Hook + Albert, a men’s accessories brand, has tapped former Avon executive Donna Ballin to serve as design director.
Ballin, who served most recently as associate design manager of jewelry and watches for the North America Fashion & Home division of Avon Products Inc., was brought on board by founders Adam Schoenberg and Cory Rosenberg to help “guide the vision and lead the creative process” for the company. The plan is to expand to hardlines such as cuff links and Ballin’s jewelry experience will help toward that end.

"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.
