IT'S PERSONAL
The famous and soon-to-be-famous people
featured in this issue put a new twist on the
idea that if you want something done right, do it
yourself. Their take: forget about "right," just do it.
Whether it's superstars such as internationally renowned chef/restaurateur José
Andrés ("Heroes and Mavericks," page 12)
and the design royalty showcased in "Queens
of London" (page 26) or a rising star such as
Kia Weatherspoon, founder of Determined by
Design (another "hero"), there's a real urgency
about solving problems-and it's clear they all
feel it's down to them.
Andrés didn't sit back and wait for official
okays to set up meal services for workers
furloughed during the 2018/19 government shutdown, the firefighters battling last year's devastating wild fires in California and the Puerto
Rican people who suffered in the long, tragic
aftermath of 2017's Hurricane Maria. He just
packed up the essentials, delegated to a trusted
team and, with their help, brought comfort food
and compassion to people who were basically
living in hell. The best part? Andrés understood
that a famous guy handing out sandwiches could
feel as much like a publicity stunt as humanitarianism. He and team were well aware that victims
of these disasters didn't want to be issued some
pre-fab food just like they were given a sheaf of
forms. Instead, they served hot, hearty fare to
bring a universal piece of "home" to those who
needed a safe haven.
Weatherspoon didn't have his global platform, his prestige or his pocketbook to facilitate
her mission to replace the often dehumanizing,
penny-pinching design approach to affordable,
mixed income and supportive housing with
creative interiors anyone would be proud to call
home. What society saw (sees and will see for a

long time) as an insurmountable problem was
just one more hurdle for someone who's had to
overcome a lifetime of personal obstacles. The
designer found partners, proved she could do
the work and literally opened the door to a level
of lifestyle design usually reserved for the upper
income brackets.
None of our heroes and mavericks has had an
easy ride. They got fired; faced down prejudice,
started, failed, and started again. Gary Mendell,
chairman, HEI Hotels + Resorts and founder and
ceo, Shatterproof, our third hero/maverick, didn't
have all that many rocks in his professional road.
Then, in 2011, his world fell apart when his son,
Brian, died at the age of 25. Brian had suffered
with addiction issues for a decade. He had been in
and out of treatment facilities, with varying levels
of success. Mendell blamed himself. He felt alone.
His battle to find out the "whys" of this crippling loss pointed him toward research about
how addiction works in adolescent brains, how
many of the accepted treatment protocols ignore
science-based approaches and how many families are grappling with addiction problems.
Instead of closing down, he founded Shatterproof, a non-profit designed to end the stigma of
addiction and educate, advocate for and fundraise for ways to make this a problem of the past.
If this issue feels like a CTA button, it should.
Now is your chance to change the hospitality
industry and the world around you.
