Chairman and CEO, The Tyra Banks Company; Founder, Fierce Capital, LLC
Expanding the definition of beauty is something Tyra has always believed in, as a supermodel and as a super-businesswoman. Tyra is CEO of The Tyra Banks Company—a place where beauty meets entertainment.
An original Victoria’s Secret angel, Tyra was the first African-American model to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. For the last decade, she has been the creator and executive producer of America’s Next Top Model, the first and longest running fashion competition-based reality television series.
Most recently, Tyra created a one-of-a-kind cosmetics experience – TYRA Beauty. With a radically fierce, fresh and unique approach to the beauty industry, TYRA Beauty is powered by the strategic collision of beauty and entertainment, coined ‘Beautytainment’ by Banks. TYRA Beauty is a 100% self-funded company and is a dream near and dear to Banks’ heart with the goal of creating a legacy brand that provides anyone and everyone the opportunity to become the CEO of her or his own life.
