Harry Rosen’s Retail Evolution: Mission Critical Live with President Ian Rosen

Bay Street Bull’s Editor in Chief Lance Chung sat down with Ian Rosen, President and COO of Harry Rosen for Mission Critical live. The podcast’s second live recorded episode took place at Toronto’s CLIO Social Club and was presented by Nature’s Bounty Melatonin Gummies. The event saw a crowd of entrepreneurs, c-suite executives, and creative leaders who were greeted with welcome glasses of prosecco and charcuterie boards during the networking portion of the event. During the main portion of the evening, Rosen—who currently leads the menswear retailer founded by his grandfather in 1954—spoke about menswear’s fashion evolution, modernizing retail while maintaining Harry Rosen’s luxury experience, and supporting Canadian brands. On a more personal note, Rosen also discussed the complexities of working with family and his personal journey from working on the sales floor to leading the company today.
