VF Corp has announced the appointment of Denny Bruce to the position of Global Brand President, Dickies, effective from July 1, 2019. He reports to Curt Holtz, executive vice president and group president, Workwear. The company is a leading apparel, footwear, and accessories companies with socially and environmentally responsible operations.

“Dickies is an iconic brand that has stood alongside generations of proud workers, equipping them with tough, durable workwear that has enabled them to make and shape our world. At the same time, the brand’s heritage and authenticity has transcended the workwear category and elevated its cultural relevance as a lifestyle brand in markets around the world. As the brand enters a new phase of growth and expansion, Denny will bring together our international teams to drive a consistent global experience that engages consumers in new ways. We are highly confident in the prospects for this exciting brand and look forward to working with Denny as we pursue the many opportunities ahead,” Holtz said in a press release.

Bruce will be responsible for all aspects of the brand’s global operations and performance. He will ensure the brand continues delivering compelling products supported by experiential campaigns that drive consumer acquisition. He will oversee the brand’s wholesale and direct-to-consumer businesses, including a focus on digital. Bruce will also be responsible for continually strengthening the Dickies team and its capabilities to drive profitable growth through the activation of its strategic plan globally.

Prior to joining VF, Bruce was executive vice president of sales, product and marketing at Traeger Pellet Grills. There, he and his team drove disruptive growth in a $10 billion industry and quadrupled the company’s revenue and earnings during a four-year period. Before that, Bruce was part of the leadership team at Skullcandy where he was vice president of domestic sales.

“I’m honoured to be joining VF and leading the Dickies brand. Dickies embodies a strong work ethic, a dedication to your craft and taking pride in the work as much as the finished product. I look forward to partnering with the global teams to leverage the brand’s well-earned reputation and consumer loyalty to advance the long-term vision and accelerate the global growth strategy,” Bruce said.

Philip Williamson, former CEO of Williamson-Dickie, will move into a non-operating brand ambassador role, allowing him to lend his invaluable experience and knowledge of the Dickies brand. Williamson will work closely with Bruce to advance the brand’s strategic initiatives. (GK)
