The Incredible Journey of Larry Miller
AMBASSADOR DIGITAL MAGAZINE Editor- In-Chief Musa Jackson has an in-depth conversation with the Chairman of the Jordan brand, Larry Miller. A West Philly native who went from streets gangs, to multiple incarcerations to become one of the most highly regarded leaders in corporate America.
He was the former President of the Portland Trailblazers and is the current Chairman of Nike Jordan brand. He helped take the company from a 140 million dollar brand to a 5 billion juggernaut. He is also the co-author with his daughter Laila Lacey of his inspirational autobiography JUMP: My Secret Journey From the Streets To the Boardroom. You will be absolutely inspired.
"...the goal was really to create a brand that embodied qualities that Michael Jordan brought to the game. Hard work, dedication, pursuit of excellence."
"I was the smartest kid in the class. The teacher’s pet. I was that kid. I come from a strong large family."
I think our secret sauce as to why the Jordan brand has been successful and all we’ve been able to accomplish is because of MJ’s involvement. He pushed us to be excellent just like he pushed his team on the basketball court.
