Kompani Group is proud to announce that we have added Primetime Race Group and Joel Feinberg to our client roster.
Most will find Joel to be a young, athletic, handsome man with a with a passion for success which is most certainly enviable if not contagious. Some might view him as quiet, shy, possibly aloof. But once he begins to open up about his life, you quickly find a more passionate and enthusiastic entrepreneur. Joel is what some refer to as a modern day “mover and shaker.”
Coming out of high school, Joel decided to embark on a career playing golf professionally. After six years on the circuit, he hung up his clubs to give significant time and energy to various business endeavors including Capital Real Estate Group, followed by the startup of SPORTS TALK 790 AM – THE TICKET, Primetime Media Group and Primetime Race Group.
Joel took on mountain biking, becoming a nationally ranked cross-country biker. Rising to the pinnacle of the sport Joel competed in what was known as, “The toughest mountain bike race on the planet,” a three day, three hundred mile race through the mountains and rainforest of Costa Rica. Joel also played ice hockey on a men’s league based in South Florida.
Primetime Race Group is Joel’s most recent business venture, a Florida based company specializing in professional motorsports as well as sports marketing. Primetime currently campaigns a Dodge Viper in the GT2 class of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) which is the most prominent road race series in North America and an Elan DP02 in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) Lites Series, a support series to the ALMS. With 10 trips to the IMSA Lites podium, 11 top 5 finishes in 2008, and 2 first and 3 other podium finishes through June of 2009 it is clear to see that Primetime is a top contender.
Joel’s passion for winning has become the foundation of his success!

Game over for GameStop? GameStop’s main revenue source is through the sale of those shiny little discs. What will happen when the developers exclusively release their games via the console’s online marketplaces? People will less likely go to a location to buy a physical item. Yes, it’s great to get the little booklet, and some of those exclusive packs have some cool swag. But we find it much more convenient to download the games, which actually also results in increased sales of add-ons for the distributors.
This leads us to our next observation. In a recent article that we read about the reported sales of the game, Crackdown (1.5 million), the developer mentions that they only broke even and in actuality sold about 2-3 million copies. What happened to the extra revenue? GameStop and other retailers made money on the used games. I believe the developers should have a cut of that money. We can argue that when you buy a car, the manufacturer does not see residuals on future sales of that car. A game is digital and remains intact, the only depreciation would be on the packaging or the disc itself.
So back to the point at hand. GameStop will eventually be in the same boat with the music business going from record, to cassette, to CD, to online download. How could GameStop reinvent itself?
- Maybe it will become an antique dealer of old games and consoles. (which is somewhat does now)
- A place that only sells the consoles, and peripherals.
- Stand alone kiosk that resells the games onto a portable storage device. The kiosk being placed strategically in malls, convenience stores, etc.
What would you do if your industry changed as fast as GameStop’s industry? Do you have a contingency plan in place that will allow you to evolve just in time to save your business? Things to ponder! Sometimes the surest things have a way to undermine themselves. Don’t grow stale with your current products or services. Observe and always look for the next frontier in your industry, or take advantage of your perfected processes and look to apply those processes in an entirely new industry. Always have a plan ready for how to reinvent yourself when and if your find yourself swimming against the current.

Why invest on Wall Street when you can invest in your own business ideas, without giving up your current job?
Kompani Group’s business model offers a very effective “breeding” platform for ideas that are born by seasoned executives who are currently enjoying seniority and well paid positions at larger national – and international corporations.
Just because you are a senior executive at a Fortune 1000 company doesn’t mean that you don’t have great ideas for new business ventures that fall outside the core business of your current employers business model, and instead of just allowing those great ideas collect dust over the years or see someone else a few years later build a thriving business based on the same ideas, you can now take those ideas to Kompani Group who in return for a performance fee and an equity stake in the new business will allow your conceptual ideas to “take flight”.
An international hotelier wanted to revamp its own brand as well as those for each of its sub-brands, without causing internal competition between properties. Principals from Kompani Group narrowed in on the key experience each family of resorts delivered and then tied it into the parent company’s new brand image that redefines all-inclusive travel… The Infinite Experience or Infinite Luxury.
Where bright, sunny days are only revealed by the cheerful nature of staff and guests, Allegro is a resort experience built around delivering Infinite Joy. Always in motion, and constantly creating vivid colorful memories, every stay is an adventure guests won’t soon forget.
Few places on Earth deliver the kind of exotic sophistication found at Occidental Grand resorts. An Infinite Escape awaits travelers in every way imaginable – whether it’s breathtaking beaches, ancient ruins, or artistic cultural experiences, these resorts are a departure from all expectations.
Like something out of a dream, where the whole world bends to every guest’s whim, the Infinite Luxury of Royal Hideaway resort is the crown jewel of the Occidental Hotels & Resorts family. It is elite vacationing at its absolute finest.
Occidental Hotels & and Resorts is based in Spain, Madrid and is a consortium consisting of 4 hotel brands, Allegro, Occidental Grand, Royal Hideaway and Occidental Hotels. The group owns and controls a total of 62 hotels and resorts in Europe and Latin America.
With the new positioning approved the next part of this project included consolidation of 7 pieces of marketing collateral into 2 brochures, refinement of the identity for each of the four Occidental Properties, development of new content, photography, retouching, printing and planning and design of all 4 individual web properties and www.OccidentalHotels.com . The consolidation of the multiple brochures in just two pieces have resulted in easier distribution logistics and significant cost savings.
The majority of bookings at Occidental resorts have always been, and will continue to be booked by Occidental’s loyal following of travel agents and tour operators. But as the expansion-and continued acquisitions strategy would significantly add capacity to Royal Hideaway it became apparent that Occidental would have to build a more effective online presence to help offset the increase in rooms with more online bookings. The brand alignment strategy allowed us to build one consolidated online booking web property for the four individual brands, which in return allowed Occidental to focus all e-marketing budgets on driving traffic directly to the main site or through product specific micro sites.
Result: Total direct online bookings increased fivefold in the 6 months following the launch of the new Occidental Hotels web site.
