Nov '05
Fashion retailer Gap Inc has named Bobbi Silten as Chief Foundation Officer to lead Gap Foundation and oversee Gap Inc's philanthropic endeavors.

Paul Pressler, President and CEO of Gap Inc stated that Bobbi's lifelong passion for community giving and her commitments to engaging employees make her a great fit for Gap Inc. This position will allow Bobbi to draw on her rich history of volunteerism and mentoring and focus her energy on philanthropic efforts on a full-time basis.

Before joining Gap Inc, Ms. Silten was president of Dockers and Slates for Levi Strauss & Co. While with Levi Strauss, Ms. Silten was a member of the board of directors for the Levi Strauss Foundation and for the Levi Red Tab Foundation. She also served as Levi's executive sponsor for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation “Race for the Cure”.

Ms. Silten is a member of the advisory board for the Retail Management Institute, a program at Santa Clara University created to provide unique educational and career development opportunities for students and retail professionals.

Since 1976, Gap Foundation - the charitable arm of Gap Inc representing Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy - has spearheaded the company's community involvement efforts through grants, in-kind donations, community outreach and employee volunteer programs. The Foundation primarily supports organizations focused on children, youth and families.

Leading specialty retailer Gap Inc offers clothing, accessories and personal care products for men, women, children and babies under the Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Forth & Towne brands.
