"The New Next Gen"

Meet the Women Who Have Transitioned Their Careers for Successful Second Acts

Innovation can happen at any age. This is a key reason Women in Retail Leadership Circle decided to publish its latest report, The New Next Gen: Women Who Have Transitioned Their Careers for Successful Second Acts. The report celebrates women who have reinvented themselves and their careers after the age of 40. It’s designed to spotlight women leaders who understand that age and experience can give you the confidence, skills and vision to create new opportunities.  

The women featured in this year’s report demonstrate that innovation gets better with age, and that it’s after the age of 40 when many women embark on their most creative and productive times of their lives! For example, some of the women featured in this report started new companies after the age of 40, while others changed their careers and took leadership roles in totally new industries.  

The report includes an impressive lineup of women who are reinventing, disrupting and making an impact, all in their own different ways. The list includes trailblazers who followed their passions, including:  

  • Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, co-founder, Vera Bradley, and co-owner, The Bradley Hotel;  
  • Susan Feldman, co-founder and visionary behind One Kings Lane, and now the founder of In The Groove, a lifestyle destination for age-defying women;  
  • Sheena D. Franklin, founder and CEO of K’ept Health, a first-of-its-kind modern digital dermatology and skincare clinic for all women — no matter skin tone or skin condition;  
  • Sheilisa McNeal-Burgess, founder of Fria, a new lifestyle brand committed to developing next generation, wearable cooling technology designed to address overheating during menopause;  
  • Rena Nathanson, CEO and co-inventor of Bananagrams, the game for two to six players where letter tiles are used to create words as fast as possible; and  
  • Stephanie Stuckey, CEO of Stuckey’s Corp., a chain of roadside convenience stores that are found on highways throughout the United States.
