Ari Meisel

Achievement Architect

In 2006, Ari Meisel was diagnosed with Crohn's disease an incurable inflammatory disease of the digestive tract. Ari’s case was severe, and required over a dozen daily medications and several hospital visits. After reaching a personal low point in the hospital, Ari decided he would do everything in his power to strengthen his by then weakened body. Through a combination of yoga, nutrition, natural supplements and rigorous exercise (Ironman and Crossfit) he was able to fight back the symptoms of Crohn's until he was finally able to suspend his medication. Eventually Ari was declared free of all traces of the 'incurable' disease, and competed in Ironman France in June of 2011.

Ari has since spoken at seminars and at a regional TED Talk about his struggle against a seemingly insurmountable opponent. Through the process of data collection, self-tracking, and analysis, Ari helped develop Less Doing. This was a way of dealing with the daily stresses of life by optimizing, automating, and outsourcing all of his tasks in life and business.

Henry McGovern

Leading Entrepreneur

Henry McGovern has earned his reputation as one of the leading entrepreneurs and most successful businessmen operating in Central and Eastern Europe and globally. In 2008 Forbes named Henry one of the Top 5 business people of Poland.

Born in 1966, Henry showed interest in international markets and being an entrepreneur early on. Living in Germany with his parents for three years (1970-73) influenced Henry’s decision to return to Europe latter on in his life. For the first time he came back for schooling at Cloister Ettal in Germany. Back in the US again in 1979, at the age of just 13, he had his first opportunity to run a business - a tennis store in Westhampton NY. Seven successful years with Kimberly’s Tennis Shoppe, let Henry develop his retail and entrepreneurial skills.

Henry started his next business in 1989, while attending Georgetown University. Metropolitan Properties LTD, a residential real estate development company, focused on the Georgetown area restoration of old homes. A year later Student Housing Association Inc. was founded to fill a niche that Henry had spotted in off campus housing needs for DC area Universities. Within three years SHA had become the largest provider of off-campus housing.

Deciding that business was a better direction than his current pre-med major, Henry left Georgetown for a year at London School of Economics where he met his future partner Donald Kendall Jr. After two years back in DC, curiosity for what the fall of the Iron Curtain would mean, became an irresistible pull. Selling 50% of his DC real estate companies provided seed money for seeing what could be done in Central Europe. In May 1993 Henry moved to Poland and founded American Retail Systems along with his partner Donald Kendall Jr. The company opened its first restaurant, Pizza Hut on Wroclaw’s Market Square, still in 1993. ARS changed its name to AmRest in 1999 and has grown from one restaurant to be the region’s leading restaurant company.

Today AmRest Holdings S.E. is the largest independent restaurant company in Central and Eastern Europe. AmRest is an operator of quick service and casual dining concepts, including such world class brands as KFC, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Starbucks, La Tagliatella, Blue Frog and Kabb across 12 countries (Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Russia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Spain, France, Germany, China and USA). The company’s hallmark is its unique high energy culture, built around the belief that “Wszystko Jest Możliwe!”. Since 2005 AmRest is a public company traded on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (trade symbol EAT).

Henry McGovern is a father of three boys and a daughter and lives with his family in Wroclaw, Poland. He maintains his interest in real estate through Metropolitan Properties International. Mr. McGovern is also an active member of “Young Presidents Organization”.
