Evaluating The Emergence of Seattle Genetics as a Biotechnology Giant

Washington-based biotechnology firm Seattle Genetics, has created a niche for itself as a major player in the biotechnology industry. Since its formation, the firm’s commitment to advancing state-of-the-art cancer therapies, has been steadfast. Seattle Genetics focuses on the developing and commercializing therapies that are antibody-based. This is mainly done through in-depth research, which is conducted by a team of experts led by the firm’s CEO, Dr. Clay Siegall. This high level of commitment has made Seattle Genetics a force to reckon with in the industry.

 

The firm’s breakthrough came after it successfully advanced Adcetris, a cancer therapy that has been commercially availed in more than 60 countries. The firm has banked on the success of this product to come up with many more, all of which have been of great benefit to cancer patients globally. Seattle Genetics boasts a first-class research facility, and a team of proficient scientists, who have been the backbone of its success. It recently started a clinical program, which will test the effectiveness of Adcetris in the treatment of lymphomas.

 

Seattle Genetics has been forming partnerships to enable it market its products to a wider market. It recently partnered with Takeda in a deal that will see it realize the commercial potential that Adcetris has in the United States, Canada and beyond. The company has been driven forward by the desire to alleviate pain and suffering amongst cancer patients. A culture of teamwork, innovation and scientific excellence is encouraged among staff members. It is therefore, not surprising that Seattle Genetics has become a giant in the field of biotechnology.

 

Dr. Siegall in Brief

 

The Maryland and George Washington University alumnus cofounded Seattle Genetics in 1998. Currently, he chairs its board besides being the firm’s president. His experience in the field of biotechnological research has enabled him to offer shrewd leadership to the firm. Dr. Siegall has special interest in the field of Zoology, having pursued the subject up to doctoral level. Prior to co-founding Seattle Genetics, Clay worked at the Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute. Before that, he had made a name for himself by being one of the most competent researchers at the National Institute of Health.

Remaking Your Reputation: How One Company Bounced Back from PR Disaster

Dealing with the public is an integral part of any business. This is especially true in the case of companies trying to make it happen during the prevalent age of the internet. Status Labs, an Austin based online reputation firm, has specialized for so long in helping customers deal with their own crisis that it was a shocking turn around when they were suddenly on the defensive end. Status Labs President, and co-founder, Darius Fisher took some time to really look into how his company managed to overcome an embarrassing public gaffe.

Fisher is the first to point out that a solid reputation starts from the top down with solid leadership.

The first thing that Fisher did was garner a vote to have the offending executive removed from the company. Next up Fisher knew that he needed to assuage the fears of his own employees who were suddenly rightfully afraid for the future of their jobs. So Fisher put together an open letter that he sent to his employees, detailing how the company would respond and grow from the public reputation disaster.

Fisher admits that the environment at Status Labs had suddenly changed thanks to the negative energy that was beginning to pour out: reporters were hounding the office, negative comments were being posted online, and employees were beginning to quit. So Fisher focused first of all on changing inner office culture. He decided to create some ways to garner team chemistry amongst his employees. This meant that the office would cater lunch once a week, allow dogs into the office if they were trained, and even organize team kayaking trips.

Addressing the inner office turmoil was just the start of Fisher’s multi pronged response but it proved to be the most effective aspect. Status Labs has since bounced back to service over 1,000 businesses in countries all over the planet.

Online or In-Person, Fabletics Has an Activewear Solution

Fabletics, the subscription-based online retailer, is expanding its horizons outside of the digital world and has begun opening good old-fashioned brick and mortar stores which sell their line of fashionable, affordable athletics wear. This combination of online and offline business offers customers a unique opportunity for revitalizing their look while they exercise or just live their lives. Previously, Fabletics’ business model looked like this:

You log onto Fabletics website and are directed to a lifestyle quiz designed to teach the service about your style and workout habits. After you complete the quiz, you are presented with a small selection of outfits based on your responses. The beginning of this process is obligation-free, you will not be charged until you make a selection from these outfits or any other outfit from the website’s catalog. Your first outfit will cost you $25 on Pinterest, and upon your purchase you will be signed up for their monthly service which allows you to choose a new outfit to be delivered to your door once a month for about $50, or opt out any time before the sixth of each month for no charge.

With their new, physical stores, the entire Fabletics experience can change for prospective customers. You can either treat them as any other store, where you go in, check out the selection, make your purchase and nothing more, or you can use the store to try on Fabletics’ clothes, see if you like how they look and feel and then make your first purchase and sign up for Fabletics VIP–their subscription service–right there in the store. For many people, the ability to try on the clothes before they make a decision to sign up may be the factor that convinces them that the clothes are worth it, and no matter the location the prices are the same with VIP.

Fabletics already has seven physical locations, and they are hoping to expand this number to 100 within the next three years. With this expanded reach, many more customers will have the opportunity and flexibility that the online-offline hybrid model offers, and the experience will be allowed to become even more personalized than it already is, fitting the comforts and preferences of the customer and offering options for those who aren’t quite tech-savvy enough to handle all of their shopping online.

Keith Mann: A Man for the Future

Successful business man, philanthropist, and caring benefactor are all titles Keith Mann carries. Keith Mann is founder and CEO of Dynamic Search Partners. With over 15 years of experience in the executive search industry, Mann is an expert in all aspects of managing hedge funds. Mann uses his personal experience working with hedge funds in his Dynamic Search Partners business. Dynamic Search Partners seeks to connect different industries with qualified professionals to help them build platforms, and to complete investment marketing. Dynamic Search Partners has been so successful that it now works with businesses all around the world with accounts in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

Mann and Dynamic Search Partners isn’t all business though. In 2015, they partnered with Uncommon Schools for a true investment in the future. Uncommon Schools is an organization that helps prepare low-income students for a future in college. It has created many charter schools on the East Coast and helped many young students start a successful future. Dynamic Search Partners helped Uncommon Schools raise $22,000 to help pay for testing in one of their new charter schools.

Mann does not create student success as only a business venture. Keith Mann and his wife Keely also created a scholarship, the Scholarship for Professional Achievement, to be awarded to one graduating senior each year from one of Uncommon Schools’ Brooklyn-based high-schools. Students must write a 1000 word essay about what they hope to achieve in college and beyond in order to receive the $5000 scholarship.

But Mann’s philanthropic effort doesn’t stop there. In the early months of 2015 Keith and Keely Mann bought lunch for the 54th precinct of the NYPD not once, but twice. The couple wanted to show support for the police force during a tumultuous time and they thought this lunch of thanks was the best way to show it. “Our officers deserve to be thanked for their service, not attacked in their attempts to keep people safe,” Mann said.

Keith Mann has greatly invested in the future both professionally and personally. There is no telling what this CEO will invest in next.

Fabletics Bringing More Attention to Their Company With Physical Store Locations

Fabletics offers customers a twenty-five dollar first outfit deal if they decide to choose to become members of the Fabletics VIP membership. Over one million people decided to become Fabletics VIP members. Even more people A staggering number of people by all counts. Fabletics is all about encouraging people to feel comfortable and stylish when they work out. It’s hard to feel positive about working out when you wear the same baggy pair of sweats and a lumpy t-shirt.

The Fabletics business has been booming so much that the company decided to go ahead and step out of the box of what was working for them. They were against opening physical locations, because the cost of their clothing would go up. Surprisingly when they dipped their feet into opening six stores -once of which was in the well known shopping center the Mall of America- the Fabletics company flourished even more in areas around these stores. They didn’t have to raise the cost of the active wear in the physical locations, because sales were good around the store even if the sales did not solely take place within the stores. The company decided that there must have been many customers who were going into the stores to try on clothing or to look at the Fabletics fabric to decide if it was actually good quality enough. Then they went home to purchase what they liked online. Of course sales happened within the physical location stores as well. Another part of having physical locations is that the location itself serves as an advertisement in some ways. Even if people don’t go inside the store when they are out shopping they might see it in a mall or in a shopping area of a city. Since stores are usually covered in posters and signs, it’s essentially the same thing as a billboard advertisement. As of right now, Fabletics is going ahead with opening up to one hundred Fabletics active wear physical locations in the upcoming years. The website Racked published an article about Fabletics’s decision to expand their physical locations.

Over the years the one issue Fabletics has been faced with is customers who do not understand their VIP membership. This shouldn’t be so much of a problem if customers are going to the physical locations to have a sales person tell them exactly what the VIP membership is all about. It’s still been a problem in some ways for those who do not educate themselves or read on the Fabletics website what the membership entails. Always read all the information if you decide to become a member. Simply put the VIP membership gives customers discounts and store points. It costs forty-nine dollars and ninety-five cents each month to have the membership. If you are constantly buying new gym or athleisure wear, this is certainly a good deal for you though because the discount is worth the monthly charge. For those who do not buy a lot of athletic wear each month, they can skip a monthly charge as long as they do so before the fifth of each month. The VIP membership is always available for cancelation if a customer is tired of the charge.

Whether you shop at one of the new physical locations or at the Fabletics online store at https://twitter.com/fabletics?lang=en, just make sure to educate yourself about the VIP membership on the website or by asking a sales associate. If it isn’t something you want to try right away, know that you can shop as a guest shopper.

Some of the dresses have built in bras and all are designed to elicit the minimum amount of effort when getting ready for a day or night out. Also, the material the dresses are made of acts in the same way as compression tights, making our bodies look the very best, just like our favorite workout wear.

The line uses the same idea as the dresses, taking our favorite everyday active wear and turning it into in a swimsuit that not only looks great but allows us to move and stay active without worrying about an embarrassing slip.

The activewear market began heating up a few years ago as more and more women began combining comfort and style to create a whole new fashion trend. Hudson co-founded Fabletics in order to give consumers better options when it came to activewear, according to Fabletics.com.
