BOARDS & GOVERNANCE
Kay is a key member and mentor on the board of directors for many diverse sector companies.
Every corporate board, public or private has its own personality, its own cultures. Navigating the cultural process on any board of any size takes both intellectual and emotional IQ.
Having served on boards for over 20 years, Kay Koplovitz has learned how to focus board discussion for positive outcome. These lessons apply across industries even though business may have quite different financial models.
Policy and regulations continually change and present challenges and opportunities to board members. Kay uses her experience as a corporate board member to promote an open and transparent discussion among members. She strongly supports diversity on boards, and is an advocate of putting more women on boards, to broaden discussions from group think to group dynamics.

Kate Spade & Co is home to some of America’s finest brands. It was born in May 2012, growing out of what was Liz Claiborne Inc. Kate Spade & Company debuted on February 26, 2014, but the initial sparks formed far earlier in the minds of two imaginative and driven women. Liz Claiborne (in 1976) and Kate Spade (in 1993), each frustrated they couldn’t find what they believed women were looking for in the marketplace, took matters into their hands and founded their own successful companies. And so the spirit of our company was born.Today, Kate Spade & Company is three global lifestyle brands with more than 200 shops in over 20 countries, and distribution in over 450 premiere department stores around the world.
