Finding time to complete these difficult to finish climbing expeditions has become one of the amazing facts of life for one of the busiest investors in the U.S. Wes Edens remains the co-chair of the Fortress Investments brand and heads the New Fortress Energy group as it expands its energy production plans into the Caribbean. At a recent conference in Jamaica, Edens spoke about the plans his team have to develop a Liquified Natural Gas power plant in the nation and add to the growing number of renewable energy sources already in use.
On the sporting front, Wes Edens has become known for his success as the owner of the Milwaukee Bucks co-owner who is usually seen as the face of the franchise. Edens has attempted to convince two of his co-owners to join him in scaling Denali but has not had a positive response as of yet. The Bucks have returned to the top of the standings in the east and are hoping for a deep run in the NBA playoffs with the aid of a newly constructed state-of-the-art arena. The new home of the Bucks was one of the promises made by Wes Edens when he and his ownership consortium took control of the team and refused to take the Milwaukee franchise out of its home market.
