Biography

Raegan Moya-Jones is the Co-Founder of Saint Luna, a premium moonshine brand rich with complexity, style, and a smooth drinkability. Saint Luna’s transformation of a classic American spirit has won numerous awards, both in US and International competitions.

Before founding Saint Luna, Raegan Co-Founded aden + anais in 2006. A globally-recognized baby lifestyle brand, aden + anais is known for its high-quality design muslin swaddles and baby products. While overseeing the growth of aden + anais, Raegan continued to work full-time in her sales role at The Economist Group until 2009. At that time, and as the brand’s sole owner, she felt it best to focus on aden + anais in a full-time capacity. She eventually sold the company in 2013 and continued to serve as its CEO until 2017.

Raegan’s tenure at aden + anais was hailed for its inventiveness and vision. She was named one of EY’s Entrepreneurs of the Year, one of the most prestigious business awards in the world. Raegan’s leadership and the success of aden + anais led to many other awards, including SmartCEO’s 2015 Future 50 list and, for three years straight, Crain’s New York Business’s Fast 50 list. Crain’s highlights New York’s most successful and innovative companies for their growth, strategies, and success.

Earlier this year, Raegan published “What It Takes: How I Built a $100 Million Business Against the Odds." In it, she recounts her entrepreneurial journey from the kitchen table to running a 100-million-dollar global business. Raegan is also on the Board of Directors for Hopeland, a nonprofit created to create solutions and build new partnerships to prevent family separation, reunite children who are separated from their families, and mobilize a movement of families to support children who are growing up outside of family
