Young Women of Influence Evening Series Presents…“Chic Ambition”
"Fashions fade, style is eternal." — Yves Saint-Laurent
CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, ARITIZIA
WEDNESDAY MAY 9, 2012 • TIME: 5:30PM - 7:30PM
The Westin Calgary
From British Columbia to New York, Aritzia's Jennifer Wong is styled for success. Two key components of this fashion mecca have not changed since its humble beginnings tucked inside the Hill's of Kerrisdale department store in Vancouver: its distinctly Canadian vibe, and the involvement of Wong. At just 18 years old, Wong joined the Aritzia team as a part-time sales associate in 1987. Twenty-five years later she's now the Chief Operating Officer. Wong's impressive advancement can be attributed to a potent combination of commitment, ambition and an innate business acumen. Her integral involvement in Aritzia's growth includes overseeing its U.S. expansion and launching Aritzia's new e-commerce site, due later this year. One of the challenges Wong faces as a leader of a growing organization is her inability to draw on previous work experiences. While every new venture is also new to Wong, she sees this as motivation to think outside the box. Join us on May 9th to inspire the confidence to succeed in style.
