The FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR of CARO

Caroline Rothwell Gerstein: Founder + President, CARO Marketing + CARO Studio

Caroline Rothwell Gerstein: Founder + President, CARO Marketing + CARO Studio

Caroline Rothwell Gerstein is the Founder and President of CARO Marketing as well as the Creative Director of the CARO Studio. 

What began as a political career working in environmental politics while simultaneously juggling an independent label music career led her to Los Angeles, California where she planted her roots in fashion, styling and retail. 

Caroline launched CARO Marketing in 2004 as a consulting company, after resigning from her post as Vice President at a $100M apparel business which she helped to build from the ground up.

Her credits for her creative work with designers and influencers can be attributed to her being an artist herself, understanding that without authenticity, PR falls flat and loses its edge.

2015 marked a ten year work anniversary for Caroline, working with a wide range of clients from Fortune 500 companies to emerging designers.  She celebrated a decade of CARO by opening the CARO studio loft in downtown Los Angeles. 

Today, she continues to feed her love for creativity, fashion and art though collaborations with indie artists while personally overseeing all CARO Marketing clients and strategies. 

Caroline is the mother of daughter Chloe and back-up singer to her husband and fellow musician, Stevie G. Together, they live in Hollywood, CA.
