Author Becker has a passion for improving the world around him. He has devoted his life to finding things that need improvement and making them better. He has used this passion to establish a long career of success. In a recent IdeaMensch interview, the current managing member of Madison Partners, LLC, an investment firm whose primary focus is on the real estate and early stage biotech sectors, spoke of his life, his philosophy, and his passion for business and investing.
The investment entrepreneur stated that he got the idea for Madison Partners during his time at NaviSite and further developed the foundations of it during his tenure at ZINIO, where he has previously served as Chairman and CEO from 2012-2015. He developed an interest in both the real estate market as well as the biotech sector during this time. The activities that would later lead to the Madison Partners started humbly enough by his expanding his own investments in real estate by increasing his holding in the condo markets of Miami and New York City.
Mr. Arthur Becker says that in order to bring ideas to life one has to be able to stay flexible, both for the long run as well as on the day to day living of one’s life. One has to also be able to balance the passionate drive for development with realistic understanding and critical thinking. You must also have informed and intelligent tenacity, a skill that he says is without a doubt the key to anyone’s success in business. He also states that it is important to be open minded and listen to one’s colleagues and to the trends of the market that you are in. Again, the key here is to be flexible in your life, bother personal and professional.
Being flexible in his personal life is something that he has mastered as well. Arthur remains a devoted father to his two children and a caring friend to his former wife, wedding and fashion designer Vera Wang. He also enjoys a wide variety of personal interests and hobbies, that keep him young and vibrant. This above all else is the foundation essential for any success in life, he believes. You have to stay active and vital if you want to succeed.
