Ms. Connie Tang, CEO, Princess House. Appointed Princess House’s first woman President and CEO in early 2012, one year shy of the company’s 50th anniversary, Connie soon undertook a fresh new rebranding initiative designed to position Princess House for its next 50 years of success. A primary focus of the rebranding initiative is to infuse the company, its products and its business opportunity with new energy, relevance and freshness for the 21st century in order to attract more consultants from all walks of life, age groups and cultural backgrounds. It’s a move that reflects Connie’s understanding of the evolving, multi-cultural makeup of the U.S. and the power of Princess House to reach an increasingly diverse population. As a respected 50-year-old company with a consultant and consumer base that is three-quarters Latino, Princess House is uniquely positioned to take the lead in offering independent business opportunities to all women. The numbers show the company is already realizing results. In 2013, Massachusetts-based Princess House reached a record-breaking number of 25,000 consultants.
