Wendy Prieb appointed as President of Worth New York

Worth New York, a division of The Worth Collection, Ltd., announces the appointment of Wendy Selig-Prieb as President. Formerly the CEO of the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, Selig-Prieb has been a Worth New York sales associate since 2005, and upon her appointment, hailed as the top seller in the country for Worth New York.

"Not only has Wendy built one of the largest Worth businesses in the country, but she embodies those who wear and sell Worth: successful women who balance career, family and community responsibility," said David DeFeo, CEO of The Worth Collection. "Her passion, charisma and warmth consistently made her agency one of the top grossing in the country and an inspiration to her fellow Worth sellers."

The Worth Collection, Ltd. offers a modern and highly personalized approach to luxury fashion with sophisticated designs, exceptional craftsmanship and couture-quality materials for women of influence. Privately owned by Catterton Partners, The Worth Collection, Ltd. is sold nationwide exclusively through trunk shows.

Selig-Prieb joined Worth New York seven years ago when she stepped down from the Brewers as part of a transition to create a more balanced life and spend more time with her family in Scottsdale, Arizona. Working for Worth New York has provided her the opportunity to be family-focused, engaged in her community and professionally challenged.

"To now have the chance to lead this brand I love and that, among other things, is founded and focused on providing opportunities for and empowering women, is an honor and a privilege," said Selig-Prieb. "Worth New York is one of the best places for women to work as we provide the opportunity to succeed in business while affording the flexibility to balance family and personal commitments. My mission is to provide this opportunity to a lot more women."

In addition to her responsibilities at Worth New York, Selig-Prieb serves on the Board of Delaware North Companies, the Board of the Milwaukee Brewers Community Foundation, the Board of Trustees of Phoenix Country Day School and the Advisory Board of the Diane Halle Center for Family Justice at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law; and is a member of the Arizona Women's Forum.

She continues to follow her passion to help at-risk youth and families by working with community organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club, the Florence Crittenton Teaming Up for Kids Luncheon and the Phoenix Heart Ball.

Selig-Prieb graduated magna cum laude from Tufts University in 1982 and earned a Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from Marquette University Law School in 1988. She is married to Laurel Prieb, Vice President-Western Operations & Special Projects for Major League Baseball and together they have a daughter, Natalie.
