CBI June 2018

Colin Grant, the CEO of the Pure Group, which has 35 yoga and fitness facilities throughout Asia and the U.S., has never considered failure an option.

“Every day, I talk to my guys, and tell them that we have to act like a small, nimble company. Bureaucracy, red tape, and different corporate layers—I'm making sure that we avoid those things as we grow.”

Colin Grant, CEO
