These appointments will bring the number of directors on the company’s Board to 13.

Patrice Louvet, president and chief executive officer, said, “Angela and Mike are among the most respected leaders in the business. They each have driven strong growth and created superior value at some of the best-known brands in retail, and I know we will benefit greatly from their experience and fresh perspective as we continue to elevate our brand; evolve our product, marketing and shopping experience; expand our digital and international presence; and increase productivity.”

Ahrendts has served as senior vice president of retail at Apple Inc., since May 2014. She oversees strategy, real estate, and development, and operations of Apple’s physical stores, online store and contact centres.

Ahrendts said, “I have admired Ralph and been inspired by his pure global lifestyle vision for many years. It is an honour to join this Board as he and Patrice continue to evolve and expand his incredible aesthetic.”

George was named president and CEO of Qurate Retail, Inc., in March 2018, a leading global video and ecommerce retailer which includes: QVC, HSN, zulily, Ballard Designs, Frontgate, Garnet Hill, Grandin Road and Improvements. George serves on the Boards of Qurate Retail, Inc., Brinker International, the National Retail Federation and the National Constitution Centre.
