In the role of General Manager, Lifestyle, Casagrande will be responsible for aligning the category's global capabilities and strengthen both the PF Flyers and New Balance brands across all markets.

Casagrande's efforts in the recent years with New Balance-owned PF Flyers brand has built a strong foundation of experience in the Lifestyle and fashion world of footwear. “Casagrande's knowledge of the dynamic lifestyle market combined with his leadership abilities will allow us to further establish New Balance's Lifestyle presence in the global footwear industry,” stated Joe Preston, Executive Vice President, Global Footwear, New Balance.

Casagrande earned his Masters in Business Administration from Georgetown University and a Bachelor of Arts from Ithaca College. Casagrande currently resides in Jamaica Plain, MA.

Furthermore, Steve Gardner joins New Balance as the Strategic Business Unit Manager for Lifestyle. Gardner will be responsible for overseeing the development and implementation of strategies to achieve brand and financial objectives for the Lifestyle business on a global level.
