Dr. Mark Holterman was born to two parents on a family-owned farm in rural Wisconsin. Neither of them had been to college. Nevertheless, education was important to them and they insisted young Mark go to school. In school, Mark excelled and soon he was bound for Yale University, a place upon which he left an indelible mark, followed by four incredible years at the University of Virginia Medical School (Crunchbase). What made Mark’s time at medical school so magical was not just the skills he learned there, or the philosophies of medicine which so entranced him, but also a young woman (and future surgeon) who would inspire him on to even greater things; not the least of which was a desire to take her hand in marriage.
After doctors Mark Holterman and Ai-Xuan Le tied the knot they set about hopping the globe, helping children wherever there was a need. First, they went to Canada, then they went to Vietnam. In 2011, Dr. Mark Holterman became a faculty member at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. He also began serving as CEO of Mariam Global Health, an investment fund geared specifically towards developing new and exciting medical technologies meant to improve the lives of the less fortunate.
Mark has also spent a great deal of his career researching in the field of regenerative medicine, a medical science some experts predict could lengthen the average lifespan of a human being significant. In addition to all of this, Mark maintains two medical practices in Illinois (one in Maywood, another in Peoria) and he remains active in the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Surgeons.
Mark’s favorite pursuit, however, is his involvement with the International Pediatric Specialists Alliance for the Children of Vietnam. Mark and his wife Dr. Ai-Xuan Le were inspired to reach out to, and care for, the people of Vietnam after a particularly emotional trip to that country in 1975. Their efforts there have done tremendous good, but that should be no surprise. Dr. Mark Holterman does well wherever he goes.

Corporate Integrity Management
Bruno Fagali has had a number of enviable stops throughout his professional journey. However, while he has had the pleasure of working in a number of Brazilian law firms, his most prestigious position while in employment has been serving as a corporate integrity manager at Nova/sb. As one of the largest advertising firms in the country, a considerable portion of the contracts Nova/sb gets into are with government bodies and agencies. Consequently, the advertiser is exposed to the many litigation risks associated with working with the government. For the last few years, Bruno Fagali has been working towards minimizing this risk by developing and maintaining a corporate integrity plan for the insurer.
In addition to working at Nova/sb, Bruno Fagali also owns his own law firm, Fagali Advocacy. He founded the firm with the genuine vision of advancing the law and justice. While still relatively young, the firm has grown to become one of the most sought after in the areas of compliance law, ethics, anticorruption law and administrative law. The law firm has in the past also taken on collective action cases. If it continues on its current trajectory, there is no doubt that Fagali Advocacy could become one of the largest, yet ethical law firms in the country.

Thanks to the efforts of Human Capital Management’s CEO, James Dondero, Dallas Zoo is now complete. James partnered with Zoo officials over the course of many years to create a picture-perfect dream home for the Zoo’s beloved celebrity Hippos, Adhama and Boipelo.
The new exhibit is more than two acres large, includes fresh, circulating water, soft grain sand, natural surroundings and a monorail line located above the pools. Visitors can now see the hippos without disturbing them. Dallas citizens have been waiting almost two decades for the Zoo to bring back these mesmerizing animals. The Zoo’s previous hippo resident passed away in 2001 – his name was Papa and he left behind no offspring.
It is difficult relocating hippos because they quickly adapt to a lifestyle and surroundings and so the new habitat had to be perfect and one with an unobtrusive visitor setting. To achieve this, the Zoo needed approximately $14 million and they were fortunate to find investment expert James Dondero. James founded HCM in the early 1990s. HCM helps investors from around the globe obtain credit solutions – but also focuses on giving back to the communities in which they’re located – and that is how Dondero helped Adhama and his female companion Boipelo find a fantastic new home at the Dallas Zoo. Adhama was previously located in Los Angeles, while Biopelo hails from Albuquerque. The Zoo hopes that after they settle into their new habitat and get comfortable with each other, they may breed future hippos for the Zoo and their visitors to learn from and enjoy.
