The sports and entertainment industry is filled with business leaders who have created much more than a sporting empire. One of the latest entrants to this list of sports moguls is Wes Edens, the Fortress Investment founder, and chair who is looking to carve out his own position in the sporting world. The University of Oregon graduate has recently entered international sports as the co-owner of the famous English soccer club, Aston Villa. “The Villains” have been in the doldrums for a number of seasons but hope the arrival of co-owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens will positively impact the club.
Wes Edens has brought success to many different areas of the business sector through his innovative approach to investing and concern for the future of the world. Instead of making a quick buck while leaving behind any thought of the effects on the planet, Edens is constantly looking to develop business opportunities with an eye on protecting the planet. After developing Fortress Investments in 1998, the Edens family became concerned about the effects of climate change on the planet. In 2014, Fortress Energy was created to help develop the opportunities for clean Liquidified Natural Gas in developing nations.
Looking to the future seems to be a consistent theme for Wes Edens as he is looking to assist in the fight against climate change by funding research program at Princeton University. A similar approach of looking at the future has been undertaken during the tenure of Edens as co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks NBA franchise. Some fans feared Edens and his business partners would move the franchise to a more lucrative TV market, but the actions of the owners have proven these fans wrong. One of the first promises made by Wes Edens was to build a new arena for the team within the limits of the City of Milwaukee in a sustainable way. Building in the Entertainment District allowed 27 acres of largely vacant land to be redeveloped as the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Complex.
