Peter Nygard BioTech

Peter Nygard has built a global fashion empire employing 10,000 people worldwide and during this journey he has contributed significant funding to critical health research including Breast Cancer.

A pioneer and risk taker Mr. Nygard is now financing extensive research into the promising human therapeutic benefits of SCNT- Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer.

Mr. Nygard has recruited global medical leaders to join him in his new prime mission and he is building a world-class medical facility in the Bahamas where this amazing technology will be employed to change the way we deal with disease and enhance the longevity of Mankind.

Next year an ultra-modern stem cell medical facility with an investment of more than $100 million will be built in The Bahamas. Nygard said the stem cell medical facility will allow The Bahamas to compete with countries like Thailand that is already the industry’s leader in stem cell research.

He said every country in the world is clamouring to get involved in medical tourism, which is driven by stem cells, which is the new wave or most advanced medical concept ever known to man.

Nygard explained that patients would have the ability to visit The Bahamas for medical care while enjoying their vacation.

Nygards show generosity with another donation to Empty Stocking

The local fashion leader has designed its own unique ways to raise money for the Christmas Cheer Board each year.

That trend continued in 2014 as Nygard International raised a grand total of $8,507 that it is donating through our Empty Stocking Fund.

"Wow! Good stuff," Cheer Board executive director Kai Madsen said.

Nygard raised $4,290 of that through its annual Global Raffle, where each employee around the world gets involved. Each pays $5 for a chance to win one of three gift cards valued at $1,000, $500 or $300.

Nygard also raised $4,217 at its annual Holiday Party, which about 200 employees attended at the St. Charles Country Club last month. Included in the auction prizes were a Macbook Pro 13 laptop and a trip to Orando, Fla.

The gift cards and prizes were supplied by Nygard's generous suppliers and vendors.

"Nygard has been part of our team for many years and, not only do they come up with some fantastic dollars for us, they also do some tremendous hampers," Madsen said. "I've seen them and they're wonderful.

"We depend a great deal on the folks at Nygard and I hope that we continue our tremendous relationship."

See 5 things Nygard Slims can do for you!

Peter Nygard is a serious businessman

Peter Nygård is one serious business man and self made. He works up to 16 hours a day and has annual sales in ready-to-wear women’s apparel “approaching the $1 billion mark.”

This is partly due to opening of the 2,500 square foot flagship store at 1431 Broadway in southern Times Square New York and from an increase in sales of 25% providing the largest six month revenue in the company’s 42 year history.

The business’ success is also down to planning and some smart technology such as the Product Development Management System (PDM) and the Automatic Reorder of Sales system known as Arts2.

The PDM is software which accurately costs designs before manufacture while Arts2 integrates CAD/CAM systems connected with store cash registers to keeps a track of point-of-sale data to automatically generate re-orders of stock creating a highly efficient business.

Throw in a contributing role to Canada’s free trade agreement with the US (NAFTA) as the Chair to the advisory committee on future Canadian long-term Industrial Strategy in 1982 and active involvement for Canada’s globalization strategies and you have an intelligent, switched on business.

But the most impressive thing about Nygård is its family ties.

Peter Nygard not a stranger to Bahamian athletics

When it comes to Bahamian athletics Peter Nygård is definitely not a stranger.

Over the years Nygård's love of sports and his desire to help people succeed has motivated him to sponsor many Bahamian athletes. For example for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia Nyård sponsored the "Golden Girls" relay team and they subsequently ended up winning the first gold medal for the Bahamas.

Again in 2002, Nygård was instrumental in helping the Amateur Boxing Federation of the Bahamas take its team to Martinique. In recent years his support for beach volleyball has grown, making significant contributions to The Bahamas Volleyball Federation and The Bahamas National Beach Volleyball team.

Many times you can actually catch ordinary Bahamians plying volleyball on his Estate at Nygard Cay.

And quite often you'll find Peter in the thick of it!

Peter Nygard hits back over Bahamas lawsuit

Canadian fashion clothier Peter Nygard is fighting back over claims that he is altering the ecosystem on a bay around his lavish Bahamas estate.

"Mr. Nygard fully supports protecting the environment of the Bahamas. It is the natural beauty of the island which led him to choose this country for his home. "

"Peter Nygard became a Bahamian in the early 80s. He is an environmentalist, a humanitarian and has been described as the most philanthropic champion for the Bahamian people," the statement reads in part.

"Currently, in addition to substantial donations, Peter Nygard has also given the full use of his home to the Bahamian National Defence Force, who is working in partnership with the Clifton Heritage Foundation in the running of a six-week summer camp for 700 inner city kids, which is being hosted presently at Nygard Cay."

Peter Nygard cannot turn down a friend

Peter Nygard with King Eric
WHILE he admitted that he would like to see a better support system in place to fund local sporting events to counteract what he has done over the past two decades, businessman Peter Nygard said he never says no to his long-time friend and brother, King Eric Gibson.

Nygard, during a press conference at his unique house at Nygard Gay in Lyford Cay, presented Gibson with a cheque for $10,000 for the Acklins Regatta August 1-4. It’s expected that the regatta site at Spring Point will be named in honour of Gibson.

Nygard said when he was contacted by Gibson, he couldn’t turn him down because “he’s the King.”

Additionally, Nygard has made a contribution to just about every regatta held in the country. He noted that Gibson has been responsible for getting him to assist the regattas, but when he was approached this time, he couldn’t turn down his friend.
