Audrey McLoghlin, Founder of Frank & Eileen

A former engineer with a heart for entrepreneurship, Audrey McLoghlin founded Frank & Eileen in 2009. Her goal was simple: to reinvent the women’s button-up using the Italian fabrics too often reserved for men. With inspiration taken from her Irish roots and named in honor of her beloved grandparents, Frank & Eileen has grown slowly and intentionally from its best Italian-fabric-in-the-world-obsessed beginnings to a woman-owned, woman-led leader in sustainability. To this day, Audrey owns 100% of her business and considers her employees, customers and community her true stakeholders.

Audrey leads with intentionality. A determination to act as a force for good in the fashion industry has led to Frank & Eileen attaining B Corp certification, holding the highest score for any woman-owned globally recognized apparel brand in the United States. After a decade of success and incredible growth, Audrey continues to build her “force for good” legacy, focusing her second decade as a Founder and CEO on fostering new and exciting opportunities for female entrepreneurship. For Audrey, entrepreneurship is a powerful driver of positive change and the biggest impact she hopes to make is helping more women take their rightful seat at the entrepreneurship table. A firm belief in “educate our girls, change our world” led Audrey to establish the Frank & Eileen Giving Pledge, donating $10 million over 10 years to educate the women entrepreneurs of tomorrow. To date, the pledge has funded a series of scholarships and endowments to America’s top entrepreneurship programs for women at educational institutions, including Babson College, MIT, and Stanford, alongside founding an incredible incubator and accelerator program inside a 7-12th grade girls’ school in Los Angeles. Despite this extraordinary level of progress and growth, for Audrey, the sky is the limit when it comes to education and entrepreneurship. Instead, she’s just getting started.
