Fortune Rated CEO
Cola’s second fortune rating came from working at Accolade Global, a capital investment firm, where he was chairman and CEO. When he began at the company, it was offline and profiting at $3 million in revenue a year. With Cola as chairman and CEO, the company sold off a lot of commercial investment properties and instead bought intellectual properties, such as domains. The company developed websites and went online. When Cola left, about 4 years later, the company was making a profit of $17 million a year.
The third time Cola became a fortune rated CEO was for his work at the Lucentra Corporation. Lucentra is an international consulting firm specializing in expanding international business. It was a somewhat small company before Cola was hired as CEO. Lucentra was left without a CEO in the beginning days of the first quarter. Cola was hired approximately 15 days into the quarter and he came in with a vision. This vision led to an increase in Lucentra’s online presence and business knowledge expertise. Twenty-two days after being hired, he gained Lucentra a 193 percent profit. This was due to the world stock exchange and was, and still is, the largest profit ever recorded in a first quarter. Cola has had a great amount of success in business and is revered for the work he has done.
