An entrepreneur of distinction

Aldo built a creative company with strong values. He proved that success in business and social responsibility can go hand-in-hand. His entrepreneurial spirit serves to inspire his team members and motivates them to achieve their full potential. He inspires them every day, and offers them support and encouragement to design new products that will continue to transform the shoe industry. Aldo is very close to people—consumers and associates alike. This global vision and local sensitivity is what the ALDO Group we know today is built on.

Developing the next generation’s full potential

These same principles are at the centre of the creation of the Bensadoun School of Retail Management, which will begin its research and training activities at McGill University in fall 2018. At a time when the retail sector is undergoing a number of changes, Aldo intends to set up a global centre for excellence that will help all retailers improve their business methods through academic research and the sharing of knowledge and experience.

We’re going to open a retail business school in order to train people, help them grow, and allow them to reach their full potential.
