Career History: CEO, Panther Swag LLC, 2018-present;

Marlene’s Beauty, 2017-2018

Marlene Ferguson, CEO of Panther, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of men and women’s fashion.

Ms. Ferguson knew firsthand the power looking and feeling good could have on an individual. It’s one of the main reasons that she fell in love with fashion, and with her current men and women’s fashion line, Panther,  she sees the positive effect her clothing has on her customer’s lives. With a background in fashion and software design, she married her skills to launch her business venture in 2018. Prior to that, she owned and operated Marlene’s Beauty, which focused on women’s clothing but felt rebranding to Panther was a stronger fit to also cater to menswear.

Ms. Ferguson considers her most notable achievement to not giving up. When things don’t work out as planned she is able to address the issues and find solutions. She always set goals for herself. In all facets of her life, Ms. Ferguson is a driven and committed person. She is a single mother who did everything for herself. She brings perseverance, persistence, and determination to every task at hand. When not working hard, she spends a lot of time reading books, learning, and imagining new designs to continue impressing her clientele.
