Bio: Little is known about this man that has recently entered the streets of Seattle, though he has had made a name for himself within the finance world within a short period of time. Arthur McGowan seems to be a man of wealth and prestige seeing he was able to walk into Seattle’s banking district and make those tight wads kiss his ass and lick his oxfords. Reports from within one banking firm state that McGowan simply marched into the presidents office and within a few minutes the president and CEO Walter Graham was escorted out of his office by security; and McGowan remained and took charge of the firm. This was within minutes and reports indicate that he gobbled up multiple other banking and finance firms within the city, as well within New Orleans, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Miami, Dallas and Philadelphia.
This unknown man seems to be one of great wealth and power, so much so that corporate America is concerned about this enigma and the stock market took a sudden decline dropping over 15 points before quickly rising back up to a record high. Arthur McGowan is a man of mystery and someone that we should watch closely as he has made waves within the banking and corporate districts without ever firing a shot or producing a weapon other than his cell phone. Our reports indicate that he is the CEO and President of McGowan International Distributions based out of New York and McGowan Travel Industries based out of Atlanta. The market shows that his newest company McGowan Hospitality Firm went public and opened setting records for brand new firm with single shares rising to over 20,000 credits per share in a single hour and ending at a 55,000 credits a share after starting at 1,500 credits per share. It is reported that McGowan travel has purchased American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Jet Blue and United Airlines; Sir Arthur McGowan is also the owner of the privately owned security firm McGowan Securities that has received the sole contract to secure our national airports, train stations and ports over the once federally controlled TSA firm.
If this man is within the shadows is unknown, though with a bankroll like his I would seriously consider that he is a mover and shaker within the underworld seeing nobody has that kind or resources and assets without employing questionable tactics. It seems that Arthur McGowan has moved as into the financial industry seeing that after removing CEO Walter Graham from Emerald Finance he debuted McGowan Financial and would gobble up nearly 48% of the smaller banking firms and broker agencies keeping himself within the legal limit and just under the 51% required to breach the national monopoly laws. McGowan seems to be a shrewd businessman and one that many in the corporate world are dumbfounded they have never once engaged or traded with. Though according to Aztec CEO Jose Domingo he is actually glad that he never engaged in trade discussions with Arthur McGowan before and worries that he might one day have to. According to Walter Graham dealing with McGowan is like dealing with the devil himself, he simply controls the negotiations, flow of the conversation and is able to convince you to sell your company and your shares to him at a loss; it almost feels like you are being scolded by your grandfather and he gives you that “I am disappointed in you look” and you simply cave in to what he has to offer. Emerald Finance was not for sale when he entered my office and within five minutes he had me convinced to sell my majority share to him at a 15 million credit loss and than once the paperwork was signed and the money was transferred his demeanour changed and he called security and had me escorted out of the building and alerted me that if I ever step foot in one of the McGowan buildings again I would be arrested for trespassing; it was at that point I felt I had made a deal with the devil.
