Le Deal:
How an American Built a Billion-Dollar
European Enterprise

McArthur Glen Center

Watch Beyond 50's video book trailer on "Le Deal," written by J. Byrne Murphy. He shares his personal story of starting off as a young American in business during the 1990's when the S & L crisis hit. He was in love, and in over his head, kick-starting a multi-billion dollar industry in Europe. Murphy explains how difficult it can be for an American to succeed in Europe, but how it can be accomplished. Byrne moved to Paris with his wife and baby daughter to start the company, McArthur Glen Europe, which grew from nothing to $1 billion in sales from 11 designer outlet centers across Europe that offer name brand fashions at 60% off (like in photo above of a McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Center in Kent, UK).

Lessons from J. Byrne Murphy:

Doing Business in France - 1) In response to new concepts, the French like to say, "No, No, No" and "It's Just Not Possible." 2) The French prides in individuality. Their mindset is one-on-one and not team-oriented. 3) In France, it's about job preservation, not job creation. 4) Lots of politics and bureaucracy. Government plays a strong role in business.

Doing Business in Germany -
1) Germans have an intense focus on the rules. 2) You'll need a strong PR firm. 3) Germans have an aversion to change. They are the most risk-averse in Europe. The entrepreneurial spirit in Germany is not encouraged because starting a business is risky.

Doing Business in Italy -
1) Italians like to say, "Yes, Yes, Yes." Going from "Yes" to implementation is the challenge. 2) Italians have a relaxed sense of time. Therefore, managing your time is important. 3) Italians are more open to forming an alliance with an American than with each other. 4) When doing business in Italy, have a partner you really, really trust.
