Peter England may have retired as Elizabeth Arden’s president and chief executive officer in 2000, but kicking back and playing golf all day simply isn’t in his DNA. Not that he didn’t try it: “I retired at 56, moved to Australia with my wife, Carol, and my son and immediately knew it was a mistake,” he says.
England’s two daughters were already living with their families in Chicago, so he and his wife headed to the Windy City, where England became director of the Chicago Children’s Museum in spring 2001. “I looked in the mirror and told myself I was stupid, but stayed there for seven years,” he says with a laugh.
