Fast Company’s Danielle Sacks has just knocked out an extensive profile of Julie Roehm, the “Scarlet Woman of Bentonville” whose star turn at Chrysler was subsequently tarnished by her scandal-ridden, lightning-quick tenure at Wal-Mart.
Sacks takes a looksee into Roehm’s life a couple of years after the alleged shady dealings with agencies and love affair with a subordinate led to her downfall at the corporate mega-chain.
Still stuck in Arkansas, Roehm nevertheless has recently launched a consultancy called /Meta and taken on contract work with Credit Suisse. With this kind of momentum, here’s hoping her stint as a judge on CBS show Jingles finally takes off.
