An Insider's view of Tapestry

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I spent the majority of my career within the CRM + analytics space; running all direct to consumer marketing, segmentation strategies, and customer analytics. I'm most proud of my move to the ecommerce team. While I didn't have direct ecommerce experience, I knew the business well since I helped to grow it while on the marketing team.
