CEO Summit: Faces in the Crowd

Between panels and presentations, attendees at the summit in Florida had fun in the sun. At a poolside cocktail party sponsored by WSA and FFANY, execs mingled and sipped exotic drinks called “wingtip-tinis” and “golden stilettos.” Representatives from every end of the industry attended, including ASG chief Tom O’Riordan, independent retailer David Zaken and Sterne Agee analyst Sam Poser. Kids’ shoe kings Bernie Leifer and Bob Campbell rubbed elbows with style setters such as designer Faryl Robin Morse and Modern Vintage’s Rick Cytrynbaum. NSRA prez Chuck Schuyler was on site, along with Foot Petals’ Tina Aldatz and Margie
Floris. Thursday evening kicked off with a 1980s-themed soirée, and after dinner, power players like Sonny Shar toasted Zappos’ 10th anniversary.
