Leading Ladies 2019: Nicki Maher

CEO & Co-Founder, Ella Stein


Nicki Maher believes all women should have their own version of “having it all.” A former Alex and Ani executive, she left a career at the nation’s fastest-growing retail brand to find a better work-life balance. “You could say I hung up my bangles in pursuit of a more mindful life,” Nicki says with a laugh. “I shifted from being a career executive to being an executive mama.” That shift in priorities - and taking some time to focus on her two children - made all the difference.

After a year of independent brand consulting, Nicki realized that one of her clients had an opportunity that seemed custom-tailored for her. She soon accepted a position as CEO and co-founder with fine jewelry company ELLA STEIN. The revolutionary brand - locally based with global goals - has a noble international mission of uplifting people with sustainable sourcing and transparent pricing.

As CEO and visionary, Nicki enthusiastically leads and mentors a team of driven creatives. “I like to think of myself as the Bill Belichick to the Ella Stein brand. That’s the fun part – com- ing up with the play-by-play to keep the communication clear and motivat- ing, and to keep the entire team and brand growing,” Nicki says, adding that she’s looking forward to their upcoming wholesale market launch. “I wholeheart- edly believe in this company, and I’m so excited about where we’re heading.”
