CEO and Founder
Gwynnie Bee/CaaStle
Christine Hunsicker is the CEO and Founder of Gwynnie Bee, the pioneering, size-inclusive apparel rental service, and CaaStle, a revolutionary B2B technology platform empowering retailers and fashion brands to strategically participate in a new sharing economy.

As consumers have increasingly embraced a shared economy in everything from music to transportation, Hunsicker identified a clear and present appetite for a shared economy for fashion and apparel. In 2011, she introduced Gwynnie Bee, the first everyday fashion rental subscription service enabling women to discover and experience a great clothing without limitations. By leveraging technology, Hunsicker pioneered the Clothing as a Service (CaaS) model, blending traditional ownership with a new form of access. Launched in spring, 2018, CaaStle is powering multiple retail brands with its turnkey, fully managed service to offer CaaS to their customers. In six short years, Hunsicker’s vision of creating a new economy for apparel is in full swing.

A 1999 graduate of Princeton, Hunsicker quickly rose to a leadership role as the COO of the startup Right Media. Right Media transformed the ad exchange industry, an accomplishment that led Yahoo! to purchase the company and its technologies for $850M in 2007. Hunsicker maintained her entrepreneurial spirit by joining Drop.io as COO. Soon thereafter, Facebook acquired the company.

With an outstanding pedigree of leading successful startups, Hunsicker has been recognized in Inc. Magazine’s Most Impressive Women Entrepreneurs, Crain’s 40 Under 40 annual power list as well as the National Retail Federation’s List of People Shaping Retail’s Future.
