Securus Technologies Is Making Changes With Robert Johnson’s Help

An ex corrections officer is aimed at helping to put a stop to cell phones inside of the cells of many prisons. Robert Johnson has been motivated to putting an end to the cell phones being inside of the prisons. When cell phones are inside of jails, it possess a danger to inmates and to the communities.

 

For Robert Johnson, he had been working in the corrections field for over 15 years, and the primary job that he held was to make sure that inmates did not possess items that were considered to be contraband. While he was good on the job, while in his own home, he was shot.

 

Two weeks prior to being shot, Johnson had helped to stop a package from being delivered. This package was to be delivered to a prison gang and was said to have a value of $50,000. On March 5th, 2010, Johnson had got up at 5:30 am in the morning to go to work and was then shot. He had heard a large boom at the front of the house and his front door had been kicked in and was then hit.

 

Robert Johnson was in the home when the door was kicked down and when he tried to stop the intruder from approaching any further into the home due to his wife being in the home. It was then that he was pushed backwards and was then shot. Robert had been shot six times in the chest and stomach. The gun man shot him from just a few feet away.

 

Robert said that the doctors and hospital preacher had prepared his wife for the worst. They had prepared the wife for the worst case scenario. The doctors had stated that his case was that of a miracle. Johnson had died twice while on the operating table and was determined to make it out of surgery. Every time that he crashed, he came back by making sure that everyone knew that he wanted to live to see justice.

 

The inmate who had expected the package inside of the prison had made contact with a gunman who was paid using a prepaid card through a contraband cell phone. Since this day, Johnson has underwent 23 surgeries and even though he lives with pain daily, he actively works to help put an end to contraband inside of prisons.

 

Since this time, Robert Johnson has signed on with Securus Technologies to be a paid consultant. The company has reached an agreement with the state of Florida to provide paid calls for the inmates in prisons in the state. It has since started using a wireless containment system which stops cell phones from being able to access networks inside of the prisons. The system is then logged onto the phone that connects to the network and the number that connects can be done with however they see fit.

Lazaro de Mello Brandao

The immediate former chairman was perhaps the longest serving employee of Bradesco. He joined the bank in 1943 and has been loyal to his employer for over 74 years. Brandao’s employer, Bradesco, has returned the favor. Brandao holds Bradesco’s No.1 employee badge according to folha.uol.com.br. In addition, the bank rewarded Brandao with numerous promotion opportunities enabling him to rise from the initial position, clerk, the bank offered him in 1943. At one point in his career (1991 to 1999), Brandao was both the chairman and CEO of Bradesco. Brandao was the president of Bradesco for 18 years and chairman for 25 years. Brandao, 91, resigned in the interest of Bradesco’s continuity.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco

Just like Brandao, Bradesco has rewarded Trabuco with excellent promotion opportunities. Trabuco started out his career at Bradesco as a clerk in 1969. At the time, Amado Aguiar, the founder of Bradesco, was the chairman and president of Bradesco. Trabuco never envisioned that a time would come for him to be at the helm of Bradesco. Nevertheless, the young clerk gave his best.

After some years at the bank, Bradesco promoted Trabuco to the position of marketing director. He was in charge of the bank’s marketing department for eight years.

How Susan McGalla Got Ahead In Male Dominated Industries

Studies have shown that businesses which are more diverse are more successful. Whether it is gender diversity or ethnic diversity companies do better vs. their less diverse competitors. The reason for this seems to be that diverse companies are more willing to listen to new ideas and implement them. It also brings in more perspectives. Despite all of the advantages of diversity top executive positions at S&P 500 companies are filled by men while women are only represented by a small fraction.

One woman that has cracked into C-level positions at S&P 500 companies is Susan McGalla. She credits her childhood for this, having grown up with two brothers and a father who coached football. She was held to the same standards as her brothers and not given any slack just because she was a girl. This experience taught her to work for what she wanted which she has used to be highly successful in business.

One company that Susan McGalla was a top executive at was American Eagles Outfitters. She says that when she first started there every single executive was a man. She worked her way up and earned the position of president nonetheless. She was also the chief executive officer of The Wet Seal, Inc. which was also predominantly male-led.

While women leadership initiatives can help, Susan McGalla doesn’t think they’re the answer because they’ve been around for years and yet the situation remains the same. She says one solution that could work executive sponsorship where highly career-minded women have an executive sponsor to help her build opportunities to advance.

Susan McGalla now works for The Pittsburgh Steelers, LLC, a football team she joined in February 2015. She is the vice president of business strategy and creative development. In this role, she is responsible for developing the overall strategy of the company behind the football team and their marketing efforts. Also, she serves the University of Pittsburg where she is on the board of trustees. She also serves the University of Pittsburg Cancer Institute where she provides her business and leadership skills by having a seat on their council.
