Gap Inc announced that John Ermatinger, president of Old Navy International is leaving the company, effective July 29. The company also reiterated its intention of expanding Old Navy outside North America, with the opening of its first store in Japan slated by the end of 2012.

Ermatinger recently took on the position to establish Old Navy International, after the company brought together its international operations into one division, run out of London and led by Stephen Sunnucks. Earlier, Ermatinger served as president of Asia Pacific for Gap Inc., overseeing directly operated stores for the Gap and Banana Republic brands and Outlet channels in Japan and China.

“I'm grateful for John's leadership and commitment in helping to drive the international expansion over the years,” said Glenn Murphy, chairman and CEO of Gap Inc. “John has developed our brands to a strong position and our customers respond favorably with each subsequent store opening across Asia.”

Gap Inc. today announced that Lorenzo Moretti from its international division in London and Abinta Malik from its Old Navy headquarters in San Francisco will jointly lead the work to bring Old Navy stores to millions of new customers outside North America.

Moretti leads International business development and operations, after serving as the co-leader of the company's 2010 entry into China. Previously, he led expansion efforts for Tesco and Marks & Spencer. Malik leads merchandising for Old Navy's kids and baby divisions, and previously oversaw the online unit for the brand.

“It is exciting to see the next generation of leaders step up and into roles contributing to the growth of the company,” added Murphy. “Old Navy products became available online in many countries earlier this year, and quickly became our best sellers online in most of those markets. It's that kind of interest and excitement that signals the tremendous opportunities for Old Navy outside North America.”
