We have a new neighbor! Geralyn Breig joined the Newton, Ma. based Clarks USA team as President in March and connected with Two Ten soon after. With a long history of community involvement, Geralyn is committed to Clark’s legacy of giving back and we are excited to support them in this next chapter.
Share an early, fond or funny story/memory about footwear.
My whole career has been about building global brands such as Avon beauty products, Godiva Chocolate and now Clarks footwear. It’s a dream come true for a woman brand builder –makeup, chocolate, and shoes — everything a woman could want!
What are you most excited about at Clarks?
Clarks was founded in 1825 and has maintained its strong values and culture. I’m quite proud to be part of that tradition. I’m also excited about the future, and our ability to grow the brand. I work with a very talented team, we have a fabulous product, and we cover a vast geography so I find that really energizing.
What are your thoughts about footwear’s unique brand of philanthropy and mutual support?
Clarks has a long history of social responsibility and charitable giving so we are proud to be part of a group, like Two Ten, that has been supporting the footwear community for 75 years! The footwear industry is highly competitive, but also tightly-knit, and it’s remarkable, and unique, to see the community pull together to support its own.
