“Was looking for clues to the pre and post-NIR business ventures of Eric Noveshen and Art Robins. public financial statements, business documents
and many many many lawsuits provide a ton of information. This may not be the tip of the iceberg..seems the web of deception began at the same time Noveshen’s windfall of money from NIR began to come in. There is a pattern of hiding assets and hiding businesses.Here is SOME of what court documents show:
Ralph Desiano Plaintiff vs. Envision Foods Inc Defendant (Broward County Case Number: CACE08033630)
Envision Foods Corp Plaintiff vs. Cosi Inc Defendant (Broward county case # CACE10038086)
Eric Noveshen in 2006 buys the rights to open Cosi restaurants in South Florida for somewhere in the neighborhood of $500,000. He was probably flush with cash from NIR deals. Noveshen hires Ralph Desiano a restaurateur with a solid record of turning an profit to run his Cosi sandwich places. Part of the deal, according to court papers filed later in 2008 by Desiano when he was not paid his salary, is that ‘Envision Foods’ was to be incorporated in Desiano’s name. Seems Noveshen did not want the business registered in his name – which will later lead into possibly how Arthur Robins became involved in Eric Noveshen’s other food/bar type of business HR Ventures.
Envision Foods Registered in 2006 with Eric Noveshen listed as the CEO/Registered Agent at 401 E Last Olas Blvd. 14th Floor
April 2008 the registered agent of Envision Foods changes to Ralph Desiano @ 401 E Las Olas Blvd 14th Fl.
Another RED FLAG- June 29, 2007 Envision Foods Inc (Eric Noveshen) becomes amanaging director of another Envision company – Envision Cobblestone LLC and the registered agent is – Christina Kitterman!! the attorney from Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein’s law office who is serving five years in federal prison for impersonating a Florida Bar official in a hoax that helped Scott Rothstein keep his massive investment fraud alive.
Envision Cobblestone, Envision Foods and Envision Capital are all listed at 401 E Las Olas Blvd. 14th Floor.
Envision Cobblestone, Envision Foods and Envision Capital have two other business addresses where HR Ventures is publicly associated with… a PO box in Fort Lauderdale, FL and an address on a 10th Ave. in Ft Lauderdale – the listed owner is a Cheryl Wilson. Yes Noveshen’s Mother, the woman identified by Allen Licht’s (Simulated Environment Concepts, Inc. (SMEV.PK)) now infamous lawsuit. Licht alleges Noveshen encouraged the company to hire his mother Cheryl Wilson as the accountant and she was put in place more to report to Noveshen and Ajene Watson than to handle the books legally. Licht spells her name wrong, not sure if he may have intensionally been given her wrong name or his misspellings resulted in this lawsuits demise.
Noveshen is also connected to his Mother in several contract indebtedness and foreclosure lawsuits….
American Express Centurion Plaintiff vs. Cheryl Wilson, et al Defendant (Eric Noveshen is Defendant) Broward County Case Number: CACE08025623
Nationstar Mtg LLC Plaintiff vs. Cheryl Wilson, et al Defendant (Eric Noveshen Defendant, pro se retained) Broward County Case CACE13000366
Stay with me folks, fast forward to 2008 – Noveshen/Envision Foods never open Cosi after leasing several locations. Ralph Desiano files suit against Envision Foods with several allegations including a mentions of questionable business activity by Envision Foods attorney of record lawyer Christina Kitterman and personal activity by Christina Kitterman – she apparently submitted a false declaration in Noveshen’s divorce case not even related to his presumed fabulous income. The world now knows how truthful Kitterman was. Lawsuit notes a patterns of professional dishonesty and patterns of Noveshen of hiding business in other peoples names to avoid detection.
Getting to HR Ventures… (there were several other lawsuits as a result of the fallout from the Envision Foods Cosi deal all – handled by – Eric Noveshen)
KRG Pembroke Pines, LLC vs. Eric Noveshen – Broward Case decided against Noveshen and he appealed the decision against him to the Florida District Appeals Court.
from http://www.4dca.org —- 4D11-3412-Eric L. Noveshen v. KRG CREC/KS Pembroke Pines, LLC
Here is Where HR Ventures comes in….Eric Noveshen goes into business with another one of Christina Kitterman’s clients, Andy Kostas and his company Automatic Slims Holdings. Social media and stories of another fallen Florida financial industry member – Jeffry Rubin – show that Automatic Slims circa 2006-2008 was the place to be, the place to party and the place to bring unassuming investors to lure them into making bad decisions.
Andy Kostas lures Noveshen into a deal for a Envision to loan money to Andy Kostas to open a third Automatic Slims at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. It is not known why but Andy Kostas drops off the map in 2009 when “HR Ventures” becomes the new registered Owner Agent that operates Automatic Slims located at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
The registered owner of HR Ventures is Arthur Robbins @ 5749 Seminole Way Building 6,8. Around 2010 HR Ventures enters into a mortgage agreement with Med Properties VII, LLC a Miami company for a payment of $115,000. The secured property being a Quota Alcohol Beverage License.
They must have used up all of this money because a year later in 2011 a “Removal of Tenant” lawsuit was filed against HR Ventures. Roadhouse LLC vs. HR Ventures broward case
A settlement was reached and signed by Eric Noveshen and his counsel Jon Polenberg – the same attorney that represented Envision Foods in Envision Foods vs Cosi (Broward county case # CACE10038086)
Ralph Desiano finally got a judgement against Envision Foods in January 2013 for $145,602 for his back salary and arbitration fees. Who knows if the poor guy ever collected. Other’s who invested work and money into Eric Noveshen or Envision Capital HR Ventures of the rest good luck seeing a return on your investment.
It appears every legal action and applications that are done for HR Ventures are handled by Noveshen and that Arthur Robins might be more of a silent partner or just a name for Noveshen to hide behind like Ralph Desiano was for Envision Foods and Christina Kitterman was for Envision Cobblestone LLC. What is Eric Noveshen hiding from??”
