CEO of outdoors giant REI visits Boston, talks sport
Sally Jewell has been described by friends as a no-nonsense boss . . . except for when she’s climbing a mountain or in a boat. So when the 56-year-old CEO of outdoor retail and activities giant REI came to Greater Boston recently to check on local operations, she made sure to surprise a handful of the co-op chain’s “owners” by taking them kayaking around Hingham Harbor. She also took a few minutes to share with the Boston Globe what makes her tick.
