Gap, global retailer of clothing, accessories, and personal care products for men, women, and children under the Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, and Athleta brands, has elected three new members on its board of directors - Amy Bohutinsky, COO of Zillow Group, John Fisher, co-founder and general partner of Sansome Partners, and Lexi Reese, COO of Gusto.

The three will join Gap’s board of directors effective November 1, 2018.

Gap Inc. is a leading global retailer offering clothing, accessories, and personal care products for men, women, and children under the Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, and Athleta brands.

“We are pleased to welcome three new members to our board of directors,” said Bob Fisher, chairman of the board, Gap. “Each of our new directors brings a diverse and solid understanding of today’s consumer, their needs, and the opportunities within the retail industry. Amy and Lexi have proven track records driving critical business decisions at the intersection of technology and commerce. John’s deep understanding of the company and substantial financial acumen will be immensely valuable to our board.”

Bohutinsky is currently chief operating officer of Zillow Group. As COO, Bohutinsky oversees multiple aspects of the company’s multi-brand strategy, as well as its people organisation, marketing, communications, consumer care and facilities. Bohutinsky is one of Zillow Group’s earliest employees, joining the team, pre-launch, in 2005. Prior to her current role as COO, Bohutinsky served as its chief marketing officer. Bohutinsky currently serves on the board of mobile hotel-booking service HotelTonight, and previously served on the board of Avvo.

Prior to joining Zillow, Bohutinsky led communications for Hotwire, an Internet travel company and began her career as a broadcast journalist, working for various NBC and ABC news affiliates.

Fisher is co-founder and general partner of Sansome Partners, an investment management firm located in San Francisco. He also serves as managing partner of the Oakland A’s and San Jose Earthquakes. A son of company founders Doris and Don Fisher, Fisher worked in real estate development prior to starting his investment firm. Additionally, he serves as the chairman of the KIPP Foundation Board and as senior advisor to the Fisher Fund.

Reese is currently the chief operating officer of Gusto. She empowers the technology company's business teams, which include customer experience, insights and operations, marketing and sales. Since joining Gusto in 2015, Reese has been instrumental in helping to more than triple the company’s customer base to serve more than one per cent of the nation’s businesses while strategically expanding their core payroll service to include employee benefits and human resources services. Never losing sight of the customer during this robust growth, the company has consistently achieved an industry-leading Net Promoter Score (NPS) of more than 70.

Before joining Gusto, Reese served as vice president of programmatic sales and strategy globally at Google and led many business development, sales and marketing initiatives at American Express. (SV)
