Most Powerful Female Dealmakers in Consumer Space Selected as Inaugural "DealmakeHers"
NRF to Celebrate Launch of DealmakeHers During Annual Conference

New York, NY - January 6, 2020 - Today, a group of the most impactful female dealmakers in the retail and consumer space was announced as part of the launch of DealmakeHers, an exclusive new network of leading female dealmakers who are shaping the way consumers shop today. These executives were selected to be inaugural members of this new community by some of the industry's most prestigious thought leaders and business influencers in the consumer space.

As part of the launch celebration, the National Retail Federation (NRF) will honor the members of the DealmakeHers community during the annual NRF: Retail's Big Show conference.

Within the consumer industry, women remain significantly underrepresented, and the exclusive DealmakeHers network brings together senior-level female leaders from Wall Street, business operations and the venture capital world to cultivate relationships and effect positive change in the consumer space. The members of the DealmakeHers community believe it's important that both funders and founders reflect the markets they serve, and plan to share their decades of expertise to inspire and promote new deals through private events, educational programs, VIP forums and other unique experiences. The dealmaking power players include:

DealmakeHers was founded by three executives who have worked together on deals in the consumer space for many years: Stacy Berns, President of Berns Communications Group; Stacey Widlitz, President and Chief International Store Hunter, SW Retail Advisors; and Mary Ann Domuracki, Managing Director, MMG Advisors.
