About Allison
I am currently CEO of Fred Segal, a lifestyle brand that has been iconic in LA for 57 years. In addition to our flagship store in Los Angeles, we license stores around the world including Japan, Switzerland, Taiwan and Malaysia. I am tasked with growing the brand and bringing our unique retail vision to a global audience. Prior to Fred Segal, I spent 11 years as COO of Ron Herman, another LA based retailer. I also spent three years at eBay as the Fashion category manager and 3 years in retail consulting before getting my MBA from Stanford. I am married to my husband Eric who is in real estate finance and we have two boys, aged 9 and 12.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I would love to connect and meet other like-minded, working mothers in my community. So often it feels difficult to find working moms at school and in organizations that I am involved with. When I heard about Heymama, I got really excited about the prospect of connecting with other women who are experiencing the same day-to-day issues I am.
