Irina Kapetanakis has spent the better part of the last two decades driving top-line sales and revenue growth for significant Fortune 500 companies.

Irina was at Legg Mason Asset Management for 13 years and held various sales positions while at the company. She managed internal and external sales teams as well as leading some of the largest wire house relationships for the organization.

She heads up the marketing organization and works with enterprise fashion brands across the world. Irina is also the host of the Suuchi Podcast, focusing on timely supply chain topics top of mind for most executives today. She has wholly rehauled the organization, and within six months, the team was exceeding their goals and continue to do so today.

Irina is an influential leader, extremely well respected and appreciated by her team. She is a dedicated fan of Simon Sinek’s leadership ideologies. She believes that to be a great leader, one needs to continuously define the “why” for every single individual on the team. When people work with purpose, they feel empowered, motivated, and satisfied.
