Boden adds former Urban Outfitters CEO to board

Boden has named Glen Senk, former chief executive of Urban Outfitters, as a non-executive director.

Senk began his career at Bloomingdale’s in 1981, rising to senior vice-president and managing director of Bloomingdale’s By Mail.

In 1989 he became chief executive of London-based Habitat International Merchandise and Marketing Group. Returning to the US in 1992, Senk joined Williams-Sonoma as senior vice-president.

In 1994, Senk joined Urban Outfitters as president of Anthropologie, then a single-store prototype.

While growing Anthropologie into a billion-dollar business, he also assumed responsibility for the Free People brand. He was elected to the board in 2004 and became CEO of Urban Outfitters in 2007.

From 2012 to 2014, Glen served as CEO of fine jeweller David Yurman. In 2014 he launched his own consumer investment company, Front Row Partners, where he currently serves as chairman and CEO.

Julian Granville, executive chairman of Boden, said Senk’s knowledge of the US market and commitment to building international brands “will be invaluable”.

Boden trades in more than 60 countries worldwide, and has more than 1,000 employees.

The appointment is effective immediately.
