Friday Flashback: Andrea Jung, Before Avon Was A Mess
3:45 pm, December 23rd | by Hillary Reinsberg
We enjoy following the current lives of powerful women. But sometimes it’s fun to look back and remember how those women ended up where they are today. Each Friday, we’ll dig up a vintage video starring your favorite leading ladies in their early days.
Today: looking back at an interesting interview with Andrea Jung.
The media’s focused quite a bit this week on Andrea Jung, the chairman and former CEO of Avon. As the company — with Jung’s controversial help — seeks out a new CEO, it makes sense to look back on Jung’s 12-year tenure as CEO.
It’s not exactly decades old, but we thought we’d look back today at Jung’s 2008 interview with Charlie Rose, in which she talks very candidly about the successes and failures she’d faced up to that point. It was, to put it mildly, a happier time.
