Simone Xavier, a Brazilian-native and veterinarian with a PhD in Molecular Biology, was a professor at the University of Minnesota when she noticed a gap in the then-beauty market for affordable, quality makeup brushes accessible to men and women across the globe. It was then that she decided to upturn the industry by creating Sigma Beauty. Now a globally-recognized beauty company dedicated to creating unique solutions of the highest quality, Sigma Beauty is an award-winning brand and favorite among makeup artists, editors and industry influencers. As the CCO, Simone Xavier continues to push the brand to the forefront of innovation through patented brush care solutions, unique brush designs, and high-quality makeup.

Echo Huang, CFA, CFP®, CPA is a wealth manager with a remarkable life story and a passion for finance. She uses her experiences (as an immigrant from China and as an entrepreneur) to inspire more people to make smart, informed decisions that will help them achieve their dreams. After working as Senior Tax Specialist at KPMG for almost four years, she realized she enjoyed personal financial planning a lot more than preparing tax returns. As a result, she decisively changed her career path from that of a tax CPA to becoming a financial advisor in 2000. She now owns and operates Echo Wealth Management, LLC, a boutique investment management firm in Plymouth, serving successful professionals and entrepreneurs across the country. She’s also proudly expanded her firm, bringing on three associate wealth managers to start expanding services to millennials.
