Consultant, Los Angeles, CA Jan 28 2015

I’ve worked with Dov Charney for the past 14 years, on and off on many different projects. Charney’s fanatical demands for equal and fair treatment of employees, endless creativity for new product, and marketing, his progressive (some said impossible) labor ideas, visionary leadership, tireless work ethic, and his willingness to be involved at every level of the organization are the driving forces that combined to grow American Apparel. Without those forces, one questions if the AA brand just melds into the landscape of hundreds of other companies who’s singular message is corporate profit.
