An Evening with Maureen Chiquet, former CEO of Chanel
09/14/2017 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm$25
Meridian Capital LLC and BNY Mellon Wealth Management are proud to welcome Maureen Chiquet, former CEO of Chanel, to Seattle for this premier networking and leadership event with a dedicated advocate for women’s advancement and success.
When Chiquet left her position as Global CEO of the acclaimed fashion house Chanel last year, she knew that her unique trajectory and approach to leadership could help others think differently about their own values and goals. On June 22, Chiquet will discuss the release of her new book, Beyond the Label: Women, Leadership, and Success on Our Own Terms, during a fireside chat, audience Q&A and book signing. This is a truly different book about creating a meaningful personal life and rewarding professional path, on your own terms.
Maureen Chiquet began her career in marketing at L’Oreal Paris in 1985. She has worked at The Gap, helped launch Old Navy, and was President of Banana Republic prior to joining Chanel in 2003. In 2007 Chiquet became Chanel’s first Global CEO, where she oversaw the business and brand’s world-wide expansion.
