Great leaders bring great progress. Case in point: Barneys’ own COO and Senior Executive Vice President Daniella Vitale, who was recently interviewed as part of Goldman Sachs’ Talks@GS series, a recurring event in which leading visonaries share their knowledge with the Goldman Sachs community (previous speakers have included Madeleine Albright, Tom Brokaw, and Lauren Bush Lauren).

Vitale revealed the high-level strategies and initiatives she’s employed during her five-year tenure, giving listeners the inside scoop on closing the Madison Avenue ground-floor hat department, how the Opening Ceremony X Intel MICA Smart Bracelet convinced Barneys to launch wearables, and the importance of an innovative digital strategy—of which The Window is proud to be a part of. Watch the session’s highlights in the video above for an inspiring end to your work week.
