Ms. Tsang is based in Hong Kong. With Ms. Tsang's appointment, the company's board will expand from 10 to 11 members.

“Katherine's successful track record leading and growing a multinational business in China's flourishing consumer market makes her a tremendous resource to our board as we embark on a new phase of international expansion,” said Glenn Murphy, Gap Inc. Chairman and CEO. “She will also bring a unique dimension to our board as one of the top women executives in China.”

Ms. Tsang, 53, is a leading executive at Standard Chartered PLC, an international bank with more than $430 billion in assets, headquartered in the United Kingdom with the majority of its operations in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

“I'm excited by the opportunity to join Gap Inc. especially now as it prepares to open its doors in China,” said Ms. Tsang. “I hope to be able to contribute to the long-term success and shareholder value of the company.”

Ms. Tsang continued: "On a personal note, having spent a great deal of time in North America, I deeply admire the company's brands, cultural relevance and commitment to social responsibility. It will be my honor to contribute in some way to building upon the legacy of the company's founders, Doris and Don Fisher.”

Over the past two decades with Standard Chartered, Ms. Tsang has demonstrated strong and innovative leadership.
