One of the things that impressed me most about our COUTURE Director, Gannon Brousseau, when he came on board 5 years ago, was how he spent most of his time listening. He was thoughtful, inquisitive, genuinely interested; he did his due diligence in gathering as much intel about our amazing industry as he could. He then went on to ensure that he personally connected with every single one of our designers, traveling the globe, literally, to meet with people, learn about their businesses and their design processes and hearing their personal stories. He extended this courtesy not just to our designers and brands, but also to our retail community, and even our editors. So while he’s had many milestones since he came on board–he got married, had an adorable little baby boy, got a big promotion–perhaps his greatest achievement is how many deep, meaningful relationships he’s developed over the years. And while none of the team usually experiences that same undivided attention–he’s an avid multi-tasker when he’s around us–we all know he cares as much about us as he does the rest of his COUTURE family.
