The Top Women in Retail 2016: Mariah Chase, CEO, Eloquii
What do you enjoy most about working in the retail industry?
The merchandise and the connection to the customer.
If you weren’t working in the retail industry, what do you think you’d be doing?
Working in medicine.
How would you describe your leadership style?
Relaxed. As a team, we're headed towards the same goals and my role is to make sure those goals are clear and I’m doing the best I can to support the team as we grow.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received, and who gave you the advice?
Go for the biggest job/title/risk opportunity that's available to you. It was a piece of advice from my friend Alexandra at a time when I was unsure if I was "ready" for a bigger role. You're never 100 percent ready — that's the growth opportunity.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
Reading about medicine, traveling and eating ice cream.
