Today, the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey hosts its 89th Annual Meeting and Luncheon at the Hilton Hotel in Woodcliff Lake, N.J. The celebration brings over 500 business leaders together and is a forum to gain unique insights and share industry trends while making valuable contacts.
Entrepreneurs are the driving force behind new and ever-changing trends in business, and the keynote speaker at our event, Paul Fireman, is an excellent example. Mr. Fireman is a highly successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and Chairman of Fireman Capital. He is best known up to this point as the founder, former chairman, and CEO of Reebok International, Ltd. who turned that idea into one of the best-known athletic footwear brands in the world through the introduction of a broad array of products to a global market. Paul sold Reebok to Adidas in 2006 and 2008 along with his son Dan, co-founded Fireman Capital Partners, LLC.
Mr. Fireman is set to discuss his new project, Liberty Rising. By creating Liberty Rising, a proposed $4.6 billion project adjoining Liberty National on the Hudson River, at the south end of Jersey City. The centerpiece of Liberty Rising is a 95-story skyscraper that would integrate a casino, a hotel, and apartments, along with luxury shops and an entertainment complex. Mr. Fireman will provide more insight on Liberty Rising and how he decides which projects to pursue and which he should not.
