Annie Chandler Wang    

CPO & Creative Director, Her Campus Media

Annie Wang met Stephanie Kaplan Lewis and Windsor Hanger while they were undergraduates at Harvard through running Harvard College’s lifestyle and fashion magazine. Through their work on this student publication, they saw the potential for something even bigger and better, and spent spring 2009 developing the business plan for Her Campus. After countless nights working in Harvard’s Quincy House dining hall until 3AM (or later!), they went on to enter and win the i3 Innovation Challenge, Harvard College’s business plan competition, in March 2009. Stephanie, Windsor, and Annie spent summer 2009 living together in a super tiny apartment in New York City, doing internships while preparing Her Campus for its launch in September 2009.

Annie drives innovation across all of Her Campus’s multimedia platforms, including HerCampus.com, HerCampusMedia.com, College Fashion Week, the Her Campus Blogger Network, the Study Break email newsletter, and the Her Campus Shop. She leads creative, technical, and user experience strategy to build products that support and amplify Her Campus’s unique offerings while serving its 5.9+ million users in a fresh and cohesive way and oversees the manifestation of the iconic Her Campus brand.

Annie has been named to Inc.’s 30 Under 30, Businessweek’s 25 Under 25, Forbes’s All-Star Student Entrepreneurs, Glamour’s 20 Amazing Young Women, Boston Business Journal’s Innovation All-Stars, and The Boston Globe’s 25 Most Stylish Bostonians. She has served as a National Women’s Health Week Ambassador, McDonald’s Education Workshop tour speaker, and a MassChallenge Alumna-in-Residence, and she is an entrepreneurship mentor with BUILD Boston. In 2010, Annie took a leave of absence from her undergraduate studies at Harvard College to work on Her Campus full time. She was studying visual and environmental studies and psychology, and freelancing as a graphic designer and web developer. In her spare time, Annie enjoys decorating her apartment, playing video games with her husband, trying different types of granola, accumulating gift wrapping supplies, discovering efficiency hacks, and dreaming about hosting a tea party in the apparently never-arriving future.
