Starting Fresh and Giving Back with Wendy Selig-Prieb

Wendy’s career path has been anything but linear. After graduating law school, she worked in law for only a year before taking a leap into working for Major League Baseball, where she climbed the ladder and became the only female CEO of a Major League team at the time with the Milwaukee Brewers. The Woman In Sports and Events Woman of the Year Award finalist then jumped to a very different scene: fashion. She began a business representing Worth New York and, as president of the company, found unique ways to give back to her community through her work, all while raising a family at the same time. In her current role, Wendy is a strategic advisor who works with companies looking to capitalize on new growth opportunities and drive large-scale transformation. Wendy’s professional and personal experiences have shaped her into a leader and she works to help others find their own inner leaders. From having the confidence to make bold career moves to giving back to her community to what she has learned from motherhood, Wendy’s insights are valuable to all women.
