Dana Levine claims her passion for retail began at infancy. Her father worked in the industry for over 25 years and her brother is currently a vice president in merchandising.
Dana’s first exposure to retail was as a fitting room specialist for the GAP. After graduating college, Dana completed the Ralph Lauren Executive Training Program. She worked in the men’s clothing /furnishing and ladies black label buying offices. Most recently, Dana was with Loro Piana for almost 7 years as a senior merchant managing the ladies ready to wear, accessories, and children’s division. She joined Kirk Palmer Associates in 2014 and her experience with buying, merchandising, planning, stores, and passion for retail enable her to understand and manage a client’s needs.
Dana lives in NYC with her husband and 2 daughters, and they enjoy spending time in Central Park scouting out the numerous playgrounds. Dana considers herself a dedicated shopper and has been known to sneak new purchases in over-sized bags by her husband. Unfortunately for Dana, her husband is exceptionally observant.
