As of March 8, Martinez-Galindo will succeed Dave Kardesh, who is retiring, and will report to Thomas Edwards, EVP, chief financial officer and chief operating officer.

Most recently, Martinez-Galindo was the CIO of Walgreens, where he is credited for leading a comprehensive transformation of the company’s retail digital platform. 

Earlier in his career, he held multiple CIO roles at General Motors, where he lived and worked in Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, as well as CIO of Europe, based in London.

"Alejandro brings significant experience leading global retail digital transformations, large-scale enterprise systems implementations and data analytics innovation. His strong track record over a broad range of industries and focus on driving business results will help accelerate Capri Holdings continued digital and ecommerce evolution,” Edwards said. 

Martinez-Galindo added: “I am incredibly excited to join Capri Holdings and look forward to helping implement the next generation of digital innovation at the Company. Building on the dramatic increase in consumer engagement Capri’s luxury brands are currently experiencing, I believe there is a unique opportunity to accelerate this trend leveraging the convergence of technology and customer experience across all touch points. I am honored to have the opportunity to be a part of Capri’s journey in this mission.”

Capri’s owns brands such as Michael Kors, Versace and Jimmy Choo. Last month, the company announced third quarter results that beat expectations, but forecasted a loss for the current quarter due to virus-driven store closures in Europe.

The company reported a third-quarter net attributable profit of $179 million, or $1.18 per share, down from $210 million, or $1.38 per share, a year earlier.
