Professional Superpower

Ashley created and executed a responsive supply chain strategy at Athleta for knit tops that led to a 60% increase in revenue and was the highest percentage of styles on a reduced pipeline of any category within any Gap Inc. brand. 90% of the total knit tops assortment was on a shortened timeline that allowed for style, print, color and size flexibility. 60% of the assortment was on a 17 week pipeline from purchase order to in-distribution center (INDC) by vessel, and the remaining 30% was on a 4 week pipeline from PO to INDC by AIR.

Personal Superpower

Ashley has full-product lifecycle management experience; from product development/initial design concepts until point of purchase/complete customer satisfaction (this includes purchase orders, vendor payment structures, cash flow calendars, testing, quality control, managing customer call outs, etc.)
