Susan Lyne, the chairman of Gilt Groupe, started her career as many of Silicon Valley‘s brightest stars did: Like Gates, Jobs and Zuckerberg, she dropped out of college.

After stints at George Washington University, University of California at Berkeley and a year at art school, Lyne quit college, took a job with a public interest ad agency and, she says, “never looked back.”

Lyne’s journey to the top of Gilt, a members-only website selling discounted luxury items to a cult-like following of devout fans, came by way of a career in media that spanned a slew of platforms and publications. She has transitioned from the world of print publishing — she was managing editor at the Village Voice and founding editor of Premiere — to broadcast television, where she spent nearly 10 years with ABC and served as the CEO of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, to the web, joining Gilt Groupe as CEO in 2008.
