Love, respect and integrity: those are the three principles upon which Aldo Bensadoun (BCom’64) says he has built his global shoe business, now worth $1.8 billion in retail sales annually.
Given his charitable work, ready smile and the respect with which his thousands of employees refer to him as Mr. B., there may be something to it.
… The shoe business runs in the family. Bensadoun’s grandfather was a cobbler in Algeria, and his father had stores in Morocco. He grew up in Morocco and France before heading to the U.S. and then to McGill for his university education.
