About Olivia: The formidable Olivia Mariotti is the founder and CEO of REM- Ruini e Mariotti, an advertising agency specialising in fashion and luxury based in Rome. REM has become one of Europe’s most successful advertising and marketing firms, with major blue chip clients such as Valentino, Gucci and Bulgari. Olivia was born and bred in Italy, a champion horseback rider from the age of six to twenty-two. Her intrinsic desire for speed and challenge has been a constant influence in both her professional career and non-profit activities. Olivia’s unique passion and enthusiasm for life and love, along with her extraordinary success, brought her to last year’s Cash & Rocket tour. This year, for the 2013 tour, Olivia has returned to the Cash & Rocket organization in order to infuse the sensational group of 70 women with her astounding compassion, drive and joie de vivre.
About Katy: Katy is an entrepeneur, actress, film producer, filmmaker and previously one of the most prolific agents in the fashion photography field. A dynamic and energetic mother of two teenage boys. Katy has a great fondness for fast cars and known for her great visual design of interiors and architecture, all featured in many A-list editorials. This includes one of the most beautiful houses on the Kenyan island of Lamu, where she is involved in sponsoring tuition and fund raising for schools in her local community. One of her memorable moments is working with Woody Allen and being kissed by Anthony Hopkins, (ending up on the cutting room floor!!!)
This duo of remarkable ladies has come together once again to participate in their second Cash & Rocket tour together. Last year, during the 2012 tour, Olivia and Katy's revved engine could be heard from miles away. This year, the two women can be spotted on tour in the same red jumpsuits, with the same smiles, in the same outfits and with the same vibrant energy. The only difference is their car due to the fact that their '70s Jaguar xjs was sold during last year's Cash & Rocket auction!
