real estate business due to the different development stages including design, financing, entitlements, construction and marketing. Additionally, Becker believes that having a flexible strategy, staying informed, listening to the market and work colleagues can be a success formula.
According to Becker, talent is a key ingredient for success in business. Hence, you should identify talent then persuade the talented individuals to work towards achieving your vision or that of the enterprise.
