Top national publication The Business Journals again turned to Evan Nierman, Red Banyan Group’s Founder and Principal for his expert analysis on corporate leadership and communications strategy. In a series of excellent pieces by Hilary Burns, Nierman helps examine the leadership change at American Apparel.


In the first article, Nierman discusses the importance of having a woman at the helm of a company that has been criticized for objectifying women. A second piece outlines Nierman’s advice for the company’s new CEO, Paula Schneider, as she works to establish her own leadership identity at the company. Finally, Nierman provided insight into why some company executives voiced concerns about the removal of former American Apparel CEO Dov Charney.
