As co-founder and President of Highland Capital Management, James Dondero has been a staple in the investment scene in Dallas for years. He has years of experience with a focus on High-Yield Stressed investing. Beginning in 1984 as an analyst in the Morgan Guaranty training program, the climb in rank soon took place thereafter. With a thirst for knowledge and a general drive in terms of finance goals, there was almost a guarantee that he wouldn’t stop there.
Fast forward 28 years and you have the announcement of the $1 million dollar challenge. What the challenge is basically geared towards is in so many words, the betterment of the quality of life in Dallas. The funds go directly toward building shelter for those in need as well as a Central Dallas Counseling Center for those who have suffered from family violence. That building in itself will serve over 2,000 people in the Dallas area. Read more about James Dondero at Daily Forex Report.

All in all James Dondero has been literally a busy man. The rise from being an analyst to the co-founder and President of a multi billion dollar company says a lot. What says even more is the same co-founder and President of said billion dollar company still remembers those less fortunate. The many people he has helped throughout the Dallas Metro Area will remember him not for his business advisory skills, or importance to these companies, but for the return and especially the $1 million dollar challenge.
