Luncheon Program: Keynote Presentation by Pauline Brown

Wednesday, June 4, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Pauline Brown's career has been anything but a straight line. A Wharton graduate who began her business career as a Bain consultant, Pauline went on to work in corporate strategy for consumer-products companies (Estee Lauder and Avon), lead consumer-goods and retail investments for a private equity firm (The Carlyle Group), and advise emerging luxury brands as an independent investor and board member. Two years ago, she assumed her current role as the Chairman of North American operations for LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton. It's an eclectic resume, but throughout her impressive career, three common threads emerge: creativity, authenticity and the need for continuous learning.
