Marcus Hiles – Chairman of Western Rim Focuses on Eco-Friendly Real Estate Projects

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Based in Dallas, the renowned real estate tycoon Marcus Hiles is a devoted philanthropist with a vision for sustainable developments. “When I was in my 20s, I envisioned creating communities that were both beautiful and environmentally safe,” he recalls. “I’m proud that I’ve been able to bring my concept to fruition in cities around Texas.”

Marcus Hiles’ upscale rental townhomes and apartments include energy-efficient features, such as the highly reflective radiant barrier roof panels installed in attics which serve to reflect the heat. “These panels reduce up to 97 percent of heat transfer, making attics about 30 degrees cooler,” Hiles states. Dual pane windows include a layer of argon gas and have a solar heat gain coefficient of at least 0.22, which can reduce heat loss by as much as 75 percent. Hiles’ developments across Texas also incorporate ENERGY STAR appliances, which reduce the carbon footprint in addition to cutting utility bills. And, while building codes require new buildings to use air conditioners with a seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER) of 13 or 14, Hiles installs units with SEER values of 16 or more. As a result, residents are able to save almost half a million dollars and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 32,000 tons each year. Marcus Hiles’ developments also create public and private parklands and preserves.

Marcus Hiles is a renowned real estate investor and developer whose companies manage over 15,000 upscale residential rental townhomes and apartments in Texas. A graduate of Pepperdine and Rice Universities, Hiles is deeply committed to education and has donated over $2.5 million to public and private K-12 initiatives, after school programs, as well as university career services and job placement programs.

La Banque mondiale alloue 150 millions de dollars au Maroc pour améliorer les programmes sociaux et soutenir les petites entreprises

Washington, 10 mars 2017 – Le Conseil des administrateurs de la Banque mondiale a approuvé aujourd’hui des financements d’un montant total de 150 millions de dollars destinés à appuyer les objectifs poursuivis par les autorités marocaines dans le domaine de la modernisation du système d’identification nationale et en matière d’aide aux start-up innovantes et de promotion de la création d’emplois. Les deux opérations, qui visent à renforcer l’inclusion sociale et économique, permettront, d’une part, d’améliorer le ciblage des programmes sociaux grâce à un meilleur système d’identification personnelle et, d’autre part, de lever les barrières qui empêchent les start-up et les petites entreprises d’accéder à des financements.

Près de 5,3 millions de Marocains, dont deux tiers de ruraux, risquent de replonger dans la pauvreté du fait de la précarité de leur situation économique et sociale. Avec une enveloppe de 100 millions de dollars, le Projet de développement des systèmes d’identification et de ciblage pour la protection sociale a pour objectif de venir en aide aux plus vulnérables. Plus précisément, il financera la mise en place de deux registres : un registre national d’état civil qui confèrera à chaque individu un numéro d’identification unique grâce auquel les procédures de vérification de l’identité seront facilitées, et un registre social qui rassemblera des informations sur la situation socio-économique des individus et des ménages afin de repérer ceux qui sont les plus défavorisés et qui remplissent les conditions pour recevoir des prestations sociales. Ce dernier aura pour effet de valoriser les dépenses sociales en réduisant les marges d’erreur et de favoriser une coordination accrue entre les différents programmes sociaux et ministères concernés. Les deux dispositifs seront gérés par une agence nationale des registres qui sera chargée d’administrer et de garantir une utilisation optimale de leurs informations.

Selon la Banque mondiale, le projet permettra de doubler l’impact des programmes de réduction de la pauvreté tels que le RAMED et le Tayssir, et de diriger les ressources de ces programmes vers les ménages et les individus les plus vulnérables uniquement, ce qui se traduira par des économies estimées à plus de 30 millions de dollars par an. Le projet sera mis en œuvre par le ministère de l’Intérieur sur une période de cinq ans et par le biais d’un financement axé sur les résultats, c’est-à-dire que les décaissements seront subordonnés à la réalisation des objectifs convenus. En plus de son aide financière, la Banque mondiale apportera une assistance technique pour l’élaboration des cadres institutionnel, juridique et opérationnel qui garantiront la bonne utilisation et la pérennisation des nouveaux systèmes.

« Grâce au programme, environ 9,3 millions de Marocains issus des couches les plus défavorisées accèderont plus facilement aux programmes de protection sociale. En se dotant d’un système d’identification mieux conçu et administré plus efficacement, le Maroc sera en mesure de mettre en œuvre des programmes sociaux mieux ciblés, avec des effets tangibles sur la population », indique Diego Angel Urdinola, économiste senior à la Banque mondiale et chef d’équipe du nouveau projet

L’autre projet approuvé aujourd’hui consiste en une opération de 50 millions de dollars destinée à améliorer les possibilités de financement pour les start-up et PME innovantes. Il vise à pallier les insuffisances du marché en ce qui concerne l’offre de financements par capitaux propres pour les PME jeunes et innovantes. Des études montrent en effet que ce sont les start-up qui, dans la région du Moyen-Orient et de l’Afrique du Nord, contribuent le plus à la création nette d’emplois.

Bien que le Maroc soit le pays de la région qui affiche les meilleurs résultats en ce qui concerne l’accès des PME aux financements, il ne parvient pas à soutenir suffisamment les entreprises innovantes et présentant un fort potentiel de croissance aux premiers stades de leur développement. « Les petites et jeunes entreprises ont du mal à trouver des financements, principalement parce que les banques ne peuvent pas financer des start-up (sans des garanties solides) qui, par définition, n’ont pas encore de rentrées de fonds durables et sont associées à un risque élevé », explique Randa Akeel, spécialiste senior du secteur financier et chef d’équipe du projet.

Le projet soutiendra un programme de financement qui investira, aux côtés d’investisseurs privés, dans des start-up et PME innovantes et en direction d’une sélection d’investissements prometteurs. En fournissant des ressources aux prestataires de services de l’écosystème entrepreneurial pour le développement de programmes de mentorat et de préparation à l’investissement, il remédiera aussi aux lacunes qui existent dans le soutien et l’offre de savoir-faire en matière d’investissement dont la plupart des entrepreneurs ont besoin pour lancer des start-up viables. Le projet contribuera globalement à l’expansion d’un secteur privé innovant au Maroc en créant un marché du capital-risque.

« Ces deux opérations viennent soutenir les efforts menés par les autorités pour réduire l’exclusion sociale et promouvoir la croissance du secteur privé, déclare Marie Françoise Marie-Nelly, directrice des opérations de la Banque mondiale pour le Maghreb. Mieux cibler les programmes sociaux, renforcer les services sociaux et faciliter l’accès des entrepreneurs aux opportunités : c’est la voie qui mènera à une croissance inclusive, au profit de tous les Marocains. » 

Alabama Gulf Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau Returns as Host of Food Sport’s Biggest Event

/EINPresswire.com/ — ORANGE BEACH, AL–(Marketwired – March 10, 2017) – Alabama Gulf Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau, known across the country as Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism (www.orangebeach.com), has signed as the 2017 title sponsor of the World Food Championships (www.WorldFoodChampionships.com), making Orange Beach, Ala. once again the Official Host Site of this year’s ultimate food fight.

The arrangement ensures the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach area capitalizes on the energy, excitement and economic impact of an anticipated 1,500 chefs, home cooks and competition teams from around the world as they compete for food fame and fortune.

The event, which last year attracted competitors from 48 states and 14 countries, will return Nov. 8-14 to The Wharf (www.alwharf.com), a resort destination with a full-service marina, retail, dining and entertainment options anchored by a multi-use event center and a 10,000-seat amphitheater.

„Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism and our Sports Commission are excited to step into the arena of Food Sport with the World Food Championships coming to our beach destination,” says Vice President of Sales Beth Gendler. „Sports has truly diversified our destination, and this event helps us diversify even further.

„One of the focuses of the sports commission is to build shoulder season business, and the World Food Championships will be a very impactful event in both room nights and number of people visiting our community during the fall shoulder season,” Gendler said. „It is our pleasure to welcome these national and international food competitors to the Alabama Gulf Coast this November.”

Last year, the World Food Championships brought an estimated $3.3 million impact to the Alabama Gulf coast region, while also drawing more than 20,000 attendees to The Wharf.

„We were thrilled with our first event in Orange Beach,” commented WFC President Mike McCloud. „The community truly came out to support us in many ways, and our food competitors were astounded with the facilities, location and attractions in the area.”

The partnership also connects Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism with World Food Championships’ universe of marketing assets, including national media exposure which eclipsed 690 million impressions last year.

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism welcomes more than 5.7 million individuals to the Alabama Gulf Coast each year for family reunions, vacations, meetings and sporting events. Marked by its sugar-white sand beaches, deep-sea fishing and countless family attractions, the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores area is one of the world’s leading beach destinations, annually attracting more than 5 million visitors. Centrally located along the Gulf Coast, and a short drive from airports in Pensacola, Fla. and Mobile, Ala., Orange Beach’s lodging properties are ideal for beach-side access or inland retreats that are both convenient and affordable. A spectrum of local dining, upscale shopping, fishing, golf, nature and adventure-based excursions also contribute to a spectacular vacation, holiday or leisure experience.

The World Food Championships has experienced rapid growth since its creation in 2012 as the richest and largest Food Sport competition in the world. From a 30% annualized growth in competitors, to its third TV series scheduled to air this summer, the WFC has evolved into a year-long quest for thousands of competitors and foodies, as well as a marketing platform for innovative companies.

The bulk of these Orange Beach-based food fights will occur in Kitchen Arena, the largest outdoor kitchen in the world, measuring a full city block at 7,800-square feet. The competition space features $250,000 worth of stoves, cooktops, countertops and cookware — enough for 50 chefs to compete simultaneously. An additional $100,000 worth of professional grills from Bull Outdoor Products affords open-flame grilling in the burger and steak categories.

ASAE Great Ideas Conference Attendees Encouraged to Take Risks, Be Flexible, Lead With Trust

WASHINGTON, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — For ASAE’s  2017 Great Ideas Conference, March 5–7, there were 601 association professionals and industry partners that took part in more than 40 education sessions, 150 Brain Dates and three Executive Leadership Workshops. The event was held at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in Orlando, Florida.

„We used a variety of formats to help participants learn and engage inside and outside the classroom,” said ASAE President & CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE. „Opportunities ranged from peer learning to in-depth explorations to hands-on training on innovation from ideation to execution. Attendees appreciated the opportunity to personalize their unique experience. The keynotes and eight speakers from outside our industry shared revolutionary ideas and inspiration they can take back to their organizations.”

Leading off the Great Ideas Conference was opening keynote Srini Rao, Chief Creative Instigator, Unmistakable Media and author of Unmistakable. He encouraged organizations to ignore best practices and create unique products and services so distinctive that nobody else could have done it, which would make one’s competition become irrelevant. Rao advised participants to let go of masks and labels, which hinder creative thinking.

The closing keynote was Chief Growth Officer at McChrystal Group, bestselling author, and former US Navy SEAL officer, Chris Fussell. He encouraged organizations to build on and embrace the fundamental attributes of elite, high performing teams including: trust, common purpose, shared consciousness, and empowered execution.

ASAE held three Executive Leadership Workshops this year.

ASAE’s next Great Ideas Conference will be March 11–13, 2018, at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
