Jackie Ferrari is CEO of American Fashion Network (AFN), leading a multi-generational team in the apparel business for close to two decades. Ferrari founded the company 17 years ago and has grown into three states including New York, California, and Wisconsin. A native Californian, Ferrari makes her home in Skaneateles, NY and is the mother of three, grandmother of three, and stepmom of one; all while driving a Made in America movement in both the federal government procurement space and with large American Corporations.
Ferrari is deeply engaged in the bi-partisan movement to balance global manufacturing by increasing Made in America and a movement from Asia to the Western Hemisphere. Ferrari led her team to exit China and as a vanguard in this effort, she is writing a bill, with support of the Congress and the Senate to help corporations and institutions join her in balancing global trade and manufacturing.
Serving the war-fighter by creating quality, innovative apparel for the USMC and the Air Force, her sights are set on the Army, NASA, Navy and Coast Guard. “Serving our war-fighter is an honor and we do it with gratitude and pride,” says Ferrari. Currently, in addition to serving America’s top retail brands with speed and innovation, Ferrari and her team serve large corporations with corporate apparel, uniforms and corporate gifting and swag.
