Tapestry appoints new chief financial officer
Tapestry, the owner of Kate Spade, Coach and Stuart Weitzman, has appointed Scott Roe as its new chief financial officer.
Due to take up his role on 1 June, he will be responsible for all finance functions and will lead the company’s strategy and consumer insights teams.
Roe will join Tapestry from VF Corporation where he has worked for 25 years and has been chief financial officer since 2015. He has also held a number of other senior management positions within the business including vice president, controller and chief accounting officer, vice president of finance for VF’s jeanswear and imagewear coalitions, and chief financial officer of the international business.
Prior to joining VF, he worked in the OEM automotive and basic materials industries after beginning his career at Ernst & Young.
Joanne Crevoiserat, chief executive of Tapestry, said: “Scott is a highly strategic CFO with twenty five years of experience in consumer, retail, and apparel businesses, and deep expertise successfully developing global multi-brand platforms. With a grounding in brand and operational finance roles, he manages from a commercial mindset balanced with enterprise thinking. As a leader, Scott is both dynamic and progressive, and believes in soliciting diverse perspectives while working to build and empower collaborative and high-performing teams. I am confident that Scott is the right leader and strategic business partner as we drive Tapestry’s next chapter of growth.”
The appointment means that Andrea Shaw Resnick, who has held the position of interim chief financial officer since July 2020, will assume the newly created role of chief communications officer, reporting to Crevoiserat. In addition, Christina Colone, currently vice president of investor relations, will be promoted to global head of investor relations.
Crevoiserat added: “Andrea is a strategic leader who ensured that we successfully navigated the pandemic and executed on our Acceleration Program as Interim CFO. Our entire leadership team appreciates her important and ongoing contributions to Tapestry. At the same time, Christina is ideally suited to lead our investor relations efforts, given her depth of experience and credibility with the investment community.”
