Julia King is certainly a businesswoman with flair.
Now the executive director of Sun Corp and Opera Australia, her prestigious career has included a number of years presiding over an empire with an aroma more intoxicating than the headiest perfume - the rich and sensual fragrance of Louis Vuitton leather.
As one of only 15 women who have achieved "in the boardroom" status at the highest corporate level in Australia, Julia is certainly an extraordinary woman. After enjoying 20 years in the advertising industry Julia was on the verge of retirement when she was offered the position of Australian Chief Executive with Louis Vuitton and Lowe. Seven years later and under her guidance, the company had been through a major expansion program, with the number of stores increasing and sales up 32%.
In 1991 Julia was named Business Review Weekly's Marketing Person of the Year. An executive with attitude, Julias willingness to succeed has seen her become one of the success stories of Australia's retail industry. She is a witty and compelling speaker.
