Alexandra Wilkis Wilson

> Gilt is an innovative e-commerce company that offers its members high-end merchandise, clothing, home decor, delicatessen food, travel and activities at discount prices.

In only 4 short years, Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, Founder and Chief Merchandising Officer, has amassed over 3.5 million members and grown to 4 BILLION DOLLARS in annual sales. In 2009, FastCompany called it the “darling of luxury-obsessed bargain hunters.”

Alexandra has over 13 years of international experience in luxury goods and retail. Prior to Gilt Groupe, she worked at Bulgari, Louis Vuitton, Merrill Lynch, and as a consultant for retail guru Marvin Traub at Financo. She holds a B.A. from Harvard College and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.

Alexandra’s book, By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shop, is an incredible story. But you have the opportunity to hear the story first hand and to be a part of the action.

As is customary, the meeting at the Harvard Club runs from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Plan to arrive at 10:00 a.m. sharp. We have a full day scheduled (including several new activities) and you won’t want to miss a minute.
