Karen Wagner and Erica Baird founded Lustre after they retired from their successful careers as corporate lawyers. Wagner was the first female litigation partner at a major New York City law firm and Baird was the first female partner in the General Counsel’s office of a Big Six accounting firm. Lustre is designed to change attitudes about older women and retirement and create a new picture of what retirement can look like. In addition to Lustre, Wagner’s retirement includes obtaining her pilot’s license; Baird’s includes taking design courses. They both serve on nonprofit boards.
