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.”
