Robert Diegman’s involvement in the technology industry

How Robert Diegnan’s Involvement In Technology Industry Readied Him For Success At ATS

Recently, Robert Diegnan’s brainchild company, ATS Digital Services became the first customer care company to receive the certification by AppSystem. This proves to the world that ATS system doesn’t just make their lives easier. It also affirms Robert’s statements that the app is safe for use. The certification marks the peak of Robert’s involvement in the technology industry. By this certification, Robert’s role in transforming lives through technology seems to have peaked. It has however been a long way coming and it would be interesting to learn how his previous engagements prepared the Advanced Tech Support (ATS) CEO and Co-founder to this success.

Robert’s interest in technology and entrepreneurship spiked during his college days and he set up his mind on working in this sector. The fact that he was pursuing an unrelated course, Degree in Business Administration at the time didn’t deter him from facing the industry head-on after his graduation from Purdue University in 1995. He had already witnessed the effectiveness of technology in making certain aspects of life easier and was dedicated to using this technology to further making more aspects of life even easier.

Three years into his career, Robert launched his first entrepreneurial project, Fanlink. While this startup was more of a trial business project, it introduced Robert to a new area of life that he has pursued ever since, Customer care. Fanlink turned Robert Diegnan’s attention to customer care and his interest in making providing a digital solution to common challenges experienced by the customer care departments. To a large extent, Fanlink laid the groundwork for Robert’s career in technology.

Gathering more experience in the field

In an attempt to gather more experience in technology while consolidating his knowledge of the subject, Robert Diegman settled for a position as the executive vice president of iS3 Inc. The company specialized in software development and was primarily inclined to solving the problem with digital security, computer support, and personalized but technical online support. The position and the knowledge gained here would, later on, serve as stepping stones to founding ATS digital systems.

Co-founding ATS systems

In 2011, Robert left employment to start ATS digital systems that specialize in customer care services. The business administration graduate would encompass integrate the different skills in security and technical support gained during years of employment to come up with easy to use, effective, and highly secure system.

Tim Duncan, Talos Energy Chief Executive Powers Through Adversity

Tim Duncan, Chief Executive of Talos Energy has been the process of putting together the right plan to assemble the necessary elements to complete the 2.5 billion merger of his privately held company (Stone Energy) both bankrupt and publicly traded. The risk is high, however the offset is that there’s no need for a public offering and it would make Talos Energy a public entity. In addition, while performing the process of putting together the deal Mr. Duncan was right in the middle of Hurricane Harvey, riding in a rescue boat with his family. Tim Duncan decide to not use his current situation as an excuse to stop looking for the necessary means to figure out a way to complete the merger deal. In May, Mr. Duncan the merger and now he presides over an oil company that has $700 million in debt against $2.3 billion in assets primarily in the Gulf of Mexico. However, to get access to the potential assets it will cost large amounts of money (millions) paired with the possible spills which will demand substantial fines to rectify.

Talos Energy currently produces 48K barrels per day and they plan to produce much more. It is Talos Energy hope to increase production by employing hydraulic fracturing (a new technology) to extract oil from old reservoirs. The main concern that Talos Energy has, is that the ways they can obtain oil has many road blocks. If Talos Energy goes the fracturing method, then they have to deal with the unpredictable, political environment and the US population. On the other hand, if Talos Energy tries to extract the oil from the Gulf Of Mexico, then there’s the potential for the high cost and possible oil spills. Regardless of the method used to obtain the oil, Tim Duncan is very eager to make things work. Even during the hurricane, Mr. Duncan held critical negotiations with Mackay Shields and Franklin Templeton Investments about restructuring in excess of $800 million of combined debt. In addition, Apollo Management and money managers Riverstone, Talos’ equity principal owners were part of the negotiations.

Tim Duncan has a keen ability to capitalize on problematic situations and as a result of Hurricane Harvey, his resilient abilities continue to grow stronger. Mr. Duncan is now about to capitalize on a jewel asset (Pompano Platform) for implementation for several new suitable prospects for new drilling and ease bondholders with his hedging abilities in the form of selling over 80% of 2018 output (future trades at $55 per barrel).


Peer-to-peer lending groups that loan out money to individuals have been around for years. Many of these companies loan smaller amounts between $10,000 to $50,000. Some of these lending platforms have been declining in the past few years. One such company that stands out of the crowd aside from these platform lenders is GreenSky Credit. Below, we will discuss what GreenSky Credit is and we will also shine the light on their innovative CEO, David Zalik.

GreenSky LLC, a financial technology company founded in 2006 and based in the Atlanta area, is a $3.6 billion dollar company. GreenSky Credit does not lend funds directly acquired from it’s own capital like traditional lending platforms or financial institutions. Instead, they are financed by larger retailers such as home improvement, medical or furniture stores. Essentially, they offer their clients favorable rates and terms for niche loans and act as the intermediary between the retailers and the borrowers. They are not considered a lender by nature but a financial technology company. The success of the company can mostly be attributed to their current CEO and co-founder, David Zalik.

David Zalik was born in Israel and moved to the U.S. when he was 4. His family moved to Alabama where his dad was a math teacher at Auburn University. David became somewhat of a math whiz and was taking college courses while in middle school. His high school years were spent at Auburn University. He eventually dropped out and started his own computer parts company called MicroTech and later sold the company at the age of 22 for millions. Eventually he moved to Atlanta, dabbled in successful real estate and technology ventures, and eventually started GreenSky. It is there that he was able to combine all of his past experiences to make GreenSky the success that it is today.

Today, GreenSky continues to grow and be a model for other companies. Recently, they announced a potential expansion of their business with a projected $100 million IPO. The time has come to finally embrace the model laid out by David Zalik and his GreenSky Credit team.

The Life of Tony Petrello as a Philanthropist

Tony Petrello, a name vastly known in the business industry, is more than just a man whose life is based on personal success. He studied at Yale University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and later a Masters in the same course as well. To add onto his already impeccable education status, he graduated from Harvard Law School with a Juris doctor. This was the beginning of a lifelong successful career path that even saw him mentioned in the top-paid CEO’S list in the United States of America.

In 1991, Tony became the deputy chairman, president and chief operating officer of Nabors Industries. Nabor Industries is an oil, natural gas and geothermal drilling company, which is the largest land driller in the world. Tony Petrello did shine a light to this company with his brilliant compensation ideas that saw the company pay him millions of dollars. He also helped the company with improving its finances, and he was hired when the company was undergoing recession and financial hurdles.

The late 90’s was a life-changing period for Petrello, as one of a parent’s greatest fears struck him. His wife gave birth to their daughter Carena. Born prematurely, Carena weighed only 20 ounces at 24 weeks. She was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). This was a setback to Carena’s development as it resulted to her having cerebral palsy –the lack of oxygen in the brain. Her condition became a driving force to her father’s philanthropic journey.

Both Tony and his wife Cynthia were determined to get answers as well as help other children who suffered the same neurological disorder as their daughter by giving back to the society. Tony Petrello donated $7 million to the Texas Children’s Hospital. This was to help improve the facility where his daughter was on a day-to-day basis. This raised the hospital’s level of treatment to top notch. Later on, Tony met Dan Duncan, Chairman and Director of Enterprise Products.

Dan Duncan and his wife Jan donated $50 million that foresaw the building of the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute. This center sits on 300,000 square feet within the Texas Children’s Hospital. This was a huge stepping-stone towards the improvement of the hospital from employment of world leading doctors and surgeons to state of the art equipment, which is now seeing many children receive better healthcare and treatment. This has been a big breakthrough for children seeking medical services.
