Wolverine has announced that the company has appointed David W. McCreight as a new member of the Board of Directors. It has also announced the retirement of Joseph R. Gromek from the Board. Wolverine is a leading marketer and licensor of branded casual, active lifestyle, work, outdoor sport, athletic, children’s, and uniform footwear and apparel.

McCreight is a veteran of the footwear, apparel, and accessory industries and brings exceptional global experience from his thirty-year career. Most recently, he served as president of URBN and CEO of its Anthropologie Group, a global lifestyle brand featuring women’s apparel, accessories, and home decor. Prior to joining URBN, McCreight served as president of Under Armour and Lands’ End, Wolverine said in a press release.

McCreight holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia. He currently serves on the Board of Directors at CarMax.

“David has worked for some of the biggest names in apparel and retail, and we are thrilled to add him to our Board of Directors. His expertise in branding and merchandising, as well as his acumen in global direct-to-consumer and international business growth, will play a critical role in helping us drive our global growth agenda. His strong leadership and business experience will bring incredible value to our Board,” Blake Krueger, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Wolverine said.

“We are grateful to Joe for his eleven years of dedicated service to the company. His counsel, leadership and advice have been instrumental in helping us lead the business during a time of dynamic change in the global retail-consumer environment and make great progress against our global growth agenda. We are very appreciative of his assistance over the last decade,” Krueger added.

“I am very pleased to be joining the Board of Directors of Wolverine. Wolverine is a leader and innovator in the global footwear and apparel industry, and I look forward to working with my fellow board members to build on the company’s current successes while advancing future growth initiatives,” McCreight said.
