SNEWS® Live: Missy Park was once a college athlete. Her sports at Yale University included basketball and lacrosse. Back then she was a hard charging competitor. Today at the age of 46 Park takes those same dynamics of team competition to forge a philosophy that guides a very successful professional career. As founder and president of Title Nine, a specialty retail business, she now leads a team of passionate sports enthusiasts to inspire a new generation of women to lead an active lifestyle. SNEWS Live connected with Park to learn about the early days of her career and the path she’s taken to build a company with 160 employees, a widely distributed consumer catalog (first catalog was in 1989) and 10 retail locations (first retail location opened in 1994).
