We recently caught up with FIDM Alumna Jene Fuchs, who is COO for the luxury lifestyle brand Thomas Wylde, which is carried at stores like Maxfield in L.A., Kate Daniels in Seal Beach and Barney’s in New York. Jene oversees everything from design and product development to sales, production, shipping, customer service, logistics, and even accounting.
After a day of working with the sales team in New York and the design team in Los Angeles, Jene says, "My real job begins at 6pm when I start calling Asia checking on production, product development and shipping. I work with my shipping team in Seoul navigating everything from my Mac computer."
In her current role, Jene makes trips to Korea, China, India, Paris, and New York. "Traveling chic is part of my job," reports the mother of twin girls. "I get to wear amazing clothes everyday from the Thomas Wylde collection and I change my outfits a few times a day."
Could you see yourself running the show like Jene?
