About me: Prior to joining LBS, Devon was a luxury account director with the Financial Times in New York City, where she managed US luxury advertising partnerships. Devon started her career in NYC as a marketing associate in fintech, and after 2.5 years she transitioned into luxury with a role at Quintessentially, a luxury lifestyle management and engagement agency, where she ran their key accounts.
Born in Hong Kong to American expatriates, Devon spent her younger years in Singapore and graduated from high school in London. As an American (and now naturalised British citizen) who had never lived in America, she went to Washington D.C. to study International Affairs for her undergraduate degree.
Devon chose to attend LBS for the opportunity to return to London, pivot her career and enhance her general management skills. Since starting LBS, Devon has joined the Women in Business Club as their new partnerships lead, along with the Art and Business Club as an off-campus officer.
Three topics I can be approached about: Women in Business Club; coming from a non-traditional background; London advantage
