American Friends of Whistler (AFOW) was an American charitable organization set up to enhance the Whistler community and foster greater understanding and friendship between Canadians and Americans, raising and distributing funds for health and human services, culture and the arts, and the environment and outdoor recreation in the Whistler community. Founded in July 2002 by a small group of Americans who spend time in Whistler as second home-owners, the group has donated millions of dollars to local Whistler non-profit organizations registered as a non-profit charity in Washington State. In 2019, the board made the decision to cease operations due to trouble being an all-volunteer organization keeping administrative costs under 3%. Former members decided to continue to be active in supporting the Whistler community through charitable giving as individuals, and maintain the AFOW website as a way to facilitate the continuing of charitable giving for the Whistler area.

  • 1927-

Bonne Bell is a cosmetics company aimed for teens. The company was best known for its line of astringents and cleansers named "10-0-6." In the 1970s, they expanded into a popular range of lip balms called Lip Smackers which became the company's signature product. Bonne Bell was founded in 1927 in Lakewood, Ohio by cosmetics salesman Jesse Bell, who named it after his daughter. Bell made his products on a hot plate in his basement and then sold his skin care products door to door. In the 1950s, the company pursued the outdoor market and developed sunscreens, heavy-duty moisturizers, and lip protectors for skiers, hikers, and joggers. In the 1960s, Bonne Bell sponsored the US Ski Team and many other amateur and professional sports events. In 1972, the company sponsored 10K marathons in 15 cities and many charitable races. By 1985, the business had grown into a $50 million enterprise. In 2007, the company largely relocated to Australia, and reduced American domestic representation. The relocation was largely at the request of the Vice President of Ideation, Hilary Bell, to the then CMO, James Ward, in a bid to globalize the "Smackers" Brand. By 2009, the company had returned to the United States. In January 2015, the company announced that the Bonne Bell and Lip Smackers brands would be acquired by Markwins International, though Bonne Bell will continue to distribute other brands in Europe, Asia, and Australia under the name Bell Family Brands. In accordance, the company also announced the partial closure of its headquarters, effective March 2015

Ernst & Young Global Ltd.

  • [oldest component 1849, merger] 1989-

Ernst & Young Global Ltd. (EY) is worldwide accounting firm and professional service network which is the product of the 1989 merger between two large accounting firms: Ernst & Whinney and Arthur Young & Co.. EY resulted from several mergers of ancestor firms over the last century and a half, the oldest of which was founded in 1849, in England, as Harding & Pullein. That same year, this firm was joined by an accountant named Frederick Whinney, who, a decade later, became a partner. After his son joined the firm, it was later renamed Whinney, Smith & Whinney, in 1894. In 1903, the firm Ernst & Ernst was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, by Alwin C. Ernst, and his brother, Theodore Ernst. In 1906, Arthur Young & Co. was set up by a Scotsman accountant, Arthur Young, in Chicago. Starting in 1924, these two American firms became allied with prominent British firms; Young with Broads Paterson & Co.; and Ernst with the aforementioned Whinney Smith & Whinney. The latter of these two mergers spawned Anglo-American partnership Ernst & Whinney in 1979, then the fourth largest accountancy firm in the world. A decade later, in 1989, Ernst & Whinney merged with the fifth largest firm globally at the time, Arthur Young & Co., to create Ernst & Young. The Ernst & Young merger created a firm with 6,100 partners and two chief executive officers, Ray Groves from Ernst & Whinney and William Gladstone from Arthur Young. In one of its first business decisions following the merger, Ernst & Young began to move into computer-aided software engineering. This step reflected Ernst & Young's diversification into management systems and strategic planning services for businesses. The process innovation services were sold worldwide, primarily to the insurance and banking industries. he 1990s, it was steeped in the controversy surrounding the crisis of the savings and loan industry. Ernst & Young's audits of 23 failed savings and loans were investigated by the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) under a subpoena issued in June 1991. Several judgments were rendered against Ernst & Young in connection with the investigation. In July 1992, for instance, the firm paid a fine of $1.66 million to settle accusations that it helped Charles H. Keating, Jr., deceive the federal government about the health of his failing S&L. Moreover, former Ernst & Young partner Jack D. Atchison's license was suspended for four years by the accounting board of Arizona. He was accused of helping persuade five U.S. senators to intervene with federal regulators on Keating's behalf. In connection with this settlement, Ernst & Young paid $63 million to settle charges of wrongdoing in the Keating affair. Ernst & Young did not admit guilt, however, and the claim was paid largely by insurance. In total, some $204 million in fines were paid in this civil suit. In another settlement, Ernst & Young paid $400 million to the federal government in compliance with a federal ruling against the company. To eliminate overlap created by the merger and to reduce its payroll expenses, the firm cut its staff in 1991 and eliminated many partner positions. Although revenues had fallen slightly in the late 1980s, by the early 1990s revenues were modestly but steadily rising. Ernst & Young's costly legal battles encouraged several changes in the mid-1990s. First, the firm hired a new general legal counsel, Kathryn Oberly, who reputedly made keeping costs down a higher priority than battling on principle. Second, the firm stepped up its expansion into consulting, an area much less fraught with legal responsibilities and their concomitant lawsuits than auditing. In addition to increasing its consulting in risk management, the company moved into information software products. Ernst & Young also entered new business areas in the mid-1990s by developing alliances and by acquiring smaller companies. In 1996 the firm forged an alliance with Tata Consulting, headquartered in India. The same year, its alliance with ISD/Shaw gave the firm an entree into banking industry consulting. The firm moved into the petroleum and petrochemical consulting business in 1996 when it purchased Wright Kellen & Co. Ernst & Young created a new subsidiary with the Houston-based company, which they named Ernst & Young Wright Killen. In 1997 Ernst & Young forged an agreement to merge with KPMG International, another Big Six accounting firm, but abandoned the merger plans in 1998. In 2002, Ernst & Young serviced a large chunk of the clients previously working with Arthur Andersen after their downfall in connection with the Enron scandal. In 2010, Ernst & Young acquired Terco, the Brazilian member firm of Grant Thornton. Ernst & Young announced that it had adopted EY as its global brand name on July 1, 2013. Also in 2013, the Pope of the Roman Catholic church hired EY to help review Vatican City State's finances and help "verify and consult" the institution's administration, including the museums, post office and tax-free department store.[30] EY expanded further and acquired all of KPMG Denmark's operations. In 2014, EY acquired global strategy consulting firm The Parthenon Group. In 2015, EY opened its first global Security Operations Centre in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala in India, and coincidentally invested $20 million over 5 years to combat the increasing threat of cybercrimes. EY is currently headquartered in New York City, NY.

Eastman Kodak Company

  • May 23, 1892 -

The Eastman Kodak Company (referred to simply as Kodak) is an American public company that produces various products related to its historic basis in analogue photography. George Eastman marketed the first commercial transparent roll film in 1889, and Kodak was founded by George Eastman and Henry A. Strong on May 23, 1892. During most of the 20th century, Kodak held a dominant position in photographic film. The company's ubiquity was such that its "Kodak moment" tagline entered the common lexicon to describe a personal event that deserved to be recorded for posterity. Kodak began to struggle financially in the late 1990s, as a result of the decline in sales of photographic film and its slowness in moving to digital photography, despite developing the first self-contained digital camera. As a part of a turnaround strategy, Kodak began to focus on digital photography and digital printing, and attempted to generate revenues through aggressive patent litigation. In January 2012, Kodak filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. Shortly thereafter, Kodak announced that it would stop making digital cameras, pocket video cameras, and digital picture frames and focus on the corporate digital imaging market. In August 2012, Kodak announced its intention to sell its photographic film, commercial scanners and kiosk operations, as a measure to emerge from bankruptcy, but not its motion picture film operations. In January 2013, the Court approved financing for Kodak to emerge from bankruptcy by mid 2013. Kodak sold many of its patents, and on September 3, 2013, the company emerged from bankruptcy having shed its large legacy liabilities and exited several businesses.
