Her role was expanded to include responsibility for global logistics and distribution and during her tenure; Henry built teams across IT, distribution and logistics that contributed to lululemon's historical growth.

While at the company, Henry built strategic vendor relationships and led establishment of the company's ecommerce foundation that contributed revenue growth of more than 300 per cent.

“The appointment of Kathryn to the board is an important first step in the implementation of changes that are needed with respect to culture and knowledge of technical vertical retailing,” Chip Wilson said.

“Kathryn is intimately familiar with the company, having served as CIO and SVP Distribution Logistics and understands both the company's business and the importance of its culture,” Wilson too added.
