In his interview with Jason Wachob, founder and CEO of mindbodygreen, Lew Frankfort, chairman and former CEO of Coach Inc., shares the nine qualities he looks for when he's hiring a team. Curiosity is one of them—tune in to hear the other eight. Ultimately, he says you need to have integrated people who are prepared to go on a journey with you. We couldn't agree more.
A native New Yorker, Lew established himself as a leader at Coach Inc., where he worked for more than 30 years, taking the brand from $5 million in sales to more than $6 billion. He's learned a lot about what makes a brand successful and believes that hiring the right crew is essential. Since leaving Coach, he's created Benvolio Group LLC for venture investing, has joined the board at WeWork, and has become a chairman of Flywheel, and an investor and partner in mindbodygreen.
