Meet The Women of The Parker Avery Group

    As we prepare to attend the Women in Retail Leadership Summit, we are taking the opportunity to celebrate our own female retail leaders, who bring a collective 300 years of experience in senior-level retail positions and consulting roles to the firm. Their breadth of expertise spans the retail gambit, encompassing product development, merchandising, supply chain, store operations, digital channels, and change management, among other areas. This highly diverse, yet tight-knit group of women have worked across apparel, specialty, and CPG in a variety of countries across the globe, and each brings their own unique personality—and tremendous skill set—to Parker Avery. Off the client sites, you'll find them enthusiastically volunteering, effortlessly hoisting kettle balls, traversing ski slopes, gracefully dancing Flamenco, building and refinishing furniture, sampling fine wines and craft beer, sailing around the globe, hitting the links, and running marathons.
