Women Who Win “Samantha Gold”

In honor of International Women’s Day, we are excited to kick off our new campaign “Women Who Win.” All year long we will be highlighting women in business whom we deeply admire. As a female-founded and operated company, we take pride in fostering sisterhood. Together, we aim to share inspiring stories of women fiercely pursuing their dreams.

Today we invite you to sit down with our very own CEO, Samantha Gold.  Sam is the definition of #careergoals. Having started her career in Sydney, Australia where she lived for 6 years, Sam worked her way up at the world’s most innovative tech companies and was consistently recognized as a top performer. 

Fast forward to today, Sam runs Elizabeth James where she combines her love for fashion, leadership and empowering other women. She moved to Charleston two years ago with her husband, Alex, precocious daughter Blair (2) and adorable son Wes (7 months). To say that she has her hands full running a business full time and taking care of two little ones is an understatement. We are in awe of how she so gracefully manages her roles as CEO and Mom. We sat down with Sam at her home to chat about how she balances her fashion world career with her life at home, the future of Elizabeth James, and what it took to make a bold career change.
