Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Argent
Sali Christeson co-founded Argent in 2016 where she currently serves as Chief Executive Officer. Sali was born and raised in South Carolina, attending school in Savannah, Georgia. She studied Business at Furman University and went on to work in private Banking in Chicago. She left Chicago for graduate school in South Carolina. While earning her MBA from the University of South Carolina, she worked at Daimler in Berlin for 9 months. Sali moved to California and joined Cisco in 2012 as a participant in their Supply Chain Leadership Rotational Program. She settled into a role heading the Customer Advocacy team for their new cloud initiative—including defining, hiring, and managing the team. After working in the finance and technology industries for nearly 10 years, Sali became frustrated by the lack of quality clothing options for working women. So, she launched Argent and is reinventing the women’s workwear apparel category by creating a brand that encourages women to disrupt and connect.
In this session, successful entrepreneurs, Sali Christeson, Eleanor Turner and Karen Young, will share their approaches to mastering partnerships, risk-taking and networking. They will discuss their experiences as intra- and entrepreneurs and provide strategies for forming lasting business relationships to grow your business. Moderator: Meena Harris
