The agenda for this morning's call includes an overview of the year…”  Ralph Lauren’s earning call starts with these words from Evren Doğan Kopelman every three months. The Ralph Lauren Corporation is an American, publicly traded holding company headquartered in New York City. Through its subsidiaries, it designs, markets and sells men's, women's and children's apparel, accessories, fragrances and home furnishings to customers worldwide. The company’s 2014 revenue was $7.4 billion dollars.  Its shares are held by 422 institutions.

Evren Doğan Kopelman, the Corporate Vice President of Investor Relations at Ralph Lauren, informs investors about the fashion giant and writes analysis reports. Kopelman is the top ranked retail analyst, according to the Wall Street Journal.

She graduated from Robert College and she studied Industrial Engineering at Stanford University. While she was in the university, she did not intend to have a career in finance but after graduating from the prestigious school, she started to work for Robertson Stephens as an analyst and covered specialty retail stocks from 1998 to 2002. After leaving the company, she received an MBA in finance from another very prestigious institution, the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. She also holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.

When she graduated, she was very close to the world’s finance capital, New York, and found a position at JP Morgan as a senior equity research analyst covering specialty retail and apparel. In 2009, she transferred to another corporate American bank, Wells Fargo Securities.
