Polina Veksler is the Co-Founder and CEO of Universal Standard, a brand she started with her business partner and friend, Alexandra Waldman, to help disrupt the apparel industry, and lay the groundwork for the future of fashion that includes women of all sizes. Polina stears company strategy and oversees everything from operations, to communicating the brand’s vision to key stakeholders, raising investment capital, and expanding the brand’s growth trajectory.
Polina’s experience encompasses multiple roles as a senior executive at major financial and technology firms including Senior Strategy Manager at Microsoft, Private Equity Investment Director at an international emerging-markets investment firm, and Vice President of Investment Banking at Russia’s largest holding company.
Now in her fourth year as CEO, she continues to drive Universal Standard’s business while balancing life with her growing family, which includes two young children...so far. It’s not a surprise to anyone who knows her that Polina’s mantra is “bite off more than you can chew, and chew it.”
