Wes Edens is a finance major with a degree from Oregan Stage University. After completing his education in 1984, Wes Edens took no time at all to put himself out there and start getting work experience in the financial industry. It took Wes a mere three years before he was already in a management position at Lehman Brothers. Before that, Wes climbed up the ranks through various positions at Smith Barney, California Savings, and Merrill Lynch. In 1998, Wes Edens, Rob Kauffman, and Randal Nardone started up Fortress Investment Group as a private alternative investment firm in New York. After becoming public in 2007, Fortress was already one of the biggest investment companies in the country, worth more than 10 billion dollars throughout all of its assets, roughly 18 percent of which belonged to Edens.
Fortress Investment Group has offices spread out not just in the United States, but internationally as well. Since 2006, Wes has been on the board of directors and still maintains his position, working to improve Fortress Investment year by year. That is not all Wes Edens spends his time on though, as he has various other side projects and business deals that he is working on. One of the more significant purchases that Wes has made was acquiring the Milwaukee Bucks, a professional team in the NBA. As a sports fan, Wes has shown a lot of interest in various different sports leagues and continues to get involved as much as he can while leading Fortress Investment Group.
Wes is also playing a big role in the development of the Brightline Train system that is being constructed in Florida currently. While the train is still going through the development stages to improve, things have been working out well and the traffic it aims to defeat has been lessened to an extreme degree. As Brightline continues to develop, Wes hopes to bring the train system to more states that are suffering from heavy traffic and long commute times.
