Northern Kentucky University’s Haile/US Bank College of Business and Procter & Gamble Co. are proud to present this year’s keynote address “Bring the Hustle: Achieving Your Authentic Brand,” during 2019’s Business Week. Attendees will hear from Tristan Walker, CEO and Founder of Walker & Company Brands. Mr. Walker engages in a fireside chat led by Dave Knox, a leading consultant and award winning author of, “Predicting the Turn: The High Stakes Game of Business Between Startups and Blue Chips.”
Walker & Company Brands, recently acquired by Procter & Gamble, is a family of brands designing health and beauty solutions for people of color. The company launched with the introduction of its first brand, Bevel, after Tristan, a man of color, couldn’t find a razor he liked – so he created his own. Prior to launching Bevel, Tristan was an entrepreneur-in-residence at Andreessen Horowitz and the Director of Business Development for Foursquare.
