Welcome back to another episode of The Defiant Business Podcast!
Today I'm talking with Barbara Cook, the CEO of omnichannel sexual wellness retailer Lovers and popular online lingerie retailer, Yandy. Barbara pivoted from running coveted fashion brands as the former President of Hudson Jeans and CEO of Miansai to reignite and reinvigorate the 40-year-old Lovers brand, and oversaw its monumental acquisition by the iconic PLBY (Playboy) Group, Inc. Barbara boasts more than two decades of retail and merchandising leadership experience from Gap, T-Mobile, and Starbucks.
In this episode, we're going to take a look at how Barbara switched from leading other types of retail companies to stepping into leading a sexual wellness retail company.
