TigerSwan and James Reese are Unique
Former Delta Force commander, James Reese, founded his TigerSwan, LLC, in 2008. TigerSwan is a Global Stability and Crisis Management services and consulting firm that provides due diligence and all-source protection from fraud and corruption for clients with operations in more than 50 countries. TigerSwan uses state-of-the-art technology and monitoring to create a secure and safe environment.
James Reese is the Chairman of the TigerSwan firm, which is also a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. As a decorated combat leader and a disabled veteran, he retired from the Delta Force in 2007 after more than two decades and is regarded as an experienced cross-functional leader with more than three decades of successful achievements inside and outside of TigerSwan.
One of James Reese’s dedications is speaking to groups about TigerSwan and his background, and one such occasion was a Chevy Tahoe and Suburban event, FRIEND OR FOE, at The Range Complex (TRC), which is a North Carolina facility for training special military officers stationed at the Fort Bragg Army base. James Reese is also one of the co-founders of TRC. He likes sharing some of the particulars of the training with Delta Force, which is the most elite Special Ops Team in the world.
The amazing experience included the simulation of hostage rescue mission in the middle of the night by special field operatives with live ammunition being fired using infrared night goggles to navigate a full-size Chevy SUV in unfamiliar territory at speeds up to 100 mph. There were shooting exercises including a target 800 meters away with a long-range rifle and trying to learn to eye a perfectly still metal breastplate through a gun scope, and more.
The event was particularly focused on highlighting how the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe are often among the most trusted tools and the team’s first and last line of defense for some of the United State’s most elite special forces. Reese said that they need something that always works and, when it is run into or gets hit with bullets, it still goes.
Reese detailed how a Chevy Tahoe one time helped save him and his commander during a Baghdad insurgent ambush and how they trust the reliability on covert missions. They don’t need anything fancy; they need something that works each time and can be depended on.

Richard Liu is one of China’s biggest business influencers. He is the owner of JD.com, an eCommerce website the size of Amazon. JD.com services all of China and is considered the largest online retailer of the country (on a par with Amazon in the USA). The only difference between Amazon and JD.com is that JD.com is privately held.
How did Richard Liu Come Up with the JD.com Business Model?
In a recent interview with David Rubinstein, he says the founding of the company happened almost by accident. At the time he was owner of 12 retail outlets for computer accessories. However, in 2004, the SARS epidemic occurred. He sent all the employees home as he did not want them to fall sick. However, he faced a difficult challenge. How to sell product without a store front. This is when his manager suggested starting an online store. Thus was born JD.com
In the beginning the online store only sold computer accessories, but every year they added a new product line. It took them six years to have products that ranged from simple items like grocery products to large appliances.
How Does JD.com Stand Out from The Competition?
Early on, Richard Liu Qiangdong knew that the key to beating his competition was to work on product delivery. If he could lower the product delivery times, he could sell more. Today, he has over 100,000 employees and 500 distribution centers located across China. In Beijing, he delivers in a matter of hours and anywhere else in China takes a day or at most two. It is this logistics model that makes business so successful in China and throughout the world. In fact, it is a model replicated by Amazon in the US.
What Does the Future Hold?
Richard Liu is still a relatively young man. At 45, he has no intention of retiring. He says that over the next two decades he plans on expanding JD.com until it becomes the largest retail online provider in the world.

Alastair Borthwick died at the age of 90 in 2003. His long life of spectacular adventure and an uncanny ability to write about it in an engaging style that captivated readers made him a living legend in his native Scotland and across Great Britain.
He was born in the small Scottish village of Rutherglen in South Lanarkshire. He spent his childhood there and later moved to Troon. He eventually found his way to Glasgow and left high school at age 16. He took an entry-level job at the Glasgow Herald – and so began the career of a man who was to become one of the most storied journalists in Scottish-British history.
At first, he wrote no stories but only wrote down copy as dictated to him by seasoned journalists. But young Alastair Borthwick demonstrated early on that he wanted a bigger role in the newspaper business and begged his superiors to let him write stories. That he did. Soon after, Borthwick began working in a section of the newspaper called “Open Air.” It was there he found his true calling.
Open Air was dedicated to stories of the outdoors. At the time. So-called “hillwalking” and climbing were generating serious interest from nature enthusiasts. Exploration of the Scottish Highlands captured the imagination of a deeply economically depressed time in 1930s-era Scotland. Exploring and hiking was great escapism. Those who could not strike out on their own adventures had the next best thing in reading Alastair Borthwick’s stories about his forays into the wilds.
Alastair Borthwick would eventually write a book about his outdoor exploits. In 1939 he published “Always a Little Bit further.” The book found a ready audience and sold well. It also became a classic over the years and is still in print today. Always A Little Bit Further is considered a landmark work in Scottish literature.
Borthwick also fought in World War II. His war experiences produced a second classic book, “Sans Peur,” also widely regarded as a remarkable achievement and a classic of Scottish letters.
Alastair Borthwick spent decades as a top broadcast journalist for the BBC which helped spread his fame and name recognition as an author and reporter.
