TechStyle Group And How It Operates

In March of 2010 Adam Goldberg and Don Ressler co-founded the fashion oriented TechStyle Group in El Segundo, California. TechStyle Group is the parent company of a collection of online fashion retailers. To date they operate JustFab, Fabletics, FabKids, Shoedazzle, and P.S. by JustFab. In 2011 they brought in Kimora Lee Simmons as President and Creative Director of the company.

TechStyle has brought in funding from 6 rounds so far. The company is one of the very few successful startups that is called a unicorn due to it bringing in more than $1 billion in venture funding. Some of the large investor that have funded TechStyle includes Passport Special Opportunity Fund, Matrix Partner, Shining Capital, and Trinity Capital Investment. Adam Goldberg commented that he believes the company has an opportunity to build TechStyle into a $3 to $5 billion dollar company. The company generated $400 million in revenue in 2014 and increased that to $500 million in 2015. In addition, the company has been profitable in every month which generally doesn’t happen at a start-up. Goldberg also indicated that they are eyeing an IPO in the not too distant future.

The online websites run on a subscription basis. Membership costs $39.95 and while joining the customer fills out an online survey in order to determine what fashions they prefer. At the beginning of every month the customers personal stylist selects an outfit based on those preferences. The customer can at that point either accept the chosen outfit, pick out their own, or opt out of the month for no charge.

JustFab and Fabletics are also operated as all-inclusive brands. Not long ago they launched an “All Size” collection in order to fit every body type. In a statement, Don Ressler said that they want every woman to feel confident in her clothing, and that was where the idea for the “All Size” collection came from. He also said that #FABforAll would offer trendy clothes and styles to more women in a broad range of sizes.

Shedding Light on the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority

The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority has created a reputation for itself, especially for building several toll roads such as the U.S. 290 East and 183-A. Other than the significant infrastructural improvements, many Central Texans still do not know the roles of the Mobility Authority. Here are some in-depth details about the independent government agency.

 

Provides Free Travel Apps and Roadside Assistance

 

In this case, CTRMA operates and manages the Highway Emergency Response Operator, HERO. It does this purposely for those motorists who are stranded along Interstate 35 and U.S. 183. This plays a vital role in keeping the traffic flowing. Furthermore, the authority also runs various apps such as Metropia, which help to get rid of traffic congestion.

 

MoPac Improvement Project

 

The Central Texas Mobility Authority is also responsible for the execution of the MoPac Improvement Project. The project is aimed at adding a toll lane that will run from West Cesar Chavez Street to Parmer LANE. The lane will be constructed on each side of the highway.

 

Pays its Director a Good Salary

 

Mike Heiligenstein earns a relatively good salary compared to what the chief of the Texas Department of Transportation receives. The 2016 approved salary for the executive director was $366,112, which included a basic salary of $274,912, annual life insurance premiums of $3000, deferred compensation of $45000 and a monthly car allowance of $350.

 

Mike Heiligenstein

 

Mike Heiligenstein is a prominent figure when it comes to infrastructure development in Central Texas. Primarily, this is because he currently serves as the head of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. Mike assumed his current position after the Mobility Authority became operational in 2003. Aside from his current duties, he is one individual who has served the residents of Central Texas in many other capacities. In fact, Mike previously served Williamson County as its elected official for about 23 years. During his time in office, he led various infrastructure expansion efforts for wastewater, water and transportation.

 

The Central Texas Mobility Authority operates like an independent agency, which was established in 2002 in a bid to boost the transportation system in Travis and Williamson counties. The body is steered by a mission to develop innovative, multi-modal transportation solutions, which minimize congestion and create transportation options that boost economic vitality and quality of life. With a seven-member board of directors, the Central Texas Mobility Authority utilizes a small team of professional staff to execute its operations.
