#187 Reinventing in Pursuit of the Work You Love (Jill Granoff)

December 13 2022

Jill Granoff is no stranger to career reinvention. As a student at Duke University, Granoff was convinced she would pursue a career in psychology, but somewhere along the way she found that it just didn’t fit. Granoff reinvented her career with an MBA in organizational behavior, moving from industrial consultation to the beauty industry. She spent a decade at Estee Lauder where she found herself desiring another transition. Shifting from the corporate world to the business of retail and later into the fashion industry, Granoff was responsible for internationally-recognized brands like Victoria’s Secret, Liz Claiborne, Kate Spade and Juicy Couture. Now the CEO of Eurazeo Brands, her latest reinvention has led her into the world of private equity. In this conversation with Covey Club founder Lesley Jane Seymour, Jill Granoff shares her experience of reinvention through a different lens, navigating a national financial crisis, and more. Listen in for her advice on how to leverage your relationships to pursue the work you truly want.
