Prior to this, she spent three decades leading vital retail initiatives across a variety of world-class organizations including Polo Ralph Lauren, Liz Claiborne, The Children’s Place, and Tory Burch. At Calvin Klein, she led the company’s North American Retail Division as President, setting strategic direction for merchandising, consumer experience, and operational improvements.

Throughout her career, Barrie has focused on mentoring and developing talent and creating cultures that foster collaboration and equality. She has held several diversity and inclusion roles including leading the LGBTQ business resource group and participating in the Women’s Leadership Council at Calvin Klein.  She currently serves as a national leader for Cushman & Wakefield’s Women’s Integrated Network National Chapter; is an ally member of UNITY, their LGBTQ employee resource group; and is a member of Chief, a network focused on connecting and supporting women executive leaders.
