Losing colleague Jana Eggers

SpreadShirt.com is a top t-shirt printer with offices in Boston. They are based in Germany and really led the way in Europe before moving to the US and competing with CafePress and Zazzle.

Jana Eggers has been their CEO for three years and announced she is leaving the company today. I was fortunate to meet with Jana a year or so ago at her office. She’s passionate about self-expression tees and triathlons. I am always amazed by endurance athletes, so we chatted about her training and next event most of the time (with a little ‘shop talk’ in between). I hope her new endeavor involves her favorite sport in some way. Best of luck jana!

  1. Andrew, Thanks for the kinds words. As you know, I’m a big supporter of this industry. I look forward to seeing the advancements in the next four years, after this past 4 years of growth and changes. It continues to amaze me!

    I have an Ironman in 10 days now, so I’m busy focusing on that for the moment, then off to new things. ??

    1. Jana, Best of luck in WI!

      My cousin is doing a half ironman September 21st in Croton-on-the-Hudson, NY and my wife just emailed me (while i was writing this) about the three of us beginning to train for the “Full Vineman” Ironman next summer……so hopefully I’ll see you out on the course sometime soon!

    2. I couldn’t agree more and have done or adesvid my clients to do the same thing.But it goes both ways everyone at an organization who might come in contact with candidates needs to be coached on the recruiting process and use good etiquette so that a candidate’s first impression of an organization is as positive as it can be.I’ve had friends tell me that the receptionist was rude or they heard admin people complaining about a company policy and other instances of just plain rudeness on the part of the employees in an organization. I always advise job seekers to observe how they are treated from their first contact to the time they arrive at an organization to the time they find out if they have or have not been selected for the job. (Hopefully they are notified.)During an interview everyone (not just the candidate) should be on their best behavior. It’s so important to make a good first impression.
