What matters to you.

Laurie Anne Goldman

ceo, Spanx, Inc.

Goldman, a leading entrepreneur, has grown the Spanx Company from a one-product wonder to a $270 million enterprise in retail sales in 2007. In addition to product expansion, she launched overseas sales and diversified distribution channels. The Company's bright red package has caught on with women of all persuasions who share a desire to shape things up. Prior to joining Spanx, Goldman spent 10 years with The Coca-Cola Company and previously created and managed events for more than 48 Macy's stores. While her business acumen is well documented, her dedication to the Jewish world is evidenced by her active volunteer status with a variety of causes in Atlanta and in the Jewish community. She was thrilled to represent the Jewish Committee before Israel's Minister of Defense and felt privileged to be selected to run the Olympic torch through the streets of Atlanta.
