Top 25 Luxury Brand Women to Watch in 2013

Our friends at Luxury Daily have released a report on the top 25 women to watch in the luxury industry this coming year, and we’re loving their lineup. A big congratulations to all the accomplished women on the list – well deserved!

Some of the women gracing the report we know well here at the eTail Blog: Aliza Licht from DKNY, Felicia Yukich from Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Tamar Koifman from Digital Luxury Group, just to name a few.

Luxury Daily’s Editor-in-Chief, Mickey Alam Khan, said that these 25 executives made the cut because they shared the same qualities, some of which were consumer focus, ambition and leadership potential. “To them, luxury is not a job, but a passion,” said Khan.

Each were interviewed and asked questions about how to attract more women to the industry – to which many of them answered that women already are attracted to the industry but need to be better retained.

Surely Mickey and his staff will be happy for you to take a look at their full report. But for your quick viewing pleasure, we give you just the list, here:
