David Zalik, Going Through The Story To Get The Glory

David Zalik is the man behind the plan when it comes down to how the business systems across the world borrow money and how individual people attain credit and loans as well for their specific endeavors. The company that he owns is called GreenSky Credit LLC and has raked in about three billion and five hundred million so far which an average cash flow statement of two hundred and fifty million dollars per year.

One might ask how this man came to be the tycoon and mega-investor that he is today, and it is simply because he was patient and he worked hard with a focus to get to where he is today inside of the industrial world of finance. His first business started when he was about thirteen years old with nine years to work at it before that was able to sell it with a total of twenty employees for three million dollars.

It started out when the dot-com bubble hype was booming and people were buying thousands and hundreds of shares due to the evolutionary changes that the technological landscape was going through at the time. David Zalik saw the trend and began putting broken computers back together at the age of thirteen where it initially took him ten hours to finish just one computer. Then as time went on he was able to put together a whole computer in only thirty minutes which was the beginning of his computer repair business. After selling it that was when David Zalik went into the financial industry for his GreenSky Credit business where people’s financial needs were met with excellent customer relations and services.

This was just in time because this was around the time when the dot-com bubble finally popped and investors who held their hard earned money too long in the stock ended up walking away with empty pockets instead. Yes, from an early age David Zalik cultivated and honed his entrepreneurial mindset and skills so that he would be ready for the big time when it came. How he became a student at college when David Zalik was thirteen is not a mystery. He was always a devoted hard worker and that is his bottom line for becoming the CEO at GreenSky Credit.

Jeff Aronin’s Contributions to the Medical Industry and Chicago

Jeff Aronin is the CEO and chairman of Paragon Biosciences. The company is a medical research investment firm that diverts its funds towards the research of rare, debilitating, and chronic diseases. Paragon has built several pharmaceutical companies and have gone on to create over a dozen different FDA approved medications and therapies. Since the company was founded in 2010 it has worked hard to adhere by its motto of “patients come first.”

Jeff Aronin graduated from Northern Illinois University and then went on to receive a master’s from DePaul University. Jeff Aronin was originally a physician but began his entrepreneurial career when he founded his own pharmaceutical company, Ovation Pharmaceuticals in 2000 (https://thenewsversion.com/2018/02/jeff-aronin/). When asked why he decided to stop practicing medicine and create a pharmaceutical company he said it was because he witnessed so many people that he had no way of helping because not enough advancements on those disorders or diseases existed yet. Jeff Aronin wants to use his company to not only improve on current medicines therapies but create new ones as well.

In 2009, Jeff Aronin sold Ovation for nearly one billion dollars. This is when he started Paragon Biosciences. Paragon itself doesn’t create products—instead it focuses on individual disease and creates companies with the sole purpose of researching this specific issue. This is a business model that has proven very successful for Paragon. Paragon is currently able to fund Castle Creek Pharma, Harmony Biosciences, Precision BP, and Decade Pharmaceuticals (Reporterexpert).

When Jeff Aronin is not creating innovative technologies and medicines for patients in need, he is devoting his time to several charitable organizations. Jeff supports Susan G. Komen, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Liver Life Challenge and many more charitable companies.

Aronin is not only donating his time and money to charities in the medical field, he also donates to the Boys and Girls Club of Chicago, Friends of Israel Defense Forces, the Chicago Parks Foundation, and the Jewish United Fund.
