VF Corporation names new VP, general counsel for Kontoor
VF Corporation, a global leader in branded lifestyle apparel, footwear, and accessories, has announced that the company has named Laurel Krueger as the new vice president, general counsel of Kontoor Brands. Kontoor is the independent, publicly traded company that will result from the previously announced separation of VF’s Jeanswear organisation.

In this role, Krueger will oversee Kontoor Brands’ legal function, including compliance, mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance. She will serve on Kontoor Brands’ executive management team, reporting directly to the CEO, Scott Baxter, effective immediately, VF Corporation said.

“Laurel is a seasoned legal executive with nearly 20 years of experience, including in the retail industry. Her breadth of leadership experience with multinational corporations will be an asset to our team as we embark on our new journey as an independent company and grow our business in the denim and apparel categories,” Baxter said.

“Extraordinary talent will be critical in establishing Kontoor Brands as a thriving independent organisation, and Laurel is a great addition to the strong bench of leadership that has been appointed to date,” Steve Rendle, chairman, president, and CEO of VF Corporation said.

Krueger joins Kontoor Brands from Signet Jewelers, the world’s largest retailer of diamond jewellery, where she served as executive vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary. She previously held a variety of legal leadership roles at publicly traded companies in retail and manufacturing, including Federal-Mogul Corporation, Tecumseh Products Company, and Borders Group.

Krueger earned a bachelor’s degree with high distinction from the University of Michigan-Dearborn. She earned a law degree from the University of Michigan Law School, and a Master of Business Administration with distinction from the University of Michigan-Dearborn School of Management. (GK)
