Gant has promoted Karen Vogele to the position of executive vice-president of product and design.
Vogele was previously product creation director. She joined Gant in 2014 as manager of the global program management office before moving to the concept to consumer director position.
Vogele’s promotion means the company’s top executive management team is now divided equally between men and women.
Gant CEO Brian Grevy said: “I believe in a diverse team since it creates a better and more dynamic approach to the business. Karen’s excellent leadership skills, together with her strong consumer insights, are great additions to the global management team and will be key in our mission to grow and develop Gant further. The internal promotion of Karen and her journey within the company is proof of Gant’s career development focus where we encourage internal career growth.”
Gant has also created a new business area, global digital and IT. Former global IT director Carl Borg has stepped up to the role of executive vice-president of digital and IT.
