 William Shatner

In the 20th Century William Shatner took us on a voyage into the universe to experience what life is like on other planets. Now in the 21st Century he is back here on our own planet to experience with us new technologies & new ways of life that are taking place on earth -- & these are for real.  It’s all part of a new series called ‘Keeping America Strong.’  Doug’s interview highlighted Peter Nygård – a man, a company & a story that truly is what ‘Keeping America Strong’ is all about - covering Nygård’s ‘Rags-to-Riches’ story ...

Peter J. Nygård Chairman of Nygård (International); the classic success story - the Finnish immigrants' son, who stitched up an empire out of women's clothing & is the quintessential self-made man. Nygård is a hard driven, demanding & subjective man who has created a standard of excellence for North America’s ladies fashion industry & whose signature is recognized in fashion centers globally. This all began in 1967, when Nygård gathered his life savings & borrowed capital to purchase 20% of a ladies garment manufacturer, which within a few years he owned outright.

The speed with which he claimed his #1 position in the industry is attributed to the uniqueness of his business decisions & his relentless work ethic.  Today he controls a women's ready-to-wear business with annual sales in excess of $500M - almost 50% of which stems from the US market.
