Two Ten Footwear Foundation has added two of the industry’s top women to its board of directors — Louise Camuto and Leslie Gallin.
Camuto, chief creative officer of Camuto Group, and Gallin, president of footwear at UBM Advanstar, were both featured on the cover of FN’s “Women Who Rock” issue earlier this month.
“Our industry will benefit so much from the addition of Louise and Leslie to the Two Ten Board,” said Diane Sullivan, chairman, CEO and president of Caleres and vice chair of Two Ten’s board of directors. (Sullivan becomes chairman in December.) “Both bring a wealth of knowledge to the organization and leadership that will help guide us in finding more ways serve the footwear community.”
“Louise and Leslie bring a fresh, coast-to-coast perspective to Two Ten,” added Neal Newman, president of Two Ten Footwear Foundation. “Their expertise, networks and visibility will help us raise our profile on the West Coast and in new markets.”
Two Ten has worked to support women in the shoe business through its Women in the Footwear Industry Initiative (WIFI). Most recently, Liz Rodbell, president of Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor — a Two Ten board member herself — wowed a crowd of female leaders and rising stars during FFANY week.
