The new owner-management team at the International Sports Shop is a likely pick for this draft. The under-40s, national sporting icons are working toward a new common goal – to bring the best sports equipment and apparel to Bermuda with unmatched quality service.
They’re not in it just for retail; it’s their passion for sports and their competitive spirit that drives them.
Friends since childhood, they each bring different skills to the team and they recognise each other’s strengths.
The brother-like businessmen identify each other’s characteristics and laugh about it. “Daniel is the quiet one, so when he talks, we all listen.” Another adds, “Brian is the talker, we treat him like the little brother and pick on him, in an affectionate way!” Harry is the cautious one. “He’s always double checking the details, he runs mental scenarios and is always a couple of steps ahead.”
The combination of personalities, business attributes and friendship is what got this team to where they are today and they plan to bring their fun-loving but no-nonsense approach to the International Sports Shop to create the trendy sporting culture in a retail environment, that Bermuda has been lacking.
