A mamma boss of Burberry

“First of all I'm a mother. Secondly, I am the chief executive of Burberry” Angela Ahrendts has clear ideas, married, three teenage children and a professional role that places her among the most important UK managers (along with Christopher Bailey, Ahrendts has relaunched the famous fashion house to the highest level) .

In an interview with the 'Sunday Times', the fifty-three year old born in Indiana reveals her recipe for life: giving things the right priorities. "I do not want to be a great business woman without being a great mother and wife," she confided, explaining however that this decision involves many sacrifices: only one night out a week, business trips only if they end on Friday evening, no gym, waking up at 4.35 in the morning. Full availability for the office then, but not absolute availability: "I do not want to look back in a few years, to find myself regretting the time spent neglecting my family."
