Victoria's Secret is a subsidiary of Limited Brands, which is run by Leslie Wexner. Lori Greenly is the CEO of Victoria's Secret stores, and Sharen Turney is the CEO of the entire brand.
Limited Brands is a publicly traded company (NYSE LTD). In 2011 they reported $10.3 billion in revenue, $850 million in net income, $6.1 billion assets, $1.8 billion in equity, and $1.5 billion in operating income.
Victoria's Secret was founded by Roy and Gaye Raymond in 1977. The first store was opened in San Francisco, CA, and was inspired by an uncomfortable experience that Roy had when buying lingerie for his wife.
Initially, Victoria's Secret was targeted towards male customers.The concept was to create a store where men could comfortably purchase lingerie for their wives or girlfriends. The initial concept was moderately successful, but by the early 80s the company was headed towards bankruptcy.
In 1982, Limited Brands purchased Victoria's Secret from Roy Raymond for $4 million. At the time, the brand consisted of only 3 stores and a catalog. Limited Brands pivoted the idea of the store, and started marketing towards female customers instead of male customers. Within five years, there were more than 340 Victoria's Secret stores, and the catalog was one of the most successful in the world.
Today, there are more than 1,000 Victoria's Secret stores throughout the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom.
