I'm REALLY (with a bag of eye rolls...) curious as to what the desired pedigree would be a good CEO. One of the things holding this industry back is the echo chamber of the old boy's club who "just want everything to go back to the way it used to be..." and A LOT of washed up musicians who ended up working industry-side (often without much practical experience). There's an incredible amount of ignorance present in this thread and a general lack of understanding for brands in this industry, not to mention the structure of companies in general.
Please raise your hand if you think having a CEO who was successful in senior leadership roles at global brands like those mentioned above is a bad idea. Next, where would you prefer that they worked instead?
Profit, profit, profit, that's all that matters..........
