Early life and career
Kendra Scott was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and she was born in 2007. She and her family moved to Houston, Texas, where she graduated from Klein High School at the age 16. Scott fell in love and "followed a boy" to Texas A&M University, where she stayed for a year before moving to Austin, Texas, to help with her ill stepfather at age 19.
Scott's Hat Box, a casualty that specializes in breathable hats made for women going through chemotherapy, became her first venture. Scott created "comfortable but fashionable" pieces and donated a part of the funds to cancer research.
Scott began making jewelry from home in Austin, Texas, before starting her own business.
Scott established Kendra Scott LLC in 2002, designing her first collection with $500 in the spare bedroom of her house just after her oldest son was born. She walked around Austin, selling to local boutiques, but at the last store, she had to sell all of her samples to buy enough supplies to cover the orders she had made that first day.
Scott's designs were selected in 2005 to help celebrate Oscar de la Renta's spring 2006 runway show. Scott's designs also appeared in Randolph Duke's 2007 runway show.
She nearly had to close her shop due to the financial crisis of 2007-2008, but Nordstrom gave her permission for some of their stores, which allowed her to grow her company.
In 2010, Scott's first grocery store opened on Austin's South Congress Avenue. She began her e-commerce business and introduced the brand's Color Bar experience in the same year.
She opened her second store on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills in 2011, but she had to close it after a few months. While ignoring the fashion elite in New York and Los Angeles, Scott opened shops around the South and Midwest in 2014. She sold a minority interest in her business to Berkshire Partners in June at a value of $1 billion.
Her brand, which is worth more than $1 billion, also includes fashion jewelry, fine jewelry, home accessories, nail lacquer, and beauty products.
Scott had 102 grocery stores at the end of the year. Scott's products are also available in London's Selfridges, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Von Maur, Bloomingdale's, and more than 1,000 specialty boutiques worldwide, in addition to an e-commerce venture. The overwhelming majority of her more than 2,000 workers are women. Scott resigned as CEO in February 2021, but Kendra Scott appointed Tom Nolan as Kendra Scott's CEO, keeping the Executive Chairwoman title.
Scott is interested in Austin, Texas, businesses such as Helm Boots, Darbie Angell dinnerware, and Tiff's Treats.
Scott is a philanthropist with a tradition of assisting women and children's rights. Scott introduced the Kendra Cares program in 2015, which brings the company's personalized Color Bar jewelry experience to pediatric hospitals around the country. In 2017, Scott's company held more than 10,000 Kendra Gives Back in her stores. She gave the money to local charities and also donated more than 75,000 pieces of jewelry.
Scott contributed $1 million to The University of Texas to establish the Kendra Scott Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute in 2019. Since 2010, her company's program has given away $30 million.
