NEW YORK — Craig Leavitt, who this month becomes chief executive officer of the newly named Kate Spade & Co., is ready to lead the lifestyle accessories and fashion brand to its $4 billion future.
“There’s so much opportunity out there for Kate Spade as we move forward. We’re really just scratching the surface of most areas of our business,” said Leavitt, 53, in an exclusive interview. Leavitt had been ceo of Kate Spade under the Fifth & Pacific Cos. umbrella since 2010 after joining Spade in 2008 as copresident and chief operating officer.

"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.
