NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Misahara, the New York handmade fine jewelry house, has announced today that the owners of the company have chosen Janice Winter as the organization's next Chief Executive Officer. Mrs. Winter, who served as President for fourteen years at Judith Ripka Companies, was "immediately engaged by the unique design and beautiful craftsmanship" of Misahara's jewelry.
"After a thorough research process, I am delighted to have Janice as our new CEO," says Misahara designer, Lepa Galeb-Roskopp. "Janice has a track record of strong leadership and success in the luxury industry. This combined with her experience at Estee Lauder and several other luxury brands makes her uniquely qualified to lead Misahara successfully into the future."
Established in the US with a boutique at the Plaza Hotel and a retail presence at Material Good in New York, Misahara has recently entered Neiman Marcus in select locations (Palo Alto, Beverly Hills) and will soon be available in key locations in both the West and East Coasts. Creating a brand that will be approachable and luxurious as it interacts on a variety of media platforms; perfecting the retail environment with sales professionals who can communicate the brand message and become a resource to their clientele are some of the goals Winter will be looking to accomplish.
"In the ever shifting global luxury market, luxury houses must first understand and evaluate where growth in luxury will come from and which luxury consumers will drive that growth. Emerging designers in particular must differentiate themselves and hone in on what is now driving the luxury consumer mindset," says Winter.
In 2007 Mrs. Winter founded Luxury Brand Consulting, Inc., a company that specializes in brand building, marketing, business development, retail operations, sales/distribution, and financial management. She is aligned with best in class retail organizations, luxury companies in fine jewelry, beauty, wellness/spa, fashion and accessories. Her key strengths are in growing businesses while maintaining brand integrity and relevance.
In 2013 Janice launched her new company, Janice Winter Inc.; a global business solutions company focused in luxury and specializing in scaling businesses through all growth phases. As a business operator and idea generator, Mrs. Winter connects her knowledge and understanding of the consumer mindset to product, brand strategies and ultimately to what drives purchasing. She is driven by her passion for excellence and consistently delivers sustainable business models for growth and profitability.
Misahara is a fine jewelry house influenced by the beauty of nature's pristine elements ranging from the Adriatic Sea to the Sahara Desert. The Misahara Collection is designed for empowered well-traveled women who much like its founder, Lepa Galeb-Roskopp, have an affinity for philanthropy. As a designer, she envisages art through the inspiration of world travels and transfers it into material form. With homes in New York, California, South Africa and Montenegro, Lepa's creations are reminiscent of each and every experience she endures. Misahara evokes a feeling of exquisite luxury, channeling a modern and suave flare marked by unique handcraftsmanship and the finest quality gemstones.
