ALFRED A. EDMOND JR. 

Partner/co-designer/spokesperson for the Windsor Neckwear Alfred Edmond Jr. Collection   

Whether providing multimedia brand leadership for Black Enterprise, talking Money Matters on American Urban Radio Networks and the Doug Banks Radio Show, delivering business expertise on CNN and MSNBC, speaking before thousands at a conference, or inspiring a loyal social media following on Twitter and Facebook, Alfred A. Edmond Jr. delivers enthusiasm, inspiration, substance, a commitment to uplifting others and an unmistakable sense of personal style—marked by his signature accessory, the hand-tied bow tie. Edmond’s passion for “standing out while fitting in” drives the style and design vision, featuring traditional patterns reimagined with a bold color palette, for the Alfred Edmond Jr. Collection of bow tie and men’s accessories line for Windsor Neckwear.  

“My mother, who raised four children as a single divorcee on public assistance, laid the foundation for my sense of style. By the time I was 10 years old, she ditched our clip-ons and taught my brother and I how to hand tie our ties,” Edmond explains. “She planted the seeds for the idea that your outward presentation should credibly reflect your inner substance as a person.”  

“My passion for personal style grew when I began my magazine editing career at the now defunct men’s fashion lifestyle magazine MBM/Modern Black Men, when an early career goal was to become the first Black editor at GQ or Esquire,” he continues. “That passion fully matured at Black Enterprise, where professional style and quality attire is a major part of the corporate culture and entrepreneurial brand vision of our founder, Earl Graves Sr.” 

“My partnership with Windsor Neckwear represents a professional and business opportunity to indulge my love of style, while honoring a passionate belief, shared by both my mother and Mr. Graves, that my outward presentation is not just about image, but about my spirit and substance as a man, my inner confidence, authenticity, talent, strength and knowledge of my own value and ability. I hope to share this style philosophy with others who want to express their individuality and aspire to personal excellence, and I greatly appreciate Windsor Neckwear Co-Founders Michael McPherson and Mace Neal for seeing the value of partnering with me to do so.” 

An award-winning reporter and editor and nationally recognized expert on business and economic trends and entrepreneurship, Edmond is best known for more than 25 years as a chief editor and senior executive at Black Enterprise, the leading media company focused on business and financial content for African American entrepreneurs, executives, professionals and those interested in financial empowerment. As SVP/Multimedia Editor-at-large of black enterprise, he is a content leader, brand representative and expert resource for all media platforms under the black enterprise brand, including the magazine, television shows, web site, social media and live networking events. From 2008 through 2010, Edmond was SVP/Editor-in-chief of BlackEnterprise.com, helping to lead the transition of black enterprise from single-magazine publisher to digital-first multimedia company. From 1995 through 2008, Edmond was chief editor of black enterprise magazine. 

Edmond appears regularly on television and nationally syndicated radio, including serving as host of WVON 1690 Chicago’s The Urban Business Roundtable weekly radio show; commentator on PBS’ Nightly Business Report; contributor to American Express OPEN Forum and The Doug Banks Show radio program; and guest expert on MSNBC’s Your Business and CNN. He also hosts Money Matters, a syndicated radio feature of American Urban Radio Networks. As a highly sought-after public speaker, live-event interviewer and moderator, he is a co-partner, with Zara Green, of A2Z Personal Development Enterprises.   
 
In addition to his passion for style, Edmond is a health and fitness enthusiast who has competed in amateur bodybuilding competitions and a devoted mentor and confidant to dozens of successful professionals and entrepreneurs. In addition, he is a golfer and a lifelong fan of professional football, and the New York Giants in particular.
