Jennifer Woo is the chairman and CEO of Lane Crawford group, and daughter of real estate tycoon Peter Woo. She took over this role after proving her worth as president of Lane Crawford and today oversees the family’s retail group, which comprises Lane Crawford, Joyce, Pedder Group, and a brand management and distribution arm, the ImagineX Group. Being at the helm of this group of retailers makes her one of the most powerful (and definitely one of the youngest) retailers in Asia. With the group’s extensive reach over much of China and strong presence in SE Asia, Jennifer shapes this continent’s face of retail. Not a task for the weak at heart.
