Faye's Staff

 

The team. What can we do for you

FAYE WETZEL

Founder/CEO/CMO/Owner
Email:

Her name’s on the door.  She owns the joint, and loves every aspect of the business. Like our very own superhero, she always seems to be in two places at once. Don't be surprised if you hear her on AM radio, see her in the store that afternoon, and then catch her on TV in the evening.

Faye has five stepchildren and 11 grandchildren.

Hobbies: Reading; movies; cooking; eating; and spending time at home with Rick and their animals.

RICK WETZEL

Owner
Email:

Rick is married to business partner Faye.  After a career in technology, he has decided to make a science out of this thing we call fashion retail. So far he's realized it's more like trying to herd cats than an organized business. But little-by-little he is making progress. He also helps maintain the website. Looks pretty good, huh? Rick has two children and 5 grandchildren in Minneapolis.

Hobbies: Woodworking; wilderness camping; cooking; SCUBA diving and taking dogs Panama Jack, Emmitt, Jane to the dog park.

MICHELLE K

COO/CFO/Mequon Store Manager
Email:

Michelle works side-by-side with Rick and Faye to make sure store operations are runnin' smooth. She really keeps us on our toes. We'd say she's one tough cookie, but cookies are not her specialty. She's actually a certified cake decorator.

Hobbies: Hiking in the woods; attending her kids' sporting events; and trap shooting (just a true-blooded Wisconsin woman).

LINDA L

Head Buyer/Sales Associate/Mequon Floor Manager
Email:

Linda Lanigan heads up our buying team. We are always a step ahead of the competition with Linda at our helm. One day she can be a selling machine on the sales floor in Mequon, and the next day she is on the red eye from LA back to Mequon for hugs from her family. And then it's off to the Big Apple. When she isn’t out scouting trends she is in negotiations with vendors. I don’t think we ever recall a vendor saying "no" to our Linda. Are you getting the picture? This women is a machine!

Hobbies: Spending time with family and friends (and cooking for them- did we mention she's an amazing cook??)

JEN

Head Stylist/Visual Merchandiser
Email:

Om, om...are you feeling the zen? Jen strives for the perfect balance between the elegance and the playful in our stores. Ever wonder why the stores look so DARN good? It's because of her. Jen is our visual merchandiser. She knows how to keep things looking fresh. Olio!

Hobbies: Art; fashion; fitness; and "Making the world a more beautiful place."

CJ

Marketing Manager
Email:

CJ is a marketing and advertising graduate from UWM. She handles all of the marketing/ad biz at Faye's: TV; radio; print; fashion shows and events...you name it, she's doing it for real. No, you won't see her on camera...she's behind the scenes and chasing dreams (it's what she prefers!). There's a lot of creativity involved in the process, so she says, "It's the perfect mix of art and business."

Hobbies: Anything outdoors; running/hiking; film; and music.

CJ
ANNIE

Sales Associate
Email:

We were absolutely delighted when Annie called before the holidays to see if we needed any help. Of course we did...especially since it was Our Annie. Annie was instrumental in the early years of the Brookfield store. Then, she took a sabbatical to focus on her writing. Her passion is young adult literature, and we have no doubt she will eventually be recognized as a real talent. Move over, Hunger Games!  During her sabbatical, Annie got married (!), worked at Whole Foods, and continues to freelance as a writer for health care and other industries. 

Hobbies: Spending time with family and friends, vacationing at her lake house in Michigan!

LINDA

Sales Associate
Email:

Linda to some, but to us she's LZ. LZ loves our customers, and they love her. She really knows how to dress a customer from head to toe (she has been known to pull out her make-up kit from her days as a beauty consultant for Bobbi Brown and add the final touches). As a matter of fact, LZ continues to make over her colleagues, cosmetic shop for them and, yes,  is responsible for Faye wearing a little more blush. LZ may be small in stature, but her presence in the store is grand.  

Hobbies: Cooking (she's a foodie); and hanging out with her hubby!

LOREDANA

Assistant (Mequon)
Email:

Loredana aka "Lola" aka "Lo" studied at FIT in NYC and Columbia in Chicago before coming to MILWAUKEE to study fashion merchandising. Life as an Intern at Faye's requires A LOT of stamina, so hopefully her avid swimming skills from High School will help her out there! Lola does it all...she helps Linda write orders, she helps the receiving department, and she helps the sales staff. Now that's an intern!

Hobbies: DIY crafting; biking; spending time with fam/friends; and spontaneous road tripping!

A rose is a rose, is a rose...but our Rose is one of a kind. This lovely lady is at your service!
