Wes Edens is well-known in the investment sector for his position at Fortress Investment Group as CEO and founder. Since first becoming public, Fortress Investment Group has grown exponentially, literally from millions to billions of dollars over the course of the companies history. Wes Edens has played a crucial role int he companies development and business strategies over the past twenty years. Thanks to his efforts, Fortress Investment Group is known as one of the largest alternative investment companies in the world today.
Wes Eden has become more focused on his entrepreneurial endeavors over the years, spending more time around the world on different pursuits. Recently, Wes Edens has been backing the production of the Bright line Train system that is being built in Florida. This new train system is going to help thousands of residents make their way from one city to the next, in this case, Miami and Fort Lauderdale, within just a matter of 30 to 40 minutes. With the excessive traffic in the area, it can take upwards of three hours for people to make it to their jobs out of town. While this may seem like a mild annoyance, it actually costs companies a lot of money when their employees are late or do not show up at all for work.
Brightline will be a first of its kind in the United States because there are no other privately owned train systems in the country. So far, Brightline testing is doing well, which means it is likely that it will continue to grow over the coming years. Miami and Fort Lauderdale are the first, but Wes Edens wants to bring Brightline to the entire country at some point to help cut down on traffic costs tremendously. More importantly, this will save a lot of money for residents for their daily commutes as well as cut down on emissions in the area.
