home | Our Advisory Council | Karen Good

Karen Good

Although she has the requisite education to build and grow a multi-million dollar business, what distinguishes Karen Good from other successful CEO's is her remarkable ability to look at a project (or problem) and in a flash be able to determine what is needed to complete the job (or fix the problem) and who can do it best. No amount of text book learning or classwork can teach that.

It is only from actually running a design business that traits like these emerge, and Karen has proven herself in that regard many times over. Not only did she found, nurture and ultimately build Michael Good Designs from a two-person operation into a nationally-recognized artistic enterprise, she also was recognized for her achievements, being named Maine Entrepreneur of the Year in 1990 and receiving an award for Excellence in Manufacturing from the Women's Jewelry Association in 1993.

While the education she received at several universities was critical to her success, what we value most are the practical advice and insights about running an art-based business that she freely shares with everyone in the designer community.
