Outlet owner McArthurGlen Group has appointed former Under Armour executive, Susie McCabe as its first deputy chief executive.
McCabe joins McArthurGlen from Under Armour, where she was senior vice-president of global retail for the past four years. Before that, she spent 16 years at Ralph Lauren in a series of senior positions in both the full-price and outlet divisions.
In her new role, McCabe reports jointly to McArthurGlen chairman, JW (Joey) Kaempfer, and CEO Julia Calabrese.
Kaempfer said: “Julia and I are delighted to welcome Susie in this newly created position. Her extensive retail and management experience and her deep knowledge of satisfying the customer will be invaluable as we continue to drive growth, primarily by focusing on the experience of our guests and our brand partners.”
McCabe said: “I have worked closely with McArthurGlen from the position of a brand partner for many years. They are the best management team in the outlet business.”
