Annastasia V.

Education

Career

Early in her career, Seebohm founded and sold an e-commerce property business in London.[4] She also worked in the Greek office of Quintessentially Group and later joined the group's headquarters in London in 2012. Alongside founders Ben Elliot and Aaron Simpson, she contributed in the group's international growth by expanding its services.[5][6] For example, in the summer of 2017, Seebohm was part of the team that built an experiential program for notable brands Louis Vuitton and Moet Hennessy LVMH in Hawaii.[7] In the early 2016, she moved to New York to become C.E.O. of the US operations and also in charge of offices in the Americas.[8] Her knowledge of luxury trends and experiences helped her triple the group's revenues. From early 2018, Seebohm was appointed Global CEO of the company and responsible of all aspects of the company from operations to strategic growth plans.[9][10]

Annastasia is an advocate for the advancement of women in leadership and contributes in coaching young executives and organizing a support network.[5][11]

Quintessentially group

While in college, Seebohm read an interview of founder Elliot in Vogue magazine on Quintessentially.[12][13] That was the defining moment in her choice of career path.[5][14][15] Through various significant positions, she contributed to the growth of the company by building and developing partnerships.[16][17][18] As a result, in less than eight years, she moved from a position of Assistant in the group’s office in Athens, to Global Chief Executive.[9][19]

Recognition

Seebohm has been recognized for her contribution to the luxury lifestyle industry by several notable media outlets. For example, Forbes magazine has dubbed her the “Queen of luxury” and named her among the “great luxury women leaders of our time”.[20] Luxury Daily, a luxury business publication, included her in its “Women to watch 2018” list[7] and About Time's “Female Entrepreneur To Watch 2019” lists of most influencal women of the year.[21] Seebohm is member of the committee for YPO (Young Presidents' Organization), an international leadership community of chief executives. She has also been featured in other notable media outlets including Vanity Fair, Business Insider, CEO Magazine,[8] Harper's Bazaar, HuffPost, GQ and WWD[16].

Personal life
