Happy Friday! Today I’m putting my interview skills to the test as I spotlight YMI Jeans Founder and President, David Vered. I was especially excited to meet with David because he is not your typical company Founder. His passion for denim lead him to found YMI 14 years ago with a vision that has now turned what was once a small dream into a mega-successful denim manufacturing company.
As many of you know, I recently announced my blogger in residency with YMI last month and as a part of the learning experience, I have been granted the unique opportunity to go ‘behind the seams’ of a denim manufacturing company to learn how it operates. I had a few ‘fan-girl’ moments during this interview to myself thinking back to the year 2000 when I bought my first pair of YMI Jeans (I basically grew up on YMI!). Flash forward 14 years later, and now here I am sitting in the President’s office picking his brain about the company. Such a cool little moment. 😀
I hope you guys will take the time to watch this interview! I had such a blast hanging out in Mr. Vered’s office and discussing the success of YMI with him! NOTE: Pay attention to what Mr.Vered has to say in the video – I may quiz you for a chance to win some really cool YMI gear. 😉
I hope you guys enjoyed this video! Stay tuned for my next one featuring a little holiday DIY! 😉
Have a great weekend!
