Diane Sullivan to Receive ACE Award

Hard work is paying off for Diane Sullivan.

The president and CEO of St. Louis-based Brown Shoe Co. will receive the Business Visionary award on Nov. 4 at the 2013 ACE Awards in New York.

“It’s truly an honor being recognized for this particular award,” Sullivan said. “We’ve strategically repositioned Brown Shoe Co. over the last few years and it is always humbling when [an organization] like the Accessories Council recognizes and appreciates your efforts.”

Other honorees at this year’s event will include designer Philip Lim, Rag & Bone, Nordstrom and blogger Leandra Medine.

The 17th annual ceremony will also mark the first time the Accessories Council presents the Legacy award, an honor that will go to a person or company that has made significant contributions to the industry for more than 50 years. The inaugural recipient will be The Frye Co.
