Tim Brown |
CEO – Ellie Kai
Tim Brown is an experienced brand building expert and leader, and has had extensive executive management experience and success in Direct Selling, Retail and Wholesale businesses with premium, well-known brands in many product categories (Clinique, Trifari, Christian Dior, Coach, Swarovski). Most recently he was part owner, President, and CEO of Princess House, Inc., a $130 million Direct Selling – Party Plan company. Over the past 30 years, Tim has grown, turned around or revitalized many of these brands. Perhaps the crowning achievement in Tim’s rich branding history was leading the Swarovski team that achieved, as noted by the Wall Street Journal, “the kind of product placement positioning marketers dream about – at the top of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. Naming the 9-1/2 foot star, The Swarovski Star, was the first time in Rockefeller Center’s 70 year history that a corporate sponsor claimed this spot.” Most recently in 2006, Tim lead the Princess House team that, in 18 months, took a company which was highly leveraged to completely debt free, and then navigated the 2008 economic downturn to reach unprecedented levels of growth and profitability. He has also partnered with Jamie Oliver, the chef on the Food Network and has helped build his presence in media as well.
