(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Clint McKinlay recently took over as CEO at Ruby Ribbon, replacing Anna Zornosa, who was also the company’s founder.
In announcing the change, the company described McKinlay as “a globally respected veteran in the direct sales channel” who “has effectively driven revenue growth and international expansion for several leading beauty and wellness brands, including Rodan + Fields, Shaklee, and Jafra Cosmetics.”
Ruby Ribbon focuses on selling shapewear, direct to consumers, using what it has called its “social commerce network of stylists.” Founded in 2011, the privately-held company has raised about $19 million in several rounds of financing.
Lori Bush, a Ruby Ribbon board member, said of the move, “Through the years, Clint has become a highly respected seasoned leader in social selling channels. The Ruby Ribbon Stylist community will enjoy his wisdom, his humble and empathetic leadership style, and especially his energy. He is a champion of women in business, and the ideal leader to take Ruby Ribbon into its next phase of growth.”
Added Jennifer Trzepacz, another Ruby Ribbon board member and partner at Wildcat Venture Partners, “Clint will be an incredible asset as we move ahead in 2020 and beyond. His combination of channel expertise, track record of results, and leadership ability will guide us through this next growth phase.”
McKinlay himself stated, “Ruby Ribbon has courageously proven that body positivity and innovative shapewear do, in fact, pair beautifully. My life has been profoundly influenced by strong women. I am proud to be part of a company which leads a market and movement that empowers women in many ways.” — NM
