Kat DePizzo is the President of Justice Design Lab where she leads a team of designers, artists and marketing professionals who create and market all products for the Justice brand that are sold through Walmart and ShopJustice.com. With an extensive retail background of 20+ years, Kat is a dedicated leader, brand creator, and product visionary. Her passion for cutting edge product and innovative design with a customer focused lens have led brands to new levels of success in retail brick and mortar, e-commerce, franchise, and license.
Her retail career started at a young age working in sales and visual for brands such as Levi Strauss & Co. and Max Studio. She earned her degree from The Ohio State University in Textiles & Clothing, Product Development and went on to work for Abercrombie & Fitch for 5 years, during which she played key roles in the successful launch of Rhuel No.925 and a booming business in Abercrombie Women’s design. After working with several independent brands, she eventually planted her feet with Limited Too Brands in the early 2000’s. Fast forward 15 years and Kat successfully developed, built, and expanded the Justice brand to its’ peak as the #1 tween brand in the United States.
Kat has always been a leader who feels the most success when her team thrives. Witnessing an individual find their purpose is her mission, and Kat constantly works to build those around her up. Beyond work, Kat volunteers in her community with schools and organizations focused on diversity, inclusion and mentorship, investing her time to generate more for future generations.
Justice was sold and stores liquidated during the COVID pandemic in 2020. After being purchased by Bluestar Alliance, Kat relaunched Justice at Walmart with a small but mighty team working remotely out of her garage, eventually relocated offices and opened a new headquarters in Columbus, OH. Justice is now in 4300+ stores in the US and Canada along with shopjustice.com and international.
