NEW YORK — When Richard Dickson started at Jones Apparel Group Inc. as president and chief executive officer of branded businesses last February, he found what he called “a rich portfolio of brands” with plenty of opportunities.
Dickson’s newly created role as the shepherd of Jones’ brands — which include Jones New York, Nine West, Anne Klein and more recent additions like Stuart Weitzman, Robert Rodriguez and Rachel Roy — allows him to focus the divisions with a more structured form of brand management.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
