The innovative nature of the work of Watford owner, Gino Pozzo has seen the Italian-born club owner take on a much more dominant role than that of most soccer chairman. Pozzo is far more hands-on than the majority of owners who look to use soccer clubs as a plaything they can dip in and out of whenever they feel like it. In the long-term, Gino Pozzo believes he has the skills to keep Watford climbing up the Premier League with an array of helpers from Chief Executive Scott Duxbury to Chief Scout, Andrea Carnevale.
Gino Pozzo has looked back over the careers of the coaches who have passed through the doors of his former clubs, Udinese and F.C. Grenada where he was an important figure before moving to Watford. The Premier League is notorious for sacking coaches after a short period of time, which Duxbury and Pozzo saw as a failure when a coach is put in charge of buying players for the future. Instead of relying on a coach to make transfers and source new players, Gino Pozzo made the decision that he was going to use a team of global scouts who have the ability to identify the players of the future.
Instead of relying on the head coach to identify players, Gino Pozzo looks to a team of experienced global scouts who prepare reports on the players initially identified by Andrea Carnavale. The former Italian international striker is known to have identified some of the most exciting talents to come out of Watford in recent years headed by the striker, Richarlison. The future of the club is being guaranteed by the ability of the scouting network to provide Gino Pozzo with reports on possible signings and for the chairman to negotiate deals for the best players identified.
While the Department of Energy is calling it Freedom Gas, shale gas has been changing the energy industry in the United States and one billionaire, Wes Edens, is confident in it as an investment. While his history of co-founding Fortress Investment Group and being the co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks basketball team may not indicate that he’d have much to do with Freedom Gas as an investment, but he is going strong in the industry on many different levels. Wes Edens has been providing super-chilled natural gas exports to regions like West Africa, Central America, and different parts of the Carribean. In addition to the efforts that the investor and entrepreneur is already making, he is also making plans to construct a terminal in Pennsylvania designed for exporting the cargo.

The gas industry in the United States has been experiencing a considerable export boom and Wes Edens and others have found that there is a great deal of money to be made in the current market. As the shale revolution continues to transform the American gas industry, Trump has been encouraging this exportation effort. While the majority of the projects can take several years to complete, Wes Edens has been focusing on smaller facilities that will be able to function and start producing natural gas and oil much faster than some other companies’ projects. There are many countries that rely on imported oil to fuel their power plants and the shale oil exportation boom is providing them with more affordable options.
While about 99% of the energy used in the United States is supplied by oil, this isn’t the case in many developing countries across the globe according to Wes Edens. He began taking an interest in the gas industry after Fortress Investment Group purchased the Florida East Coast Railway and converted to using LNG instead of diesel fuel. Unfortunately, they could not find a suitable supplier to work with so they decided to try to handle the situation themselves in order to power its locomotives. They went on to build their own facility in Miami to produce LNG and it has grown since then.
