With Anderson’s election, Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s Board expands to ten directors, four of whom are female.

She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration with a minor in accounting and economics from Elon University and earned her MBA at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. chairman of the Board, Terry Burman, said, “With Kerrii’s impressive leadership track record, deep expertise in finance, operations and strategy, and significant consumer-facing public company management and board experience, she will bring a fresh perspective to our Board. We are excited to welcome Kerrii to A&F and look forward to working together as we continue to drive the Company and its brands forward.”

Kerrii said, “I am honoured to join the Board of Directors of this storied company. I look forward to working together with Fran, Terry, and the rest of the Board and the management team, at this exciting time in the company’s evolution.” (GK)
