Cynthia has always been a lover of jewellery and luxury goods. Before founding Covett, she had over 20 years of experience working with global organizations on large-scale change including cultural, digital and agile transformations. She worked with clients helping senior teams define a clear vision and strategy and then build the organizational capability required to enable that strategy.
Her company, Expressworks International, moved her to London in 2013 to expand her practice area globally. In six years, she built a multimillion dollar European business, while being responsible for Account Management and Business Development of a global practice. Earlier in her career, Cynthia was a founding team member of the Innovative MBA progam, Haas@Work (UC Berkeley Institute of Innovation). For six years she coached MBA students through the innovation process as they consulted with corporate clients including HotWire, Facebook, Cisco, Visa, Panasonic, Virgin America and McKesson. This work continuously stretched her to help her teams come up with innovative solutions and she was also constantly generating business ideas for start-ups. The Covett idea was planted in her head quite some time ago and has evolved over a period of time to the Covett vision today.
Cynthia recently became an Acredited Jewellery Professional certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). She also holds a dual MBA with Honors in Finance from Columbia University and in Marketing from UC Berkeley Haas School of Business. In addition, she holds a Masters’ degree in Organization Development from the University of San Francisco.
