Tom Kartsotis founded FOSSIL in 1984, where he served as Chairman through 2010. In 2011 he founded Detroit-based manufacturer Shinola.

 

Tom will share the evolution of Shinola and how the brand was revitalized around one goal: to create meaningful American jobs while remaining committed to making quality, lasting things, including world-class watches, beautiful leather goods, high-integrity audio, thoughtful gifts, and a world-class hotel.

 

This is a rare opportunity to hear someone media have called a master brander about what Adweek deemed “the coolest brand in America.” The Washington Post called Shinola an “innovative giant” in “understanding the consumer zeitgeist,” and The New York Times says the brand has “scored a hipster hat trick, unveiling a brand that married ‘Americana,’ ‘locavore’ and ‘small batch’ at the height of the artisanal era”. After buying more than a dozen Shinola watches, Bill Clinton said, “We need more American success stories like Shinola in Detroit.” Tom has also served on the Board of Directors of Burton Snowboards since 2004.
