McGalla is humble when it comes to being a woman and a leader
In an interview with the popular press release news source PR Newswire, she was asked about her ideology behind being a woman in the world of business from the perspective that women don’t often climb to the top of corporate ladders’ ranks. Susan McGalla shared that “[her] angle on this in my career was not to ‘break the glass ceiling” … I never carried a chip on my shoulder.”
Just thinking that a woman could go so far in the world of business without thinking about the so-called glass ceiling almost seems like a pipe dream. However, Ms. Susan McGalla proved her potential and has since helped countless women, in turn, get farther than she had.
Ms. McGalla certainly didn’t start her career at the top of the aforementioned proverbial corporate ladder, though Susan unarguably ended up on top of it.
Her first job came with the now-dead department store network Joseph Horne Company, after which she moved to American Eagle Outfitters. Though Ms. Susan McGalla started off at American Eagle as nothing more than one of many divisional merchandise buyers, she earned the rank of President and Chief Merchandise Officer.
Susan’s last job in fashion came as the CEO of Wet Seal.
