Further enhancing its senior executive team, Under Armour also announced the addition of Susie McCabe as Senior Vice President, Global Retail and Jason LaRose as Senior Vice President, Global E-Commerce.

As Kevin Plank's first partner, Mr. Fulks was instrumental in building Under Armour's operations function.

As COO and President of Product, he will drive the integration of product development, design, technology and supply chain, while building on the brand's dedication to best-in-class service.

During his tenure at Under Armour, Mr. Stafford has played a vital role in driving and implementing the launch of break-through product innovations, including Charged Cotton, Charged Cotton Storm, UA coldblack and Armour Bra.  As President of North America, Mr. Stafford will build a merchandising team and capability for Under Armour North America in addition to his executive responsibility across E-Commerce, Retail, Wholesale and Retail Marketing.

"I am extremely proud to elevate two outstanding, established leaders within our organization, while also adding great new talent to our executive team," said Kevin Plank, CEO and Founder, Under Armour.  "Henry Stafford has played an instrumental role in launching our industry's most innovative apparel platforms, and Kip has provided superior leadership in product development and operations since the brand's inception and continues to drive game changing technology."

Ms. McCabe and Mr. LaRose both have impressive track records with some of the industry's top brands and retailers.  Ms. McCabe's extensive management experience includes over 16 years with Ralph Lauren Corporation, including President Factory Store Concepts, where she led the strategic direction and operation of the brand's factory stores across the US and Europe.  In her new role, Ms. McCabe will be responsible for Under Armour's brand house and factory house stores across the US and for the company's global retail strategy.
