Beth and Dianne interview Julie Rutherford, the Senior Director of Luxury Sales Associates at The RealReal, a leading luxury consignment business. Julie discusses her transition from a lengthy career in telecommunications into online and brick-and-mortar consignment, sharing advice on how others can take a leap into another industry themselves.
The RealReal was started out of founder and CEO Julie Wainwright's home. Since then, The RealReal has helped second-hand fashion go mainstream since 2019 when the company went public. What began as a scrappy startup has transformed the business of authenticated luxury consignment into a dynamic, global movement that champions not only quality and craftsmanship, but also sustainability and community.
