Robert Herjavec, Unpacked: What The Nice Shark Won't Travel Without
June 03, 2019 / Suzanne Rowan Kelleher
Although he’s now famous as a wealthy investor on ABC’s reality pitch show Shark Tank, Robert Herjavec wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. His family fled communist Yugoslavia (now Croatia) in 1970, arriving in Canada by boat with one suitcase and just $20. Young Herjavec worked hard waiting tables, delivering newspapers, and eventually launching a computer company from his basement. Today as the CEO of the Herjavec Group, Canada's largest IT security provider, Herjavec is also a veteran road warrior who spends 100 days away from home each year. He recently teamed up with La Quinta by Wyndham to unveil the brand’s first-ever “La Quinta Means Business” survey, which delves into the behaviors, quirks and realities business travelers face.
