As a part of my series about strong female leaders, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jillian Wright. Jillian is the co-founder of Indie Beauty Media Group, producer of Indie Beauty Expo/Uplink Live, Beauty Independent and BeautyX Summit. A skin health expert, Wright owned and operated Jillian Wright Clinical Skin Spa prior to founding IBMG in 2015. During her tenure there she also launched her eponymous skincare line. IBE is presented in five strategic international retail markets: New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, London and Berlin. IBMG has launched a range of services to better support beauty entrepreneurs on their path to success, including Beauty Independent, a digital publication geared towards beauty entrepreneurs, BeautyX Summit series focused on entrepreneurial learning and networking, and Retail Partnerships with Neiman Marcus, Feelunique and Douglas, offering retailers a program to seek, secure and sell differentiated indie beauty collections. Wright was recently honored by receiving the INNOCOS’ Emerging Leader of the Year award and is currently spearheading IBMG’s newest launch, Uplink Live, a companion event to IBE New York specifically designed to connect beauty entrepreneurs with qualified solution providers positioned to serve emerging brands.
