Stuart Weitzman
Chairman, CEO, Designer; Stuart Weitzman
2008 Rank: 40

He may have a reputation for making million-dollar shoes — and smashing ping-pong balls for hours on end — but Weitzman continues to serve up high fashion at affordable prices. And while his shoes are in hot demand, the 68-year-old is still not satisfied. Next up for him is a handbag collection produced by a top Italian licensee. And there are no signs of slowing down on the retail front either. With more than 500 points of distribution and 34 stores in the U.S. alone, business continues to grow. The ongoing success stateside is essential for Weitzman, as he expands his business overseas by adding to the current 32 international stores. Global accounts make up 35 percent of Weitzman’s business but are sure to increase as the designer opens two new stores in Canada and one in Australia.

Power Players: Wayne Kulkin, president, wholesale; Barbara Kreger, EVP
