Just days since signing a 4 year extended contract to be the face and ambassador of Myer, Jennifer Hawkins was beaming at the Spring/Summer 09 collection launch.
While most models dream of a job like this, Jen is achieving it and much more. With her new swimsuit label called Cozi, which Jen designs exclusively to Myer, and her other commitments; TV presenter for Channel 7 and contracts with Lovable, Covergirl and Audi, Jen is set to be quite the contender in this year’s BRW Top 50 Entertainers list.
The former Miss Universe 2004 will reportedly earn more than $1 million per annum from the extended contract and has been given a large portion of shares in the company. This comes just days after Myer releases a 14.8 percent rise in full-year earnings and a whopping $109 million net profit earning for 2009.
With 65 stores across Australia compared with 36 for main rival David Jones, Myer looks set to complete its 50-month plan to turn around the business and is due to float on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) before the busy Christmas period.
