Maureen Chiquet graduated college with no idea what she wanted to do. A marketing internship at L’Oreal unknowingly ignited a love of beauty and fashion in her that would inspire her future career. Maureen went on to work at Gap, where she helped launch the Old Navy brand, and eventually took on the role of US President of Chanel. In 2007, she became the Global CEO of the international luxury brand, enhancing the brand’s luxury positioning in all categories over a nearly 10-year career. In her recent book, Beyond the Label: Women, Leadership, and Success on Our Own Terms, Maureen explains how she found her passion and explains the importance of avoiding being boxed into a certain career or lifestyle.
