Imagine that. All of your hard work, strategic thinking and resulting accomplishments make the world stand up and take notice.

Explaining how Peter Nygard has managed to achieve such success may take a while. Nevertheless, we’ll endeavour to do just that in this series.

It involves a complex web of who Nygard is as an individual, as a leader, and as an entrepreneur. These aspects to him were influenced by his upbringing from parents with strong values, the cultural practices from his birth country and the development of his character as a result of his early experiences.

This complex web had such a major impact on his ability to succeed that the resulting ‘whole is far greater than the sum of its parts’.

The rarely seen combination of traits and values and perspective that Peter Nygard brings to the table has produced a unique series of successes with international implications.

• Successful trade relationships around the globe that laid a strong foundation for his business. His exponential business growth led to him becoming a respected industry leader early on and sought after to head apparel associations as well as to become an advisor to the Canadian government on trade and the setup of the original free trade agreement.

• Creative genius with all of his products. No matter the fashion, no matter the trend, Nygard insists on being the best and setting the bench mark. When the fashion was all about silk,Nygard was a leader. He had developed a secret silk formula and had an exclusive silk line in 48 Saks Fifth Avenue stores. Now, he has a patented revolutionary slimming pant and jeansthat NYGARD can’t keep on the shelves.
