Before she launched Scaling Retail, Syama was making waves in the fashion industry, including doubling Gucci’s outlet division sales from $50 million to $100 million. As a leader in her industry, Syama has acted as a buyer, planner, and merchandiser for top brands from Macy’s to Barneys New York to Rhode to Frank White, building up significant industry experience at every turn.
Today, as the founder of Scaling Retail, an innovative retail consultancy and marketing agency, Syama leads a global team dedicated to the success of startup, growth stage and enterprise businesses. Her expertise has landed her in publications from NPR to The Financial Post, along with numerous speaking engagements, and she has also been named one of Women’s Wear Daily’s Top 20 Women in Business.
Scale, scale, scale — Syama’s vision for every brand she works with is built on the principle of expansion, whether it’s increasing employees or revenue. Because, as Syama likes to say, “Money is sexy.”
Syama didn’t grow up with a trust fund — she created her own success, and believes that every women is capable of building their own path toward financial success.
