“The Dockers brand changed the way men wore pants 25 years ago and has earned a large, loyal and passionate consumer following through years of great products and service. And now, a new generation of young consumers is discovering the brand for the first time,” said Mr. Ellison. “I'm very excited to have this opportunity to add my experience building global brands to the Dockers story."
Mr. Ellison replaces Anne Rohosy who was recently appointed Executive Vice President and President, Commercial Operations Americas and Europe for LS&Co.
