Come join us to meet the amazing Mike Lohner at our May Richmond area meeting! We will have a Meet Stella and Dot at 6:30 (for all potential stylists), followed by a team meeting from 7-8:30. Five minutes in a room with Mike, and you will feel like you can conquer the world! He is one of the most charismatic and inspiring people I have met through Stella and Dot, and we are thrilled that he is traveling to Virginia for the first time!
As Chairman of the Board of Directors, Mike Lohner has been a part of the Stella & Dot family since early 2007. Mike knows a thing or two about turning passion into business. In fact, Mike recently relocated to London to head up Stella & Dot's expansion into Europe, launching the brand in the UK in Fall 2011 with plans to enter Germany for Spring 2012. Prior to Stella & Dot, Mike was CEO of the party planning company Home Interiors and Gifts, where he led the venture responsible for bringing the joy of design to the masses to a billion dollar a year business. While on the board of directors of the Direct Selling Association he helped transform the industry and brings his wealth of social selling knowledge to Stella & Dot. An avid golfer with a coveted +2 handicap, he parlayed his love of golf into a golf course development and management company with 50 courses under his guardianship. A family man through and through, Mike and his family are currently enjoying life "over the pond." Mike is married to his best friend and shares his strong family values and love for singing and playing saxophone with his four kids. Mike holds an MBA from Stanford and lives by the motto "you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough." We think Mike's acing it this time around.
