Over the past year, the company successfully opened stores across Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia, including the launch of its digital channels within each region, as well as in mainland China through a limited offering in partnership with Tmall, said a press release by the company. In December, the company also opened an Asian headquarter in Singapore to support the business across the region.
The company has appointed Lew Kimble to the role of executive vice president and chief executive officer – Asia Pacific. In his new role, Kimble will oversee Asia’s growth plan, including driving brand strategy and store growth in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia, and exploring additional expansion opportunities. He will also lead the effort to strengthen the digital channels, both owned websites and Tmall, and supply chain capabilities within the region.
As part of the transition, Vijay Talwar has been promoted to executive vice president and chief executive officer – EMEA. Talwar will focus on driving productivity and capitalising on growth opportunities, while furthering an elevated multi-channel experience across EMEA. In his new position, he will oversee strategic direction for the Foot Locker Europe and Runners Point Group brands, including franchise operations in the Middle East, as well as oversee operational functions including finance, marketing, merchandising, and in-store customer experience.
“Lew and Vijay have done an outstanding job leading their respective teams and functions to deliver against our long-term growth initiatives,” said Richard Johnson, chairman and chief executive officer, Foot Locker. “With our new organisational structure, I am confident that their powerful leadership combined with Jake’s strong leadership in North America will serve as a catalyst to grow the core businesses within each respective region and pursue expansion opportunities, both in our stores and through our digital platforms internationally.” (PC)
