Ron Donovan is the founder, creative director, and chief shoemaker of RONDONOVAN Footwear & Accessories Inc. He has nearly 25 years of experience in the footwear industry, and continues to design and produce lifestyle products under his RONDONOVAN label. He now also designs and produces for other prominent luxury brands.
Ron is, by many, described as having the extreme resiliency and is often asked how he became so driven. He says that he honestly doesn’t remember not having what others have described as, “the ultimate drive” and attributes his faith with being the force behind it. Donovan’s faith challenges and pushes him daily to give absolutely every bit that he has. It also provides him with comfort and hope, and enables him to trust when there just isn’t any more he can do. He believes there are two types of men; those who live and those who exist. Ron’s journey through life has been about living, not just being.
