Foot Locker appoints new board member
New York-based specialty athletic retailer Foot Locker announced on Thursday the election of Virginia C. Drosos as a director of the board.
Drosos is currently chief executive officer of Signet Jewelers Limited, the world's largest retailer of diamond jewelry. She brings to the board extensive experience in branding, marketing, global operations, and business expansions into new product lines, retail channels, and geographies.
"We are excited to welcome Gina to our board as a new independent director," said Richard A. Johnson, chairman and chief executive officer of Foot Locker, Inc. "As the sitting CEO of a specialty retailer, Gina is a visionary and transformational leader with an entrepreneurial mindset, and a proven track record of growing and scaling global businesses through innovation.”
Drosos added, "I am excited to join Foot Locker, Inc.'s Board and work with this exceptional team to contribute to the Company's purpose to inspire and empower youth culture. I look forward to sharing my experiences, contributing to the company's future direction and growth, and building on its vision to provide unrivaled customer experiences.”
In December, the retailer launched its first proprietary womenswear brand, dubbed ‘Cozi’. The launch follows the successful debut of controlled brand launches of LCKR and capsule collections by collaborators Melody Ehsani and streetwear designer Don C.
Foot Locker operates approximately 3,000 retail stores in 28 countries across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
