About the speaker:

Jung Yoon – Supply Chain Executive / Board Member / Mentor / Parent

Jung has held global leadership roles with world renowned retailers and brands, including Michael Kors, Coach, Alexander Wang and Kate Spade.

While Jung’s academic background is in business and statistics, she began her career in a telecommunication start-up. After “accidentally” transitioning into the fashion industry, Jung found her passion for creating the right balance between logic and magic, as well as mentoring diverse teams.

Jung currently serves on the board of directors for the Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA) and she is also a dedicated mom to Lauryn (18-years-old) and Brandon (9-years-old).
