Arthur Becker, a Managing Member of Madison Partners, LLC, is at the top of his game. With a background in several different industries, Becker is one of New York’s leading businessmen. His current business venture, Madison Partners, focuses on real estate and early stage Bio Tech.
Early in his career, see: fashionista.com, Becker developed a professional interest in technology. The tech industry is fast moving and ever-changing. The high-speed business deals offered Becker a challenge he couldn’t refuse. Even though he’s worked in other industries, spending 7 years as a senior advisor at the Vera Wang fashion company, technology-based companies are always attracting his eye.
After working at NaviSite and ZINIO, Becker’s taste for technology and real estate blossomed. After selling NaviSite in 2011, he began developing condominiums all over New York and Miami, Florida. Keeping up with his love for technology, he also often took notice of some early stage biotech companies. Eventually, he founded a company that would allow him to satisfy both his interests.
Like all good business professionals, Becker works best when he’s working with other like-minded people. When he’s working with professionals who he respects, it pushes him to be more effective. Real estate is the intrigue that pushes him furthest.
Becker often talked on LA Times about one particular habit he’s had to overcome in order to become as successful has he is. Trying to balance his passionate drive with critical thinking isn’t easy for him. When he first gets an idea or hears about an idea, he becomes so excited and wants to get started right then. He often has to calm himself down and use critical thinking to focus his efforts.
Having worked in several different businesses, he’s failed more often than not. Over the years, he’d like to think that he’s learned to avoid failing because of similar pitfalls.
