Present - Advanced Media Group and Global Entertainment Group, Ltd., , President, Owner, and Founder.
Advanced Media Group and Stan J. Caterbone have been engaged in RECLAMATION; (assets; real estate; personal and business real property; intellectual property; and business interests) LITIGATION; and RESEARCH since 2005 in federal and state courts. All activities are for the purpose of restoring Advanced Media Group and all affiliated companies and Stan J. Caterbone to WHOLE.
Stan J. Caterbone was recently accepted into the Graduate Studies and Research Program at Millersville University in April of 2009 where a more formal research approach to mind control and MKULTRA programs will be studied. Other studies will be considered in the areas of law; finance; computer science; and philosophy.
Stan J. Caterbone and Advanced Media Group are not able to continue it's litigation until it's security needs are satisfied and it's computer/electronic property is returned and/or replaced.
In 2006 Stan J. Caterbone began his role as an Activist Shareholder for Fulton Financial, which is listed as "FULT" on the NASDAQ stock exchange. As a founder of Financial Management Group, Ltd., a full service financial firm, Stan J. Caterbone has drawn upon the success in developing the strategic vision for his company and the experience gained in directing the legal affairs and public offering efforts in dealing with Fulton Financial. Stan J. Caterbone has been in recent discussions with the Fulton Financial Board of Directors with regards to various complaints dealing with such issues as the Resource Bank acquisition and the subprime failures. Stan J. Caterbone believes that Fulton Financial needs management to become more aggressive in it's strategic planning and the performance it expects from it's management team in order to increase shareholder value. Expanding the footprint of the regional bank has not yielded an increase to the bottom line that is consistent with the expectations of shareholders. Lancaster County has seen several local banking institutions acquired by larger regional banks, thus increasing the competition Fulton Financial will see in it's local marketplace as well as in it's regional footprint.
In 2005 Stan J. Caterbone, as a Pro Se Litigant filed several civil actions as Plaintiffs that are in current litigation in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the United States Third District Court of Appeals, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, The Pennsylvania Superior Court, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, The Court of Common Pleas of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. These litigations include violations of intellectual property rights, anti-trust violations, and interference of contracts relating to several business interests. Central to this litigation is the Digital Movie, Digital Technologies, Financial Management Group, Ltd,/FMG Advisory, Ltd., and it’s affiliated businesses along with a Federal False Claims Act or Federal Whistleblowers Act regarding the firm of International Signal and Control, Plc., (ISC) the $1Billion Dollar Fraud and the Export violations of selling arms to South Africa and Iraq. This litigation dates back to 1987. Stan J. Caterbone was a shareholder of ISC, and was solicited by ISC executives for professional services. The Federal False Claims Act is currently part of RICO Civil Complaint in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, as docket no. 05-2288.
In 2005 Advanced Media Group/Project Hope filed a Civil Action in the Court of Common Pleas of Lancaster County against Drew Anthon and the Eden Resort Inn for their attempts to withhold the Tourism Tax and Hotel Tax that supports the Downtown Lancaster Convention Center & Marriot. We also proposed an alternative plan to move the Convention Center to the Hotel Brunswick and Lancaster Square to all of the major stakeholders. The Lancaster County Convention Center is finally under construction with a March 2009 Opening date.
In 2005 I began our philanthropic endeavors by spending our energies and working with such organizations as; ONE.org, Livestrong.org, WoundedWarriors.org, The Clinton Global Initiative, Lancaster Convention Center Authority, Lancaster Chamber of Commerce, Tom’s Project Hope, People to People International, GlobalWarming.org, Contact Lancaster/24 Hour Suicide Hotline, Schreiber Pediatric Center, and numerous others.
In 2004 I embarked on our past endeavors in the music and entertainment industries with an emphasis on assisting for the fair and equitable distribution of artists rights and royalties in the fight against electronic piracy. We have attempted to assist in developing new business models to address the convergence of physical and electronic mediums; as it displaces royalties and revenues for those creating, promoting, and delivering a range of entertainment content via wireless networks.
In 2000 to 2002 I developed an array of marketing and communication tools for wholesalers of the AIM Investment Group and managed several communication programs for several of the company wholesalers throughout the United States and Costa Rica. We also began a Day Trading project that lasted until 2004 with success.
In 1999 I developed a comprehensive business plan to develop the former Sprecher Brewery, known as the Excelsior Building on E. King Street, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This plan was developed in conjunction with the Comprehensive Economic Development Plan for the Revitalization of Downtown Lancaster and the Downtown Lancaster Convention Center for the former Watt & Shand building.
In 1999 I contributed to the debate, research, and implementation of strategies to counter the effects of the global Y2K threat to the worlds computer technologies. I attended the U.S. Sponsored Y2K symposium and Conference in Washington, D.C. hosted by the Senate Y2K Subcommittee and Senator William Bennett.
In 1998 I had began to administer the charity giving of Tom’s Project Hope, a non-profit organization promoting education and awareness for mental illness and suicide prevention. We had provided funding for the Mental Health Alliance of Lancaster County, Contact Lancaster (The 24/7 Suicide Prevention Hotline), The Schreiber Pediatric Center, and other charitable organizations and faith based charities. The video "Numbers Don't Lie" have been distributed to schools, non profit organizations, faith based initiatives, and municipalities to provide educational support for the prevention of suicide and to bring awareness to mental illness problems.
In 1996 I had done consulting for companies under KAL, Inc., during the time that I was controller of Pflumm Contractors, Inc., I was retained by Gallo Rosso Restaurant and Bar to computerized their accounting and records management from top to bottom. I had also provided consulting for the computerization of accounting and payroll for Lancaster Container, Inc., of Washington Boro. I was retained to evaluate and develop an action plan to migrate the Informations Technologies of the Jay Group, formally of Ronks, PA, now relocated to a new $26 Million Dollar headquarters located in West Hempfield Township of Lancaster County. The Jay Group had been using IBM mainframe technologies hosted by the AS 400 computer and server. I was consulting on the merits of migrating to a PC based real time networking system throughout the entire organization. Currently the Jay Group employees some 500 employees with revenues in excess of $50 Million Dollars per year.
In 1993 I was retained by Pflumm Contractors, Inc., as controller, and was responsible for saving the company from a potential bankruptcy. At that time, due to several unpaid contracts, the company was facing extreme pressure from lenders and the bonding insurance company. We were responsible for implementing computerized accounting, accounting and contract policies and procedures, human resource policies and procedures, marketing strategies, performance measurement reporting, and negotiate for the payment of unpaid contracts. The bonding company was especially problematic, since it was the lifeline to continue work and bidding for public contracts. The Bank of Lancaster County demanded a complete accounting of the operations in order to stave off a default on the notes and loans it was holding. We essentially revamped the entire operation. Within 3 years, the company realized an increase in profits of 3 to 4 times its previous years, and record revenues.
In 1991 I was elected to People to People International and the Citizen Ambassador Program, which was founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956. The program was founded to “To give specialists from throughout the world greater opportunities to work together and effectively communicate with peers, The Citizen Ambassador program administers face-to-face scientific, technical, and professional exchanges throughout the world. In 1961, under President John F. Kennedy, the State Department established a non-profit private foundation to administer the program. We were scheduled to tour the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe to discuss printing and publishing technologies with scientists and technicians around the world.
In 1990 I had worked on developing voice recognition systems for the government’s technology think tank - NIST (National Institute for Standards & Technology). I co-authored the article “Escaping the Unix Tar Pit” with a scientist from NIST that was published in the magazine “DISC”, then one of the leading publications for the CD-ROM industry. Today, most all call centers deploy that technology whenever you call an 800 number, and voice recognition is prevalent in all types of applications involving telecommunications.
In 1989 I had founded Advanced Media Group, Ltd., and was one of only 5 or 6 U.S. domestic companies that had the capability to manufacture CD-ROM's. We did business with commercial companies, government agencies, educational institutions, and foreign companies. I performed services and contracts for the Department of Defense, NASA, National Institution of Standards & Technology (NIST), Department of Defense, The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the Defense Mapping Agency, Central Intelligence Agency, (CIA), IBM, Microsoft, AMP, Commodore Computers, American Bankers Bond Buyers, and a host of others. I also was working with R.R, Donnelly's Geo Systems, which was developing various interactive mapping technologies, which is now a major asset of Map Quest. Map Quest is the premier provider of mapping software and applications for the internet and is often used in delivering maps and directions for Fortune 500 companies. We had arranged for High Industries to sell American Helix, the manufacturer of compact discs, to R.R. Donnelly. We had brokered a deal and the executives from Donnelly’s Chicago headquarters flew to Lancaster to discuss the deal and perform due diligence of the manufacturing facility located in the Greenfield Industrial Park.
In 1987 Power Station Studios of New York retained me as executive producer of a motion picture project. The theatrical and video release was to be delivered in a digital format; the first of it’s kind. We had originated the marketing for the technology, and created the concept for the Power Station Digital Movie System (PSDMS), which would follow the copyright and marketing formula of the DOLBY technology trademark. We had also created and developed marketing and patent research for the development and commercialization of equipment that we intended to manufacture and market to the recording industry featuring the digital technology. Sidel, Gonda, Goldhammer, and Abbot, P.C. of Philadelphia was the lead patent law firm that We had retained for the project. Power Station Studios was the brainchild of Tony Bongiovi, a leading engineering genius discovered by Motown when he was 15. Tony and Power Station Studios was one of the leading recording studios in the country, and were responsible for developing Bon Jovi, a cousin. Power Station Studios clients included; Bruce Springsteen, Diana Ross, Cyndi Lauper, Talking Heads, Madonna, The Ramones, Steve Winwood, and many others. Tony and Power Station Studios had produced the original Sound Track for the original “Star Wars” motion picture. It was released for distribution and was the number one Sound Track recording of its time. Tony Bongiovi was also active in working and researching different aerospace technologies. * We had developed and authored a Joint Venture Proposal for SONY to partner with us in delivering the Digital Movie and it’s related technologies to the marketplace. The venture was to include the commercialization of technologies, which Tony Bongiovi had developed for the recording industry simultaneously with the release of the Digital Movie. I also created the concept for the PSDMS trademark, which was to be the Trademark logo for the technology, similar to the DOLBY sound system’s trademark. The acronym’s stand for the Power Station Digital Movie System. Today, DVD is the mainstay for delivering digital movies on a portable medium, a compact disc.
In 1987 I had a created and developed FMG Mortgage Banking, a company that was funded by a major banking firm in Houston Texas. We had the capability to finance projects from $3 to $100 million dollars. Our terms and rates were so attractive that we had quickly received solicitations from developers across the country. We were also very attractive to companies that wanted to raise capital that include both debt and equity. Through my company, FMG, we could raise equity funding through private placements, and debt funding through FMG Mortgage Banking. We were retained by Gamillion Studios of Hollywood, California to secure financing of their postproduction Film Studio that was looking to relocate to North Carolina. We had secured refinancing packages for Norris Boyd of and the Olde Hickory and were in the midst of replacing the current loan that was with Commonwealth National Bank. We had meetings and discussions with Drew Anton of the Eden Resort, for refinancing a portion of his debt portfolio. We were quickly seeking commitments for real estate deals from New York to California. We also had a number of other prominent local developers seeking our competitive funding, including Owen Kugal, High Industries, and the Marty Sponougle a partner of The Fisher Group (owner of the Rt. 30 Outlets). We were constantly told that our financing packages were more completive than local institutions.
In 1986 I had founded Financial Management Group, Ltd (FMG); a large financial services organization comprised of a variety of professionals operating in one location. We had developed a stock purchase program for where everyone had the opportunity for equity ownership in the new firm. FMG had financial planners, investment managers, accountants, attorneys, realtors, liability insurance services, tax preparers, and estate planners operating out of our corporate headquarters in Lancaster. In one year, we had 24 people on staff, had approximately 12 offices in Pennsylvania, and several satellite offices in other states. We had in excess of $50 million under management, and our advisors were generating almost $4 million of commissions, which did not include the fees from the other professionals. We had acquired our own Broker Dealer firm and were valued at about $3 to $4 million.
In 1985 I developed the Easter Regional Free Agent Camp, the first Free Agent Camp for the Professional Football industry; which was videotaped for distribution to the teams scouting departments. (See Washington Post ¾ page article of March 24, 1985) Current camps were dependant on the team scouts to travel from state to state looking for recruits. We had developed a strategy of video taping the camp and the distributing a copy, free of charge to the teams, to all of the scouting departments for teams in all three leagues FL, CFL and WFL. My brother was signed at that camp by the Ottawa Roughriders of the CFL, and went on to be a leading receiver while J.C. Watts was one of the leagues most prominent quarterbacks. My brother also played 2 years with the Miami Dolphins while Dan Marino was starting quarterback. We were a Certified Agent for the National Football League Players Association. Gene Upshaw, the President of the NFLPA had given me some helpful hints for my camp, while we were at a Conference for agents of the NFL. The Washington Post wrote a full-page article about our camp and associated it with other camps that were questionable about their practices. Actually, that was the very reason for our camp. We had attended many other camps around the country that were not very well organized and attracted few if any scouts. We had about 60 participants, with one player coming from as far away as Hawaii. We held the camp at Lancaster Catholic, with a professional production company filming the entire camp, while I did the editing and produced the video. The well respected and widely acclaimed professional football scout, Gil Brandt, of the Dallas Cowboys, had given me support for my camp during some conversations We had with him and said he looked forward to reviewing the tapes for any hopeful recruits.
In 1985 I was elected Vice President of the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the International Association of Financial Planners, and helped build that chapter by increasing membership 3to 4 times. We had personally retained the nationally acclaimed and nationally syndicated Financial Planner, Ms. Alexandria Armstrong of Washington D.C.; to host a major fundraiser. More than 150 professionals attended the dinner event that was held at the Eden Resort & Conference Center. Ms. Armstrong discussed financial planning and how all of the professions needed to work together in order to be most effective for their clients. We attracted a wide variety of professionals including; brokers, lawyers, accountants, realtors, tax specialists, estate planners, bankers, and investment advisors. Today, it has become evident that financial planning was the way of the future. In 1986 executives approached us from Blue Ball National Bank to help them develop a Financial Planning department within their bank.
In 1984 I had helped to develop strategic planning for Sandy Weill, former President of Citi Group (the largest banking entity in the U.S). We were one of several associates asked to help advise on the future of Financial Planning and how it would impact the brokerage and the investment industry at large. Mr. Weil was performing due diligence for the merger of American Express and IDS (Investors Diversified Services). We were at that time a national leader in the company in delivering Fee Based Financial Planning Services, which was a new concept in the investment community and mainstream investors. That concept is now widely held by most investment advisors.
