During the 10 years Stacie Urbach worked at CitiBank, FGIC -- a subsidiary of GE -- and other major companies, she was pilfering right under their noses.
Two years ago Urbach waltzed off with her "loot" -- skills honed at those companies -- and used it to found her own business,
It all started when Urbach, 36, tore the heel off her brand new Jimmy Choo shoes on the way to a corporate event. A fruitless search for a heel protector prompted Urbach to make her own.
At the time, the corporate world was losing its appeal for Urbach. She had fewer days off than colleagues who had children, and undefined deadlines often cut into her personal time -- causing her to miss a John Fogerty concert on one occasion.It wasn't long before Urbach found herself living the life of a successful corporate fugitive.
