megan quinn: the birth of an era | online retailing
Megan Quinn discusses the birth of online retailing at Australia Speaks, our 50th anniversary celebration.
Megan Quinn has built a 25-year career in luxury retailing, advertising, publishing and design for the fashion, jewellery, hotel and airline industries. She has held a variety of leadership and senior executive roles, as well as non-executive board roles, utilising her strong commercial capabilities and deep expertise in brand and service offer development.
Her secondment to London with the Mojo advertising agency marked the beginning of 18 years of involvement with prestigious clients and established her brand development and campaign design skills as well as a deep understanding and appreciation of the commercial requirements of her clients. While in London, Quinn held executive board roles with both Harrods and Net-A-Porter. Today, she is a non-executive director of UNICEF Australia and Specialty Fashion Group, and an Ambassador for Fitted For Work.
One of Quinn’s notable achievements was her co-founding of the internationally acclaimed Net-A-Porter in 1999. Her role was to direct the brand development of the company, which launched in June 2000, serving as Creative Director, HR Director, and a Board Director.
Named the 15th most powerful woman in Australian retail in 2013 by Inside Retail, Quinn runs boutique consultancy Q&CO in conjunction with her Board appointments and involvement in philanthropy.
