Cherokee Global Brands, a global brand marketing platform that manages a growing portfolio of fashion and lifestyle brands, has named Patti Johnson to the company’s board of directors. Johnson brings to Cherokee's board of directors over thirty years of financial and accounting experience at both public and private companies within the retail sector.

Johnson began serving as director and chair of the Audit Committee effective April 26, 2019.

"As we continue to grow and enhance our company for future success, it is essential that we add new skillsets to our board. The appointment of Patti Johnson falls right in-line with this goal, and we are honoured to welcome her to our Board," said Henry Stupp, chief executive officer. "Patti joins our board at an exceptional time in the company's history, as we shift from a direct-to-retail licensing model to one that embraces both wholesale and retail partnerships. Her prior experience managing the financial and accounting operations for large, global retail operations will be a true asset to our team, and we look forward to benefitting from her deep financial expertise and guidance."

Johnson brings to Cherokee's board of directors over thirty years of financial and accounting experience at both public and private companies within the retail sector. Most recently, she served as chief financial officer for Charlotte Russe, a women's clothing company, from 2010 to 2018. Prior to that, Johnson held senior financial positions at numerous companies including senior vice president of Finance at Petco from 2008 to 2010, chief financial officer for Old Navy, a division of Gap, from 2003 to 2007 and chief financial officer and senior vice president of Finance for Kohl's Department Stores from 1998 to 2003. Johnson received her BA from California State University, Fullerton and holds a Certified Public Accounting license from the state of California.

"I’m honoured to join Cherokee Global Brands’ board of directors," said Johnson. "The world of retail is quickly changing, and Cherokee is at the forefront of this revolution. I look forward to providing my financial expertise to the company as Cherokee continues to expand globally, through organic growth and select brand acquisitions, while deepening its retail and wholesale partnerships." To best serve the needs of the company on a go-forward basis, the board has voted to reduce its size from eight to five directors.

"I'd like to take a moment to thank our outgoing board members for their contributions," said Stupp. "Keith Hull has been a loyal supporter of Cherokee for over twenty years, and I want to acknowledge his valuable guidance over the past two decades. I'd also like to thank Carol Baiocchi and Robert Longnecker who have both provided solid expertise and professionalism as we addressed industry challenges and moved toward greater success. I look forward to working very closely with Patti and our remaining directors to successfully build upon our 360-degree platform of capabilities and position our company for long-term growth and increased profitability and stability going forward," Stupp concluded.
