While putting the company in a financially sustainable position, it gives us the ability to focus on where we see real long term shareholder value. This transaction serves as a strategic focusing of the company’s efforts towards the B2B segment.“Offering both B2C and B2B services had synergies in the past, however, the current conflicting priorities of the two business areas, and increased complexity in the market, have lessened the potential offering on both fronts”.last_img read more

first_imgBEIJING, China: Jamaican sprinting star Veronica Campbell-Brown took time out to encourage 2015 IAAF World Championships 200m silver medallist Elaine Thompson after yesterday’s final inside the Bird’s Nest. Campbell-Brown, who finished third in 21.97 behind Thompson, 21.66 and Dafne Schippers, 12.63, believes Thompson, a debutante at this level of competition, has a bright future in the sport. “The key for her is to be mentally tough, take care of her body, eat right, train tight, stay positive. Don’t worry don’t stress and continue to work hard because the sky is the limit,” said Campbell-Brown, who made her first senior team as an 18 year-old at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. “It’s all in the head because no matter how hard you train, if you’re not focused right you cannot execute what you put in training. Campbell-Brown added the importance of Thompson’s development noting that the country must continue to develop and expose its athletes so that the country’s tradition of success can continue. “I am so proud of her,” said. Campbell-Brown. “It’s good for Jamaica that you have youngsters coming up because we have to keep it going. We have a history of great sprinters so its important that we keep it going and I’m just happy for her.” – A.L.last_img read more
