Jennifer Sey

Jennifer Sey

Chief Marketing Officer - Global Brands, Levi's

Jen Sey has been with LS&Co. for 18 years, holding a variety of leadership positions within the Marketing, Strategy and Ecommerce teams. In 2013, Sey became the Global Chief Marketing Officer for the Levi’s® Brand and most recently in 2016 was appointed CMO Global Brands, Levi Strauss & Co., overseeing marketing for the Levi’s® and Dockers brands.

Twenty years ago, she began her career at an advertising agency, Foote Cone and Belding, where she worked on a variety of brands including Levi’s®. She went on to become the advertising manager at Banana Republic before landing at Levi Strauss & Co in 1999.

At LS&Co she has held a broad range of assignments across both Levi’s® and Dockers brands including Director of Marketing for U.S. Levi’s®, Senior Director of Global Strategy for Levi’s®, Vice President of Global Marketing for Levi Strauss & Co and SVP for Dockers Global Marketing. In 2012, she stepped into the role of Senior Vice President of Global Ecommerce driving the business and re-platforming efforts for both levi.com and dockers.com across the regions.

In 2013, Jen returned to the Levi’s® Brand as CMO and quickly launched the Live in Levi’s® campaign, notable for reconnecting the brand with its optimistic spirit that fans around the world have loved about Levi’s® for decades. The campaign is a celebration of our products and our brand, showcasing how people all over the world live in Levi’s®. The Live in Levi’s “Beautiful Morning” television spot was honored as a 2015 Taste Award’s Special Achievement Spotlight winner, recognizing Jen’s immediate impact.

Sey has received numerous awards, including the distinction of AdAge’s Top 40 Marketers Under 40 in 2006, one of the Top Women in Retail by Total Retail in 2014, one of Brand Innovators’ Top 50 Women in Marketing in 2015, and one of Hot Topic’s Top 100 Retail Marketers in 2016. Most recently, Sey was named one of Billboard Magazine’s ‘Top 25 Most Powerful People in Music and Fashion,’ recognizing her work with Alicia Keys and the Levi’s® Music Project.

As a child, Sey led an intense life of dedication, challenge and competition. She won the US National Gymnastics Championship title in 1986, less than one year after having suffered a devastating injury at the 1985 World Championships. As a result the U.S. Olympic Committee named her Gymnastics’ Athlete of the Year. Jennifer retired after eight years on the national team and went on to study at Stanford University where she double majored in Communications and Political Science. In 2008, Sey released her first book, “Chalked Up”, a memoir detailing her triumphs and struggles within the world of competitive gymnastics. In August 2016, “Chalked Up” became a New York Times E-Book Best Seller. She has published an OpEd in the New York Times and been featured on a variety of talk shows including “Good Morning America”’ and CBS’ “This Morning” discussing the pros and cons of elite competitive childhood athletics. Sey lends her voice to online outlets such as Salon.com and she continues her work started with “Chalked Up” as an athlete advocate.

Eric Asche

Eric Asche

Chief Marketing Officer, Truth Initiative

As the leader of Truth Initiative’s marketing team, Eric Asche develops successful, life-saving public education campaigns that change attitudes, beliefs and behaviors surrounding tobacco use. Eric’s compelling messaging reaches young people everywhere through a broad spectrum of media channels.

Eric has considerable experience crafting campaigns around the dangers of smoking. Before joining Truth Initiative in 2006, he was account director at the award-winning advertising agency GSD&M in Austin, Texas. There, he worked with Truth Initiative on a number of successful efforts, including EX®, Bob Quits, Mary Quits, Great Start, and Circle of Friends. He also managed accounts for several nationally known brands, including AT&T, Southwest Airlines, Kinko’s and the publisher of Rolling Stone, Us Weekly, and Men’s Journal.

Eric’s ability to develop marketing campaigns that affect hearts and minds will be critical in achieving Truth Initiative’s ambitious goals to de-normalize smoking and tobacco use. Truth Initiative has always been about exposing Big Tobacco’s lies and manipulation and it wants to expose its audience to these practices so that they can make their own decisions about tobacco use.
