Avon on Apple’s Board.

“Appearances matter.” Of course they do! That’s not all that matters though: Since 1999 Avon’s been tearing it up under the leadership of Andrea Jung (Avon’s first female chief executive). Who was just appointed to the Apple Board of Directors.
I had to do a little headscratching at first to grok the angle here… But, Ms. Jung has been-there-done that, understands how to mobilize and manage for huge growth and enter into new, highly competitive markets. Wonder if we’re seeing anything akin to a grooming for Jobs’ eventual succession?
