Delivering Good’s Annual Gala is coming up! On November 6, our supporters will gather to celebrate Delivering Good and our successes of the past year. This year, Rose Marie Bravo will receive Delivering Good’s Lifetime Achievement Award, honoring her remarkable career as a leader in the fashion and retailing industries.
Ms. Bravo, who currently serves on the boards of Tiffany & Co. and The Estee Lauder Companies, began her career at Abraham & Strauss in 1971 before moving to R.H. Macy and Co. where she held positions of increasing responsibility from 1974 to 1992.
In 1992, Ms. Bravo became the President of Saks Fifth Avenue, with responsibility for merchandising, marketing and product development. She also served as a member of the Board of Directors of Saks Holdings Inc.
Following her work at Saks Fifth Avenue, Rose Marie Bravo served as Vice Chairman of Burberry, the international luxury goods company with headquarters in London, until 2007. Ms. Bravo’s time as Chief Executive of the company was transformative for Burberry, as she and her team embarked on a repositioning of the brand with strategic initiatives in design, marketing, merchandising, licensing, wholesale and retail distribution.
During this time, Ms. Bravo greatly expanded Burberry’s U.S. market and doubled sales and profits. Due to her impactful work at Burberry, Ms. Bravo has earned a reputation as one of the top businesswomen in retail industry. In recognition of her services promoting British fashion, Rose Marie Bravo was named a Commander of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in June 2006.
