Millions of TV viewers know Gert Boyle as the "one tough mother" from the Columbia Sportswear ads.
What many people probably don't know is how active and vibrant the 83-year-old exec really is.
She took over the company when her husband died suddenly at the age of 47. Under her leadership, Columbia has evolved into a $1.2 billion public company.
