OMAHA, Neb., May 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- If you think your weekend was busy, here's a 60 second tour of this past weekend's hectic schedule of Kathy Ireland, the former cover girl who heads a $2 billion a year empire (as attested to in a Forbes cover story on her) which Licensing Global Magazine lists as the 28th most powerful brand in the world. Her "fairly-normal" weekend included a heated paper-tossing contest with two other former paper carriers who also did pretty well, Warren Buffet and Bill Gates. That was part of Kathy's annual participation at the national shareholders meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, whose Nebraska Furniture Mart led by CEO Irv Blumkin, was Ireland's first retail partner. Nebraska Furniture Mart continues to offer kiWW products from furniture, lighting, office, tabletop, flooring and more to their award-winning stores.
Last night, Ireland flew from Omaha to Rhode Island to provide the commencement speech for graduates of the New England Institute of Technology and to accept an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters. It is not the first such academic honor for the CEO and Chief Designer of kathy ireland WorldWide, whose own formal education ended with her high school diploma. Moretz Marketing, led by John Moretz, was Ireland's first brand partner. Ireland and Moretz will be celebrating the 21st year anniversary of their association this month.
