In the corporate world of financial management, James River Capital Corp. has acquired a reputation for being one of the most respectable and skill proficient firms in the field. The Richmond, Virginia based investment firm made its original debut in the financial management industry in 1986 under the name KP Futures Management Corp.—the title under which James River Capital operated as an alternative financial investment division for Kidder, Peabody & Co., Inc. However, it was after running nearly a decade of investment operations that KP Futures Management detached from Kidder upon being acquired by its current CEO (Paul Saunders) in 1995 and began running as an independent investment firm as “James River”. Moreover, it was after Paul Sanders and his business partner Kevin Brandt had taken over that James River Capital began to really thrive and receive the professional recognition that it deserved.
Today, Paul Saunders currently presides as the CEO/Chairman/Principal/and Portfolio Manager of James River Capital and he came to acquire those several positions because he possessed the corporate knowledge, experience, and had grown to develop a professional relationship with the company through his previous employment with Kidder. Prior to becoming the CEO of James River, Paul Saunders had initially serviced as both the Managing Director and President for Kidder—placing him in the optimum position to take over the company. Nonetheless, it was after the acquisition and being placed under Saunders’ corporate guidance that James River grew to not only operate as an Investment Advisor, but it became registered with the SEC and CFTC to operate as a Commodity Trading Advisor and a Commodity Pool Operator as well.
As a devout businessman, Paul Saunders came to formulate a recipe for success from his years of service and experience in the financial management field—a recipe that he managed to share with the public. According to Saunders, James River has been allotted its time of prosperity because Saunders has implemented the foundation of integrity within the company—treating every employee with the utmost appreciation and valuing their service to the company. As mentioned by Saunders, many companies will most likely suffer from delayed growth/productivity if the employees aren’t feeling motivated to efficiently do their jobs. When employees begin to show a loss of control with task/time management, display a lack in confidence, a lack of transparency (feeling overlooked), or even begin to change their overall attitude, they are most likely exuding symptoms of “burnout”. As further mentioned by Paul Saunders, burnout is the lack of motivation to effectively fulfill corporate obligations on behalf of the employee. When employees start to show any of these symptoms, Paul Saunders states that it is essential to the welfare of the company to address these issues. To relieve employees of the stresses associated with burnout, Saunders states that companies can begin to socially engage with employees (on an individual basis) to understand how they are feeling, offer work related workshops to curb the feeling of burnout, offer incentives to inspire goal fulfillment, and offer encouragement to take up new hobbies.
