LeadFerret Launches Directory of Contacts at Top NASA Contractors

Many people don’t realize that the NASA “team” that has done things like put men on the moon and send a probe to Mars is actually 75% contractors.  That’s right, 3 out of 4 members of the greater NASA team are contractors.  The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) currently awards about $17 billion in contracts annually, and this directory is comprised of the companies who received the largest total dollar amount in awards in 2014.  The $17 billion these contractors are all getting a piece of may seem like a lot, and it is, but it’s actually down significantly from the 1960’s when NASA’s annual budget for contractors was routinely in excess of $30 billion (adjusted for inflation).  In fact, NASA currently spends only about .5% of the Federal budget on contracts, whereas in 1966 that number was over 4%.  In 1966 there were about 400,000 people dedicated to the NASA effort between direct NASA employees and contractors, while today that number is estimated to be only about 80,000.

None the less, there are still big dollars in NASA contracts, and when those contractors are awarded these contracts, they in turn also have significant budgets with which to deliver on those contracts.  That makes this directory ideal for subcontractors and/or anyone that provides a space exploration related product, service, or solution.

It’s also worth noting the interesting mix of companies and institutions that appear in this directory.  There are the usual suspects like Boeing and Lockheed Martin, but many people may be surprised to find out that some of the largest NASA contractors are actually universities.

This directory was compiled in part based on information found at bga-aeroweb.com and nasa.gov.

LeadFerret Sprouts Directory of Contacts at Green Companies

The world human population has grown more in the last 50 years that it did in the first 4 million years. The idea that humans need to change the way they use the world’s resource and the rate at which they pollute the air, soil, and water is gaining in popularity. It’s not just the extreme tree-hugging hippie minority that sees the value in “going green” any more. Even within the largest companies in corporate America sustainability and environmental responsibility has become paramount. It’s hard to say whether this is simply the result of the desire to have a positive public image, or it’s simply motivated by the bottom line, but either way it’s happening. In addition to tax benefits available for green companies, recent studies show that the majority of consumers actually prefer to purchase from companies with a “green” reputation, making environmental friendliness good for business. As a result, 69% of companies polled reported having one or more “green” initiatives.

LeadFerret Posts Directory of Contacts at The Largest Private Companies

The difference between private and public companies is pretty straight forward in definition: anyone can buy stock in public companies though stock exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ, while ownership in private companies is by invitation only, and they cannot legally sell shares to the general public. The natural course of the birth, growth, and evolution of a company typically means that with enough success they will eventually “go public.” However, in some instances that is not case, but private companies with $5 billion + in revenue tend to be very rare, which is why LeadFerret has chosen to highlight these companies with this specialty directory.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/largest-private-companies

In examining these companies, it makes sense to first consider why a company would choose to forgo the allure of public financing, recognition, and the prestige that comes with being listed on a major stock exchange. Of course, to be able to make the decision to remain private you have to have the cash to not need private funding, and a plan for long term sustainable leadership. In this way, private companies are rate because it’s not easy to remain private for multiple generations. Once a company has the means to remain private, they then also have to have the desire to stay private and the fortitude to turn down promises of big financial gain constantly pushed in front of them by wholesale lenders. Often time the desire to stay private is exactly as it sounds, the desire to be private, as in the desire to retain privacy. Public companies are held to stringent reporting and disclosure laws and under far more scrutiny than private companies. The overlying principal is that leaders of public companies and legally responsible to always make the decision that is in the best interest of their shareholders, while private companies can be guided by other principals like personal gain, spiritualism, causes they care about, etc.

This also means that private companies tend to make decisions more quickly, which, by itself, is reason to be inserted in these companies. Anyone that has a product, service, or solution that is particularly applicable or relevant to privately help companies should find this directory useful.

LeadFerret Unveils Directory of Contacts in Companies Making Considerable Political Contributions

It’s a presidential election year and Political contributions, campaign spending, and super PACs (political action committees) are once again a hot topic. The media frequently mentions the corporations and interest groups that make the largest contributions to each candidate, but with this directory LeadFerret gives an inside look at the executives within these companies. Of course not every employee of a company shares the same political perspectives and opinions of those who pull the stings regarding campaign contributions, but this directory is at the very lease interesting and relevant because of the impending election and debate over campaign spending.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/companies-making-considerable-political-contributions

Campaign contributions and spending is very convoluted, so the purpose of this directly is not to explain the laws surrounding it. However, it is worth noting that, ironically, corporations are actually prohibited from making direct contributions to federal candidates and national political parties. Of course, as with all good law, there are plenty of loopholes. For example, companies can fund advertising even if it targets or promotes a specific candidate, as long as the spending is independent from the candidate and party committees. They may also give to candidates through political action committees (PACs), who in turn use said dollars to support candidates and causes of their choosing.

This directory offers an interesting glimpse into the executives in the companies making the most substantial political contributions, but it has additional value beyond that. These are politically aware, often politically biased, companies. Sometimes cause driven, almost always financially drive, and wiling and able to make what they see as a sound investment in the political system. This type of information could be useful for anyone trying to sell to these companies, partner with these companies, or even join one of these companies.
