What makes a great team? Queensboro.com, a custom logo apparel and promotional products company based in Wilmington, NC, has spent 35 years answering that question – using the work of Peter Drucker, Warren Buffet, Daniel Kahneman, Amos Tversky, Charles Druhigg, and Sam Walker. Hear what they’ve learned about successful teamwork for their 150 employees.
Fred Meyers is President of Queensboro Shirt Company. He grew up in Connecticut and went to school in New York City. While an undergraduate in the late 1970s, the Lacoste alligator shirt experienced sudden and wild popularity, and Fred had an idea. He thought, wouldn’t it be great if you could get that same great quality shirt with anything you wanted on it? In 1982, Fred ran his first mail-order ad in the back of The New Yorker magazine and invented the custom logo apparel business in the process. He’s been working diligently in it ever since.
