Rock n’ roll CEO Barrie Bergman
Author of Nice Guys Finish First
“Whoever said that nice guys finish last was just an asshole trying to justify his existence.” We exist in a world today that condones bad behavior. Executives are cooking the books, managing through intimidation, creating organizational inertia, and causing chaos in their wake. For what? For greed, for power – you name it. But it just doesn’t have to be that way.
Barrie Bergman grew a record business from a single store in a North Carolina tobacco town to a national chain of 180 stores. Shortly after selling The Record Bar, he and a partner purchased bankrupt Bare Escentuals and grew it to an enterprise that was recapitalized in 2004 for over 200 million dollars. Now he’s out to show you a way of doing business that gets results and allows you to sleep at night.
“Barrie Bergman's message is truly unique and is important for serious business people to hear. His leadership and business judgment made the difference in my own life, and probably in many lives over the years. It’s hard to think of a better partner for me, or for anyone who wants to win in business and in life.”
