President Dennis Kweicinski and immediate past CFO Maxine Harmatta present CEO and Chairman of the Board Bob Sloss with a plaque commemorating 45 years with Connor Manufacturing Services in Portland, Oregon this past May 24th. Headquartered in California’s Silicon Valley, with wholly-owned manufacturing facilities in North America, SE Asia and China, Connor Manufacturing has a unique global footprint that is positioned to employ any or all of its resources toward the client’s project, resulting in maximum efficiency through pre-project planning and design, engineering, material management and quality control stages.

This “value proposition” relates to innovative rapid response and speed to market, product price sensitivity, and ease of doing business that Connor clients have come to expect. This dynamic results from Connor’s internal philosophy, which was founded on the importance of the employee and how they are treated. Creating a better work place attracts better employees. Creating an environment where convictions of a strong work ethic and fairness carries from employees, to suppliers, and to the client; promoting an atmosphere of success for all.

The Deutsche Bank AG – DOJ Dance

Richard Wottrich is an exclusive contributor to Seeking Alpha. The following article was posted October 4th, 2016: Summary Deutsche Bank continues to pursue a swift deal with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Will a DOJ deal take pressure off Deutsche Bank’s share price? The German government is publicly refusing to backstop Deutsche Bank.   Deutsche Bank continues to pursue a swift deal with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Deutsche Bank didn’t trade in Germany (DBK) on Monday, a holiday, but its U.S.-listed stock (NYSE:DB) was down to $12.81 (- 2.17%) by midday, resuming a roller-coaster ride for the bank’s shares.

The odds of the DOJ agreeing to such a deal ahead of the U.S. presidential election on November 8th are slim and none – hence the uncertainty will continue for at least another month. Deutsche Bank has assets of $2 trillion and over $247 billion in cash on hand.The bank just sold Abby Life, a British insurance subsidiary, for $1 billion. Deutsche Bank AG is also selling a $3.9 billion stake in Chinese lender Huaxia Bank Co. and is seeking permission to move those proceeds out of China. In the Orwellian-speak of the global banking world “too-big-to-fail” banks’ are called G-SIBs, for globally systemically important banks. Deutsche Bank is a G-SIB and thus a surrogate for the entire European Union banking sector. Deutsche Bank is the lead...
