Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz Talks to the Media

Ran into him and an entourage (complete with police and security guards) at Waterfront Station in Vancouver. The store behind him has been in business for 20 years.

    For some reason he looks kinda dapper and handsome to me...
  • Richard Eriksson PRO 8y

    That was the first thing that struck me, was his good looks and celebrity aura, but I still didn't know who he was until I asked someone in the entourage.

    Wow, that's cool. Thanks for pointing that out! Too bad they don't link to the original here, though. At least they credit me, so they've done the bare minimum.

    I saw the news that he was now the CEO of Starbucks. The photo adorns the Wikipedia page for the man (I should know, I put it there), but nice to see it got a little more attention.

    kinda funny seeing the term "gwai lo" as a credit in Business Week

    Consumerist uses this photo, with a speech bubble, to adorn a post about a recent lawsuit involving tips to Starbucks baristas. (They got it from the Howard Schultz Wikipedia page.)
