I would like to introduce myself as the newest member of the Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC) team. My name is Ashley Chiaradio. While I’m new to WIRLC, I’m no stranger to its parent company, NAPCO Media. I worked as a production and content editor for Promo Marketing for over two years. I left the company to pursue my MBA, but I’m happy to be back!

I’m so excited to be a part of the WIRLC team because both retail and women in leadership are important to me. Previously, I’ve worked for retailers American Eagle Outfitters, Burlington, and QVC. At each of these companies, I gained a passion for connecting with customers, whether it was in stores, e-commerce sites or on social media. I loved the challenge of adapting to customers’ needs and wants given how quickly their behaviors were evolving.

In my free time, I’m the vice president of membership of the Junior League of Philadelphia, an all-women leadership and volunteer organization. This position has allowed me to spend time around strong women who empower me every day! How lucky am I that I now get to join another group of strong, empowered women?

I’m so excited for my journey to begin with all of you, and I look forward to meeting some of you at the WIRLC: On the Road event in Los Angeles on July 24!
