Lindsay Kaplan

What began as an idea to drive more women into power and keep them there is now a $1.1 billion unicorn with a national network of over 15,000 executive women who collectively manage $220 billion of the U.S. economy. Lindsay, co-founder of Chief, turned a simple idea into the most powerful network of executive women in the world. Today, over 60% of Fortune 100 companies have Chief members in their ranks, and the company’s waitlist is over 60,000 women. “Chief is a safe space for executive women to connect and support each other,” she says. “I am so proud to work on a platform that prioritizes inclusivity, intersectional feminism, and trust.”

Prior to founding Chief, Lindsay worked in communications and marketing at Oxford University Press, Time Out New York, and ELLE. She jumped into advertising at Publicis before taking a sharp turn into Silicon Alley to bring numerous startups to market. Lindsay has spent the majority of her career leading marketing for high-growth startups, including Casper, where she shot a commercial with Michael Rapaport, built an insomnia chatbot, and published a magazine with McSweeney’s

She has been named a New York Times DealBook Groundbreaker, one of Business Insider's Most Innovative CMOs in the World, and one of Ad Age’s Leading Women. Lindsay is based in New York City, and is a self-described feminist, devout Upper West Sider, mom of two, dog person, and time travel enthusiast.
