http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2432311/Karl-Lagerfeld-Meet-men-Chanels-19billion-fortune–Alain-Gerard-Wertheimer.html

Nice article and good educational lesson about the role of business owner and where the spotlight should be.  Karl Lagerfeld the designer is the visible face and represents the brand of Chanel, but brothers Alain and Gerard Chanel are in control of the perfume, fashion and accessories label.  They sit on the forth row at the fashion shows and avoid the spotlights.

A lesson to high profile business owners, sometimes the spotlight isn’t about you, give credit and spotlight to the right leader and enjoy the success.
