President Barack Obama announced the appointment of Matthew Rubel, former president and CEO of Collective Brands, to an additional term on the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations, a key Administration advisory post.
Dansko today announced that co-founder and CEO, Mandy Cabot, was one of 15 small business owners to meet with Presdent Obama at the White House on Tuesday, Nov. 27, to discuss the potential impact of upcoming tax and economic policy changes on small businesses.
“It was the opportunity of a lifetime,” Cabot says. “President Obama was engaging and appeared genuinely interested in the stories of the business owners at the table.”
While sightseeing at the Grand Canyon earlier this summer was surely a grand experience for President Barack Obama and his family, it was equally grand for Keen Footwear. The Portland, OR-based company’s Venice H2 sport sandals were the rugged, warm-weather footwear of choice for Obama’s daughters, Malia and Sasha. And at a suggested retail price of $49.95, the sandals’ on-land and in-water versatility surely delivered a bang for the buck.
