Ralph Lauren announced Thursday changes to its executive management team in keeping with their recent shift to a global brand management model. Jackwyn Nemerov, president and chief operating officer, will continue in her role, but other key executive positions will realign to meet the requirements of company changes.
Christopher H. Peterson, previously executive vice president, chief administrative officer, and chief financial officer, will now serve in the newly created position of president, global brands. Peterson will bring the experience he gained at Procter & Gamble turning organizations into global brands.
Mitchell A. Kosh, previously executive vice president of human resources, has been promoted to executive vice president and chief administrative officer. He will lead the integration of key operational sectors in keeping with the company’s restructuring.
Robert L. Madore, previously senior vice president of finance, has been promoted to senior vice president and CFO. The number of key financial and operational roles Madore has held while at the company gives him an understanding that makes him uniquely qualified for this position.
“We have an experienced and proven management team in place,” said Ralph Lauren, chairman and CEO of Ralph Lauren Corporation. “As we move to a new global organizational structure, these executive leadership changes will allow us to maximize the potential of our brands and drive global growth.”
