Norman Pattiz Podcast One Exec

Podcasts have grown in popularity with just about every comedian, expert and number of celebrities hosting their own show. In 2012 broadcast entrepreneur Norman saw a need for an untapped market, audio on demand.

Podcast One launched and quickly became one of the largest podcast networks in the world. With the success of shows such as Freakonomics, 99% Invisible, Radiolab and The Chive, Podcast One became home to over 200 shows. The network also produces podcasts from some of the biggest names in podcasting-Dr. Drew, Adam Carolla, Steve Austin and more. Learn more about Norman Pattiz:

Prior to launching Podcast One, Pattiz founded the Westwood One. This company quickly grew to be the largest provider in sports, news, talk and entertainment. It is no surprise that Podcast One would be a huge success. Pattiz has such a reputation in the industry that President Clinton appointed him to work on the Broadcasting Board of Governors of The United States of America.

One of the main reasons Norman Pattiz jumped into the podcast game is that he loves that content consumption is democratic. Podcasts give people the complete choice of what they will listen to and when. At any time one can download a podcast that was just released or released years ago. People have the ability to pick and choose what guests they listen to as well. It’s completely down to preference.

When listening to a podcast a variety of ads run before, during and after the show. These ads pay for the creation of the podcast, and sometimes for the hosts. Quite often these podcasts are produced and available for free.

Pattiz partnered with the Edison Research VP of Strategy, Tom Webster, to study the success of podcast advertising. Listeners would exposed to five different product and service categories and then quizzed on the ads that were within the podcast. Ultimately Pattiz and Webster found that ads are successful in getting their message across to listeners.

Not only were more people able to name products and services after listening, but they also had positive opinions about the advertisers and products. The goal was to verify independently that podcasts do have an impact on sales and branding.

Mike Baur: Swiss Banking Star Turned Start-up Guru

Mike Baur, who spent more than twenty years in the Swiss banking industry, found himself taking an unexpected career turn in the last few years. Once a rising star in the industry who advised some of the richest people in the world concerning managing their wealth, Baur has found a new position as Executive Chairman of Swiss Startup Factory, and has been spending much time and energy sharing his expertise as a mentor to young Swiss entrepreneurs.


Originally from Fribourg, Switzerland, Baur began his career in finance at the age of 16, like many young people at that time, as a commercial apprentice at Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), one of the country’s most prestigious financial institutions. Apprentices were then expected to follow a lengthy, secure and prosperous career trajectory in the Swiss banking industry. And sure enough, Baur worked for many years at UBS as well as at Clariden Lieu, another well-known financial institution in Switzerland. Baur, who has an MBA from the University of Rochester and an Executive MBA from the University of Berne, has also served as board member at some of Switzerland’s bigger private banks.


Things began to change for Baur in 2008, when the financial crisis occurred worldwide—especially affecting the banking industry. And so at age 39, Baur willingly forsook the sizeable regular salary he’d been receiving from the banking industry for many years, and together with his partners Oliver Walzer and Max Meister, founded Swiss Start-up Factory in 2014—which has grown to become the biggest and best early stage start-up accelerator in the country. At Swiss Start-up Factory, Baur’s primary roles are fundraising and financing rounds.


Swiss Start-up Factory has done exceedingly well since its inception. Two years after they began, Baur and his partners at Swiss Start-up Factory became partners with CTI Invest, with Baur being named deputy managing director of CTI. Almost simultaneously, Swiss Start-up Factory entered into a partnership with Fintech Fusion, and began its accelerator program with the Goldback Group.


Outside of Swiss Start-up Factory, Baur has been on the panel of judges at the pitching competition at Switzerland’s University of St Gallen START Summiteer. He was also one of the key speakers on the Investor Panel at the WorldWebForum Next Generation. Baur’s career path is so notable that profiled in the Wall Street Journal last December.

CTRMA: Revolutionizing the Transport Sector

Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) is an autonomous government body which was established in 2002 in order to ameliorate the transportation system in the two counties of Central Texas. The CTRMA under the dynamic leadership of Mike Heiligenstein, the executive director, has revolutionized the transport system in the area by putting in place a modern network of transport for the region of Central Texas. The agency has built a network of highways and flyovers throughout the counties connecting the whole region of Central Texas together.



The CTRMA has built State Highway 130 which starts from near San Antonio. The toll revenue on this road has shrunk because of the low number f vehicles passing through it. Explaining the low number of vehicles on SH 130, the Executive Director of CTRMA, Mike Heiligenstein, posits that the huge traffic flow on Interstate 35 and the small number of lanes, the problem that will take the next 20 years for it to lessen traffic. The existing lanes on this road are a few and more lanes need to be added to these to make the flow of traffic smoother. However, Mike Heiligenstein thinks that the problem cannot be solved by merely increasing the flow of traffic on SH 130 by diverting from the Interstate 35. The solution should entail a broader approach entailing the new ways to enhance capacity and to change travel behavior.



To solve the growing problem of poor performance by toll roads, Mike Heiligenstein suggests a novel approach for leveraging public money into a program. According to Mike, the money spent on the extension of 183A totally came from the toll revenue rather than from tax dollars. He suggests creating a system of toll type tags for vehicles passing through county roads because currently, county roads do not have the proper structure to cater to the growing demand and the vehicles with huge weight.



Mike Heiligenstein has been serving the CTRMA as its Executive Director since 2003 when he was chosen for the position by the board of directors of the agency. He has vast experience of managing public matters and public service. He remained an elected official in Williamson County for 23 years during which he oversaw the implementation of the decisions regarding the overall infrastructure of the County. He also remained a member of several other bodies working for strengthening the infrastructure.



Mike earned master degrees in both Government and Business from the University of Texas. He is known throughout the U.S. as an authority on matters related to infrastructure and transportation networks.

Kate Hudson And Justfab Have Created Marketing Magic

Amazon is one of the largest clothing retailers of the internet, covering at least 20% of the market share. Kate Hudson’s brand, Fabletics aims to take on the internet giant with their unique ways of marketing. Already the brand has had $250 million in revenue within the past few years. She has teamed up with marketing genius Adam Goldenberg and his own fashion company JustFab.


The tastes of online consumers are changing rapidly and demand different types of products. Online retailers need to offer unique marketing techniques that offer a lifestyle package rather than just fancy clothing. Fabletics has had a lot of success with their subscription based packages, in which they pick out clothing for the customer at a flat monthly rate.


The company has obtained a cult following of subscribers just like Apple. Owning one of Kate Hudson’s products has a certain prestige among the female fitness community. The inclusion of belonging to the latest club or trend is a very powerful marketing technique. They had been marketing their brand as ‘high value’ since their initial launch.


With Fabletics growing rapidly online, they had also decided to open several retail stores in Hawaii, Florida and California. In total, they have 16 stores with plans of rapidly opening more retail locations. They had even announced that they see up to 100 stores being opened in the foreseeable future.


Within one of their retail store, you may notice the reverse show rooming effect. Many customers have already browsed the retail items online and simply want to see the products in person. After trying on clothes, the items may be added to their online shopping cart and customers may choose to make their purchase online. A high percentage of customers entering the store for the first time end up becoming club members since online prices are so cheap.


The online store will use local user data and market information to dictate the items that they will store. Their online shop only stocks items that remain popular and in fashion, avoiding any chance of mediocrity. The company aims to compete with the other few fashion brands that use this extent of data awareness.


A Foodie Stays Fit had given the Fabletics membership a thorough review. She details the quality of each clothing item she received, the benefits of being a subscriber and the prices she paid. She was overall impressed with the quality of her leggings an compared them to other high end retail items.


For those that are not sure what they need, Fabletic has a lifestyle quiz for existing or potential customers. The quiz will use information regarding clothing sizes, preferred physical activities and favorite color templates to determine the clothing styles that are suitable. For subscribers, this quiz also contributes to how their professional stylists pick out clothing for them.


Adam Goldberg and Don Ressler are the guys behind the product and receive a lesser amount of media attention. They have had a lot of success with his online clothing ventures since the early days of the internet. Fabletics has become one of the most successful online ventures ever.
